    ROUND 2 PIONEER & SCALEXTRIC TRANS AM - CASCADES RACEWAY

    After being away for a couple months it's back to Dan's in just 2 weeks for the
    second round of the Trans Am cars . Dan's track worked well with the PG XPG
    urethane tires in both the IROC and Series races .

    HOLIDAY KING ; Car , well this week it's a scaley 2 wheeler . It was RamJet's
    so it was yellow and we've never ran one on a routed track . A steep learning
    curve but some good times by the end of the stage .

    To Vic , To Pat and To Roger

    HOLIDAY IROC ; Cars , Dan's Carrera DTM's . The Cars loved the track and
    gave some incredibly close racing . With only 2 laps separating the top 4 racers .
    Thanks for a great set of IROC cars !

    To Roger , To Greg and To Dan

    PIONEER & SCALEXTRIC TRANS AM ; The field was pretty even with 3
    Mustang's and 3 Camaro's . Again the cars performed like champs with many
    heats of close competitive racing . Staying in the slot was the only edge .
    Mustang's took 3 of the top 4 positions .

    To Pat , To Dan and To RamJet

      ROUND 3 PIONEER & SCALEXTRIC TRANS AM - VICTORY LANE

      To Vic's for the 3rd Round of the Trans Am Series . It's hard to believe but
      it's been six years sense it all started for EMSA . A step back to our first
      Series . Same Car for a few of us and as before a competitive series with
      races going down to the last heat .

      HOLIDAY KING ; Car , Roger's black Slot-It AEG Mercedes Sauber C9
      Group C car . Fitted with much more motor and longer gearing for the big
      tracks . Tires we're weak but once it got going , it got going !

      To Greg To Roger and To Vic

      HOLIDAY IROC ; Car's , Vic's Pro Slot PorscheGT2's . As always a fun set
      giving us some great side by side racing . The yellow car in lane 1 was a
      little off the pace of the others but we all had to take our lumps .

      [/B] To greg , to Roger and To Pat

      http://www.slotcarillustrated.com/po...1&d=1514079953

      PIONEER & SCALEXTRIC TRANS AM ; So far it's been the Greg and Roger
      show , Will it continue ? In the first 2 rounds the Mustangs have had their
      way with the Chevy's . This week after two less than stellar rounds Greg
      found the wheels to his 69 Penske Camaro and completed the Hat Trick !

        ROUND 4 PIONEER & SCALEXTRIC TRAN AM - SCALERACING CENTER

        Starting the New Year at the Center , first with the Yearly Meeting and then
        the racing . As far as the rules and race format nothing has changed . After
        this many years EMSA seems to have it down where it all works for everyone
        involved .

        HOLIDAY KING ; Back to the strip for this weeks stage with a 959 Porsche
        up against a Subaru STI . The 959 held a early edge the STI . fortunately we
        just score off the reaction time . With the RT's in the hundredths we moved
        the decimal 1 to the right to maintain Stage gaps .

        To Bob , To Pat and To Clark

        HOLIDAY IROC ; Being behind the eight ball most the day in my haste to get
        to Alan's I spaced on the IROC cars . Alan graciously offered up his Megane's
        for the segment . They gave us a great race with 2 sectors deciding the winner
        and only 1 lap separating Podium .

        To Alan , To Roger and To Pat

        POINEER & SCALEXTRIC TRANS AM ; With the help form Baba Loo going into
        turn 1 on the first lap and a miscue of of own in the second minute I managed
        2 laps in the first heat . The race became the Roger & Roger show with RamJet
        hanging on for the win . With some help from the racing Gods and a couple
        unlucky offs for Greg I crawled back to land on the Podium .

        To RamJet , To Roger and To Pat

          ROUND 5 PIONEER & SCALEXTRIC TRANS AM - RAINIER RACEWAYS

          Up to Greg's and Rainier Raceways for the 5th Round of the Trans Am Series .
          Just sitting around waiting for Roger when I get a call from Dan asking if we
          had room for another rider . (Certainly) so Dan makes his racing debut at
          Greg's . It's a steep learning curve but Dan was up to the challenge .

          HOLIDAY KING ; Car , we started with Roger's Slot-It GT 40 Greg made
          it Roger didn't . A quick repair and half a lap later the same . So a restart
          was in order this time around running Dan's Slot-It Gulf 962 . I'm not sure
          on the tires but one could get about 3 quick laps before times started to
          fade .

          To Vic , To Greg and To Pat

          PIONEER & SCALEY TRANS AM ; I'm not sure whats going on with me lately
          but this is the second week in a row I've started out the Series Race with a
          single digit heat . I wasn't the only one to have off issues as every one had
          their moments . Dan had an excuse with it being his first visit but Greg , Vic
          and Roger all took their turns off the track . In the end it was Vic and myself
          tied for the lead . I with 1 more lap and Vic with one more Win .

          To Vic , To Pat and To Greg


          HOLIDAY IROC ; Cars , Scaley NASCAR Digital . Things started up with a
          small glitch as lanes 1&2's controllers we're flip flopped . No biggy , a quick fix
          by Greg and we we're off and running . About 3 heats into the race the car in
          lane 1 caught a bug and refused to continue . It was getting late so we called
          it a night .

            ROUND 6 PIONEER & SCALEXTRIC TRANS AM - THE BRICKYARD

            Out to Bob's with hand full of vintage Japanese Vinyl LP's for Bob to sit
            back and enjoy on his new Blumenstein Speakers and amps . Hopefully
            with the Sheffield , Dave Grusin and Ajia albums he'll hear things he's
            never heard before or at least in a different way . Most importantly was
            Russell back having a good time at the track . Great to see you

            HOLIDAY KING ; Car , well Roger spent some time last week on his
            Slot-It GT40's lead wires so Bob said lets give it a try . Roger led things
            off and quickly dropped into the high 7's . Vic took it down another 4 one
            thousendth's . Bob and I in the 8.0's then RamJet makes up for some bad
            stages with a 7.877 to take the win .

            To RamJet , To Vic and To Roger

            HOLIDAY IROC ; Cars , Scaleys from over the pond a MGB , Cortina , XKE
            and a token GT40 to round out the field . Couple heats into the segment
            Bob serves up some music from the Spy Who Shagged me to go with the
            Austin Powers Jag . A race of off track excursions as RamJet once again
            lands on the top set of the Podium .

            To RamJet , To Pat and To Vic

            http://www.slotcarillustrated.com/po...1&d=1516245957

            PIONEER & SCALEXTRIC TRANS AM ; For the nights finale Russ requests
            a little Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble . Well the House Was Rockin
            we were racing on a Tightrope and most of us got caught in the Crossfire .
            If one concentrated on the music and not the racing or the track I can say
            it went pretty well . RamJet had a great night just missing the Hat Trick by
            one spot . (sorry Rog)

              ROUND 7 PIONEER & SCALEXTRIC TRANS AM - R AND S RACEWAYS

              It's been far to long but EMSA makes it back to one of our favorite Venues
              as Russ opens the doors to his new raceway . A routed track on his old table
              8 X 20 . It has about a 2 foot incline on the back stretch followed by his own
              version of the Corkscrew making it's way back to the infield . Throw in the
              fuel management system and that sets the stage for some fun racing .

              HOLIDAY KING ; Car , Vic's Vanquish McLaren , Running a straight axel and
              shod with huge NSR Super Grip Tires . The track or the tires started things
              off a little green as the first 3 slipped and slid around the track . Things got
              better as Dan set the gap between 1st and last to nearly 3 tenths .


              To Dan , To Roger and To John Q

              HOLIDAY IROC ; Cars , Russ rolled out a set off Spirit 406 Silhouette's , quick
              cars and other than lanes 1 & 2 being a little slick gave us a great introduction
              to the nuance's of the track . The Red car in lane 4 started strong early in the
              segment with the Silver car from lane 3 finishing as the quickest .

              To Vic , To Pat and to Dan

              http://www.slotcarillustrated.com/po...1&d=1517072399

              PIONEER & SCALEXTRIC TRANS AM ; After the warm up segment and the
              introduction to fueled racing it was time to get to it . The Paul Gage urethanes
              adapted well to the track as all lanes held their own . Dan's Green , Alan Green
              Camaro was super quick and figured to be the car to beat . We all had our heats
              with wins spread a crossed the board . Dan led the way with Laps and Wins for
              the night capping off a stellar evening for the young man from Lacey .

                    FINAL ROUND PIONEER & SCALEXTRIC TRANS AM - MASENCHAMPS

                    With new garage lights installed this run at Blair's wasn't a twilight event
                    like encountered the last time through . Moved the heater to another wall
                    outlet and it's time to get things started .

                    HOLIDAY KING ; Car , Roger's Red Monogram Lola equipped with a Scale
                    Auto motor and a set of ScaleAuto white striped foamy's worn down to the
                    minimum as the axle gear rattled the track on every acceleration . Roger
                    showed us all who owned the car setting the pace and taking the win by
                    nearly 4 one hundredth's . After running leadoff in every stage sense the
                    3rd race Greg holds on for the series win .

                    To Roger , To Pat and to Greg

                    HOLIDAY IROC ; Car's , Blair rolls out a set of Scaley BMW Z4's shod with
                    new Slot-It N18's . The cars were pretty equal and ran very smooth . I was
                    fortunate to pull off my best Tim Elvins impression only getting 4 laps in the
                    first heat but conveniently didn't open the DS on Race Manager and got a
                    restart . Didn't help that much , still landing 4th but it gave us the best race
                    of the night with only 2 laps separating the top 4 .

                    To Vic to Blair and to RamJet

                    Pioneer & Scalextric Trans Am ; My old green Mustang was on point for the
                    Finale . Bouncing down the track all night long . I was able to stay out of most
                    everyones way throughout the night . There were plenty of great heats and a
                    lot that went to the wire . Off's told the story this week
