Friday,  March 30  —  Frogg Ocean Speedway completed its 1/24th scale NASCAR slot car winter series Friday night. The final event of the season is “Froggie 500’ Night and is highlighted with main events for all the drivers. The five members of the Brown Racing Team arrived with new Brown Racing Team shirts.  It was also good to have David Wildermuth also make the  show. The first event of the night was a  150 lap event for the Jr. Division group “B” Drivers. Winning the event was Lydia Dehart with Elania Brown second and Jacob Dehart Third. Because of a low driver turnout the Pro and Amateur drivers present competed together in a 500 lap event using sealed Super 16D motors. The race began with Tony Percival holding a one lap lead at the end of the first segment.

Kent Weaver took control of the race by the end of the second segment with a one lap lead over Tony Percival and three lap lead over third place Bruce Mitchell. At the half way point of the race Kent Weaver held a three lap lead over Tony Percival. The fourth segment saw Tony Percival cut Kent Weaver’s lead to just two laps. During the fifth and sixth segments Kent Weaver increased his lead to ten laps over both Bruce Mitchell and Tony Percival. The race took 32 minutes and 40 seconds to complete the 500 laps with Kent Weaver the winner and Tony Percival second with a great effort just 10 laps behind .  Bruce Mitchell was third 12 laps short of the winner and David Wildermuth was fourth. Tom Varinecz was fifth after having trouble loosing a rear tire during the race and Luke Fogg was sixth. 

The Jr. Division ran a 30 minute main event with Kayla Brown taking an early lead through the first three segments of the race. Kayla Brown while on the  black lane during the fourth segment had tire troubles. This allowed Noah Brown  to move into the lead with  Kayla Brown still was second but Andy Kates was closing in just 1 lap out of second place. Noah Brown held on to his lead during the fifth and sixth segments turning 396 laps for the thirty minute event. Kayla Brown was second ten laps behind the leader. Andy Kates was third with a good run. Erik Brown was fourth followed by Eddie Kates and Jaida Brown. This was tough race on equipment with several race stoppages to fix cars and many track calls. A lot of the cars looked pretty sad by the end of the race but everyone seemed to have a good time. .       

Our 2018 “Awards Night”will be held in the Fall.
