MASCAR 2: a photo report by Tom Bowman and Ron Brna

Ron Brna's super smooth and super fast Tomy layout was the venue for the second event in the MASCAR series. BeachJets and Modifieds were the classes. Modifieds have a 3 ohm motor restriction, polymer tractions and ceramic motor magnets. Horsepower was going to be a prime factor on doing well on this track! A good crowd of NC racers were waiting for the small Virginia contingent. This series has evolved this year into a two state series, with no one north of the MASON-DIXON line making an appearance so far!

As usual the most popular class is BeachJet, here the cars are getting ready for tech. A new rule change at this event, is the allowing of open rear windows.

Don Pope leans in as Tom Bowman and Shawn Molter tech the cars.

C Main, had James Kennedy's Greg Davis Mercedes CLK-GTR, Donny Pope's Mike Engledge's Hot Rod Honda and Shawn Molter's Bat-Jet Datsun 260Z.

Bob Hall was looking very confident.

Ballistically quick, the Modifieds started practice. Seems record times from Bob's Scorpion, has alot to do with his confidence!
