    The 2012 race is on Saturday, July 21 (in Akron)

    Cleen Sheet/Sigma Nu ( CSSN) racing is attempting a 3-peat. (would be a 4-peat for the cook)
    ZE looks tough with a smaller car and new wheels.
    Should be close, come enjoy some fun

    The race is over. Clean sheet racing secured it's 3rd straight victory with a time of 26.655 seconds. The track was much slower this year due to being resealed with what appears to be driveway sealer. This stuff looks good but gets very soft when warm and it was warm. I believe we actually made progress this year despite finishing 0.070 off the record.

    Our B car looked good for 2nd but had issues with fogging due to an extended wait at the starting line and and crashed out, leaving a large gap (0.114 sec) back to 2nd place ( ZE's new car) and an even bigger one back to 3rd (0.172) ( ZE's 2-quik, the 2009 winner and 2010 runner up).

    Congrats to "the cook" on his 4th consecutive win (1 with ZE and 3 with CSSN).

    top 6 all had wheel fairings except 4th.

    top 8 appeared to be juiced

    hot sun plus juiced rubber was a bad idea
    hot sun plus juiced rubber under a wheel fairing seemed fine

    CSSN is conducting a survey. If you are interested in the AA Ultimate Speed Challenge or the NDR Ultimate race as a participant then I urge you to participate.
