This season was a struggle with two cars not prepared for racing.The Camaro engine was installed in the monza testing converter and transmissions.Some struggles between the converter and glide. We sorted out the issue,began assembly 388 ci with some struggles.Re-checked the piston/bores were not correct, we hand honed to .05 allowing the right piston,correct hand set up quickly reassembled  and installed it by saturday.a change converter. The engine was the trick, with little time tuning, the monza was back in the groove.6.40's -6.30's.

My camaro reassembed,at usual set up did well at first races, but the glide broke the pump stator. Reassembled with fresh ol transmission, ran back 6.80's early season, traction had some struggles with used tires.The rain and humids gave rough dial consistencies,making us all tough competition.

The Pro season was tough with few dominating each week,Gary Clark and I back and forth all year= 2 wins each until he became deadly winning.Points finally Gary pulls ahead without only Josh getting close.Eddie R,Damon H, Jody W, and Charlie H.Ben Burk all made tight points race. My attempt to slow down Gary, Eddie and others shut me down to end up 7th points. All in good competition between friends and co racers.

 Mandy started trophy class with the malibu tuned down early until she was better at the tree and finishing. I concentration on keeping her concentration and remaining calm.LOL now that was a chore.As nerves smoothed out she became winning races becoming competitive.Mandy big dog # 1 Trophy win class.

Sportsman tough and competitive. Bill King, Stan Holder and Zach Benitiz fought a close class.Bill finally winning out.

Super pro competitors were tight class also, Steve Beasley win at last.Eric Mann and Ed Culberston within few points.  CONGRATS ALL !!
