2013 Runoffs

Postby Bill Wessel » Mon Jul 29, 2013 4:27 am

I am sorry to say that in the 2013 50th anniversary Runoffs my roadster will not be on the grid. I have failed to qualify with only 3 finishes for 7 starts on the season. I've lost two engines in two successive events from broken cams. I had only broken one other cam in all the years before this and now two in a row! Unbelievable, but that's the way this season has gone. So for the first time since 2001 when I started racing Col. Joe Hauser's car seriously in SCCA nationals, I have not made the grid requirements for Runoffs.

Sucks....oh well

You may have heard that this is the last runoffs at Road America. For the next 3 years the event will travel around the country, Laguna Seca, then Daytona, then Mid Ohio.

For me, I think it's time to take the old girl vintage racing. Maybe "out to pasture", so to speak.

See you at the track!

Sorry to hear that, Bill. I was wondering about your making the trip to Laguna Seca next year. That's a long haul. Keep your chin up. Things will improve.
