The Super Tires 100 at Goodspeed Raceway














28 November 2015

Goodspeed and the West Michigan Scale Slot Car Racing Group hosted a pair of hard hitting, two fisted competitive show downs Saturday; the Super Tires 100 for Grand National Monogram cars sponsored by Super Tires and a Brights in the Night LMP1 race under the lights.  

The races attracted four racers from Chicago as well as a strong contingent of the regulars.  Racers competing included; M. G. Brown, Jack Dastoli, John Hansen, Harlan Jones, John Lacko, Denny Moscatelli, Kurt Nank, Tom Ryfiak, Craig Salisbury, Ken Swanson, Mark Welch and Kevin Yonkers.

The Super Tires 100 consisted of 5 minute heats to insure the top cars completed 100 laps.  The race was limited to only the Monogram NASCARS in the class.  Nick of Super Tires provided their 1700 tires for every entrant and the podium finishers won their choice of six pair of Super Tires.

The LMP1 race was an enduro with 12 minute heats that tested both man and machine.  The only eligible cars were Scalextric LMP1 cars with both head and tail lights.  Back up cars were pressed into action by John L. and Ken due to mechanical issues during the extended LMP1 race.

Due to a cold track, no new track records were set.
