I hope some one will be able to take some great photos for the gallery. Perhaps some day we'll be able to set up live web broadcasts.

Have a great time guys!

The times for positions 4 -> 7 seem out of order. Am I missing something?

its like that because those two drivers...mickey cohen and richard beard were stuck behind the other two cars. mickey cohen was turning 1:29's all weekend until the race. richard beard probably turned that lap time on one of the laps when he was making up time after an early race spin. problem with portland is that it's a tight track...most of the passing is done at the end of the front and back straights. two of the best battles of the racer were between steve link, mickey cohen, jon norman, and richard beard (they were all less than a second apart from each other the whole race, their battle defines the meaning of a "train race") the other great battle was between ted kattchee and myself. it took me a few laps to catch him and for about 16 laps, nobody knew who was gonna be infront of who when we came by the start finish line. this was by far not my best performance but one of my best races so far because there was someone else the same speed as me. we are all really looking forward tobuttonwillow in september.
