Sacramento Cup – Stockton Fairgrounds Round 7
September 13th, 2016 by Sherry Grantz
From September 2016
Stockton California, July 30th, 2016, average day time temperature 94 degrees with humidity of 17%. It was a good day for racing.
A Street was dominated by Brad Fleig. His first run had a duck, but the scratch was faster than his competition, and he simply knocked more time off with each run. His best was a 48.495.
B Street was won by Mark Heinrichs in his new to him gray-blue C4 Corvette. Mark was able to best Ken Pickett’s 49.966 with a 48.908. I used to race against Mark in CP and am very glad I don’t run the same class with him anymore. Mark could always find a faster line than I ever could, and if you can’t beat them change classes.
What do you get when a German car, Japanese car, and an Italian car show up to an autocross?? Well that would be G Street of course. Chris Estrada in his Toyota Celica was able to beat Karl Hannah’s VW GTI and Bill Tubbs Fiat with only 2 tenths of a lead, but a win is win. Chris has a little bit of an advantage because he has been driving his Celica for as long as I have known him. You can buy all the go fast parts you want, but you can’t buy seat time.
