April 21, 2018 Point Race 2 Results
Speedway welcomed Cub Scout Pack 960 from Delaware on this beautiful night.
I got the chance to talk to the leaders and kids throughout the night. The
young men ranged in grade level Kindergarten to fifth grade. I let them
watch warmups, heats and the chance to go back in the pits during
intermission to let them wrap their heads around the action before asking
some questions. Before our first feature event of the night which was the
250 Sportsman class, the boys had the chance to walk out on the track and
introduce themselves in front of the spectators... And then the questions
and the action started...
favorite part of the night thus far was "watching the cars go by."
Brody was rooting for the 41 of Ed Mort to win and likes "how they turn
and get through the corners." (As a past "favorite part" of
my night as a child growing up, I knew this had to be an answer from
someone. As a racer now, it is no longer my "favorite part.")
Austin was rooting for the "Superman" number 18 car of Richard
Byron to cross the checkered flags first, and his favorite thing of the
night so far was the "accidents." They always make a kids night.
Jacob was also rooting for Richard Byron, and Billy was going for the car
with no wing, the 10L of Liam Mulherin. Johnny Trendler and last
week's winner Andrew Locuson brought the field to the green flag. Locuson
jumped out to an early lead and for most of the race had no challenges.
Rookie Deana Cogdill, who started in 12th position, made her way up to 6th
by lap three with the wingless Liam Mulherin behind her. Jonathan John and
rookie Shea Wills traded positions for third for many laps as John claims
the spot before heading to the infield. Cogdill and Jacob Byron battled for
fourth; however, Cogdill hit a rut pushing high and lost ground. With four
to go, Locuson was approaching a lap car who slowed in turn two. Locuson
attempted to get around him but couldn't make it and ripped his right side
panel of his wing almost off thus being his biggest challenge of the race.
Shea Wills makes a last lap pass to secure the runner up spot. Andrew
Locuson, Shea Wills, Johnny Trendler, Jacob Bryon, and Deana Cogdill were
your top five.
the infamous wingless 600s were lining up, I went back down to talk to Pack
960 again. Patrick enjoyed going back to the pits during intermission and
climbing in a few of the cars. He was rooting for the black and green number
22 of Lee Reinhardt. Ben liked being able to walk on the racetrack and was
cheering for Gary Bozowski in the 97G. Brody was cheering for the 10 of
Lavar Scott and Tyler Tank rolled the four cylinders to the green
flag. L. Scott grabbed the lead for the first few laps before Chris Fenimore
took over taking the high line on a restart on lap nine. Sam Locuson put the
pressure on second taking that position and then challenging the leader but
just didn’t have enough to get the lead. The action continued mid back
with the Uncle/Nephew duo of Wayne Scott, Jr. and Wayne Scott in a heated
battled for the sixth position. On the last lap, a yellow flew setting up a
green/white/checkered finish as the top five were still battling hard for
one more lap. As the checkered flew, Chris Fenimore,
it got later in the night, the Cub Scout's either got hungry and went to get
some delicious food from the Conover Concession stand or got tired because I
was only able to talk with two before this race. Austin said he would like
to see the rookie driver in the 75, Dale Wagner, win as Luke went with the
car that was in victory lane earlier in the night, the 21 of Chris Locuson. Chris
Locuson and Anthony Chvostal paced the 270 class to the green. After coming
out with a new top on, C. Locuson took the lead and never looked back and
soon hit lap traffic in the first five laps. Chvostal saved himself from
almost spinning but managed to hold on to second place for majority of the
race as he struggled through a rut during the feature which would take away
any ground he would gain on restarts to get to the leader. Billy Gray and
Rookie Thomas Rinck had a nice battle going for third position, but Rinck
got tangled with a lap car. On restart lap 19, Gray tries the inside of
Chvostal but couldn’t make it stick though he didn’t give up as they
continued to race each other hard.
Gray made a last lap pass to take the runner up spot. Chris. Locuson,
Billy Gray, Anthony Chvostal, Jonathan John, and Joe Bednarek were your top
Jr 125 class came on the track and most of these kids are close in age to
the kids of Cub Scout Pack 960 which I think they found pretty cool. Luke
and Ben both thought the young lady of the 18, Sarah Napora, would make her
way to victory lane. Patrick went with the Rookie of Landyn Pollard. Sarah
Napora and Juel Acosta lead the rest of the field to start the race. Napora
found herself in lap traffic with just three laps on the board. Landyn
Pollard took the low line under Acosta for second as the two of them traded
positions for multiple laps. On a restart, the leaders got tangled causing
Acosta to bring a yellow out. Rookie Wayne Scott, III, was running a solid
third with another rookie, Devon Dvorak who started ninth behind him. Napora
never let lap traffic slow her down as she had a half track lead over her
closest competitor. As the last checkered flew of the night, Sarah Napora,
Landyn Pollard, Devon Dvorak, Wayne Scott III, and Hadyn Mulherin rounded
out the top five.
the end of each feature, Cub Scout Pack 960 presented the winners with a
plaque they made, got a picture in victory lane, and even got a few high
fives. Airport Speedway would like to thank you all for coming out and hope
you enjoyed yourselves. I, personally, would like to thank Bruce and Roger
for taking the time out to talk to me and give me a little knowledge of what
Cub Scout Pack 960 is about. Also, thank you to all the young men who let me
question them throughout the night and taking the time to make something
special for our feature winners. To the drivers who made the kid's night by
letting them in their car, giving an autograph, and taking the time out to
greet them, Thank You. Cub Scout Pack 960 we hope to see you back again.

jobs, valve grinding, valve seating, valve seal modification and valve seat
cutting are allowed.
seat inserts may be reworked or replaced with any seat of original
dimensions. Any dimensional
thickness of the stock inserts may not be increased.
Valve seats can be ground with multiple angles.
Blending of the valve seat into the head is permitted but cannot
extend more than ¼” into the aluminum head measured from where the seat
meets the head.
may not have a higher lift than the stock factory cam. (duration is open)
cannot be larger in diameter than factory stock valves.
machining to remove weight from the crank (balancing of crank is ok) (no

removal of clutch.
must remain operational
modification to the stock transmission gears, no close-ratio gears or
nonstandard gear-ratios. All gears must remain in transmission, no removing
any gears. No polishing or coatings of any kind
aftermarket ECU’s, stock appearing ECU only. ECU must be a production ECU
that was originally supplied by the same manufacturer as the engine. Racing
ECU’s may be used, as long as they were originally supplied by the same
manufacturer as the engine. Ex: Honda motorcycle engines must run ECU’s
that were supplied by Honda on their motorcycle engines.
Re-flashing of ECU and factory race ECU’s are allowed. Rev limit
for all 600cc (nothing larger than 600cc) engines is 16,100 rpms. Rev limit
for all 636cc engines is 14, 800 rpms. U6SA specified Rev Limit must remain
intact at all times (no switched or gear specific limiters). If a computer
is hooked up to check the ECU it must be set to U6SA specified rpm’s, no
tolerance. See specifications list for RPM limits.

and secured in the wiring harness. (the wires must be taped up, not visible,
and unable to be switched in any way)
mechanically forced induction (turbo charging, supercharging)
carburetors may be used on any engine, regardless of year of engine.
Switching to carburetors on engines that came with fuel injection usually
increases the rev limiter due to the removal of the injectors as the ECU
cuts fuel to limit rpm’s before it cuts the ignition. A re-flash of the
ECU will be required if using carburetors in order to comply with the rev
limit rule 7. a)
the engine did not come from the factory with fuel injection, fuel injection
may not be used.
