Thank you Bruce for posting the results.
2 things: I was given a First place medal in class P for the Enduro, when the winner in class P was Gary Joseph in the Celica. I guess initially he showed as TCRA member and was not included in the AROSC list. I'll be happy to return the medal.
Secondly, the Enduro race occurred on June 15, *not* on June 16, as it shows in the AROSC race results web page.

I have the toughest name in the world to spell. Much harder than Guiral or Mazlumian. It's Gray. If the recently posted results are confusing (Gray, Grag or Grey, I guess I was all three at Buttonwillow), it's still me.

OK, I've corrected all the typos you guys pointed out plus one other (Tony Presto in an "RX&", that's a good one!). If someone finds more, let me know.

Ncrc does NOT have Fire and rescue, that is one of the reason (TCRA) does not have joint event with them anymore.
Is just plain unsafe, IMO

After reading about the lack of Fire Rescue at this NCRC event AND the lack of Fire Rescue at Chuckwalla (I was at Chuckwalla), I'm going to be asking before I register for each event from now on.
No Fire Rescue, I won't sign up.
The point is to minimize the risks at a dangerous event, not to maximize the risks.

I was not at these events so I don't know if F&R was there or not but I did get this from NCRC. They talk safety!:

<<First Real-Life Test of NCRC Convertible Safety Rule

NCRC's rules regarding convertible roll-over protection are some of the strictest, if not the strictest in the industry, and we've taken a fair bit of heat for these rules over the years. We knew when we decided years ago to be at the forefront of convertible safety, that it would cost us money, but the decision was purely made to increase the safety of the drivers at our events. In fact, our ongoing safety reimbursement program (Track and Racing Events - Northern California Racing Club/American Racing Club) has been a huge success in making these drivers safer not only at NCRC events, but at all other club events.


An incident at our event this weekend has shown this to be a wise decision. A convertible in our beginner group with an instructor on-board ended up on its roof. In order to pass the broomstick test to be able to attend our events, this driver was required to modify his car. After the roll-over, the occupants walked away without injury. The result would have been dramatically different without these mandated modifications.>>

I got the same email. Interestingly, AROSC has stricter safety requirements than NCRC and most of the "driving clubs". We require all natural clothing (or Nomex) neck to wrists to ankles, and GLOVES! I cannot tell you how many people I have seen driving without even a $5 pair of Home Depot leather gloves. Sharp metal, broken glass, & fire are things that can be dealt with a little easier wearing gloves!

Question Willow Safety?

What will the standard be for the October Willow Event?

Is this another clubs rules, or AROSC run?

The october event is an AROSC event and all FireSafety will be at the track. We do require that all drivers have long pants/shirts/gloves when on the track. Not saying that a rollover will never happen, in which we hope it never does. It is more often than not that just grabbing that door, steering wheel or another part of the car on a hot day will severly burn your hands. A descent pair of gloves it not that expensive and if you look at it in a relative aspect, how much is a copay at your dr or emergency room for treating burns just from "cheaping out" and not getting a pair of gloves.

My motto is I would rather have it than not need it than need it and not have it!

See you at the track!
