What a final day at Doorwarz 7
The Pro mod final had the potential to be very close like past races and the ETs at the finish line showed how closely matched they were. Unfortunately for first time finalist Dal Sangha, he rolled the beams causing a red light. Dal ran a strong 5.94 to 'Gonzi's' 5.98. Mike Gondziola wins Doorwarz 7 for his third win in the seven years of the event. While he did not improve on his nitrous record this weekend, he was very steady running between 5.88 and 5.98 throught qualifying and eliminations. He did have a 6.0 run in qualifying and in one round on sunday, but his team is very good and stayed the course through the event.
In an extremely close final round in Outlaw 10.5, Ken Sihota wins back to back in NW Outlaw 10.5 racing. He won at Seattle a couple weeks ago and extends his point lead. The race was destined to be his as every round of qualifying he was quicker, ending with a N.W. and track record Saturday night (3.98/187). In elimation's, he waded through the competition running just what he needed to advance. The final round though, was a different story as Paja Agatonovic was the quicker car, but Paja was .041 back at the starting line and he could not catch Ken and the Bluebird. It was 4.19 to 4.16.
In the Doorslammer final round, Grant Howell took on fellow Islander Paul Stretch. The two were only separated by just a couple hun. on their dial-ins. Grant Howell got a slight starting line advantage and ran dead on with a '0' for the win, his first of the season. The numbers showed a .013 rt 7.640 (7.64 dial) to a .021 rt 7.678 (7.67 dial) The difference at the stripe was 16/1000ths.
Saturday night final rounds
In BDL Automotive X275, Neil Richards took both ends of the track with a solid 4.56/166 to Mark Jakobs 4.78/159. Richards has been one of the most dominant players in X 275 racing on the West Coast for a number of years. He was the co-winner last year at DW 6 (rainout final with Dan Rodrigue), but it was his first win at Doorwarz. He set the Canadian record in qualifying with the first sub 4.4 run (4.49/167), after an earlier 4.51 in qualifying. In elimination's, he was dominant again, going 4.56 to 4.78.
Jay Graw won Limited 275 after winning 604 Top Street previously at Doorwarz. There were only a few cars contesting the class this year, as more cars are currently being built. He defeated Doug Coppendale in the final.
Darryl Tippe defeated a red lighting Don Murray in the final round of 604 Top Street.
Jake Skocylas won Big Tire /No Time in an uncontested final round. He was supposed to run Rod LeClaire in the final round, but LeClaire broke in his semi final win.
Dan Provost won Top Sportsman Saturday night against dale Philips. Dan had .03 at the tree and was closer to his 6.85 dial in.
June 29, 2019
Friday was over the top for the opening day of qualfying for DW7. Cool temperatures, an awesome track with mega bite and car set on stun.
Dal Sangha, one of the locals who finaly found their groove at SCSN last fall, went right into Friday with a hit heard around the NW. It was the best ever for a driver from BC.
Garrett Richards was solid as usual with two 5.90 runs.
In 10.5, Ken Sihota continued his streak of 4.0 runs at Mission, a BC best 4.027/184. His best MPH as well.
Easily the nicest looking race car in the class (and there are a number of beauties). Eddie Whipple's Mustang is just about perfect.
Jay Syvertsen went into the 4.0's for the first time with a 4.09. Paja Agatonovic, a two time winner of the race, ran a strong 4.07. Five drivers are in the '0's
BDL Automotive x275
Local Daniel Rodrigue and Alberta driver Neil Richards put on quite a show Friday. Richards improved every lap and in the end, he layed down the quickest run in Canadian history, a 4.49/167. Rodrigue dropped a 1/10th from his previous best, a fantastic 4.58/154.9
Stuart Roth ran a career best 4.74. Much more to come.

(coverage posted by SpeedZone Magazine...with sponsorship from Elite Belts.ca)
While everyone out there that is a drag racing fan as well as the racer himself knows that fast dooorcar racing is one of if not THE most exciting type of drag racing out there. The cars are loud, short wheelbased and extremely fast. But with those speeds and designs there are inherent dangers. We will strive to continue to write about and post all the exciting action that is fast door car Drag Racing. And we will post pictures related to all the action on the track, as long as there are not serious injuries to the competitors.
Wild action Saturday at Doorwarz VI
Qualifying is complete for all classes except CW Doorslammer but Saturday was crazy fast and the on track action was wild.
Yvonne Lucas had a scary nitrous explosion right at the hit in the third qualifier, and then with the explosion a fuel line split and fuel ignited. It was way less damaging than it looks in the photos below but still very scary when it comes to fire.
Paja Agatonovic a two time winner of this race, hit the wall in the final qualifier in Outlaw 10.5. His car left real hard but when the second or third nitrous kit came on the car smoked the tires then went right into the other lane and he slid into the right guard rail witht he driver side front quarter panel. The car spun around and banged the rear as well. Not real serious damage, but still enough to keep him out of action.
Top Sportsman does have one more race to run in the second of their double header today (Sunday).
Unfortunately last night's winner in Top Sportsman, Mike Lucas crashed his car past the finish line in his win over James Rutherford.
Here is the final round of Top Sportsman from Saturday night.As you can see here James Rutherford in the right lane had problems of his own as he Probe brought the wheels up high. He broke the wheelie bars on the run and was off the gas early. Mike Lucas cruised to an easy win, but when he got off the gas and applied the brakes he car got real loose crossing the track into James' lane and then fliping over before coming to a stopp500 feet past the finish line. Mike is ok but the Division championship car from 2017 did not fare as well. Mike was in the starting stages of putting together the new 69 Camaro he recently bought but it looks like he will have to speed up that process a bunch.
Here is final qualifying for the three heads up classes
June 29, 2018
A number of solid test hits on Thursday for year six of Doorwarz but also a couple of unfortunate incidents on track. Garrett Richards showed why he is one of the favorites every year at Doorwarz as he ripped off a 5 second lap not far from 250.00. Joe Delehay made a solid 3.9 second half track run clicking it off 3.6 seconds into the run. DeaDER MADE n Branham made two strog low to mid 4 second runs as did Ken Sihota. A number of 275 competitors incuding Neil Richards, Daniel Rodrigue and Wally Friedlander made great runs. But unfortunately for Wally his last run was not a good one as he lost control near half track and the car spun a couple times bumping the wall on both sides of the track and damging all four corners of his sweet Mustang. Justin Gallant turned hard left about 150 feet out after a strong launch and banged the wall pretty hard with his 275 mustang.
Wally Friedlander did not end the day well. After a couple real promising early runs he got loose and tagged both walls.
The weather overall is not great for the weekend but we re hopeful we can get the race off and going. It looks like we will have the largest Outlaw 10.5 field ever as well as 275. 16 Outlaw 10.5 cars are here, and close to 20 275 competitors. 14 Pro Mods will race this weekend as well.
Keith Korecki launched hard to 300 feet.
Rick Di Stefano has all the best parts and the potential to bi a solid five second performer and favorite with is new RH Camaro. The team just needs a few more laps.
Joe Delehay looked strong after a year off. He is pretty pumped!
Garrett Richards had the best lap of the days running in the '5's at 247mph
Neil Richards went 4.6 twice with strong wheels up launches
Jordie Lazicin the JSPowersports Camaro hit the track hard in 10.5
Jason Gagnon made a strong launch in his new Nova
