The Northern New Jersey and South Jersey regions will be conducting a MARRS - NJRRS championship series event at New Jersey Motorsports Park. This event is the Third Annual Lightning Challenge regional races on the Lightning course on 10-11 July. Last year, this event featured a large entry and close, competitive racing. We are looking forward to a repeat this year.

The Lightning Challenge will be the first leg of the Jersey Trifecta. For 2010, the Jersey Racing Board has announced that any competitor who enters the Third Annual Lightning Challenge in July and the Summer Thunder MARRS-NARRC regional on Thunderbolt in August will be eligible for a $100 rebate from the JRB by entering the Jersey Road Race Classic in October. Same driver, no restriction on car / class

There will be a separate SCCA Test Day on Friday, 9 July on Lightning.

Online registration is now open at on the DLB site ( www.dlbracing.com ) - Select South Jersey Region or Northeast Division as the Club to see the event calender.

Anybody have a long nose 1.6 engine that theyd like to sell at the track this weekend? It is going into a street car, so I am not looking for anything prepped, just in good running condition.

Short nose may work too, but it has to be in good shape (i'm going to look at the crank keyway before I buy it).

Let me know!

thanks

Test day: no official times, but some definite stand outs.

SM: Kevin Kopp looked unbeatable. Tosh was also right up to speed despite sleeping through half the test day. Brunk and Zalner will also be a factor. I don't think they were showing their cards yet.

SSM: Matt Jackson was crazy fast, same for Wible and Chris Windsor. Pressman will probably be right up front despite skipping the test day.

We'll see how qualifying shakes out.

1. Be happy your paddocked at Lightning, not Thunderbolt
2. At least when the guy in front of you drops wheels you won't be driving into a dust cloud.
3. Drifting is fun! Especially at track where there isn't much to hit (read, not limerock.)

The Thunderbolt race last year was the wettest weekend I have ever seen. Spent most of Saturday evening ankle deep with nowhere to go.

If I remember correctly, David came very close to snagging a win at last years NJMP races.

Closed the deal this time leaving no doubt.

Way to go! [thumbsup]


Gotta give a big shout-out also to Mike Lamaina who drove two great races on Sunday. [Smash]

Awesome races at NJMP this weekend. Congrats to Pete Maerz on a killer race on Saturday. Great fun racing nose to tail with you AGAIN on Sunday. Same to Muda in the SM race. Thanks for posting the video John, it was great to see myself running 4 off from behind. Thanks to the entire Windsor Customs team, Chris, Scott, Bill, etc. for letting me pick their brains week after week,I guess a few things actually sunk in this weekend.

Thanks David for stopping to see if I was okay. Great job on the win. The Kopps for the technical advice. The RP car carrier. The Meatheads.

I will have something for you guys next year.

It was really nice to see all the racers and locals who stopped to see if they could help get me back on the road. Makes you think the world isnt going to hell just yet.

Dave, congratulations on your SSM win! I bet you really wish the video camera battery was charged now.

Honorable mentions go to Jonathon Pressman for hardcharging from the midpack, Greg Obadia for taking fastest race lap and Matt Jackson for setting an unbelievable test day and qualifying pace.

SM race was fun to watch. Tough break for Kevin Kopp who was on rails before the plug wire popped off. Congrats to Scott Brunk, Tosh Desai and Zack Skolnick on their podium finishes.

Thanks to all the DC region drivers and workers that made the trip. You guys truly bring the show!
