We are now up to 66 racers competing for points this year thanks to everyone's recruiting efforts and familiar faces coming out to race with us.

We have 16 (24%) Rookies this year and our numbers are better than they have been the last 2 years!

Slant 6 racing is alive and well! :wink:

Post subject:  Clay City Results

Things just got really interesting... :wink: With the Clay City race this weekend we have the top 6 racers all in serious contention for the Championship!! :shock:

Rodney Hargis pulled off back to back wins at Clay City to tie with Ron Hamby.

Ryan Covalt advanced into the #2 position and just 10 points behind Ron and Rodney.

Then there is another tie at the #3 spot between Greg Ondayko and Andrew Howard who are, again, just 10 points behind Ryan Covalt.

Rounding out the Top 6 is Rusty Heisten who is, yet again, just ten points behind Greg Ondayko and Andrew Howard...

See what I mean!? :D :D

Someone,... Okay, Me :lol: put up a bounty on Ron Hamby 'cuz I wuz tired of him winning so often! :twisted:
(Actually, I just wanted to liven things up a bit. :wink: )

Anywho... If my math is right I could be payin' out some cash! :D

$100 to Rodney, Ryan or Greg

$200 to Andrew Howard

$300 to Rusty Heisten

Here's the "Bounty" post: http://www.slantsix.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=59144

There are still 3 races out West at Redding, CA (+ the 2nd Woodburn make up race) where Andrew Howard will surely be.

2 races on the East Coast at Hagerstown, MD (Mason Dixon) where Ron, Rodney, Ryan and Greg will be.

And 1 race at Tulsa, OK where Rusty Heisten will be.

If I wuz a bettin' man,... Which I s'pose I am since I put up some cash on the Championship this year. :wink:

I'd hafta put my money on.... (I just CAN'T pick Ron Hamby! :lol: )... Rodney Hargis!! He has been hungry for his third National Championship and his Double Header at Clay City shows that he is, as usual, dialed in. :wink:

It would be cool to see Ryan or Greg pull off their first Championship and they are both definitely in the hunt.

I've been pulling for Andrew Howard for several years, ever since he was oh so close in 2013. I ain't s'posed to say it, but.... I sure hope he wins!! :shock: :twisted: :lol:

Rusty Heisten is the Dark Horse of the bunch. He has to travel the furthest of any racer and only has the one race left at Tulsa, which will probably have a pretty low car count in its first year... Unless he hauls all the way to MD for a massive East Coast Slugfest!! :twisted: :twisted:

Then there's always the Wild Card.... 20 points for setting a record! :shock: :wink:
Rusty Heisten has already set his for the year, but Ron Hamby has used it to his advantage in the past. Greg Ondayko is always looking for that last 100th and another ounce to remove from Ruster. I'm not sure about record potential for the other Top 4 racers, but I've nudged Andrew Howard a little in that direction...

Here's how things have shaken out over the last 4 years:

2012
Winner - CJ Stoakes
Runner Up - Andrew Howard

2013
Winner - Ron Hamby
Runner Up - Andrew Howard
Third - Rodney Hargis

2014
Winner - Ron Hamby
Runner Up - Rodney Hargis
Third - Rusty Heisten

2015
Winner - Ron Hamby
Runner Up - Rodney Hargis
Third - Andrew Howard

What? :? ................. Oh yeah!....... The points!! :shock:

Here ya go. :wink:

There was a round missing from Saturday's post in the Clay City thread. I'm leaving for London, so I won't be able to fix the points until Friday.

Basically add 10 for Steve and Rodney. I had already subtracted the 1 round race from Rodney's total. I'll fix my banter above Friday as well.

That puts Rodney in a tie with Ron and bumps his PI up to 0.3947 (15/38.)

Nevermind. I had so many PMs about it I went ahead and fixed it now.

Also, there are 3 races left out West. They still have to run the 2nd Woodburn make up race.

And, Steve Adams may still be a Rookie. I will confirm that Friday.

As always, let me know if you see any errors. But this time I ain't fixin' it until Friday! :evil: :lol:

WOW! 6 racers within 40 points! That is so cool. :lol: :lol: I wish I was one of them! So congrats to everyone on some great racing this year so far, and lets hit the last races of the year really hard. Come on out and you will get to see a National Champion crowned somewhere! :lol: :lol:

Post subject:  Points

At the banquet in '15 and '16 it was discussed and approved to add Rusty and the racers from that area to the Eastern Division.. Someone was supposed to figure out the exact new line, but I don't remember who.

Thanks

Author:  Rick Covalt [ Thu Sep 29, 2016 2:45 pm ]
Post subject: 

Yes that is correct. Rusty and the crew were adopted into the east. I believe Lou was working on a dividing line somewhere.

Yes and to even make things more exciting, Ryan actually set a D Nitrous record in the 1/8 mile at Wilkesboro in August. So as soon as Seymour verifies the record, Ryan, Rodney, and Ron will all be tied at 190 points. How is that for an ending at final race weekend? :lol: :lol:

Post subject:  Records

I do have the paperwork for records set at Wilkesboro by Charlie Schmid in C/nitrous and Ryan Covalt in D/nitrous both on the 1/8 mile. Ryan will update the record list for them.

Hey Kidd! You'd better win some rounds out West!

Um, wow. I don't think we have ever had a 3-way tie going into the last race of the season! Will be very interesting to see about this weekend at Medford too.

Good luck to all and see some of you soon in MD.
