Mooresville 1997

Racing Results from the April 26th and 27th 1997 Racing weekend in Indiana:
Saturday we raced at a freshly re-paved go cart track in Whiteland Indiana. It was a good track for the stock class racers, as the course had a lot of slightly banked twists and turns, and one hairpin. Not so good for the streamliners as they were not able to put their aerodynamics to good use on the short track. It was my first time racing the WISIL Missile, and I crashed on that hairpin, but no damage was done and I (after a few false starts) got back into the race. Sean Costin, who had earned the number "1" for winning the most points during last years season in the Super-Modified class raced his wife's unfaired bike in the same heat as the streamliners and still managed to capture 3rd place. Sean hopes to have his new streamliner ready for the next race. Here are the results:

Sunday we raced on a 1 mile asphalt road that wound through a park in Mooresville, Indiana. The course goes down one side of a hill and up the other, and has some fun curves. The rain managed to hold off long enough for the track to dry out in time for racing. Two races were held, the first was a "Dash for the Cash" one lap race and the second was a 10 lap for all vehicles except the supermodified HPVs, which raced 20 laps. I think that the table below represents the results, I'll check with Len to be sure...
