Announcement: August 4th Stock Car/HulaCross Race Added
Written by Administrator Tuesday, 16 July 2013 20:29
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.

Race number 4 for the 2013 season finds us at a hot and sunny day race, but the weather is looming over the Ko’olau mountain range somewhat and rain is a possibility later in the day. There aren’t as many cars here as last month’s night race, but this is, by far, the best showing of racers at a day event to date. Once “pack track” and practice were finished the track was looking in great shape, but the windy, sunny conditions would inevitably dry it out fairly quickly.
The heat races were announced and once the cars were lined up at the track entrance (the “chute”) we paused for the National Anthem and prayer prior to racing.
There are a total of eight groups of varying cars arranged into their respective classes and the order in which they run is intended to get the cars with the widest tires out first, I think in part to help the track avoid rutting from the narrower tires when the track is still moist.
