The Pros From Dover
Whew, I'm glad that one is behind us. The Doernbecher Dash was a real zoo this last weekend. Between the impossible schedule on Saturday and the cars crashing and burning on Sunday, it was a real workout for everyone in every specialty. Some incredible racing skills were on display. Happily everyone went home under their own power. No emergency room visits that I'm aware of. The two formula cars that tangled and then tried to BBQ their cars with a grass fire with the drivers still inside probably still smell of smoke, but they should be repairable. The 57 orange RX-7 that hit the tire wall between turn 12 and the Bridge ripped a corner off his car and seriously re-arranged the tires out onto the racing line. Having to re-grid that 40+ car field on the front straight took lots of time. Between all the incidents, we ended up a full 30 minutes late at the end of Sunday. It made for a late tow home for everyone. Finally there is a short break in my personal racing calendar after doing 7 weekends in a row. Time to recharge for the last few races and get ready for the Cascade Enduro.
