The TTS class is off and running after our first race at the GS Nationals this September. After a rainy Wednesday and Thursday morning, we finally got some test and tune passes in Thursday afternoon and qualifying passes Friday and Saturday morning.

3. Greg Sims~Jasper AL~1987 GN~Car 7065~weight 3700~11.096 @ 121.64
*Greg developed engine noise and decided to play it safe and diagnose at a later date.
4. Steve Branger~South Milwaukee WI~1987 Black Turbo T~Car 0130~weight 3710~13.179 @ 90.92
*Steve also developed engine noise and did not make it to eliminations.
5. Dave Bandy~Bardstown KY~1987 silver Turbo T~weight 3750
*Dave had brake problems and did not complete a qualifying pass.

Final eliminations paired Missy Thompson and David Barclay:

Missy~reaction .450~10.843 @ 125.99
David got Missy off the line and she just could not run him down, giving David the win by .0643

Congratulations to our first TTS winner, David Barclay!

If the WINNER and RUNNER-UP can E-Mail me their mailing info, I can send out the gift certificates that we posted/offered for the class. Things got put together kinda late & I didn't have them at the Nat's to hand out. Hoping to do the same or more for support next year!
Thank you Paul, your generosity to the turbo Buick community is most appreciated. Thanks again for making excellent products to enhance our cars.
