Seventeen slot car racers (members and non-members) descended on BUZZ-A-RAMA RACEWAY to compete in a Sprint Car race that was held on Thursday, November 4, 2010 on the American Raceways  “YELLOW MONARCH” track.

Qualifications began promptly at 7:00 PM and consisted of racing your car on the Black lane (one of eight lanes on the track) for a total of laps and sections in two electronically timed minutes which is computed with the reliable  AUTOMATIC AMERICAN RACE DIRECTOR  lap counter. 

Fastest qualifiers for this event were:  1st-  Chris Devita  23 laps-9 sections,  2nd- Roger Browne 22-19, 3rd- Kris Campana 22-10, 4th- Nick Traina 21-14, 5th- Ed Poccia Sr. 21-4, 6th- Kevin Link 20-30, 7th- Nick Perri 19-32, 8th- Tom Foster 19-30. 9th through 17th were– Arianna Perri, Andrew Poccia, Samantha Perri, Dovid Stern, Steven Perri, Rob Penn, Betty Devita, Joseph Vasta and Nicky Racos who did not qualify.

It was decided that because we ended up with 16 drivers, we would run 2- semi finals of 8 drivers each. Four top drivers from each semi would move up to the “MAIN EVENT”

After running both semi finals, we assigned lanes to the top 8 drivers.

These are the results of the MAIN EVENT:   Kevin Link was top driver with 212 laps followed by Roger Browne in 2nd with 211-15, 3rd place went to Chris Devita who was also in the same lap as Roger with 211-4 and 4th place was Nick Traina with 210 laps. 5th place was Ed Poccia Sr. 205, 6th was Kris Campana 199-36, 7th Nick Perri 199-32 approximately 10 feet behind Kris and Tom Foster was 8th  with 175 laps with mechanical trouble. This race was very exciting to the racers as well as the spectators.

 Next race will be for Flexi Nascars on the Orange track on December 9, 2110 at 7:00 PM sharp.
