Default HPT Majors

We had 4 ASedans at the new Heartland Park track. We ran one of the four 2.5 mile configurations. It was the first event on what we came to call the F1S8 course. This was the fast turn 1 and the slow turn 8. Tim White had an oil leak in the front of the engine which caused the fan belt to depart, taking power steering and (I think) water pump off line. He couldn't find the leak So, he packed up Saturday night. Andy Schniedermier broke a clutch disc on Sat qualifying. Andy and his brother, Corey pulled the tranny and I had a clutch in the trailer, so we ended up with three cars each day.
Since it was a new track, the fast race lap set the record.
I did a 1:54.746, and then barely beat it on Sunday with a 1:54.067.
Kim was second both days, and made me earn the win. Tim was a non-running 3rd on Sat and Andy 3rd on Sunday. The track is glass smooth and the A7 tires showed zero wear running both races. The old HPT corded A's in one race.
