Races Past: September 1st, 1990

Look out history fans, it's last Saturday night all over again, but 17 years ago! Lots of cars were on hand for the first race of the last month of the 1990 season, with five heat races and a "C" main for the figure-eights. Surprisingly, the '87and '88 champion Gary McAlister ended up in the C-main, but opted for the move up, and turned over what must have been a fairly easy victory to J.R.Sundholm. "Psycho" Ron Steltz took the B-main in his red Chevelle, and top spot for the "A" went to the "one-armed bandit" Quentin Boreson and his Dart. F.E.A.R. was back again for a non-point LABOR DAY event,in which 24 cars took place. Dashes went to new driver Lyle Funden, and Richard Pimms in his ever-present '63 Galaxie, a car that was due to be campaigned clear into the new millenium! Mr. Boreson picked up another A-main, with Arnold Freshour taking the "B" in his Nova.

In F.E.A.R. news, elections were to be held on the 11th during the general membership meeting at Alfys in Lynnwood, season championships would be the 15th, and the week-end of the 22nd it was off to South-sound for camping, partying, and racing (yes, in that order)! October 6th was slated for the Stateline, Idaho fall-nationals, with $1000 to win. Here's the second -half point totals as of 9-1-1990, then it's back to 2007! Tom Claibourn, F.E.A.R. historian.
