Sorry for the late posting on this
Thanks everyone who participated. The feedback from this race was great from both the racers as well as the track. Special thanks to Able Chevrolet in Rio Vista as well as Chuck Gerughty for making this happen.
Plans are in the making to do this again next year perhaps on a higher level.

If it feels like it's going side ways... IT IS!

Jim
Your crew and your great announcing made me and the Corvette drivers feel welcome and I know we all want to come back to race at SonLOLoma.

Jim,
Thank you for the kind words, it means a lot.
The turnout was lower than expected which was about half of the 54 car count we had a few years back.
Perhaps some more earlier promotion is needed especially among the car clubs. I am thinking about a big trophy to the club with the most number of entries for a starter.
The Corvette guys were great, always ready to run when called in addition that they needed no reminders to wear their required safety equipment such as helmets and SFI approved drivers jackets for sub 11.50 ET runs.
I had a great time watching, just wish my C4 had not developed a mechanical issue after the first time run which ended my driver Bill Taggart from competing.
Looking forward to next year. Nice to have you on the forum Jim. Should you have any ideas for next year, let me hear from you. Also, if you know of any more Corvette owners that enjoy drag racing, tell them about this site.
I will be starting a new Corvette topic soon here of which I hope we can build on
Take care,
Jim
