South Florida's Homestead-Miami International Speedway and the Florida Region SCCA will host round six of the Crane Cams V8 StockCar Series September 15 & 16. Homestead, always a challenge for racer's as the combination of high temps and oval and infield sections makes finding the right set up difficult.
In the Porterfield Enterprises V8 GT1 class look for Charles Wicht and his C6 Corvette, Jon "Chevy" Leavy in his Murray's Auto Parts Camaro, Juan Vento in his Corvette and Bobby Kennedy in the Kennedy Kars Camaro challenge for wins. Wicht currently sits in second place in the class points to Simon Gregg.A couple wins on the weekend would put Wicht in contention to challenge Gregg for the championship at the ARRC at Road Atlanta in November.
In the PitBoxes.com V8 SPO class look for Mike Cohen, Mickey Wright and Lee Arnold to wage a battle for the honors. Wright lead the class points in her Competition 101 Ford Fusion.
Charlotte winner Ricky Sanders returns in his RSR Racing Monte Carlo. Sanders a former Nascar Nationwide and Craftsmen Truck Series racer has been on fire this year running strongly at every outing. Points leader Cameron Lawrence back from some fine performances in SCCA Trans Am will be in his familiar Regal Boats Monte Carlo. Billy Gianetti in another RSR Monte Carlo and Chad Jorgensen, South Florida's racing Fire Chief will also challenge for the Howe Racing V8 GTA gold.

Squeak Kennedy and Bosco Logsdon will share duty in the Bemco Corvette for the LG Motorsports V8 GT2 class, taking on Richard Smith in his fast Mazda RX7, Gary Burnette in his Camaro and others.

After Homestead, next up for the group will be the SARRC Invitational Challenge at Roebling Road Raceway on October 6 & 7, followed by the ARRC at Road Atlanta on November 2 & 3 where our champions wil be crowned.

The Crane Cams V8 StockCar Road Racing Series returned to Homestead Miami Speedway on September 15 &16 for races eleven and twelve of the 2012 schedule. Inclement South Florida weather threatened the weekend but lady luck went our way and for the most part we dodged the thunder storms. The rain had stopped just prior to Saturday Morning qualifying session and the group took to a wet but drying track. A number of the racers did just a few recon laps on the slippery surface and decided to take their chances from starting in the back. One that stayed out, and toward the end of the session found some decent grip was Juan Vento in his Mark Meissen built C6 Interstate Battery V8 GT-1 Corvette. Vento cut a quick 1:27 and change on the still drying surface and took the overall and class pole.
Michael Smellie grabbed the LG Motorsports V8 GT2 pole in his tube frame rotary powered RX7 with Lee Arnold taking the top spot in PitBoxes.com V8 SPO in his late model stock car Impala. Howe Racing V8 GTA points leader Cameron Lawrence was on the point in his Regal Boats Impala.

The field left the grid at 11:30 for the Saturday morning race on a dry track. We had an immediate casualty as Cameron Lawrence's Impala failed to answer the bell due to an electrical issue. The rest of the group paired off with Vento and Jon "Chevy" Leavy in his Murray's Auto Parts Camaro leading the way. When the green dropped Vento pulled out to a couple second lead over Leavy while back at the rear, Charles Wicht was on a mission in his Corvette screaming through the field in search of the front running duo. Wicht, second in Porterfield Enterprises V8 GT-1 points to Simon Gregg was looking to close the gap on the points leader. Lee Arnold was running strong in his V8 SPO Monte Carlo behind the front running GT-1's and ahead of second place Rick Bates in hisCompetition 101 Chevy Camaro. Mike Smellie and Richard Smith in their Mazda's were battling for V8 GT-2 honors with the Corvette of Charles Rodholm in third. Smith's challenge ended on lap eight when his racer succumbed to mechanical gremlins. Bill Giannetti had it going all his way in V8 GTA as closest challenger Ricky Sanders fell out on lap four.

Midway through the race, Wicht, running at a pace about one second per lap quicker than Vento and Leavy had tracked them down. Wicht dispatched Leavy and with about five to go caught and passed Vento for the overall lead.

At the checker, Wicht had built a ten second advantage, followed by Vento, Leavy, V8 SPO winner Arnold, Bobby Kennedy in the Bemco V8 GT-1 Camaro and Smellie in the winning V8 GT2 Mazda. Michael Cohen grabbed the second in V8 SPO with Mickey Wright third in another Competition 101 ride. Ray Webb had a solid day in his ex Ryan Newman Dodge Charger and newcomer Charles Rodholm garnered a second in V8 GT-2 in his beautiful C6 Corvette. During his flight to the front, Wicht set a new track record for the GT-1 class with a fine 1:26.001 clocking. "Chevy" Leavy was also in the 26's with a best of 1:26.876.

The V8 racers were greeted by another wet morning on Sunday as dark clouds covered most of South Florida. Qualifiying again went off in the wet with only a handful deciding to brave the elements. It was not looking promising for a dry race and it was sprinkling shortly before the cars took to the grid. Luck was with us once again though, as just before the race, the dark skies parted for a short reprieve and the race went off on a dry track once again. Vento and Leavy started up front as Wicht again chose not to qualify on the wet track. Alex Gonzalez led briefly at the start but was soon caught and passed by a determined Jon Leavy, who really had his Camaro hummin'. Vento was gone after lap one as his Corvette began to overheat. Wicht again started a charge from the rear, but it was not to be as he fell victim to a motor issue. Gonzalez was slowing and was gone after lap 7. Leavy was on a roll and kept charging, pulling out a huge lead on the field and was some 23 seconds ahead at the checker of the second overall finisher, a Daytona Prototype running in SCCA ASR.

Mike Smellie came home second in CC V8SC in his V8 GT-2 racer with Cameron Lawrence third overall and the V8 GTA win. Squeak Kennedy had a fine drive in the Bemco Corvette (V8 GT-2) coming home fifth overall in the group. Bill Giannetti (V8 GTA) and Charles Rodholm (V8 GT-2) were next, with Sanders, Burnette and Wright filling out the top ten.

The Crane Cams V8 Series wishes to thank the Florida Region SCCA for the wonderful job hosting the event, their workers are without doubt some of the most courteous and patient in SCCA Club Racing.

The Series also thanks its' partners for their continued support and they are: Crane Cams, SCCA, Porterfield Enterprises, LG Motorsports, Howe Racing, PitBoxes.com, GoPro, RaceTalkRadio.com, Sunoco, Hoosier, Goodyear, FiveStar, RaceCar Engineering, RacingJunk.com, Roehrig-Enders, GrassRoots Motorsports Magazine, SafeRacer
