Top Sportsman Sunday
Final qualifying Sunday race #2
Round one Elimination's
Dave Kowalski was the #1 qualifier in both races this weekend, but it did not help him in race #2 as he was defeated by James Rutherford.
Dave went .016 red giving the automatic win to Rutherford. Justin Bond had a .030 light compared to a .010 for Forest Fincher, but he still got the win when Fincher took way to much stripe going 8.095 on his 8.11 dial.
Darren Williams defeated Rob Ashbury when Ashbury went too quick. Dale Phillips got a freebie against Ross Faure when Faure went red.
Joe Loch got a break against Dan Provost despite Loch coasting on the top end. Provost scrubbed 5 mph, but his S-10 still went .05 quicker than it had ever gone.
Zak Clarke had the best run in all the Top Sportsman and Doorslammer elimination's throughout the weekend when he was .003 and ran a 7.474 on his 7.470 dial.
Mike Lucas got a single when Todd Reilly could not stage his car.
Clarke won his round two match-up with Joe Loch despite going too fast.
He dialed a 7.45 and went 7.449. Loch was further under his dial going 6.713 on his 6.75 dial. Mike Lucas had a .012 package and defeated Darren Williams.
Dale Phillips defeated Justin Bond when Bond's car fell off .18 on his 7.05 dial. Phillips had .07 on the tree and was .012 off his 7.49 dial.
James Rutherford got the round two bye and had a .045 package.
Dale Phillips is likely still kicking himself as he was .001 red and ran a 7.529 on his 7.52 dial.
Rutherford was .040 on the tree and was .029 off his 7.56 dial. Mike Lucas may be doing the same in his semi final loss to Zak Clarke. Lucas had .017 on the tree but took .004 too much stripe breaking out with a 7.466 on his 7.47 dial.
Clarke and Saturday finalist James Rutherford would meet up in the final.
The final was not one of those classic double "oh" lights and within a hun. Both drivers had the sun in their eyes just as it was setting.
Rutherford went .037 and Clarke was .048, putting .011 between them. Rutherford with a tenth handicap held onto a lead right through the finish line as Clarke got near the centre of the track with the right tires straddling the edge of the groove.
He had his steering wheel turned 90 degrees trying to steer it back into the groove. He came up .036 short at the finish line.
Saturday Race 1
In Saturday's race they had a five round race with 24 car,s but little delays all day long including a major fluid leak right at the curfew when local driver Kirk Lanz was set to race Rutherford in the final round kept the race from Finishing. Neither driver was too happy, but with the late start Sunday and racing going to 9:00pm it was decided for the drivers to split the winner and runner-up purses. SpeedZone Magazine will buy a second trophy so each driver gets one.

JBS has jumped on board as the low qualifier sponsor bonus for Pro Mod. $500.00 to the #1 qualifier.
Dobbers Choppers will sponsor the #1 qualifier in Outlaw 10.5 $250.00 for the #1 qualifier.
A bit of a scheduling error was pointed out to me by a number of people today and that is the Bracket classes are a double header this year, not a single race like in the past. The entire schedule will be posted on Thursday late afternoon. I not this is late but with the car counts and extra classes there will be big changes. So many racers are double classing as well, so extra time has to be made between classes with racer cross over. What we do know is this event will be the biggest yet.
