    Sunday News

    Good morning all. It's 8:30 am and we're putting everything on hold until a line of storms passes. After the storms do pass, it should clear up quickly (or so we hope). Either way, it'll be a few hours until we get any cars on the track. Will update you later on what's happening.

    Former Super Street 10.5w champion Bryan Markiewicz is here this weekend with his badass WWII-style Camaro. Markiewicz came out and made a strong pass during the last round of qualifying on Saturday, enough to grab the number two spot with a 7.23 at 194 mph. We predict he will be very tough this season.

    Jeff Chandler made the show with his Chevy-powered fox Mustang and laid down an impressive 8.85 at 152, hanging the wheels like a pro. Unfortunately a steering issue caused him to tag the wall during the last round of qualifying, but he assured us he will have the car fixed by the next race in Bowling Green.

    Randall Haynes and car owner Brian Shaw ditched their late model Corvette this season in favor of this wild ’41 Willies you see here. He was able to lay down an evil 6.66 in qualifying on Saturday, enough for the number two spot on the ladder.

    Former Mean Street champ Gabe Large showed up on Saturday after being out of the sport for almost a year and by the look of his unwashed fox body Mustang, he was on quite a thrash to get the car ready for this race. Although he only laid down a high 10-second pass in qualifying, Large will be a contender this year.

    Defending Street Race champ Tim Meagher ran into some problems on Saturday when his engine management system failed, forcing him to replace it before the final round of qualifying. Meagher’s tuner, Job Spetter Jr. was still able to twist the screws on the ‘Stang enough to top the ladder with a 9.16 at 149 mph.

    Famed big-tire racer John Schroeder is competing this weekend in GM Performance Parts NPS and made an impressive 7.56 at 179 mph pass to top the massive 23-car field. Also, keep an eye on the number three qualifier in NPS, Jeff Colletta who was able to throw down 182 mph. If you recall Coelletta, an unknown racer in NPS, won the final event of last season.

    Car Craft Street Race contender Greg Woolard is here with his 10-second early Mustang. The car was able to run a best of 10.24 early in the weekend with a small shot of spray. Although he may be outgunned by a whole slew of mid 9-second late models, he’s going to attempt to squeeze it a bit harder to catch his first opponent off-guard and possibly go a round or two.

    Update (Sunday Noon)

    Storms came through about an hour ago, but the rain has finally stopped. The track is now being dried, with the help of a stiff breeze. No more heavy rain is expected today, but there is some drizzle around. It looks like it will be about an hour at the least before we get going.
