First Race on the braided oval

Postby Junior » Sat Apr 23, 2016 8:08 pm

First official race on the oval since it was braided.
Good turn out, nine racers and lots of laughs, good way to end the work week.

We ran the 1/32 Sportsmans, they ran great on the oval, but a little too much speed for resin cars with no bumpers. It should rub out.... Sorry Norb!

The track looks great guys!

Bummer about Norb's Falcon. That is a great little car.

That is one sad lookin' Falcon. Be sure you give us a picture when you fix it, Norb.

Uh-oh! Say, maybe those frame-mounted bumpers aren't just for looks after all. You guys play hard; that may have to be a standard feature.

Yes those things happen. No big deal. The Falcon will live again.
I'm not even sure who hit me but accidents happen. Shoe-Goo is your friend! :banana-dance:
