Re: Columbia Gorge Championship.

I spent more time in the pits yesterday than I did ALL of last season!

Re: Columbia Gorge Championship.

I spent some time in the pits also, not any way near what you did. If there is any kind of weakness in a car, Springwater Raceway will find it!! It is a fun track though.

Re: Columbia Gorge Championship.

And to Bill for a podium finish.

Thanks to all who participated in this 3 race series at 3 different tracks. We are going to do it in the 2023 season also, so for those who like the format and the slick looking 962's, you have plenty of time to prepare your car.

Re: Columbia Gorge Championship.

Howie, with the new tracks in our area, maybe 5 RACES in the series next year?

Re: Columbia Gorge Championship.

I would be up for that. What a series that would be, two more tracks in the mix making it more challenging! I am in!!!
