FORMULA 600 CHALLENGE: POINTS STANDING AFTER MID-OHIO THIRD ROUND

The F600 Challenge Series is growing in only its second season with points for 15 drivers.
After the third round of the Challenge at Mid-Ohio most of the movement in the points
standings are in the middle as newcomers have made their presence known. 

But the leader, Clint McMahan, has maintained his points lead with two
dominating wins at Mid-Ohio. With only two rounds left - Barber on Aug. 8-10 and Road Atlanta
ARRC on Oct.31 - Nov.2, it will be very hard for anyone to catch Clint. I don't want to hex Clint
but you never know.

Here are the standings:

1 Clint McMahan 144
2 Matt Strand 87
3 Ryan Barth 61
4 Fred Edwards 58
5 Craig Laprade 46
6 Calvin Stewart 36
7 Carl Maier 29
8 George Bugg 27
9 George Fox 23
10 Brian Novak 22
11 Ken Van Horn 21
12 Hunter Brayton 21
13 Tom Edwards 20
14 Brandon Reed 18
15 Ted Simmons 14
16 Chris Ross 0
17 Aaron Ellis 0

               F600 CHALLENGE:  BARBER MOTORSPORTS PARK ROUND #4 RESULTS

For Saturday’s 12 lap race, Clint was on the pole with a 1:32.3, followed by Tom Edwards’ 1:36.5, Hunter Brayton’s (15 year old newcomer to this track) impressive 1:37.9, Fred Edwards in 4th, Ryan Barth (also a newcomer to this track) in 5th, Carl Maier in 6th, Ken Van Horn in 7th, George Bugg in 8th and George Fox in 9th.   However, by race time on Saturday afternoon, it was still raining after a very strong thunderstorm almost blew everyone away.  With 15 minutes to grid, everyone was changing over to rain tires as it looked like the rain would continue.  Fortunately, the race was held up to allow all to change over and make it to the grid.  At the start, almost everyone began to slip and slide around the course.  At the end, Clint was first, followed by Tom Edwards in 2nd, Hunter Brayton in 3rd for his first time on the podium, Ryan Barth in 4th, George Bugg in 5th, Ken Van Horn in 6th, Carl Maier in 7th, George Fox in 8th  and Fred Edwards in 9th.

For Sunday’s 21 lap race, the grid was determined by your best time on the track whether it was Saturday’s qualifying or race, therefore the grid was as follows:

1. Clint McMahan, 2. Tom Edwards, 3. Hunter Brayton (having his best showing in the Series), 4. Fred Edwards, 5. Ryan Barth (improving every track session), 6. Carl Maier, 7. Ken Van Norn, 8. George Bugg and 9. George Fox. 

For the race, the weather was hot and clear and Clint had a challenge by Tom Edwards and Hunter Brayton going into the first turn but Clint quickly pulled away.  Tom Edwards and Hunter Brayton duked it out with each other until the 8th lap when, for a scary moment, Hunter broke his right side steering arm in the brake zone before the left hand turn #1, going straight off into the right side gravel trap, Hunter was fine but disappointed.  By then Clint had backed off a little (1:35’s) and was in cruise control, conserving his gas as a precaution.  Tom Edwards, running 1:36’s, again finished 2nd, Ryan Barth finished 3rd for his first time on the podium, Carl Maier 4th, George Fox 5th, Hunter Brayton 6th, Ken Van Horn 7th, George Bugg 8th and Fred Edwards 9th.

The Formula 600 Challenge moves on to the final double points round at the ARRC on Road Atlanta for the Halloween weekend.

FORMULA 600 CHALLENGE SERIES – 2014 UPDATE

 

Back in November, 2012, we had the very first money race at the ARRC for this series

as a way to draw attention to a brand new pro race series.  The 2013 season had five rounds at Topeka, Watkins Glen, Barber, Mid-Ohio and Road Atlanta for the series finale.  The 2013 series points were very close for the finale between Clint McMahan (96 points) and Matt Strand (88 points).  When Clint had an engine issue just before the green flag and dropped out, Matt had to win in order to capture the series championship and he did win the race after surviving two double yellow re-starts.

For 2014, we have grown some more and have raced at Virginia International Raceway, June Sprints @ Road America, Mid-Ohio Pro race, Barber Motorsports Park SpeedFest and Road Atlanta ARRC again for the double points finale. We have added more sponsors, we will have paid out $25,000 (up from $18,000 in 2013) in race purses/tow funds, about $8,000 (up from $6,000 in 2013) in individual race contingencies will have been awarded and a $5,000 (up from $4,000 in 2013) series points fund will be awarded.  The final checks for the ARRC race purse/tow fund and the 2014 Series Points will be awarded on Saturday night at the ARRC awards dinner at the Chalet.  We also will be announcing our 2015 race schedule with even bigger purses and points fund at that time.  For further information on the F600 Challenge Series please go to – www.theformula600challenge.com 

 

For the series double points finale at the ARRC, the following drivers are expected and are listed in order of their series points standing as of the fourth round at Barber:

 

1          Clint McMahan, Covington, GA     192

2          Matt Strand, Tequesta, FL                87

2          Ryan Barth, Sturgis, MI                      87

4          Fred Edwards, Sturgis, MI                 72

5          Tom Edwards, Sturgis, MI                 56

6          Carl Maier, Grand Prairie, TX           50

7          George Bugg, Toney, AL                    46

7          Craig Laprade, Butler, GA                 46

F600 CHALLENGE: ROAD ATLANTA FINALE 2014

At this year’s final Formula 600 Challenge Race at Road Atlanta we had 10 entries in F600. Starting the field off was Clint McMahan who won the pole with a 1:32.1, 2 seconds slower than the track record. Following behind Clint was 2nd, Hunter Brayton, 3rd, Matt Strand, 4th, Cory McLeod, 5th, Ryan Barth, 6th, Ted Simmons, 7th, George Bugg, 8th, George Fox, 9th, Tom Edwards, 10th, Jack Walbran, 11th, Ken Van Horn and 12th, Carl Maier.

 Clint McMahan had a smooth race. Keeping the lead for the entire race.

Hunter Brayton had never raced at Road Atlanta before but he quickly familiarized himself during the first and second qualifying sessions. After some laps in the 1:35 range, series champ Clint McMahan passed Hunter and Hunter decided he was not going to let him out of his sight.  The result was an astounding 1:33.505 lap placing him second on the grid and just 1.4 seconds off of Clint.  Starting the race in 2nd, Hunter fell back to 4th until he went off track at Turn 1.  A full course double yellow allowed Hunter to catch back up for the re-start in 11th position.  On the restart, Hunter passed one car after another, along the way having a classic duel with Ted Simmons, and then he came up on Cory McLeod and hunted him down until on the final lap he was able to make his final pass for a fine second place finish in class. 

Ryan Barth, started in 5th position but was able to move up to fourth by midway of the first lap and took third coming down the Turn 11 hill on lap 3.  Ryan ran a little behind Clint and Matt Strand who was running a close second.  Those two battling for position helped Ryan get back up to them.  Then the full course double yellow came out and allowed everyone to bunch back up.  For the restart, Clint, Matt and Ryan built a sizable gap from the rest of the pack. Ryan was hanging with them until Matt broke a chain and Ryan drove over-aggressively trying to get around Matt and behind Clint and spun his car at Turn 4. The rest of the field passed and Ryan got back on the track.  Ryan slowly fought his way back up to 3rd place by the end of the race, well deserved.  

George Fox started in 8th and ran a steady race, avoiding several incidents and moved up to finish 4th just ahead of a charging Ted Simmons. 

Ted Simmons started in 6th. He had a spirited race with Hunter Brayton, who had caught back up to Ted after Hunter had gone off at Turn 1, on laps 10 thru 15 when Ted, under pressure from Hunter, spun out at Turn 5 and got back on with Hunter too far out of reach.  For the remaining five laps of the race, Ted drove hard, passing several cars and was closing in on George Fox for 4th place but fell short by less than a car length at the line, finishing 5th.

With a few complications during qualifying, Carl Maier made a last minute decision to start the race. Starting out in the last row Carl had a good start when the flag dropped, moving up three spots by turn 1. When the full course yellow came out Carl was able to get a good jump on the restart and moved up another spot or two. Carl ended up in six place.

Matt Strand who finished in 7th didn’t have the best start for the race. The double yellow restart gave him a good run at Clint until his chain came off.

The race results are as follows:

1.      Clint McMahan

2.      Hunter Brayton

3.      Ryan Barth

4.      George Fox

5.      Ted Simmons

6.      Carl Maier

7.      Matt Strand

8.      George Bugg

9.      Ken Van Horn

10.  Tom Edwards

Overall that was a lot of racing involving a lot of position changing throughout the whole race and a very entertaining run for all.

We will begin announcing the 2015 schedule and all the sponsors of our family very soon.  We are so very grateful for our sponsors who make all this exciting racing possible:

F600 Challenge 2015 Rules

The current SCCA GCR will be the governing set of rules for the Formula 600 cars. However in the event of a running a non-SCCA event the Formula 600 Challenge’s rule changes will take precedence.

Only 600cc motorcycle powered cars meeting the current GCR rule set are eligible for the series.

Points will be awarded based on the total point accumulation for every race during the weekend.   Double race weekend races will be added together to determine the weekend point total. The driver with the most points will be awarded the 24 points available towards the year end points fund.

FORMULA 600 CHALLENGE: NEWS FROM THE 2014 PRI SHOW

We learned a lot while we talked with the many visitors our booth attracted.  Some of the more interesting items of note are as follows:

1.  We gave out 250 handouts during the course of the show, this is far more than we guessed would be needed.
2.  Charlotte Motor Speedway is upgrading their infield portion of their road course from .7 mile long, 25 feet wide to 1.7 miles long and 40 feet wide.  This should make CMS a very attractive Challenge Series venue in the future.
3.  Humpy Wheeler spent some time at our booth and was thinking about having a F600 exhibition at one of his races.
4.  As the series grows rapidly through new drivers and conversions on the eastern side of the states, more and more drivers from the west coast are showing interest in the F600 Challenge coming west.  With all the interest that has been shown there may be a second series running in the western states under The Formula 600 Challenge Series maybe as early as 2016.
5.  The D.B. Wildcat introduction was a big success. From tall to short, thin to wide, everyone fits in the huge cockpit (even Jim Murphy!) proving once and for all that If you have the will to race, the D.B. Wildcat F600 will accommodate the biggest driver.
6.  Carl had a good conversation with the new Formula Lite folks, more to come on that.
7.  With all of the new interest in F600 Challenge Series shown at the PRI show, the 2015 race schedule got changed several times each day during the show.

We are very thankful for our sponsors who have made this series possible:
