    If you were only focused on 1st place, it was pretty boring, as Hirschman finished where he started. Decent racing in in the rest of the field though. Would have been better with more laps and one tire though.

    Was this an MRS event?

  3. Rafter Fan,
    No, independent Open Modified show, not affiliated to any series.

  4. Fast Eddie says

    FYI, according to the guy selling Milton Cat MRS t-shirts at the event, they were awarding MRS points for this race. Not saying this is necessarily correct, but that’s what I was told. This apparently was the only Saturday race that did not get rained out around here.

  5. Fast Eddie,
    The MRS has gotten into a trend of connecting themselves to certain Open Modified events and offering series points for those events. But it doesn’t make the event an MRS sanctioned event.

  6. Fast Eddie says

    Shawn, absolutely agree, just wanted to put that info out. Not an “official” MRS race but they’re having a “race within a race” I guess. I think they did the same thing at the NHMS Open race in April.
