Bremerton Raceway Sunday May 10th

So Sunday Tena, her mom and I went to Bremerton race way and enjoyed a long Day of racing. I Raced the 09 Focus, Tena Raced the 97 caravan and Her mom raced an 09 versa. We got to the track at 6:45 and there was already a long line. When we got in finally we discovered that there was hardly any decent pit stalls left so we had to park way out in the boonies. Half the time we couldn’t even hear them announce our classed running. However everyone had a lot of fun. I won two rounds before losing and Tena won one round I have times and pics and a video as well. I would have a video of the focus but it was taken with the Non digital camcorder.

BTW where were all the other Foci ?? Mine got lonely.

So here are the times

1st run (time trial)
R/T-.251
60’-2.427
330’-6.981
1/8- 10.735
1/8 MPH-65.66
1000’-13.943
¼- 16.623
¼ MPH-85.10

2nd Run (time trial)
R/T-.221
60’-2.425
330’-6.973
1/8-10.729
1/8 MPH-65.60
1000’-13.941
¼- 16.621
¼ MPH-85.05

3rd Run (1st round of eliminations)
Dial in set at 16.59

R/T- .241
60’-2.475
330’-7.060
1/8-10.823
1/8 MPH-65.43
1000’-14.042
¼-16.733 (not sure what happened here)
¼ MPH-84.00

I won this race because my opponet red lit(she would have broke out as well)

4th run (second round of eliminations)
Changed my dial in to 16.60

R/T-.004 (my best light ever)
60’-2.426
330’-6.984
1/8-10.726
1/8 MPH-65.85
1000’-13.92
¼-16.585 (quickest run of the day)
¼ MPH-84.82

This was a very good race. If you’ll notice I broke out, but so did my opponnet. Margin of victory? How about .016.

5th and final run of the day
Changed my dial in to 16.50 (wish I would have gone with 16.55)

R/T-.070
60’-2.419
330’-6.962
1/8-10.705
1/8 MPH-65.82
1000’-13.904
¼-16.597
¼ MPH-82.43

This was shaping up to be a very quick run (compare the last two) However my opponet had caught me so I got out of the gas hoping he would do the same and lose. But it back fired on me. Any one guess where I let off?? Oh well you Live and you learn.

Ok here are some pictures










Ok this video is great, it is a video of my wife and her mom doing a little grudge match. Warning!! You might get bored wacthing it after the first half. Haha just kidding. It was awsome that my wife actually raced with me.

Oh I forgot to mention It was a mothers day racing bracket that she entered the van in, so it only seemed fitting that she drive the van right?
