Default St Croix Memorial Day Weekend Races

St Croix, USVI Race Track. Memorial Day Weekend...
It was one of the largest track days for the year, rivaling even the King of the Streets Races.



Parking stretched from the staging area to within a couple hundred feet of the front gate. A line spilled onto airport road, a sight unseen for a long time here on St Croix, as an island of car enthusiasts came to see cars from Santo Domingo race cars from Cruz.







First up were the program bracket races, where Simon Francis with his Mustang would claim top honors. The breakdown of the bracket races was as follows:

Code:
Francis
v                Francis
Hosford
                                Francis
Soto
v                Soto                        Francis
Bye
                                Henderson
Henderson
v                Henderson
Flemming
                                                                Francis - Winner
Remie
v                Chema
Chema
                                Chema
Boston                                   
v                Wadsworth                 Chema
Wadsworth
In the first round, Bambi Soto with his '74 Corolla powered by a small block Chevy was the quickest qualifier, earning him a bye to the next round. Simon Francis with his supercharged '87 Mustang raced Paul Hosford's '79 Spirit, nicknamed Bandit, and won as the '79 Hosford's Spirit AKA Bandit broke out and ran a faster time than dialed in.

Meanwhile, Romeo Henderson with his '84 Camaro got the win against Berry Flemming's '89 supercharged Mustang due to some mechanical difficulties with Berry's car. Jerrie Remie's '84 small block Mustang lost to Chema's blue '81 Spirit as Remie broke out as well. David Wadsworth's '70 big block Mopar powered Road Runner "Primadona" beat Boston Browne's '90 Chevy.

In the second round, Simon earned a bye run. Soto lost to Romeo and Wadsworth lost to Chema on a red light.

Going into the third round, Chema earned the bye and Simon won against Romeo, pitting him against Chema for the final round. In the last race, Chema tripped the red light leaving the line too early and netting Simon the program win for the night.



But this was only the beginning of the racing that was to go down. The treat of the night was Santo Domingo's cars, their Toyota 2JZ Powered Celica and 2JZ Powered Corolla. Although far from the loudest they were without a doubt fast, the Celica in particular, moving down the track in a brilliant display of power. Their only problem was traction, as the cars were nearly too much for the track.



Leaving the races to the videos, by the end of the night the score was even between St Croix and Santo Domingo, with both being tied at two.

St. Croix - 2 Santo Domingo - 2


Then there were the match races- a Subaru WRX owned by StreetSeener Rey Rey and driven by StreetSeener Ribsdaman proved itself against a nitrous powered BMW 325i. And most impressively, the race between the white Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution (owned by StreetSeener VI-EVO and being driven by the Santo Dominga race team) going head to head with Humphry's Civic multiple times with both sides scoring a win, and with more sure to come.








Indeed more than one score was left unsettled and the races will continue June 13th and June 14th...
