Default "LIVE" from Summit Motorsports Park D3 LODRS

Let's get this started. Racers are stacked up in Linders lot waiting for the credentials and parking to start. I'm rolling out of the Motor City in about an hour. With the weak signal that blankets Norwalk, I'll do my best to feed this post with news and photos. And like just about every D3 and Norwalk LODRS, there is the threat of rain on Sunday. While its hot and windy today, a cold front will pass through tonite and temps look cool for Friday and Saturday.

Wish we could come. Maybe next year. Brad Z told me I need to enter the wheel stand contest. Would be a lot of fun. Good luck to everyone....

I rolled into Linders Lot at 1:00 and I'm #198 in line. This area is experiencing High winds today that made the tow a little more taxing. The D3 staff has starting selling credentials - it will be a while till my line moves. Stay tuned.





Rolling and compacting Linders Lot.

Does anyone offer CO2 refills that will be there this weekend? Or do they do it at the track? Thanks

Hats off to the staff from Summit motorsports Park for quickly processing all of the credential sales. They served 200 racers in 90 minutes and two hours after opening they had taken care of everyone. Parking also went well and it's a pleasure to park on the nicely groomed asphalt pits here at Norwalk














All of the cars that pitted today went through tech and that to move quickly and without any drama. The D3 tech crew looked like it handled quite a few chassis certifications as well.

John Dourlet made the tow from Colorado and this is the first stop of a multi race divisional and national event early summer tour. From here he heads to Maple grove, Epping, Englishtown, Bristol and Norwalk again.

Dave and Ben Wenzel had this cool shirt made to celebrate their 50 years of racing and 50 years of Camaro.



KB Trailer Sales hosted a racer appreciation dinner tonight with some really tasty hamburgers hotdogs etc.

And this appeared to be the Goodyear tire trailer.




Me. G - Garret Ghezzi - this is one of the original 50 factory SS AMX cars. Mr. G is now running a 290.









This is an amazing inventory of rental golf carts to have on hand for weekly racing. Is there any other track in the country that has this many of its own golf carts for rent ?

This is Ernie Neals latest SS car. It's absolutely stunning in person and filled with some really cool craftsmanship details that just make you smile .
