The "How'd Ya Do?" thread is a fun spot where forum members can relate their racing results with one another. I thought it would be fun and got a LOT of intrest when it was posted on the "Pure Street" page. Maybe here on the "Results" page we can attract members who race different classes to share their weekends with us. C'mon guys,let's hear it...How'd Ya Do?

Bad luck is all I got to say. I started the heat race and got a 5-6 car lead by turn 2 and stretched it out to the straitaway lead. I ******* up and went to the rutted up bottom in turn 1 and caused my tire to come off the bead. THe caution came out for another car. I stayed out there and led 3 more laps on the rim and finally I ******* up again and they trained me I went to 6 and that is where I finished. In the feature I got up to 5 and a guy got in them dang ruts and got loose so I went high to avoid him and smacked the wall did not loose a spot. but 2 laps later the radiator came out I guess from the jarred it out. Oh well next race I will do better

Way to go Eljojo!!! the first is always the best.
Our first night was looking like it was going to get rained out and I had military commitments EARLY the next day so I stayed home. No rain and two cars blew up. I should have went. Next week looks like rain.

Is this just for racers?

2 races so far this season.
1st night:
104 cars. Dq'd 3 cars total. One went insane and threw a cone at me. He got the boot for the season. Got done at 12:15. Too late. We'll try a different line up idea next week.

2nd night:
102 cars. One mod upside down. One Hobby claim. Third one in three years but first two were refusals.

Congratulations Eljojo on your first win.

We ran Gascity Speedway, in IN.We started up front in heat race,won it by over a straitaway,started 7th in feature,by the time we got up to second place,leader had a straitaway on us,the caution flag came out with four laps to go,but they stuck 3 lap cars between me and the leader.We have a cone in the middle of backstretch,you can't pass until you get by the cone,anyway the leader started the race coming out of turn two,by the time we got to the cone and got by the lap cars the leader had half a straitaway on us.I think we had a little something for him we just ran out of time.
