Here are some quick race results/lap totals:

1st place: Team Silk Cut 3021 laps/61.79 actual miles
2nd place: Group 33 2954 laps/60.42 actual miles
3rd place: Team Green 2941 laps/60.16 actual miles
4th place: Team Homer 2813 laps/57.54 actual miles
5th place: Team Damman 2530 laps/51.75 actual miles

Congradulations to Lewis Wuori and Danny Hamby, for the six hours of racing they averaged 15.1 feet per second(dwell on that thought for a few moments, that is with a "stock G3" and slip on silicones)
A huge "hats off"(there is a pun there just for "Homer" and anyone who has been to his home) to Group 33 and Team Homer, they were short one team member so the split the driving duties of four drivers amoung the three of them. Jeffrey Stillwell, Mika Malhourn, and Steve Pitts are highly commended.
Team Green, Steve Asesta and Dusty Roberts are to be highly commneded, too. This was Steve's first race with an HO car and Dusty's second.
Team Damman, Donnie Donovant and Mike Toney, could only stay for half of the race, so a poor substitute for a relief driver(me) what stuck into the fray.
The car had a few issues developing as I ran it on the inside yellow lane of the track...... mainly, it was really slow. I put a new motor/endbell/magnet assembly from another car of mine into it for my second segment and REALLY brought the car to life!!! The best lap total for the red lane for the day was 390 (Team Silk Cut) and I had a total of 386. Unfortunately, for some odd reason the car went "out to lunch" in the handling dept. in the Blue lane, which I consider the best lane on the track. After several motor swaps and then finally swapping in traction magnets the car came back to life again(did it ever!!!) But, as luck would have it, an errant crash cost the poor Jag half of it's rear wing and even after looking at the end of the event and again this morning I still haven't found it. So, The car was retired for the event.
A huge, sincere thank you to Odette Malhorn(Mika's wife) for handling ALL of the calculating of the lap totals.
A few personal thoughts on the event......What a BLAST!!! The event was so much fun! And seeing some good old friends and actually meeting Steve Pitts for the first time (Stormtrooper on some of the message boards) really was the best part of it all. The downside, if there really was one, was the fact I had to miss the first half of the event and I was SO TIRED after an exhausting day at work.
A huge thankyou to those who participated and made the event a huge success.

Wizzard HO BBS Rules:
Prelude to the Rules:

I guess when you set down a set of rules, you really need to define the reason for thier existence. This BB is more than a mere property to me. It is a place to communicate with friends as well as customers, and teach. For me, its kind of like home. I would then ask you guys to treat it like you would my home, and like you would want me to treat your home. If we have a problem with a guest, I'll deal with it. If I don't want you in my home, rest assured, I don't want you here either. If you wander over to the neighbors and start bad mouthing me, or anything associated with me, don't expect a warm welcome if you come knocking on the door. If you get booted, we will do everything we can to make it so that you can't even view the BB. I'd rather not spend my time and knowledge teaching somebody who does not appreciate it. From what I can gather, there are 9 former or current national champions presently registered to the BB. Given the vastness of knowledge available, this BB is unparalleled anywhere. I do hope you all enjoy and respect this BB.
