MARRS #6 at Summit Point, WV

Recommended Posts

We have a nice group of 7 Z cars racing this weekend at Summit Point. I re-rebuilt (yes, twice now) my race engine and it seems really strong this time. Jeff Lucas has won every race at Summit Point since at least the beginning of last season. Mark Gibson took care of a cracked head and should be contending for the win along Jim Cummings. Jim Slechta in the 300ZX is also very strong. John Legg has a strong engine in his 240Z and still sorting out the car since getting it back on track. If I can't battle Jeff for the win I hope I'm fighting for second place. If anyone wants to stop by John, Jeff and I are in the paddock area inside of turn 10.

Jim Slechta in the 300ZX was fast as usual. He was 4th. The results were: 280Z, 240SX, 240Z (started 19th overall), 300zx, RX-7, 325iS, 240Z, 240Z. Jeff Lucas in a 73 240Z probably would have won again if the stub axle hadn't failed. We're all friends and everyone knows who the big dogs are. The Labor Day Double Points race brings out more cars and a couple more very fast cars to battle including another RX-7 and an Integra. We race again on July 29-30.

I was going to ask for a lap time sheet but you likely were reading my mind.

Did the Jefferson 500 with VRG back in May and had a ball.

First time there and started out doing 1:32s and got it down to a 1:30.0 by Sunday on tires that should have been retired in April.

A 1:28 should be in my reach with better tires and after that it's more track time.

What classification are the Zs running (ITS, EP)?

Thanks for sharing the pics and info. Enjoy yourself.

I'm off to do the Schenley Park vintage event this coming weekend.
