    Default Runoffs participants?

    The annual SCCA Runoffs for the national championship are October 16-21 at Sonoma Raceway, just north of San Francisco. I know USA7s member Craig Chima is going and competing in F Production in his Lotus 7. Sports Car magazine even predicts he will take 3rd. I dont know if that's a curse or not. I am pretty sure he's hauling all that way from Ohio (2,500 miles) in the hope of gaining another national championship. Apparently the track is not a big hp/areo venue, so se7ens stand a chance. Who else is going, either as a competitor or spectator?
    Good luck to all se7ens, may the force be with you!

    There is a pretty cool writeup/update of #SB1168 that Craig is taking to the Runoffs on the Simple Sevens site, here:

    It's always heartening to see a 7 up at the front in FP!

    Craig blew a head gasket about 1/2 way through yesterday's race, while running third. The winning Joe Huffaker Midget, and the 2nd place Volvo P1800, were too strong for the Lotus guys. Brian Linn finished 4th in his Lotus Seven, just behind the 3rd place Miata. I watched it live on the SCCA website yesterday and it was a good race for many of the positions, though the top 2 guys just drove away from the rest, averaging a 1-2" a lap advantage. I know Craig, a past FP champion, was disappointed, but he gets an A for effort, and another A for keeping the Lotus 7 legend alive.
