    Woo-hoo!

    If you checked the Racing Studebakers topic earlier, look again. I found five nice photos of the Studes on the Buick V8 Board and patched them over to the Studebaker Racing Forum report. BP

    I'll try to post some pics, too, Bob. It was great to be there, again, and see you and all the Stude crew. Left after the last round of shoot outs, about 4:30. Drove straight to Barrie and was home by 11:30 pm. The more I drive the little hardtop, the better it runs. I filled up in Port Huron (USA) and still had half a tank of gas when I got home, and that was about three hundred more miles! Should have been in a Mobilegas economy run

        Thanks for posting the PSMCDR report Bob...WOW on Steve's impressive win against the Monte Carlo SS454! I can just picture George running around looking for those S/C belts, grabbing a couple from his stash, looking at them, not really knowing which ones to use and going for it!. Congratulations to all the racers, Ted Harbit, Chuck Kern, and to Peter Sant for breaking into the 13's, WOW that is impressive! His R2 Avanti, with air conditioning weighs approximately the same as my Hawk, and getting into the 13's is a big accomplishment. I sure wish I could have been there, sunny with blue skies and cool temperature would have made a perfect racing weekend,...maybe next year.

          'Sorry you couldn't attend, Allen; you were missed! Plenty of room in the pits, for sure.

          BTW, Steve's R3 Challenger beat a GTO, not a Monte Carlo. Two of the Studes (Steve's R1 Commander and Ted's Stude Tomato) ran against Malibu SS cars: The R1 ran against a 1970 SS396, whereas Ted ran against a 1972 SS454.

          'Hope to see you next year. BP

              Okey dokey. My pics are from Friday, before the shootouts, when they determine who will pair up. For the Stude folks, the pit area is the happenin place to be (Also Frank with the blue Dodge Dart screamer made his pit the place to be on Saturday when he graciously fed all of us with cheese steak sandwiches).

                Check out Peter’s times, I see his times were 14.013, 13.999, and 13.992 just a little better each round. That's consistency! That's makes him a winner.
                Congratulations to all.

                    Again the drags are a event that brings back a lot of fond memories.

                    But either my hearing is going to cr@p or they are requiring much more restrictive mufflers as there is a visceral element missing.

                    Almost like watching it on TV.

                    On the positive side, my brother, myself and his friend had a good time taking in the rest of the atmosphere.

                      I was just wondering what happen to you, Richard? Was your Lark broken down? Or did you simply have other commitments that got in the way this year, which happen to me. You and your Lark have been a mainstay of the Pure Stocks for years and were obviously missed.

                        Allen,
                        I decided to retire the R1 after last year. My R1 has done all I ask it to do and so we let it rest. I have been trying to get my Challenger done and on the track. It’s not a Pure Stock car and I have raced it but it needs a lot of tuning.
                        Thanks for asking,
                        Richard
