R1320 is a club of more than 200
members, with at least two things in common, the same employer in
Tucson, AZ and a mutual interest in drag racing and cars. Our
vehicles of choice range from a turbo-charged inline 6-cylinder Falcon
who has had multiple magazine articles published about it, to a brand
new Shelby GT-500 Mustang
soon to be posted....stay tuned!
Last Race of the Year
November 2nd, was R1320's final team event of 2013, ending the 10th year
of the R1320 club! We had three racers who were so close in overall
points by this last race, that any one of them could have been the
overall points winner! Jamal Brewer, Phil Rios and Drew Mapes all had
the opportunity to be able to boast that they were first overall in
points and that it was THEIR car that will grace the back of the 2014
t-shirts, but alas only one could win and that will be revealed soon....
We really had a good turn out for this final race,
probably due to the excellent weather (aside from a good amount of wind
in the morning), and the fact that we scheduled well before
Thanksgiving. Many racer's supporters were out for the day, Chelle
Rios, Tim Werch's wife and parents, and Patrick Breckenridge, who along
with Jamal Brewer functioned as pit crew and cheering section for his
wife Shelby and friend Angie "Tweety" Brown. Robin Weissman drove her
cool pale turquoise colored T-Bird out in support of her husband Willy,
who was running his '08 Shelby GT500. Jody Jenson, wife of racer
Clayton, was kind enough to be sure all the racers were well fed by
making yummy tacos for the group, thanks Jody! And Kevin Hartnett's
wife ?? brought out fried chicken as well, so talk about a feast!
Needless to say, there was hardly a stitch of food left.
Though the gates opened at 8:00A we didn't make our
first trial run until about quarter after 10A. We had three trial runs
prior to our first elimination round which began around 2:30P and we
made the final round by about 4:30P.
