AWRA Fall Brawl 2017-11-18

AWRA Fall Brawl results from Thunder Road raceway in Saluda, Virginia. November 18, 2017.
Charles Eldridge's Dean Stewart built Monte Carlo paced the field as Charles posted his fourth AWRA career win in the AWRA Stock Car race. 

The Monte Carlo previously won at Cordel Model Speedway in Marietta, Georgia in its maiden voyage with Dean Stewart at the helm, and posted a second place finish at The Slot Car Track in Concord, North Carolina in early November. In between, the car also ran at Staunton Miniature Raceway and Hobbies in Staunton, Virginia. Bobby Prout finished second, and Billy Smith rounded out the podium in third. 
Bobby Prout TQ'ed in the Sportsman race, and dodged the dreaded AWRA TQ curse and went on post his first AWRA career win in the Sportsman race. Billy Smith finished second, just ahead of two time race winner Joe Shiflett. 
In Legends action, it was Joe Shiflett leading the field to the checkers ahead of Josh Henderson and Charles Eldridge. This was Joe Shiflett's second career win and his second AWRA Legends win. Josh Henderson was second, and Charles Eldridge finished third, snagging another podium spot.

Team Can-Am started off strong and was leading the first few heats, but then Team Shoreline got it rolling and never looked back, easily getting the win.

For awhile, the other 3 teams had a close battle for 2nd, then Team Quebec suffered a crash that had them losing quite a bit of time for repairs, leaving Team Cloverleaf Gearz and Can-Am to fight it out. But then Can-Am had a motor wire come loose, and later on the rear axle shifted, which meant time in the pits. Cloverleaf Gearz drove a steady race to come home 2nd, with Can-Am 3rd and Quebec in 4th.

Ralph Thorne Racing announces a new line of self-adhesive NASCAR style decals for 1/24th 4" and 4 1/2" stock cars. They could also be used to decorate Dirt Late Model and Hardbody stock cars.

Each sheet includes 2 door numbers, a roof number, 'ethanol' fuel filler, exhaust, wheel stickers, grill and headlight stickers and tail light stickers.

Three styles are available now:

Toyota Camry (numbers 11,18, 19, 20, 55, 77, 78, 83)

Ford Fusion (numbers 2, 6, 16, 17, 21, 22, 43, 60)

Chevrolet SS (numbers 3, 4, 10, 14, 24, 42, 48, 88)

The numbers are somewhat of a generic style because most NASCAR teams have trademarked their number styles.
