Default Saturday, March 5 Race Results.

Another Saturday with some racing, except that a couple years ago the Saturday Magnet racing would draw an average of 12 to 15 racers each week and the Monday No-Magnet racing would usually get 5 to 8 racers. Now the Monday No-Magnet races draw the large number of racers and Saturdays is usually lucky to have enough racers for anything other than a Crash & Burn Race.
This week we had 5 racers for Nascar Magnet Crash & Burn Racing
was Steve with 67.95 laps
was Yellow Dog with 65.55 laps
was B.H.R. with 62.70 laps
4th was Will with 57.70 laps (would have tied for third if he didn't lose 5 laps for number of off's)
5th was John with 53.65 laps
Fastest lap was 10.192 seconds by Steve on white lane
Unfortunately that was all the racing there was.

Default Josh

It is too bad that he had to sell his cars. But sounds like the parents are doing a good job teaching him a lesson. Get them grades up Josh! Study hard and go to college. That makes it easier to get a good job. Joining the armed forces is also a good way to get an education and a good job. Good luck, don't worry about getting out on your own too soon. Make your folks proud and do yourself a favor, it's your future. After you get a good education and a good job you can buy all Steve's cars and a real GT car!
Jeff - Good Luck Josh!

Default Race results for April 16, 2011

After a week with out and "official" Saturday Magnet racing, Ace Hobbies did have some Crash & Burn magnet Nascar Racing with some help From Nick of "Super-Tires" at the button. where he gave all who participated at $10.00 store credit afterward.
was Russ with 70.30 laps
was Steve with 65.70 laps
was Will with 61.55 laps
4th was Todd with 58.50 laps
Due to a mix up on the computer there are no records of the fastest laps.

Ace Hobbies could hear from some of the older regulars once in a while such as Glitch, Bagman, Larry, Root Road, Fatman, Mark, T-Bone, Boobie, Thomas, and any other regular I haven't mentioned here.
As a possiblity, I wonder if we should have some non-magnet racing on Saturdays at 12 volts and only have some magnet racing if there were only enough magnet racers show up to have a race on their own rights. We did this a couple years ago to some success into the summer then. I know that not every one can show up at either Monday nights or on Saturdays. How about having some no-magnet racing on Friday nights since the regular "Speed-Crazed" Southtowners seem to be doing other things now? Just some Ideas I am thowing out there to help support Ron.

No-mag guys have been showing up on Friday nights to test, learn and get set-up for Mondays. And most of them have gotten faster.

Default No racing at Ace on Satuurday, April 23, 2011

BHR, Will, AL & his Grandson, Tom, Steve, and T-Bone were all at ACe for a while. However T-Bone only had magnet cars, BHR, Tom & Will only had their no-magnet cars with only Steve & Will with both, and there just wasn't any agreement to have any races. However everyone who had no-magnet cars tested them out, and AL's grandson ran one of his magnet cars at 12V. However, Ron left some written sheets inmdicating that He and Yellow Dog tested their C2's on Friday night, and while the best that ROn could do was 11.082 seconds but that Yellow Dog was able to get below 11 seconds with a couple different C2's

Default Finally some Magnet Racing on Sat. 5-21-11

In a surprise for Saturday, May 21, 2011 when the weater was finally nice outside on a morning when most people would probably be catching up with yard work after a seemly endless rain the last several weeks withou a chance to mow lawns, enough Racers showed up to have both marshalled Magnet and Non-magnet races.

1st Race was a Semi-Marshalled Magnet Nascar race
was Russ with 71.30 laps
was AL with 68.60 laps
was Steve with 66.60 laps
4th was Glitch Team (Glitch & Sonic-2 heats each) with 63.15 laps
5th was Bill with 62.45 laps
6th was John with 60.15 laps
Fastest lap was 9.672 seconds by Russ on Yellow lane, Thanks to Tom for doing the Button

2nd Race was a Semi-Marshalled Magnet GT race.
was Glitch with 67.10 laps
was Steve with 66.70 laps
was AL with 65.50 laps
4th was Sonic with 63.50 laps
5th was Bill with 61.25 laps
6th was John with 58.25 laps
Fastest lap was 9.517 seconds by Steve on Red Lane. Thanks to Tom and C-Bill for doing button.

The 3rd and Final race of the day was a No-Magnet Semi-Marshalled DP Race
was Yellow Dog with 59.85 laps by 3 inches over 2nd
was Tom with 59.85 laps
was Russ with 59.05 laps
4th was AL with 58.60 laps
5th was C-Bill with 58.20 laps
6th was Steve with 55.70 laps
Fastest Lap was 11.515 seconds by Russ on both Yellow ans White lanes. Thanks to John for doing some marshalling.

We/ve had a request from Ron to consider the following. Apparently a couple people in the later Saturday Afternoons like to race No-Magnet Monogram and MRRC type cars and would like to have some racing with others. Speaking for myself, after spending nearly 3-5 hours at Ace on Saurdays from 10-11 AM to 2-3 PM, I might be willing to saty long for this kind of racing, but only if these guys were to show up at Ace by 3 PM at the latest. By that time in the afternoon, I usually don't feel like sticking around for a couple of guys who "Maybe" will show up by 4 PM which is the latest you vould start any race on Saturday Afternoons at the very latest. From what I know, Tom and AL either have to get back home to their wives early or need to do a couple other things before they do go home. C-Bill doesn't like to do Crash and Burn racing which is what I am afraid this would probably only be at best. Perhaps Jeff "BHR" would be interested if he is not one of these individuals already. I don't know about Glitch, Fatman, Root Road, T-Bone, Boobie, Bagman, Lou, Will or any of the others would be interested or not. I think that the main thing is that these guys need to show up early enough on Saturday afternoons to let some of regulars know that they are intersted befor everyone leaves for the day, as no one likes to wait for these gys to "Maybe" show up.

Default Saturday, Oct 1, Racing Results

Sorry I haven't reported in sooner but I had problems getting to a computer connected to the internet after they racing.

Well, a new Season of Racing on Saturdays has reached Ace Hobbies with a couple of usual Saturday type of Magnet Racing.
!st Race was Magnet Stock Nascar's dur mainly for a couple "Newbie" Racers and an old Racers that have't been around for a while. "Nick" of SuperTire fame was there with his son and grandkid to hand out some Sore Credit Slips to everyone who participated in the Nascar race.
was Yellow Dog with his SCX with 70.40 laps
was Steve with 67.95 laps
was Glitch with 67.05 laps
4th was AL with 66.55 laps
5th was B.H.R. with 65.55 laps
6th was Tom with 63.75 laps
7th was Todd with 61.75 laps
8th was Alex with 58.95 laps
The race was made more exciting when two of the experienced racers kinda showed the "Newbies" how not to be racing by Taking each other out (AL & Tom went as far as to even wiat for each other on the track to do this) There were enough interested spectators to have some help with marshalling so this was a marshalled race. Fastest lap was 9.752 seconds by Yellow Dog on Black lane.

The second race was magnet GT's
was AL with 69.85 laps
was Tom with 69.55 laps
was Glitch with 69.45 laps
4th was Yellow Dog with 68.35 laps
5th was Steve with 67.85 laps
6th was (Newbie) T.J. with 56.50 laps
7th was (Newbie) "Guppy" with 55.10 laps
8th was Todd with 54.10 laps

T.J. & Guppy (his father) came by on Monday and at least he seams interested in trying out the "No-Magnet" type of racing then and we will probleby be seeing more of them on Saturdays. Any of you other ols saturday regulars , everyone at Ace would like to see you back again, Lou, Fatman, Root Road, T-Bone, Boobie and everyone else I haven't mentioned.
