        Guess I have the answer. It was 3 tenths off the pace at home in pre-test. So it is 3 tenths off in this qualifying run.

          Good evening everyone. I am finally able to report to you the results of the four races we held last evening at ANRP. We had a full cast of characters and it really helped to keep us on schedule (yeah right).

          Blue Lane driver: Bob Bianchi from Slot Car Corner (blue shirt)
          Yellow Lane driver: Phil Basaldu (Wingman7738) (shirt says Phillip)
          Red Lane driver: Dennis Dwire (no HRW handle yet) (gray shirt)
          Marshall: Dickie Pearson (dungeonracer) (helmet guy 🤣)

          As you can see above, we had quite the group last night. We had some great fun racing these cars!!


          Here is the format we used for Race #3 on the oval.

          Cars were grouped by qualifying speeds and then run against each other in those groups to make the racing competitive and close. Each car was run 1.5 minutes per lane. We limited the time to get both the oval races and roval races done in one night. It really produced some close racing in both series. At the end of each car's run, we placed the car exactly where it finished inside the oval so that we could break ties at the end. As you will see in the results, it was a great tool in deciding positions.

          Here are the results:

          Winston Cup:

          This turned out to be an exceptionally close race with four cars within one lap of each other after running for 4.5 minutes on a 30ft. oval. Wow!!

          And the winner is......

          This was an extremely good race as all cars were within less than 6 laps of each other after 4.5 minutes of driving and over 79 laps each. There were two ties for total laps. As you can see in the finishing position picture above, the #43 finished just in front of the #42 for third place and the #22 finished ahead of the #3. On the oval, it's easy to use finishing position because we are not using the inside of the track. There were no mechanical issues for any of the cars. Congrats to all the builders on that.

          COT:

          As I stated during qualifying, these cars a a bit of a handful on the oval. We ran at 10 volts and that was certainly enough power to produce some level of wheel spin for all the cars. This put huge smiles on the faces of the drivers though and produced some really close competition in all three lanes. Of course, the sun does shine on a dog's butt once in a while and I guess it did on mine this time around as the car set up on this oval was the victor....

ID:	168590Second place was REL13 in the #13 car with 84.75 laps. His fast lap was 3.084 in yellow. Third place was the #12 Dodge of arroldn with 84.25 laps and a series best 2.997 fast lap in yellow. *This followed up his sub 3 second qualifying lap as well. The only car in either oval race to break that barrier. It didn't quite get you the win, but man was that car a rocket ship. We actually had all three lanes represented in the fastest lap category for COT. It shows that these cars were also extremely close.

          Here is the finishing position photo. There was only one tie on laps in this race between the #43 and #88 with the former winning out.

ID:	168591Pay no attention to the huge horse on the track. It did not interfere with the cars during their race The bumble in the corner is either smiling because of the action or drooling and thinking about eating the horse.

          Again, great job to everyone. I am extremely excited to even be in the same zip code as many of you great car builders, let alone win a race. Wow. Congrats to the podium finishers in both races and the pole winners from the other day. I am really looking forward to seeing this series progress. I will be posting some other pictures of the cars in a separate thread soon.

          The Roval race results will also be updated tonight on that thread. Stay tuned....
