WHO Nascar -
Although every WHO race night is a little bit special, this one was extra-
The race was also a fund-
All the Mega-
Not to be completely overshadowed by all the Hot Pink stuff, we also helped Stephen
celebrate his up-
So, all in all, a good night... And we did squeeze in some racing too.
There were seventeen of us on the grid for the second Nascar race of the year. After
the short track oval in February, we stretched out to a 52 foot 'intermediate' tri-
Back to the racing and it wasn't just the Mega-
The qualifying heats were pretty quick and there was some great, very close racing.
There was also the occasional 'big one' which caught up two, three or all four of
the cars -
At the front, our hot dogs at half way were Mike D, John, Andy, Ned and Mike McCann
Hayley and Alex made up the F final shoot-
Alex stayed in blue lane for the E final and he certainly made the most of that advantage.
Up against three Mega-
However, as much as Terry could keep pace with Alex, he couldn't pass him. He'd need
a big mistake from the youngster and that didn't happen. Indeed it was Terry who
lost ground with a couple of offs near the end. Alex took his second successive final
win, a lap and a half ahead of Terry, who'd easily set his best score of the night.
Behind them, Aiden recovered very well and almost pipped Ash for third -
In the D final, Alex faced a tough challenge -
The early focus on pink tyres, cake and charity donations had completely shifted towards the impressive performance of Alex Ferrigno. He was now in the C final, staying in yellow lane, up against three very quick racers. It was his turn to pursue, as Mike McCann took the early lead, with Deborah and Keith a few seconds back in third and fourth. Keith had a poor start with an early off, but he would surely come back strong in the favoured red lane.
Alex moved into the lead just past the thirty second mark, but Mike wasn't going
to give up. It remained a very tight and clean race. Deborah was doing a superb job
holding off Keith and wasn't giving up too much ground to the leaders either. With
such small gaps, anything could happen -
We'd have happily given Ned the junior medal after the heats, but now -
And it was very good -
Stephen was the top qualifier of the quartet and he'd picked blue lane for a reason
With the clock ticking down, the pressure was mounting and Alex binned it in turn
two and Ned slipped past. There were fifteen seconds to go -
The A final line-
Huge congratulations to Mike on his race win, Ned for an incredibly close-
A big thanks to Stephen for running race control (and for the cake) and to everyone
who came along and made it such an excellent evening at the Barn -
I'll leave the final thoughts to others.
First from John: "On behalf of Rainbow Chest, I would like to thank everyone at WHO Racing for their kind donations and for entering in to the spirit of the evening by using the 'Hot Pink' tyres."
And from Nick and Sandy at Super Tires: "To all of the racers who raced in the Super
Tires Hot Pink 200 -
