Congratulatons to all the Class Champions ...
The weekend did not start off well. The qualifying session no sooner started and it was discovered the electronic timing system was not functional. Joel Hershoren called an impromptu drivers' meeting and it was decided the starting grid for each race group would be determined by points standing. This saved a lot of time by eliminating the use of stopwatches and the drivers still had an opportunity to run practice laps on the track.
Brenda Butler, a fixture on the starting grid, retired at the end of this season. Here she is sharing some cake with friends. She did a great job of rotating responsibilities among team members. I'm certain she leaves behind a well trained team as her legacy.
Dick Cole also retired. He served in many positions over the years and most recently as Chief Steward for the last several years. I understand this is not the first time he has retired!
Congratulations ot Melissa Fergus on winning the CFC Class Championship!
Brian and Judy Bennett took time during their worker lunch break to enjoy a few parade laps on the track. Nice car!
Although the clouds looked ominous on Sunday morning, the weather cooperated making it a great day for racing. Remember those previous years when it rained on most race weekends? We sure had great weather throughout this season.
A light moment in the stands between races.
