AI/X and CMC cars from Texas, Oklahoma and Omaha Nebraska traveled to the historic 1.8 mile track known as Hallett Motor Racing Circuit ( http://www.hallettracing.com ). Located just west of Tulsa Oklahoma, this was the series first venture north of the Red River in the 2004 racing season. This track is challenging, and many have never raced on its surface before - making the 14-15 August weekend the one to watch!
HALLETT WEEKEND RACE SUMMARY:
+ 4 AI/CMC sprint races toward championship points (20 minutes each)
+ 1 practice session and 2 qualifying sessions (15-20 minutes each)
+ 7 total race group sessions and well over 2 hours of track time!
+ Standing Starts!
+ 7 American Iron cars.
+ 1 AI/X car ( all the way from Omaha NE! )
+ 1 CMC car
+ 2 Competition Licensing students working towards AI competition.
+ 9 Mustangs ( hey, where did the all F-bodys go? )
+ 2 Pole Position qualifiers - John George (AI) Sat Race #1...Wayne Manor (AI) Sun Race #1
+ 2 winners for the weekend - John George 2X (AI)...Wayne Manor 2X (AI)
+ 3 new track records set! AIX ( Buddy Cisar - 1.26.478 ), AI ( John George - 1:26.548 ), and CMC ( Adam Ginsberg - 1:31.266 )
+ Brakes were the hot commodity this weekend! Other casualties included 1 power steering pump, 2 clutch cables, 1 clutch, 1 transmission, 1 AMB transponder, 1 electric radiator fan, 1 torque arm, 1 drive shaft and many sets of well used brake pads.
