Well,

After fighting mother Nature all day, we finally got the mains going around 7pm. First off I need to thank everyone that came out, to the first round of the Carolina Touring Car Series. I know the rain played on everyone's patience but the crew at the Grove made sure we got the program in. The wait proved to be worth it as Myke D. laid out an awesome track.

We started the program at 12:00 as weather in the are delayed some arrivals. Both classes had some great action all day, Blake Ryan battled Micheal Bright all day for and took the TQ in the 17.5 stock class by less than 6 seconds, he finished second in the A-main. Micheal Bright took the class win, with Robert Warr taking third. Young Andrew Tag qualified a solid 6th going into the main, but the tight track at the Grove ended his day early. Timothy Kafitz and Micheal Kuntz made the bumps from the B-main to round out the A-main field.

The 13.5 Super Stock class was as exciting as the 17.5 class. John Tag walked away with the TQ, his 27/5:06 was more than a lap on Jimmy Mac. The A-main were a different story, the Grove proved to some to be a very tight and congested track. At times it was more who could hit there marks and survive the carnage than who was the fastest. Blake Ryan had control of most of the race he was not the fastest but was able to avoid the contact others could not.

The race ended with Blake Ryan 1st, Jimmy Mac 2nd and John Tag 3rd, but due to being underwieght Blake Ryan was dq'd and was scored last. This moved everyone up a spot and moved Joey McMakin into 3rd. Regardless of the results this will be one of the toughest classes all year, and Blake will be a contender every race.

One thing the will be tech'd much stricter at the next race is spoiler height, lastnight there were several "borderline" calls on the spoiler hieght.The scales and level are open to everyone, to use at anytime, for here on out there will be no excuses, a no go, is a no go. Cars will also be teched after your qualifying runs, because of there importance and the value of the season end prizes up for grabs for the TQ's of the year.

At lastnight's race the prizes for the top finishers in the series were announced. The winner in each of the Electric classes, Mod., 13.5 and 17.5 will each recieve a Novak GTB system. The second place finishers will recieve Novak motors. The winner of the Nitro touring class will recieve a Picco Red Dot motor. The top 5 in each class will receive Up Grade Rc pitmats, with sponsor logos, their name and finishing spot in the series. Several other prizes will be up for grabs from Maxamps, Novak, Proline, Losi Parts House, Integy, RCClothing.com, and HPI.

Needless to say the day was good and the action was hot, with the first round in the books, every thing is looking good for the CTCS and its supporters. Without you racers, your support and your suggestions, none of this would be possible, my thanks to you for everything.

Thank You

Tim Habiuk
