Ralph Provitz fastest man ever at WHRRI

New track record for his car class and a fastest time anyone has gone around the track!!!

Call him and he will make your car faster

Specking for the mere humans, we can’t imagine doing a lap around Waterford Hills 20 seconds faster.

He now wants to be called “Sir Ralphie”

The last time I heard the term "Ralphie" it was in a not so pleasant context. :P

Ralph my man, you rock!

First Andrew with a PM and now you publicly. Trying to put the pressure on, eh?
Boy I'd like to but my daughter has a hockey game Saturday and Sunday. Saturday's is in Birmingham and at 10:30 in the AM so I could probably get over there after, Sunday's is in Brighton in the middle of the day. Problem is I'm one of the coaches. Maybe I can take that weekend off from hockey and hang out with you guys and run my mouth, like old times. Boy, I miss that place.................let me think about it. Last weekends are usually very exciting! Sounds like the club has had some great racing!!

Greg, It would be great to have you, but we understand if you cannot. You have a full table for a fall weekend. If you can swing it, it would be great to have you behind the microphone.
( and would save folks from having to listen to me ) .

Think of it as public service ( ha-ha-ha )

Cheers, Joel

Gee whiz Ralph, if you could get that thing to accelerate down the back straight just how much faster would you be? :lol:

Fantastic job. I remember when Jon first went under 1:00 and people said that would stand for a while and be hard to break.

Right on both counts. Kudos young man.
