Text/photo review as Vegas is being a turdball.

Part 1 of 2

Patrick McNeil (#17) leads the field to green infront of Mika Paasonen (#90) and Klaus Schenider (#1)


McNeil gets the early jump into the mineshaft.


A couple cars go three wide in the mineshaft, however, they would get through without incident.


The field comes out of the tunnel.


Regina McCloud sports a new livery this week.


Cliff Raymond in the 72 is making his Formula Overdrive debut. The Idaho native's entry was accepted when Sovero Yohans and his team were kicked out by Hanmore officials.


Our best friend Cody Keaton is off the pace as usual.


Caution 1, Lap 3
Rossini and Schenider make contact in the hairpin.


Look out!


Both would continue on..


McNeil leads on the restart.


Gaggle of cars in the mineshaft.


Caution 2, Lap 9

The race would resume with Kenny Morales (#08) as the race leader.


Caution 3, lap 31
Cody Keaton has lost the motor.


He needs to get to the pitlane...


..But Rossini (#15) is there.


Wheel to wheel contact O BUDDAY


Look out for that pitwall!


OUCH!


Chaud Roddick (#09) has nowhere to go...


Another huge hit for Keaton.


Both cars would go out of the race.


Morales led on the restart with less than 15 laps to go. Rossini is the lapped car to the inside.


Cliff Raymond (#72) gets a run on Morales into the mineshaft, and would take the lead.


Caution 4, Lap 40
Morales is falling back in the pack and gets turned.





Caution 5, Lap 44
Gordon Sting (#24) dumps the (#7) of Christophe Tremblay towards the exit of the mineshaft.







Cliff Raymond led on the restart with only 3 to go.


It would be smooth sailing for Cliff Raymond as he won on debut in the Hanmore Formula Overdrive series!

Spoiler:
Roddick Unhappy with Keaton

After Cody Keaton blew up and forced himself into the tire wall, he spun back on to the track and right into Chaud Roddick's path. Roddick, who had already been involved in one incident, was not impressed. He had this to say, "I really fail to understand why he forced the issue like that. He ran Rossini into the pits, and himself in the wall, and took me out as well. He obviously needs to in back to driving school and learn that cars are solid objects."

Spoiler:
Rossini displeased over incident
Rossini, 21, hit a patch of problematic pitting, as he was spun out 3 laps on his way to an already torrid race. Rossini, who had finished 7th and 2nd prior to todays event was heard to have commented on the matter; "That's not what you do. If you blow an engine, you do not dive straight into the pits, especially when there is a car in the way. If you really had to stop the car, it would have been better if you had pulled it off to the side. It was a racing incident though, sometimes you just make idiotic decisions.

Gallagher Pleased with Second Place Run

Meghan Gallagher finished second in the latest race and reclaimed her points lead. After moving up ten positions throughout the race, Gallagher ran out of time on catching the leader. She stated after the race, "The car was great today. The team deserves these type of finishes, not the kind we got at Milwaukee. If I keep driving it right and the team keeps making good cars, we will be a contender all year long."

I got permission from pennst to do this.

Daniel Leckliter to do pre race and ride the pace car at Mayville

Many tracks have local drivers, most of the drivers don't do anything special for their home track, unless your name is Daniel Leckliter.

Daniel grew up just 3 miles from where the new Mayville Street Course is located, and and and another half mile from the street course is the Mayville Motorsports Park, where Leckliter drove to three straight go kart championships, and got his first taste of a Sprint Car. Now since Formula Overdrive has come to give the track it's first race later in the year, Leckliter wants to be part of it, not only because of him, but because of his hometown fans as well.

"I was amazed when I first heard of the course being constructed, and when Formula Overdrive decided to schedule the race later this year, the fans wanted me to be there, not only in attendance, but they want me to give the command to start the engines, and to ride in the pace car."

Leckliter was also asked "I see that you have a driver in Formula Overdrive, how emotional would it be if he won in front of your hometown crowd?"

He replied "It would be the greatest day of my life as a car owner, granted Kenny [Morales] should celebrate and bask in the glory of his win, but I want him to know that he brought Mayville's hometown boy's team to victory lane."

Daniel and his brother Robert both tested the course earlier this year in April.

Spoiler:
Rossini continues bad luck streak
Rossini continued his lack of luck in the Round of Memphis, after a car was launched into his engine cover, promptly ending his race 57 laps from the end. This comes after a retirement at Green Valley, before another accident in Karjala cost Rossini his chance to pre-qualify in the biggest race on the TM Master Cup calendar. Rossini was quoted to be "lacking morale" and "highly annoyed" by an anonymous pit crew member. Reports are yet to emerge directly from Rossini.

Gilreath in total shock over top-10
Ethan Gilrerath finished two laps down. While that seems par for the course for the young driver from San Luis Obispo, California, he finished 10th at the Delano 200 in Memphis. "I am almost in shock!" said Gilreath. " You don't understand what this means to me!" Gilreath's prior best finish in any form of racing was a 11th in the Central American F3 championship Although only 14 cars started that race and 2 were wrecked on the first lap)

Got rumors for 2013 Silly Season? Post them here! Razz

New Jersey businessman to start Overdrive team?

New Jersey businessman Jonathan Trent stated today at Memphis that he was scouting the paddock for two current drivers in the series to drive for his proposed Formula Overdrive team, Trent GP. The team would build their own engines and would be able to find sponsorship for the 2013 season.

Kenny Morales to Move Up the Grid?

With Tommi Arjanien's supposed move to stock cars in 2013, the main spot at the ClarTech factory team is up for grabs. Rumors say Kenny Morales, the former VSCC driver is being looked at for the race seat. This comes as no surprise as Daniel Leckliter stated the new two-car format would put "intense cost and pressure on us."

Bigger Manufacturers in 2013?

Many bigger manufacturers have stated their intent to field an engine in the 2013 Hanmore Formula Overdrive season. Lycoia and STS are two main suppliers that have sent in their applications to Hanmore officials. This would put pressure on smaller teams and drivers like Pushanda, Ishikawa, Roddick, Gallagher, and Gilreath to either find a ride in a bigger team or exit the series in 2013 in hopes to return in 2014. These drivers need good runs to prove to manufacturers they deserve a spot on a top team. (OOC: Many of the one-car teams will be disbanded next season. I still want to keep many of other user's drivers on the grid for next season.)

McNeil signs 3-year contact extension; GLM looking for 2nd driver to replace Fischer next season

Patrick McNeil knows what he's doing next season at least for the next 3 seasons. McNeil signed a 3 year deal with Great Lakes Motorsports that would keep him in the team's Formula Overdrive entry through 2015.

With one driver position on the team locked, GLM is now looking for a second. The team's other driver, Jeff Fischer, is not returning next season in favor of moving to the Dash Cup Series.

(OCC: PM me if your interested over put a story on here that your interested in the team.)

Alexander Vilinov and Zeus Godson to enter the 2013 season?

The two drivers, who have recently been acquired by Terra International Motorsports, are the two drivers to potentially drive in the series come 2013. The move by Lycoia Motors applying to be an engine supplier allowed the manufacturer's factory team to make a move into the series. Greg Woodard, who will be attempting the final race of the season, has stated this would be a prime outlet for Lycoia, as their cars so far have been mechanically sound for many other drivers in other series. Only one example however, would prove other wise. That driver is now in the ATATS racing for his own team.

It isn't clear what sponsors will be on the cars, but rumors are that Lycoia Motors and Nova Satellite Radio will be in contention for the sponsorship spots.

REGINA WILL RETURN NEXT SEASON, VOLPI AND GRI TO REUNITE ONCE AGAIN?

With rumors about the 2013 Formula Overdrive season already under way, Gravity Racing, Inc. has already confirmed that Regina McCloud will return next season, due to her having a lifetime contract with the team. With FO returning the two-car per team rule, GRI is currently searching for a driver for the second team for 2013.

Also, the one-manufacturer per team rule will also return next season, and there are rumors swirling that Volpi and GRI will team up once again like in the 2011 season. The two teams have developed a great relationship over the past two seasons, mainly with GRI team owner Packer Carroll's affiliation with the Volpi Racing Team as one of its drivers. While the rumors have not been confirmed, there is a strong possibility of Volpi and GRI joining forces for 2013, under the name they used in 2011, Volpi Gravity Racing.

PACKER: Cyril Volpi and I are definitely talking about it. We would certainly like to revisit the success we had in 2011. So, hopefully, we can come to an agreement for the 2013 season.

Vijay Pushanda to run the Hanmore World Championship

In a suprising announcement, Vijay Pushanda will join his brother, Sulinder, at the Hanmore World Championship event that closes the Formula Overdrive season. Vijay said in a press release, "I ran in the 2011 Formula Overdrive Season. And it kick-started my new American carrer, however, I have never ran on a oval in an openwheeled car. So I initally was against joining the event. But after seeing some very hard crashes this year, and see the drivers walk away. I've changed my status on openwheel cars running on ovals. Plus, Sulinder was pestering me to do it."
Pushanda will be racing for himself. However, he has not announced his sponser, or number.

Altercation involving Ross Carter and Cody Keaton allegedly reported

After an incident in the middle of the race where Ross Carter and sister Tanya were swept up after Cody Keaton made contact with the #92 of Tanya Carter, it has been reported that in the pit area after the race, Ross Carter has been involved in an altercation with Cody Keaton.

Over the radio, Ross Carter said "I swear to god, I'm going to punch that son of a bitch in the face after the race. Unbelievable. That's not the first time we've had trouble with him. He's done." Carter may have stuck to his word, as it was reported that Carter found Keaton post-race, and reportedly started yelling at Keaton. After that, allegedly, Carter punched Keaton in the face and stormed away from the season. Ross Carter, nor sister Tanya were available for interviews.

Tanya Carter in serious but stable condition after crash

After a large lap 7 accident, Tanya Carter, the young Irish driver, was taken to hospital for what was expected to be "life-threatening injuries", however, Tanya Carter's condition started getting better as the day went on, and at around 5:30pm EST, Tanya came around and was conscious and responding in short sentences to visitors and doctors.

Tanya's car was struck by Meghan Gallagher's when Gallagher was sent airbourne into the catchfence. The right rear tire struck Tanya's cockpit, and hit Tanya herself, causing Tanya to have a severe concussion, a broken right arm, and several broken ribs, and will see her out of the car for the forseeable future.

Tanya's replacement will be father Garry, who had this to say on the matter. "I'm glad that wasn't any worse for Tanya, but I'm really upset that this has happened to her. She was having a fantastic season, with a win to her name. It's a real shame."

Ross Carter also said something on the matter, saying he hopes that Tanya "pulls through" on Twitter. Ross Carter said also to the press that Tanya wanted to pursue a career in stock car racing, so this may be more of an incentive for Tanya to make the transition, if she recovers in time.

Spoiler:
Meghan Gallagher In Severe Condition After Violent Crash

Fear filled the historic Darlington Speedway after eight laps of racing today. Many people who are against pack type racing on ovals with open wheel cars saw what they knew would inevitably happen. While the accident began innocently enough with a car brushing the wall, everything stacked up from there. In the mess both Tanya Carter and Meghan Gallagher went airborne and landed hard back on the track. Many drivers used more avoidance maneuvers while avoiding the wreck which caused it to be substantially worse than what it could have been. After the wreck, Gallagher was unconscious in the racecar. Officials worked as quickly as they could to rush the unconscious Gallagher to the ambulance. Still unconscious, she was airlifted to the hospital.

Later on, she became awake and alert, but in serious pain. The extent of her injuries had not been revealed, but according to Big Mac Racing owner, Thomas Mac, things are not all great. Mac old us, "When the car hit the ground, Meghan's feet were lodged in part of the car... and were partially crushed under the blow of the impact. Along with that she has re-broken her leg that she broke two years ago at the wreck at Dwyer in the Hawk Slider incident and her left arm. She's been through so much these last two years... I just can't believe this happened. Something needs to be done to improve the safety of these cars. These cars need to stay on the ground. If that means slowing them down or breaking up the pack racing, so be it. We could've been less fortunate. I haven't heard much about Tanya (Carter), but I wish her a speedy recovery as well. It will be a long road to recovery, but I'll be there the whole way through.

When asked about a replacement driver, Thomas Mac told us, "I haven't even had much time to think about that with all the activity that has happened today. Sara (Meghan's older sister) is on her way to us right now from Daytona where the RROL's funding is unclear. If she has the right mindset I may ask her, but I have plenty of drivers I could ask to put in the car in our program. Meghan wants us to continue our season. Her and the team were doing such a good job, picking up the team's first gross victory ever first race this year. I just pray for a speedy recovery for Meghan and Tanya and nothing like this happens to all of us again."

McNeil finishes 7th, while teammate Fischer critical of officials after crash

For GLM's two drivers, Darlington was the tale of two tapes. For Patrick McNeil, Darlington was a chance to put this season back on track. For Jeff Fischer, who entered 4th in the standing it was chance to maybe capitalize on momentum.

McNeil was just in front of the pack of cars when the big crash that saw big hits for Gallagher and Carter. After the race was called, McNeil was posted with a 7th place finish. He's currently 10th in the standing.

Fischer on the other hand wasn't so lucky. Fischer was one of the cars involved in the crash. He was lucky however to walk away without injury. Afterword, Fischer was very vocal about the incident.

"That should not have happened. I don't know what the officials are thinking. First Ryan [Griffin] is injured in a testing crash with this package, and now we have Tanya and Megan with serious injuries after the package is run here at Darlington. I don't know what [expletive] moron up there decided that Darlington was the perfect place to not only run these cars but in packs like we were, but there need to be [expletive] fired and blacklisted from auto racing. It's a good thing I'm leaving the series at the end of this year, because after today, I'm afraid for these guys and for what more could happen."

Fischer is currently 6th in points, 20 behind current leader Kenny Morales. He is tied with Tanya Carter, but with today incident this will likely change that.

New Aero Package to be Run at Atlanta and Las Vegas

Hanmore officials announced that the new aero package that will be run at Texas for the Hanmore World Championships will also be run at the Atlanta Motor Speedway and the Las Vegas Autoring. This comes as a reaction to the Darlington race, which several drivers were injured in a massive accident resulting from pack racing.

"Pack racing will be heavily reduced," said Hanmore CEO Frank Dolan. "We want to give these drivers a chance to have some breathing room on the high banked ovals."

Tests for this new package are scheduled for after the Mosport race at Atlanta in a week's time.

Ishikawa sore, but OK after big wreck

After being sent to a local hospital following the massive crash on lap 7 of the ClarTech Darlington Dash that severely injured Tanya Carter and Meghan Gallagher, Akira Ishikawa complained of some soreness but is alright. After being released, Ishikawa did something she hasn't done all season, address the media. However, due to her inability to fully speak English, she said the following in Japanese.

"That was absolutely stupid. Who's idea was it to run an aero package for Texas at Darlington. The two track aren't even remotely similar. The officials are lucky no one was killed. I just hope Carter and Gallagher are alright."

Despite being involved in the wreck, she was ranked 12th when the race was called, giving her two points. She drops to 12th in the driver standing, 27 points behind Kenny Morales.

DSR Carter to return in 2013

DSR Carter will return next season, keeping both the #2 and the #92 for the 2013. However, as expected, Ross will return, but Tanya Carter is expected to go over to Dash Cup racing. Cindy Delamere, an up and coming British open wheel driver is expected to pilot the 92 next season.

"I'm really excited" said Delamere "I feel like this is a new chapter to my racing career. I've never been in a series as high-caliber as Formula Overdrive. I'm just overwhelmed with the news right now!"

Natalie Kendall, who currently pilots a third car for DSR Carter Racing will not return, as she plans to also make the same transition as Tanya Carter, a move to Dash Cup, while Garry Carter, who is currently replacing Tanya after her crash at Darlington, will go back into retirement.

Alexander Vilinov and Zeus Godson to enter the 2013 season?

The two drivers, who have recently been acquired by Terra International Motorsports, are the two drivers to potentially drive in the series come 2013. The move by Lycoia Motors applying to be an engine supplier allowed the manufacturer's factory team to make a move into the series. Greg Woodard, who will be attempting the final race of the season, has stated this would be a prime outlet for Lycoia, as their cars so far have been mechanically sound for many other drivers in other series. Only one example however, would prove other wise. That driver is now in the ATATS racing for his own team.

It isn't clear what sponsors will be on the cars, but rumors are that Lycoia Motors and Nova Satellite Radio will be in contention for the sponsorship spots.

I think you already started the silly season on the last page Razz
