Its been a while since we raced at the Maine event but each time we return theres more great changes. Everyone in our crew had a super time and when we were done running two cars we had 8 records the tops being  200.927 by our Flathead Ford powered RMR the first ever 200 MPH pass by a roadster bodied race car powered by a Ford Flathead.  We are now tuned up for Speedweek. Setting records and actually receiving the record certs and timing tags before leaving the event is another great part of the Loring experience. No waiting up to two years or more for the stuff LOL
 Thanks to all the LTA crew and especially Tim and Joe they go out of their way to make the experience a pleasure.

Well Greg Adams has a load of pictures from the Loring event he used to post here on this forum in the past but not anymore. Greg is always at LSR events snapping photos Landracing is missing out but I bet Wendy he will contact you.
