Race Report by Drew
Full Throttle Championship took place last weekend with the largest classes being USGT and 17.5 sedan. The Banana Raceway is a smaller 86x34 foot track of CRC black carpet glued to a wood subfloor inside a well-lit and climate-controlled building.

This year’s race was the third installment of this event and attracted drivers from around Texas, LA and OK. The 3-day schedule following a rocket round format allowed for practice all day Friday with 3 qualifiers on Saturday, an LCQ on Sunday followed by AAA mains. The tight layout was installed Thursday night and rewarded drivers who kept up with their setups as the grip transitioned from low on Friday to medium-high grip by Sunday afternoon.

XRAY was very well represented at the race securing 4 TQ’s and 4 wins in the hands of Chris Adams, Marc McGurren, and Andrew Doherty. In the premier modified class XRAY dominated by Adams, Doherty and Steve Breuer securing the top 3 qualifying positions respectively and earning the same top 3 finishing positions as well as representing over 70% of the A main.
