Hello All,

I just have to say, what a fantastic day of racing! You would think that as the day progressed, and the temperatures started to rise that the Cadillac's would get slower, well think again-every single team progressively got quicker as the day progressed!

Thanks to everyone that made it out to support the race teams, thanks to the race teams for bring your A-Game, and big thanks to all of our sponsors: Toyo Tires, The D3 Group, Br4ss Underwear, Monster Energy, CadillacOwneRace Ramps, Forgeline, Odyssey Batteries, Evans Cooling, & Adams Polishes. Without their support this event wouldn't be possible!

Ill say it again, what a fantastic day of racing! We hope to see everyone out again for our final 2 rounds in Sept and Dec!

Another awesome event! Thanks to all that made this event possible and all the friends and families that endured the heat throughout the day. Special thanks to Craig for making the trip, I know your schedule was busy with the POC event earlier in the morning.

Matty, it was awesome seeing you and Stacy tracking the red V! This track never disappoints.

Let's get some pics posted!!!!

Pics??? Hummm......I took no pics!:hide:. I was just having to much fun :bouncy:. {addition to equipment CK list for next race} Camera. Hey Dr. D we need to give a big shout out to Mr F-22 SteveC for laying down a (possible)?? track record for C1 class cars. Either way Mr F-22 posted an amazing time for our cars and provided a benchmark for the rest of us C1 class drivers to chase down. I think he will have his hands full with Hector and I next season.....:devil:. If not H and I can always pull his valve stems right before his session...no cause he would still pull a sub 2 min time.:histeric:

You're right! Huge congrats for Steve and his Coupe. He did an amazing job on a very hot track. I was reading the recap and did not realize he posted a new c1 record for Fontana. That was crazy!!! I don't think there is any slowing Steve down.... =) You and Hector are finding your groves and are getting quicker. So it should be interesting.

Thanks,

Steve's just a cool cat...and a heck of a driver! Hopefully with more seat time and experience..I (or we) can come to a close 2nd. Either way, it'll be fun trying to improve..

Rule12b..I'm rooting for you bud!

Hey hlatin if ya want a good laugh look at our times. Talk about close.....plus we were virgins to the track stuff. Good luck rule 12b im pulling for ya also amigo. I just realized H we can use the excuse "got beat by the track record holder". That way the beating Stevie put down on us seems a bit less harsh........ok ok....just a little:thepan:. Not only now do I have all this new stuff to process but ive been told by the Boss {The Wifey} to plan on finding a car to run next season cause she's not going to sit and watch me have all the fun.....and sadly im worried that she might just have what it takes to give me fits out there; she is fast...... really fast.:hmm:
