Sunday, August 12th, 2018 – For the 2nd week in a row, we had track and karts ready to go early–and only two drivers showed up, so we had a makeup race.

Makeup Race START – 20 laps:

1st. Josh Arnold (Arnie Racing #93)
2nd. Matt Stevens (Galletta’s Greenhouse Racing #1)
3rd. (R) Stephen James (Galletta’s Greenhouse Racing #2)

(R) = 1st time rookie

With so few drivers and laps on track, it’s usually tough to get even a single position change. The race finished as it started.

Makeup Race FINISH – 20 laps:

1st. Josh Arnold (Arnie Racing #93) – Earned 10th in 7/22/2018‘s 30 & 25-lappers (50 & 41 pts.)
2nd. Matt Stevens (Galletta’s Greenhouse Racing #1)  BANKED BONUS POINTS
3rd. (R) Stephen James (Galletta’s Greenhouse Racing #2) 15th in 6/10/2018‘s 25-Lapper (+25 pts.)

NOTES: As usual, handicap inverts via primarily wins and points. Tiebreakers are as follows:

(1) Current Season Wins (tie-breaker is Current Season Points-Per-Race)
(2) Current Season Points-Per-Race (tie-breaker is total points)
(3) All-Time Wins (tie-breaker is weight)
(4) Returning veteran drivers start in the rear of current season’s handicap (inverted by the tie-breakers of (a) all-time wins or (b) weight, and in front of newbie rookies)
(5) Drivers without enough on-track experience–we call them Newbie Rookies–start in the back (until they AND their fellow competitors feel you can hold a solid line and race clean without incidents and accidents), handicapped by weight.
(6) Choice. One can choose to start in either their handicapped start OR the rear.
(7) 1-Lap-for-points drivers start in dead last and are to leave the track safely on the 1st possible pass or an open pit gate.
