Division 6 Race at Pacific Raceways – August 2017

Chris had his ’71 Chevelle out for this weekend in Pro Bracket and Paul was giving him a hand. Plus they were helping with Joe Loch’s Top Sportsman Camaro.

Sunday morning Pro Bracket was first out and the air was excellent. Chris ran a solid 10.507 @ 125.83 MPH on a 10.49 dial. Unfortunately, Chris went red by .004-seconds.

There is a curious observation from this weekend, in the left lane Chris had reaction times of .047 & .034.  In the right lane he recorded reaction times of .004, .003 and the -.004 in the first round. Question, is the roll-out equal in both lanes?

Joe Loch qualified #1 in Top Sportsman again negotiating a tricky track on the top end. In the first round he recorded a personal best MPH running a 6.573 @ 211.73 MPH on his first round bye run! Joe was eliminated in the 2nd round when he was tardy on the tree.

Next out is our ’57 for clutch testing on August 26th. – Roger
