First up #1 qualifier Dave632 and his BSRT G3 powered Chevy pickup vs Gnome and his Camaro powered by a Jag Dr chassis. Power wise the cars are evenly matched as the Chevy ran a 34.44 to the Camaros 34.26. The pickup ran the better ET however taking the win with a .3849 vs a .4110 for the Camaro.
That concludes the Spring Nationals at Smoky mountain for 2018. Congratulations to all the winners, finalists and all who competed. I would also like to thank our sponsor Super Tires and all the racers who donated prizes especially JJWallace who donated a body for everyone and GTS who donated a break in block for everyone. Cars that are not involved in next weeks list races will be sent out this week all others will be sent back the following week.
THANKS TO ALL

Congratulations to Sandfly for the Rookie Stock Inline win.....Hairy Canary for the Veteran Stock Inline win.....and Dave632 for the Super Comp Inline win!! There was some good racing this weekend for sure! Thanks to all of you that built cars and mailed them to Tennessee and also those that supported the event with prizes! We hope to see ALL of you back at the next event so stay tuned to the Event Calendar. Thank you to Racemaster Dave for taking the time and putting in the effort to run a top notch event!! Looking forward to the next one already.
Very exciting to now read all the results and comments, well done Dave on a excellent run event and congrats to all winners and participants, for us newbies from New Zealand this is epic stuff, cant wait for the next opportunity to send cars over to race or race against them here.
Thanks for all the appreciation guys. Found the problem with the camera after it was all over. It has a stupid foreground blur setting on it. Who would use that??? Seems it only blurs the foreground and leaves the background clear...
Great show Dave. Well done to all the racers that joined in and make these events great fun. Congrats to all the winners(Sandfly is still fizzing), Rick, Jeff and Dave. And a huge thank you to the sponsors for their generous support.
I have to say that Sandfly's car was inspired as it picked up performance after qualifying. Gnomes car was flying and it never really slowed, so to take that win was very good. However Sandfly is no longer eligible as a ROOKIE as he won his class. He does get the Javelin prize which will be sent back next week with all the other cars from New Zealand. We had a KIWI invasion here in Tennessee and they all ran good. KiwiDaves Camaro had high MPH for the event and that was no small accomplishment with all the fast cars that were here. At the next race down under we will have to send some good running cars.
Got my cars today Dave and WOW what a package!! Lots and lots of goodies! I can use everything that is in the box. Other than an original Super II body, I have my first ever lexan body, stickers...I am bit of a sticker freak, track billboard, tires....lots of tires, very nice braid....I like this stuff, a pull back car, and the custom GTS break in block. Christmas in May for sure. I don't know about ya'll, but when I get my cars back, it's like seeing an old friend...lol. I'm always happy to get them back from their journey! Thank you and all the sponsors.
We are two races into the season and it has been great so far. New members and participants...renewed enthusiasm...great events and sponsors...pretty awesome stuff! It's all of you guys and gals that make this all happen....so thanks to everybody! The NTRA International is the next event on the books in July, other events are planned but are not yet on the books so stay tuned for any event updates.
