2c Results:The 2c racecar is powered
by a 406 CID small block GM cast iron engine. The transmission is a stock
Saginaw Three Speed.
The rear end is a Nine Inch Ford housing. The gear ratio is 6:20
(locked). We can run on 10/8 inch Hoosier tires.
Event,8/24/2019 - Hidden Valley, packed
house. Gary's start the heat race was strong, 2 laps in and the triple-disk
We can't catch a break. We actually are
competitive at Hidden Valley, these are "street stocks" and we hope the
does not fold like other tracks. Pro-Stock racecars are Limited
Late Models, not Street Stock.
After 3 weeks of modifications to the 2c,
we head to Hidden Valley in Clearfield.
7/6/2019 - Dissapointment with rule changes and other issues,
Gary will no longer race the 2c at Latrobe.
Latrobe, this place is like Romper Room. I love kids, but Latrobe is simply
too loose with "Kidz" stuff.
The 2c had more issues. We don't any get HOT
LAPS, so we must trust the racecar setup off the trailer. This night another
part failed us.
We can't shake out the bugs during HEAT RACES. Only a
fool would put an un-tested racecar on the pole...stupid again!!
Latrobe, actually beat the rain tonight. Lots of
fans in the pits for us. That ugly "miss-fire" popped up again. I know where
the problem is. Started the feature in the back, finished in the back. But
the back is 7th because we were not the first car to leave the track
no cars in our division. This is stupid...
- Latrobe first
actual race (DNF) An isolated shower slowed the program, the 2c returned to
the pits during the heat race. The rear brakes failed when a
broken bolt caused the rear caliper bracket to spin on the axle tube.
Un-official: 9th place
5/11/2019 - Latrobe first race (cancelled) The team was
in the pits. Track conditions appeared hopeless, then the rain ended all
5/4/2019 - Latrobe Opener (rainout) No make up date scheduled.
The management at Latrobe have not rescheduled an official opener,
so we will put another weekend into the lost column. Unless something breaks
which is anyones guess in WPA, we may not see any racing
till June, and that may be a "double points" night...double ZERO??
4/27/19 - DNA (Did Not Attend) Next
4/20/19 - Latrobe Speedway Test
and Tune (rainout)
4/13/19 - Latrobe Speedway Test and
Tune. Car will receive a lot of attention to detail this coming week.
Gary's first experience behind the wheel of a racecar in over a
The track was a little rough, but considering that only a
few months ago the entire surface was weeds, things went pretty good. The top
was dry and any bite that was there was coming apart really fast, but all
in all, the day went well
The last time anyone raced on the Latrobe Speedway
"bad fast" half mile was almost a decade ago.
Gary had only one minor setback, and
pre-determined the problem, but skipped over all instincts, and went to the
track carrying the spare parts needed. We never got on the track before the
"steering quickner" failed, off the trailer. We replaced it and managed to
turn 25 laps of solid practice.
Gary's first intention was turning laps.
This was a "car and driver" shakedown. We will use the next session to get
the car dialed in closer. It will take time getting used to the new tire
