The next race will be at Driven raceway in Rohnert Park this Sunday. That's right the club has changed the race date to August 27th instead of the first Sunday in September which is Labor day. The points race is close in five classes, so if you are in the points, show up. I will be running 55 Bomber, Mini, and Euro Truck. Hope to see you on Sunday.

THANKS FOR THE THOUGHTS ON THE TRACTION. YES MAYBE LESS IS BETTER, A MIST BETWEEN HEATS AND MAINS WILL DO IT.

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls the ground pounders points race is posted at Jake's hobby shop. Some close points spread in a lot of the classes. In 17.5 winged sprints there is only two results and in Spec rally has one results. If you have any questions or disputes on the points total let me know. There are three races let and with two throw outs the results could be shaken up. I will send a copy to Amy so it can be posted on the clubs Web site.

Sherm
 Dave and i were talking and few others,trying to figure out why the grip level got worse and worse,one thing i do know is these crc tires seem to hold dirt alot more than say sedan type rubber,our thoughts were thinking that the misting between rounds maybe have been a factor with the oval grip going from a 4-5 to a 1-2 by main. My stuff was killer both rounds them main came and i never could get to even 3/4 throttle in the straights and waiting a long time to even get to that point and still getting excessive wheel speed.
  The wind picking up blowing the direction is does off the mountains prolly was dusting the track more and the extra secret sauce actually attracted the dirt more.
 It is the same for everyone and the racers we are just deal,but it does make for lousy racing overall for everyone.
  In the past when we all ran foam,it would help the grip and extra spray in the am during drivers meeting,but now that 2 or the 3 premier oval classes are rubber,maybe next time just normal spray in the am with maybe light dust if sun is out after last practice?
 The month prior at windsor was actually quite good all day,so not totally sure why this time was different,we all know what the issue was the very first race there.
 Hopefully when we go back in Oct. we can lock down the grip consistency or at least figue out the why? Thanks Sherman you do a fantastic job helping the club,the post was not a blame just thinking what we may have thought contributed to the lousy oval grip?

This Sunday is the next race in the Ground Pounders points race. The featured class is USGT, and will be at Les Schwab tire store in Windsor. The weather is looking good, not to hot so remember to bring shade, sun screen, and dress accordingly.

After this race I will work on finishing the points race printout and post the results at Jake's hobby shop and on the club's Web site. I'm up for some Mini, and 55 Bomber. Hope to see you this Sunday.

Gordon.

Tonight at the meeting the club members revisited the new oval body, LTC Potoform body. The vote was four in favor and zero no's, and so the new body is approved for the 13.5 classes. Also, this upcoming month, August will have two events due to Labor day falling on the first weekend in September, so the September's race will be held on August the 27th. Their was a question about points race , and I will try to print out  a tally as of the last race as soon as possible.

So, keep an eye on the ground pounders Web sight and I will print a copy and leave it on the bulletin board at Jake's hobby shop. This next race will be at Les Shuab in Windsor on the 6th  of August.
