Henry's Labor Day Blast 09/03/17
Randolph NJ.
  
Happy Labor Day race fans,
Thirty two racers gathered over a gloomy weekend in NJ at the famed Randolph Raceway for the Thirteenth Annual Labor Day Blast hosted by Henry “the Champ” Harnish.
Thanks Henry for hosting this great event.
And Henry would like to thank the following sponsors, Bob Beers, Hiram Durant, Vic Quinones, Mario Pisano, Tom Stumpf, and 1st time sponsor Tommy Kosch. Please support them as much as possible.
The pits filled quickly on Saturday as racers tried to dial in their superstocks for the ultrafast Randolph Speedway track and Nostalgia class for the original Aurora Tub track. Racers from all over the northeast showed up from Upstate NY, Long Island, Maine, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Maryland and NJ including quite a few first timers to this event.
Sunday morning racers arrived early for final tune ups. As we all know how a car preforms on Saturday is not necessarily means that it will respond the same on Sunday. Some computer gremlins crept up Sunday which delayed the start of the race, but were quickly resolved during driver introductions.
The racers were divided into two groups in order to run both classes at the same time. Once the cars passed pre-tech it was on to racing.
The first heats finished around noon as we awaited that great NY pizza to arrive. After a quick lunch break it was back to the tracks.
As always the racing is close and the day filled with laughter and good times
  
My apologies for the quick exit and not saying a proper farewell. My daughter had a flat on 287. All is well and she made her way back home.
Please join us at the next event and there are quite a few in the next month. Please note the venue change for the really Late Summer Classic.
