Last Friday night the first Nascar race of the New Year was run. 5 amateurs made up the field in the first race of the night. Jim Nelson didn’t have the results he was looking for as a rare DNF forced him to watch the remainder of the race from the sidelines. The battle all race long for the lead was between Robert Hanlen, and Dave Parsons. After exchanging the lead a couple times, David was able to pull away a bit and go on to win. Robert finished a strong 2nd, and he was followed by Nicholas Burgess.
The expert group had 7 racers this week. Lee was looking to make it 5 in a row, but came up just a little short. Myself and Tom Hansen found ourselves in a good race for the lead. Fortunately for me I had some lanes that I really like to finish up my race, and was able to take the win. Tom was a close 2nd, and Lee finished in 3rd.
The Nascar class races every Friday night at 7pm, and the next series race is Saturday January 20th at 1pm.
