Reedy Truck Race Qualifying Report

Reedy Truck Race Qualifying Report
Today kicked off the 2012 Reedy Truck Race at Hot Rod Hobbies in Saugus, CA.  This event focuses on all the truck classes, Stadium truck and both 2wd and 4wd short course trucks (all the fun stuff).  I was a bit surprised with the turnout this year, only a little over 140 entries.  The truck classes have really been the popular classes at the local race tracks so I would have expected a bigger turnout.  Anyway, the race has really been a lot of fun as Jimmy's races always are.  I think the track this year has a lot to do with the fun, with no one have anything bad to say about it.  The grip in the track is much better this year over last year, it has more of a Shootout kind of traction, meaning very great traction.  Let's not forget about the weather, man did we get lucky with the weather, could not be any nicer.  

The team has been running very consistent and fast.  Just need a bit of luck to go our way tomorrow in the mains and we will be coming home with some hardware.  Billy Fischer was getting IT done in the Pro 4 class all day just missing TQ in the first round and the overall TQ, when it came down to the final round today with Billy taking the fight to the last lap.  A small mistake would give him two second in round one and round 3, giving him the 3rd spot on the grid for tomorrow.  We have a good number of fast TLR driver's in all the A-mains, so we have a solid chance of bringing home so titles.
