Announcement: August 4th Stock Car/HulaCross Race Added

ATTENTION RACERS:

Although we mentioned at the driver meeting that we would not have the August 4th race, we have decided to add in Sunday, August 4th, as a Stock Car race day.  This will allow those racers that have not yet qualified, a last chance opportunity to qualify for the August 31st race without a "buy-in".  

We will also have the Trophy Dash Race on this day.  Based on the registered driver turn-out for this day, the racers with higher points standings will qualify for the Trophy Dash.  

We will have the trophy presentation of the winners on the night of August 31st.  

We apologize for the confusion and hope to see you all out on Sunday.

 

Stock Car Race & Results - Jul 14, 2013

Today's event finds us with bright blue skies and fluffy white clouds. It's a warm day, although cooler than it's been for the last week,and this really places a high demand on the drivers who need constant hydration and a little time in the shade in order to keep their cool.

Practice and hot laps complete, the first group of cars up for the beginning of the heat races will be the Modified class. On the pole is the 85 and next to him the 27. On the 2nd row we have the 18 next to the 25 and on the final row are the 50 and a new driver Jeremy (Boy) Moniz in the white 07. At the start of the race Tabangcura gets a good start and has the 85 in front while Peterson tucks the 27 in closely behind then it's one car back to the black #18 of Moniz and dropping back three of four more car lengths over the next lap. It's been mostly single file and by lap five Tabangcura has a five car length lead over second place and the gap is growing. It's a little bit dusty, but bearable so, with a little maintenance the track will hopefully hold up throughout the day. The 07 of Boy Moniz has been running carefully at the back of the pack and is getting lapped by the leader so he stays high to let the faster cars through. Peterson had been able to close the gap as they negotiated past the 07 and gets up towards Tabangcura's bumper at the finish, but the white flag flies and there's no opportunity fo him before the checkers fly. At the finish Tabangcura in front followed by Peterson, Chad Moniz in the 18, Muraoka driving the 25, Kovaloff in the 50 and rounding out the field; Boy Moniz in the 07.

Sand Drags Race & Results - July 6th, 2013

I finally arrive at the track after an unusually slow drive in from the East side of the island. The traffic had been backed up for miles right around the stadium area and suddenly the traffic had sped up and the road cleared while I had been expecting to come upon an accident. Somewhat typical for Hawaii; it was a slowdown on the freeway with no apparent cause.

I pause for a moment to let the Tonka Toy truck of Manuel Moisa pass (so I can see the new headers he installed) and cover my ears pretending the exhaust note is too much to bear as he grins while driving by. I'm pleasantly surprised to see Junior Alimoot in the pits as I make my way to the tower. He hadn't been sure he'd be able to get "Wicked" repaired in time for the event and, although he and his crew are busy working on the car, he thought he'd be ready for time trials which were about to start. And Bobby Perkins appears to have made the transmission repairs that he'd suffered at the last event as I can see the back of the white Toyota truck behind the second bunker. "There's a new roadster " Gerald Ing points out to me as I greet him and his son (who have already unloaded). Gerald and Tim must have been just far enough ahead of whatever incident had slowed me down as they were unaware of the slow traffic I had encountered.

There are a few late registrations at the tower, but in general everyone appears ready to roll as the announcer calls for drivers to come to the staging area so they can get started and I can see the beginnings of another gorgeous sunset (which Hawaii is so, so famous for).

They run time trials and I see a new stretched, black quad as well as all of the regulars. They grade the track quickly and run one of the Jr. dragsters as well as the kids on bikes and quads. Mike Kitchens reminds everyone on the PA that, as always, the kids run for free so everyone shoul be sure to take advantage of the opportunity. Granny Grace provides a prayer, in Hawaiian first followed by a version in English and we all face the flag quietly in attention as the National Anthem is played prior to getting started.
