Yup, last Friday the WWRA invited the mini stocks to come on out to the track and have an "open comp" race. All night, people were swapping cars and having one hell of a good time. The set up was this...
Heat race - on the 1/5th mile track... Kris won and Scott, on his first ever race on it, was 2nd in Tonya.
Main #1 - 40 laps on the 3/8ths... What an absolute barn burner this race was! There were over 15 cars that started the main and by lap 15 or so, the top 3 were Steve Green(former champion) in the 2 car, Scott(3 time champion) in the 99 and Kris(Current champion) in the 12. For the remainder of the race, those 3 ran nose to tail, lots of hard, clean racing that you would expect from that caliber of racers and thats how they finished. You could have tossed the proverbial blanket over the three of them, some of the funnest, most exciting racing of the year!
Main #2 saw the rematch between Scott and Steve. Kris asked Scott to drive the 12 car and Nat (another former champion) jumped into the 99 for this race. This time, it was Scott who was able to take the lead with Nat breathing down his neck for most of the race, with Steve fighting to stay within site of the leaders. With 3 laps to go, there was a caution which set the stage for a shoot-out. on the restart, Scott was the pole, with Nat on the outside and Steve inside row 2. Scott was able to get a little separation through 1 and 2 and left Nat and Steve to battle for 2nd, which was a very spirited battle indeed. In the end, Scott won, Nat was 2nd and Steve 3rd. Another cool trophy was awarded and is now residing on the surprise trophy shelf for 2009.
One more thing, as if It needed to be confirmed... Kris Harriss builds one HELL of a race car folks... If you are in the market for a Honda, our car is indeed still for sale, so don't delay!
