Ok folks i got pit notes done and Steve is working on the round three results now.


The track crew got right to it after racing today to get the surface prepped for Sunday's eliminations.


Tony Puglesi had some material get stuck on a valve face causing a backfire through the manifold. They tore it down and Russ Sutherland is reassembling the head in the trailer.

The track was hot on time this morning kicking of with the old school cars. Gotta love this old Mopar owned by Dave Shultz, he runs in the Nostalgia Super Stock Class.

Rini was able to make the call for first round and laid down a nice 6.06 @ 234 against Dave Merritt who spun the tires hard at the hit of the throttle. Budano made a great 6.13 pass to get the win over Pugliese who shut down early. Dunne slowed to a 6.40 @ 222 but still got the round over Valone.


Number four qualifier Colletta faced off with pat Adams and laid down a 7.28 @ 189 for low Et of the round, just one hundreth quicker than DeMory who took the win over Dave Beeson.

Joe Dunne won Kooks Custom Headers Pro Street on a single after Chris Rini failed to make the final after loosign the scoop in the lights in round three. Dunne ran a nice 6.14 @ 231 MPH.


Bob Kurgan won the CFE Extreme Street over Bill Trovato with an 8.01 @ 162. Trovato was clearly hurt pulling to the line and simply made an appearance for points.
