Spring racing in Virginia - 03/09/13 11:13 PM

Today's Super Stock race was a blast from the past, as we visited Shawn Molter's (1991 HOPRA SS Champ) in Suffolk, Virginia on a gorgeous day. It's been 7 years since we last raced on the former HobbyTown track, so a few of the old guard remembered running on it. This race was a fund raising event for the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life. We did raise $184 to support Kristi Molter's race fund raising. The C Main got pretty crazy with the four starters all showing up in "Smurf" Blue paint, which caused a few mixups, but the racing was pretty close. But not as close as the B Main, as these guys had a very clean battle, which helped them come up the overall standings, with Ronnie Jamerson making it to 4th, and the battling Edwards brothers, came in 5th and 6th. The A Main, saw the race host drive a foreign car from FL, drive away from Vern Dew and Steve Jones, with their foreign WA cars. Tom Bowman, drove a USA car, but found only one lane working to his satisfaction...which was not a recipe for a good result. Speaking of recipes, how about sharing the delish bbq recipe with the group, Shawn? As always, we enjoyed great food, great racing, great camaraderie and great Spring weather.
