      Sorry, to Dave for being left out of the second race. When people show up for a night of racing, they shouldn't be left out just to save a couple of seconds. Please take the time to check the racer list before hitting OK, OK?
      See ya all next week,

        • Computer "problems" on 4/11

          Another fun night of racing at Ace Hobby! The jokes & commentary were flying almost as fast as
          the cars.

          The erratic beginning due to a computer situation was overcome, and racing began again.

          My apologies for any part I played with the computer problem.
          I started the race computer up Friday afternoon, and looking back, I may have inadvertently started the race program twice.
          Note to self: WAIT after clicking on the race program ONCE. It takes a few seconds for the "hourglass" icon to come up, indicating that the program has began running.

          Again, sorry.

          Tom

            • Friday Night Results Yellow Dog Raceway April 11, 2014

              Well, I just knew the way the night started that it had to be a FULL MOON!!!!!!

              Wait, Ron just said the moon isn't full until April 15th. Well if that's true, and we all know Ron does not tell lies, even little white lies. Then what was the problem?

              GREMLINS!!! Little tiny gremlins that inhabit Ace Hobby and Fitness Center. But, Russ wasn't even there.

              Red - Brian - 9.666


              Well that takes care of the results for the night. Results do not tell the whole story. Great racing duels by several of the cars or lets say drivers. Some spectacular mishaps. Great marshaling.
              I would like to point out the Quaking State Master Marshaler for the evening and that would be Al. It seems he had to keep touching my car and I just wanted everyone to know what a great job he did.

              During the evening I heard someone say that "Little men race little cars", I think they meant HO cars, however I am not sure who they were referring to, but some of you may.

              Thanks to Butch - The Master Buttonier.

              To Ron for the track and the time.

              For the effort and encouragement we all receive from our fellow racers.

              One more thing - can we cut back on the food. You know I have no self control. I'm starting to get a belly. Oh, excuse me - a bigger belly. Somebody stop me, please.

              See you all next week,

              Max

                        • Monday night racing - the cars & drivers were FAST

                          Wow. The cars and drivers were really hooked up last night!
                          With 11 racers in Can Am & Group C2, 70 laps might have got you an 8th or 9th place finish.

                          The Matra's are coming in as viable Can Am competitors. Not as fast as Al's blue McLaren
                          (which he left in his race box, in order to give his Matra a try).

                          The new yellow Porsche 962 KH is proving to be pretty quick, also.

                          After seeing the race results posting this evening (thanks Al !):
                          Another Wow! Record lap totals in Can Am only .10 less than Group C. Who would have "thunk it".
                          And, the NSR Can Am lap record upped by that much.
                          Four Group C cars with more than 73 laps!

                              Fastest Laps All By Russ

                              Yellow - 9.150
                              White - 9.209
                              Blue - 9.097
                              Red - 9.345


                              I thought about putting my name in for all the fastest laps thinking someone
                              might catch it but I wasn't that confident anyone would.

                              I'm sorry, I really know someone would....

                              Thanks to Butch the Button Man. He did receive a boo from Russ when he offered to hold-up
                              the race if Ron needed to repair his car.

                              Just in case anyone wanted to know the food arrived just as the first heat of the evening ended.

                              Until next week,

                              Max
