RACE RESULTS FOR SATURDAY AUGUST 19, 2017 - POINTS RACE #13

MAX'S AUTOMOTIVE JR DRAGSTER - SUMMIT JDRL CHALLENGE: If you want to win one of those Wally trophys, you are going to have to step it up. John Michael Stevens did just that to claim the Big W after chasing one for, oh, about 10 years. The final was going to be a shootout anyway, with John Michael (3rd place 2016) on one side and 2016 track champion Austin Green on the other. JM went Boom, hit the tree with a near perfect .0009 reaction time and covered the stripe 8.17 over an 8.15 dial for a total .021 package. Austin had a great .019 light and finished 7.93 over a 7.90 dial. Not much you can do when you're already .020 behind at the get-go.
TOM THORP TRANSPORTS SUPER PRO (BOX): Robert Broom had to shoo away all the No Box racers rubbing on his car for good luck after Robert used his foot to stomp out a big win in Super Pro. OK, so Courtland Carter went red on his side to give it up early but you have to hear Robert's numbers any way. .004 light, 7.37 dial, dead on 7.3777. That's about a .012 package, swapping feet. Really, no box in that Camaro.
LONGMIRE PLUMBING NO-BOX/SPORTSMAN: Freddy Hlllin got the Bye run of the night, going .004 in the semis to win a pass to the final in No Box. Freddy's only problem was that Benny Gossett was in the other lane in the final. Benny could have painted a 5.55 dial on the car with house paint, having run dead on something 4 in a row. Freddy got away with a better .034 light against Benny's .041. At the finish, Benny took the win dead on 5.558 - again! - and Freddy was one over 6.596 to a 6.58. Want one more killer number? Benny's Margin Of Victory was only .0006! You never want to take too much stripe. 6 ten-thousanths is about right.
MAX'S KAWSAKI MOTORCYCLE: Don Hrometz (right) got the win in Motorcycle, thanks to Frankie Berry going big red on the tree. Could have been a race as Don was .003 on the tree and 6.03 under a 6.06. Frankie finished 6.51 over a 6.26, red bike but still a red light.
BIG COUNTRY STREET ELIMINATOR: Street final was yet another "he's red, I win" final round. This time is was Doug New going -.007 pink to hand the win over to track champ Robby Bowermaster.
