Tomorrow November 10th is the first race in the New Mid-America Hardbody series on the Gerding Tri-Oval. The Saturday night race program begins at 6 PM; plan to be at the raceway early if you wish to test and tune.

Special all-day racers track access and pit pass available.

Springlike weather in the greater Chicago area apparently kept many racers busy with their pre-winter "honey do" projects and away from the raceway. In spite of that, there was a decent turnout for the first event of a new series...

Hard Body Series Race #1 results
Run on the on the Gerding tri-oval

Brian Meharry 325 laps (best lap) 2.79 Purple
Dustin Senft 313 laps 2.73 Blue
Steve McReady 296 laps 2.57 White
Al Reschke 263 laps 3.01 Black
Joe Reschke 262 laps 3.07 Orange
MG Brown 257 laps 2.79 White

Next series race 11/24/12 on the Chris Dadds Lazy 8 - Mid-America's saturday night racing program begins at 6:00 PM. Plan to arrive early if you need test and tune time.
