END OF 2017
Saturday Nov 18th Pro-Stick Cancelled due to Impending Weather Forecast.
Saturday — Nov. 4th
This was our 23rd annual Stock / Super Stock race presented by Mike and Wendy Carr of the Tri-State Stock / Super Stock Association. First the weather was great for day one, temps in the low 50’s, corrected altitude barely at sea level made everybody real fast. There 30 Stock / Super Stockers in round one and in the finals Carroll Morris in his Mustang won out over Danny Henderson in his max wedge 63 Dodge. Greg Orris took third in his pure stock GTO. We also ran a Footbrake race with Jeremey Manford taking the win over Mike Rodgers, Scott Vaughn was third. Super was contested also with Cliff Peddicord over Mark Gray in the final, Darlene Staub took third spot. We also had test and tune cars with us making numerous passes. The Stock / Super Stock racers put on a show, many towering, long wheel stands were the order of the day. Despite a gloomy weather forecast we still had a decent turnout for day one.
Sunday — Nov. 5th
Now the weather turned on us. Rain moved in overnite and fog and drizzle persisted all morning / afternoon long forcing us to cancel the days racing. This is the 19th rain out for this year, it is getting very old now. We appreciate all that raced with on Saturday, the weather forecasts early in the week had everything from a total wash out to decent weather for us, no doubt this hurt the turn out.

Everybody was pretty fast too, cars got faster all day with many making their best passes on the last runs of the day. Temps were in the mid 60’s with a strong crosswind all day long. A lot of race fans hung out with us also, just a real good Test & Tune day overall.
Sunday — Oct. 29th

Saturday — Oct. 21st
The last Street Nite of the 2017 race season was a good one. First off the weather was great, temps to the mid 70’s as we started racing at 2:30 PM. We had a great turnout too, 160 cars racing. Md. Performance Center Real Street had 13 entries and many were real fast. Five cars were in 5.0 range with Steve Kent and Daylan Palmer at a super quick 5.03 to lead the field. Kent and Palmer really stepped it up in the semis, both ran 4.98 and did square off in the final. Steve Kent lit the tires and Daylan Palmer was long gone with low ET of year and fastest MPH too with 4.96 @141.16 mph to take the win. Semi racers were John Staats and Justin Bowmaker. A big thanks to Larry Miller of BNL Inc for putting additional money, $1,500.00 to the Real Street racers, also Md. Performance Center has done a great job all year of bringing great heads up racing on our Street Nite events. Now the Quick 16, another record low ET bump spot, this time it took a 5.28 to make the field, 11 cars were quicker than 5.10, 8 were in the 4’s, hard to make this field now. John Moton and Ken Colton, team members, made the finals, John Moton for the win, semi racers were Mitch Willingham and Cory Carper. Our 6.50 Index class is growing, a record 16 car field made round one. William Woodward took the win over Tom Bard. This is fun side by side racing, hope it keeps gaining racers. In Pro it was Chester Shoemaker over Bill Smith in a real close final. Limited Street was won by Tammy Gray over Darius Wenger. Drive In Street was won by Larry Price over Scott Sease. The Bike final had Brian Moore over George Stanley. We did have one on track incident as Darryl Merryman crossed the centerline and hit wall in his Mustang Real Street entry, Darryl was unhurt but the car did have r/f damage. The car held up well and our staff got down to the car immediately to assist Darryl. We had a nice turnout of racers and race fins for this race, we finished up at 9:15 PM.
Sunday — Oct. 22nd
This was a Summit ET points race, all contested in the 1/8 mile and a King of the Track event too. The Outlaw Pontiac Drag Racing Series were here today with 28 entries. It was their last points race of the year with three drivers shooting for their points championship. Doug Chell won over Dennis Kincaid in the final. Chuck Hutzler ended up the points champ over a real close Jason Rogers. We always say this but as always it is a pleasure to work with all those involved in the Outlaw Pontiac Drag Series, their staff and racers. Super Pro had 50 cars, Ronnie Horwath over George Hoff. Pro had Janet Baden over Jaime Talbert. Street was won by Brady Warner, his first win this year, over Dave Toms. Bike had George Stanley over Dale Hamilton. Jr. Street had Travis Hill over Jo Jo Mallow. Trophy class was won by Harli Bergeau winning out over Nathan Jacobson.

Thirteen year old Casey Jenkins driving in Tammy Gray’s car made all the necessary runs for her Junior Street license. The passes were in high 9’s @78 mph, well done! The weather was over the top for this race too, mostly sunny and temps again the mid 70’s, Over 160 cars and bikes raced with us today. We finished up about 6:45 PM.
Four more weekends of racing, all good ones, hard to believe we are close to the end of the season already! On Saturday, Test & Tune and Md. True Street Challenge, on Sunday our annual Diesel truck race starting at 11:30 am! See you this weekend at Mason Dixon Dragway!
Wednesday — Oct. 11th — Day 1
This was to be day one of the 2017 SBRA Bracket Finals but a persistent all day rain never let us get underway.
Thursday — Oct. 12th — Day 2
Today we started at noon for our Gamblers Race with nearly 250 entries. Everyone got one time shot and then we went to eliminations. In Junior Dragsters Ryan McFadden won over Sammie Miller in the finals. Bike had Billy Bair taking the win over Paul James Sr. Footbrake, the biggest class had Ben Garnett taking the win over Mark Harbaugh. The Super class was won by Mark Gray driving Brad Doss’ Dodge Dart over Chuck Wishard. Good racing all day, no real incidents, minimal breakage and great track conditions all day made for a fun first day of racing.
Friday — Oct. 13th — Day 3
Now we had a crowd! Over 370 cars were on hand for the $5,000.00 to winner take all Hi-Roller races for Super and Footbrake and our second big Gamblers Race. The two Hi-Roller 64 car fields were filled in minutes as everyone wanted to get in on the action. In Foot Brake Troy Gerhart took the win over Mark Harbaugh. Super had Phil Truitt over Ben Parks. The Gamblers races were loaded with entries, over 150 Foot brake cars and 130 Super cars. In Junior Dragster Gavin Shoemaker won over Jaiman Dietz. Bike had Dylan Wood over Kevin Hamilton. Foot Brake had Steve Lenig over Darryl Beauchamp. Lastly in Super it was W R Ketterman over Wayne Patton. Terrific nearly non stop action from 10 am til 11:45 PM. We were lucky too, just as we finished, light mist /dew moved in.
Saturday — Oct 14th — Day 4
This was our Race of Champions race and another Gamblers Race. We started at 10 am, got the time runs in for our Race of Champions and then got round one underway at 10:45 am. In Junior dragster, Sammie Miller won over Cobi Toliver. Bike had Kevin Hamilton winning over Taylor Dunham. In Foot Brake Kodi Mariner won over Mark Harbaugh. Super was won by Joey Harrison in his wife Brittany’s great race car over Phil Truitt. Now for the Gamblers race, the field was huge, nearly 400 cars. Just into round five at about 11 PM we had a big finish line oil down, it was going take a long cleanup and at that point it was prudent to call it a day and split money to those still in the race and make round money payouts also, full payout was made as advertised.
Sunday — Oct 15th — Day 5 and final day
We finally got some sunshine, this was the main event, no entry fee, open only to those that qualified for their home tracks. We started right on time with the Junior Dragsters at 9 am. Thirty two cars entered. In the final we had Joshua Sisk against Morgan Larkin, Josh took the win. That’s right, these two were in the final last year where Morgan was the winner, now they are one and one, is there are re-match in 2018? At 11:30 am the big cars and and bikes took the track for round one. Bike had 39 entries Ted Bosserman won over Billy Bair. Foot Brake with 134 entries had Nick Bowman winning over Bob Klock. And in Super 106 cars entered, in a door car final it was Scottie Keys winning over Phil Truitt. Even with 313 entries and nearly 100% buybacks in round one, we still finished up at 6:15 PM. What a great race!
Thoughts on this 2017 SBRA Bracket Finals event……..The weather did get us on day one but we were very lucky to get the other days in, everything on the east side of the mountain was misty / drizzly right up to Sunday. No racing would have happened had we had that weather! All the racing we did was timely, we started dead on time each and every day. Minimal on track incidents, cars overall stayed together save for the oil down on Saturday. The track plainly was excellent, great track prep / maintenance all four days. Cars were deadly consistent run after run. We made approx. 7,000 passes down the track in the four days. Huge fields of cars and bikes ran the Gamblers races with nearly 100% buy backs each race. We had great cooperation from all the racers and team members from all the tracks. Kelli Fleming worked the computer on Thursday and Friday for the afternoon portion of the day til Shannon and Maria arrived, she did a great job too. It was good to see the many track owners with us watching their racers battle it out for the combined purse of over $68,000.00. How about some great performances from the racers. Phil Truitt won Hi-Rollers Super and two runnerup finishes. Mark Harbuagh had three runnerups. Ben Parks had two runnerups. Kevin Hamilton had a win and runner up. How about Mark Gray recording two .000 lights in a row then a .001 on the Thursday Gamblers race, he won it also. A big congrats to team US 13 winning the points battle, Mason Dixon took second followed by Eastside, Beaver Springs, Keystone and Colonial Beach. The 2017 SBRA Bracket Finals is in the books, what a great race, and yes, it’ll even be better in 2018!
I’d like to personally thank Courtney Suders for her announcing help especially covering the Saturday afternoon / night portion of the event and her work on other days as well, she always does a terrific job too.
This coming weekend, Street Nite on Saturday and a points race and Outlaw Pontiacs on Sunday, see you at Mason Dixon Dragway this weekend!
Saturday — Sept. 30th
Where do we start? All right, Md. Performance Center Real Street had 12 cars entered with John Staats as the low qualifier with a 5.12 @ 139 mph. It got better as Jon Staats lined it up in the final with Mike Berry who ran his best run, a quick 5.05 to take the win. Russ Martin was the third place racer. These three were the fastest cars out there, John Staats ran low ET with a 5.03, Mike Berry ran a 5.05 in the final and Russ Martin ran 5.07 all at nearly 140 mph. Real Street comes back again on Street Nite on Oct. 21st. Quick 16 had the fastest bump ever by nearly 2 tenths of a second. 33 cars ran, Darlene Staub was on the bump with a 5.37! Eight cars ran in the fours, what a show. In the semis, three of the cars were in the fours and Bill Stevens was the “slow” car at a 5.06.

Great job by all, great track prep / maintenance, the staff kept the show moving quickly, great food at our foodstand, lots of hot chocolate and coffee served and a bunch of fall wearing apparel sold at Cheryl’s Shirt Shack.

Sunday — Sept. 24th
After a weekend off from the Bracket Finals we were back on Sunday with a very well attended Test & Tune day. The weather was no issue today, sunny and hot, topped out at 90 degrees later in the day. We had 140 cars and bikes making many runs for the five hour time run session. A. J. Heiner licensed in his Junior Dragster making all the needed runs, he drove very well and the car also worked like it should, all the full runs were nearly the same ET. Great job A. J.! Meagan Bodmer licensed in husband Scotty’ dragster running a 7.50 and a 7.49 @ 177 mph on the last two runs, great passes, Megan previously was licensed but family obligations kept her away from racing awhile but now she is ready to go again, well done. Good to see Russell Barefoot out making several near 10 flat passes and the Fords, Bob and Dianne out making low 11 second runs in their Camaro. Several Real Street cars ran today also, Daylin Palmer ran quick but as a No Time car. Overall a real good day, we finished up at 5 PM.
This weekend is a one day race deal. On Sat. Sept. 30th it is another Street Nite race. Md Performance Center Real Street, Quick 16, 6.50 Index, Pro, Limited Street and Drive-In Street all being contested, first qualifier shot at 2:30 PM. Don’t miss this one!

Saturday — Sept 9
The Fall Brawl / Street Outlaw event was a huge success. The weather was perfect, 70 degrees and mostly sunny skies greeted our racers and race fans. We started at 4:30 PM sharp with test hits for our Big Tire and Small Tire cars. Just about everyone went fast in the first session, Kayla Morton in her Mustang and “Boosted GT” Chris Hamilton in his yellow Mustang laid down real fast passes right off the trailer. These two were real pros from their performance on the track to how they interacted with our race fans that visited with them throughout the entire event. Kayla matched up with Lin Bowie first and made another rocket fast pass to win as Lin’s car pulled to the right at the launch. Later she ran Gary Walker’s hemi powered Nova. Kayla won it by .07, a close side by side run. “Boosted GT” was matched up with Steve Kent in his Mustang. At the hit Boosted car left a bit flat and Steve was long gone to take the win. Second match up was to be with Cary Daniels but he lost an engine after a real strong pass earlier and Russ Martin filled in to run Boosted. This time “Boosted GT” made another very strong pass to take the win. We ran a bunch of other classes also to make a big non stop racing show. In the Quick 16 $1,000.00 to win class John Richmond won over Joey Harrison. Marty Flegal took the win over Chris Crawford in the $2,500.00 to win Footbrake class. The Bikes had a $2,500.00 to win class also with Roland Powell won over James Farmer. Junior Dragster heads up no time 330 ft race was won by Thomas Oates over Landon Palmer.

In DOT class Richie Stine won over Willie Fair. 5.90 Index was won by Frank Peacock over Sonny Nichols. The 6.40 Index group had Shane Stymest over Matt Bowie. Pro Nostalgia was won by Jerry Shaffer over Scott Klinger. This was a really good event, cooperation from racers and race fans from start to finish. Dynamite track prep / maintenance had everyone flying. The MASO group did a fine job of keeping their group performing well, a big thanks to Dave McMeans for doing his usual excellent announcing too. We should also mention the “Feedbag Catering” group and our foodstand staff for doing a great job with providing excellent food and drinks to everyone. Again a real good event, we finished up about 11:20 PM.
Sunday — Sept 10th
This was an SBRA event with another nice day, temps in the high 60’s and a light breeze. We started with the Junior Dragsters at 9:30 am with 21 entries.

Now we’re good. It started out cloudy with a track that was wet and pushed the start time back an hour. The Junior Dragsters took the track first with 24 entries with points leader Sammie Miller getting the win over Eric Bowles, Logan Simpkins took third spot. The featured “show” part of the weekend was Eric Kitchen’s Pro Stick class, 55 cars entered and in the final Charles Shaffer in his 66 Plymouth Fury beat Dave Slusher in his Camaro with Cody Clites and Tim Riggleman as the semi racers. Great show! Outlaw Pontiacs were with us today with 23 entries. Lester Holtzapple took the win in the six round race over Carl Hazenstab. Lester was deadly on the tree in every round in my 68 Firebird, great driving. This is his third win of the year, the other two are in Pro. Super had 82 cars with Tristan Simpkins over Al Crawford, this class paid $2,000.00 to win. Great racing in this 8 round race. Footbrake had 90 entries and in the end Mark Harbaugh won again, this time over Brian Lind. Mark had a win and a runner up last weekend and he is way out in front in total track points, nice work Mark. Bike had 32 entries Brian Canoles over Dave Clinedinst in the final to win the first place $1,000.00 money. We were to have the Tall in the Saddle band perform at the end of the race day but because of the late finish time we had them play at 9:00 PM til 10:30 PM down in the tech area, they did a great job as always. What a great race, we had 310 competitors racing today.
Monday Labor Day — Sept 4th

Saturday — Aug. 26th
This was a Summit ET series race with zero weather issues. We started with the Junior Dragsters at 2 PM with Jo Jo Mallow getting the win over Noah Lind in the final, Logan Simpkins took third place. Twenty one drivers competed in this class today. At 4 PM the big cars took the track. The Outlaw Pontiac gang was with us today bringing 20 cars to battle it out with Rodney Eichelberger winning over Steve Dress, points leader Jeff Raff took third place.

Of note, in round two, Mark Decker in his dragster had a major engine failure when front of the crankshaft let go at about the 330 ft. mark. He quickly pulled over before the 1/8 mile finish line and minimized what could have been a very long track clean up / down time situation. We always hate to see anyone lose and engine but great sportsmanship / driving skill was shown by Mark for sure. Hope he and Jennifer can get their dragster back on the track very soon. We did have 168 cars entered today. We finished up at 11:10 PM.
Sunday — Aug. 27th
We started the “Megan Daymude Fueling Her Dream” $5,000.00 to win Super Pro race at 11:30 am with 70 cars entered. In an eight round race it was John Dustin in his Ford powered dragster winning over Allen Chamberlin in his low 5 second Camaro. The semi racers were Alan Glatt and Jody Sneckenberger. We allowed buy backs in first or second round, but not both, for our racers and most took advantage it. A lot of close racing with several races decided by less than 2 inches, Ronnie Horwath also registered a perfect run in round three, a dead on 5.650 and a perfect.000 light. Great driving everyone. Foot brake had a good turn out of 56 cars in the final Bob Bair won over Mark Harbaugh who won on Saturday. A big win for Bob and nearly a “double” for Mark.

We got round one in the books and then, you guessed right again, the heavy rains and a lot of lightening moved in about 7:45 PM. It lasted about an hour, no way to dry things out like last week and we had to stop for the night. All round one winners got rain checks for another day. This column sounds more like a Weather Channel report than a race result story!
Sunday — Aug. 20th
This was the 20th Mid Atlantic Ford meet. This was well a attended event, lots of show cars, many vendors, 120 race cars and a very good turn out of race fans. Weather, not any issue for this race, low 80’s and less humidity than of late, a nice day for once. Seven classes were contested, we got the racing underway way at 11:30 am as scheduled. Some notes on the racing, how about Kathy Gerhart winning Trophy, in a five round race she drove real well and in the final she was to face John Blankenship in his 64 Ford Thunderbolt tribute car but he had starting issues and couldn’t make the final. This is Kathy’s first win, she has had two recent runner up finishes of late, great job. How about John Blankenship, he never does more than Test & Tune and finally went class racing and getting the second place trophy, well done. Travis Hill beat Chris Kelican in the Pro final. Good racing all day long with seven different classes contested. We finished up at 5:00 PM.

Friday — Aug 11th
Same old story, light rain moved in an hour before the gates were to open and persisted til about 7:00 PM. Once again we had to cancel out for the evening.
Saturday — Aug 12th
We got started at 4 PM with the threat of storms that might arrive in the early evening. The car count was down no doubt due mostly to such a dreary weather forecast. This was a Summit ET series event with no Junior Dragsters, many were still at the Division One Junior Dragster ET finals. We got everyone their two time runs and then round one began. The radar showed a big line of heavy rain moving at us a bit quicker than predicted and we went ahead and got round one underway. We got Trophy, Street and Pro down the track and then heavy rain rolled in, a couple of inches fell in a half our and light rain continued for another half houror so. Though everything was soaked and water everywhere the decision was made to try dry the the track and race. The drying process was maybe halfway complete and it rained again and once more we were determined to race and by 8 PM we went drag racing! We shortened up everything to 1/8 mile racing and we were underway. In Trophy, Wayne Donoho took the win over Kathy Gerhart, she’s getting closer to a win all the time now. Street had Rick Wenger wiinning over Kelli Fleming, Lukas Birks was third. Pro had Lester Holtzapple getting his second win this year over the very tough Mark Harbaugh, Greg Ecker and Dicky Bodmer were the semi racers. Super had Mike Daymude in his dragster over Shawn Barrett in the final with 4.731 on a 4.73 dial to take the win, Chuck Wishard took third place. Mike was really in the zone, great lights and the car is deadly, in seven runs, the 60 ft. times were from 1.069 to 1.072, hard man and car to beat. Bike had Gene Belt winning over Dave Clinedinst with Kevin Hamilton and Brain Canoles the semi racers. Of note, on this race we fought the weather and Mason Dixon took the win this time, what a fight though, the entire staff spent about two hours doing track drying and re-prepping the track, the last hour or so we fought fog down in the shut down area that at times crept all the way to the scoreboards, we had Scott on top end making sure the track was clear after each pair of cars went down the track. We finished up at 10:15 PM.
Sunday — Aug13th
This was a make up SBRA points race. We started with the Junior Dragsters at 9 am with Emma Henry getting the big win over Logan Simpkins, Brett Holston from Delaware took third place. Next was something special, we did our time runs and then we got ready for round one. First it was Bill Smith with the invocation and then Devin Belluomini who is in the Air Force stationed in Washington D.C. went out to the starting line with all our racers surrounding him as he made a presentation to starting line staff member Walt Sewell. Devin had done some research on Walt as he had served in the Air Force from 1974 to 1978 and was due a distinguished service medal that was not awarded to him back in the ’70s. Well he finally got it, this caught Walt off guard big time, very emotional for all. What a way to start a race, congratulations Walt!! Forty seven Super cars racing, in the final Mike Daymude tried to make it two in a row but Steve Morgret

This was a well attended Test & Tune event plus the qualifier race for the “Fall Brawl Shoot Out” race on Sept. 9th featuring Street Outlaw racers Kayla Morton and Boosted GT Chris Hamilton. In the big tire class it was Gary Walker and Lin Bowie who qualified to race Kayla Morton and in the small tire class Harold Horton and Cary Daniels qualified to run against “Boosted GT” Chris Hamilton. I wish could tell you how fast these cars ran but we can tell you that these four ran hard and straight as did everyone else making passes. We were going run them four times each but just as before the last passes were to go, you guessed it….it rained again. We knew the rain was coming, loads of lightning in the air but we did get almost the whole program in despite the weather turning nasty on us. Once again the track was dynamite, all the cars launched hard and stayed hooked up all the way down track, great job of track prep / maintenance as always. We finished up a 9:30 PM.

In the final Steve had to run Harold Horton. In the final, Steve Kent sadly had trouble at the line as his car left way early giving the win to Harold Horton who went 5.10.

This was a Test & Tune event on a warm and sticky night. 93 cars and bikes raced with us though we did have a brief rain delay the night went well. Lin Bowie and Ronnie Proctor were with us making test passes getting ready for our Street Outlaw Kye Kelley’s visit for the next day. Both drivers made nice runs. We finished up about 10 PM.
Saturday — July 1st
First off when I arrived at the track at 11:30 am we were already seeing many race fans arriving early for the racing not scheduled to begin til 4:30 PM. Luckily the rain showers predicted to hit us at around 2 PM arrived on time, though briefly heavy, they cleared out fast and between the track staff and mother nature the track was dry and race ready so we could start on time. Lin Bowie and Ronnie Proctor were at the track very early with Kye Kelley making the trip from his previous nights race at US 13 in Delaware at about 1:30 PM. All three had their race cars and rigs over in lane #7 of the staging lanes and were out greeting the many race fans and selling real nice shirts also. At 4:30 the 12 Maryland Performance Center Real Street cars took the track in front of a packed house for their qualifier runs and we were underway! Now about our match race cars, all three made test hits, all three went smooth and fast, hooking hard and going right down the middle of their lanes. At 6:30 Lin Bowie and Kye Kelley lined it up and it was a green light start with Kye Kelley taking the win. At 7:30 PM it was Ronnie Proctor’s turn and what a race. Both cars left hard and immediately Ronnie’s win light came on as Kye Kelley went red. Right at the end of the night Lin Bowie and Ronnie Proctor ran each other with Ronnie Proctor winning in a real close race. To tell you how well matched all three cars were, the fastest to slowest run by all three cars was .07 of a second. All the sixty foot times for each car was nearly the same on each pass. A testament to the drivers skill, the well prepped and properly tuned cars AND to the dynamite race track preparation from the Mason Dixon staff and especially to Jake Landes and Bub Casto who do the bulk of this work. Great show! How about our cars….to make the show an action packed event we had four other classes and some grudge racing too. Md. Performance Center Real Street, a heads up, no break out small tire with one power adder allowed class were a big part of the show. Twelve cars entered Richie Stine winning over Russ Martin in a close final, 5.15 to a 5.18. Mike Barry took third. Richie ran a pair of 5.15s in the warm humid air, fast for the conditions. Next up our Quick 16, handicap racing group had Corey Carper winning over Chuck Wishard, George Forster and Frank Howell the semi racers. The Hi-Roller $5,000.00 to win race with 16 racers had Joe Wetzel over Brandon Lowe, Joey Harrison and Mark Decker were the semifinalists. We also gave our Junior Dragsters a 7.90 pro tree index class with $1,000.00 to the winner. Jo Jo Mallow took the win over Landon Palmer who received $250.00. Lacy Dustin and Sammie Miller took the semi spots. We did some grudge racing with both ATI Performance Products cars on the track, JC Beattie and Vince Fourcade driving, Brian Weddle, Michelle Devilbiss, Jason Smith, Corey Evans and Joe Hagans, all were fast. We finished out a 9:30 PM.
Thoughts on this event. The three featured cars and their drivers worked like the pros they are, great job. Proud of all of you. The flow of the event was great, everything ran on time. Great racing, everybody fast. Our four classes had great racing action with real good money paid out to racers also. Our race fans stayed out of the restricted areas but were up close to see all the action, we thank all of you that were here as race fans or competitors. Thanks to Feedbag Catering group for helping with excellent food all day long. Great job to Mason Dixon staff for putting on and then running the entire event smoothly. This is two weeks in a row that we have run major events at Mason Dixon! Thanks everyone for being part of this event. Like this type of event? ….. Boosted GT and Kayla Morton Sept. 9th!

This car had been badly damaged in a garage fire eight years ago, Dale and friends put this car back together over the last several years, it now sports a supercharger, it sounded awesome when fired up.

Outlaw Pontiacs were out in force with 26 entries and Mike Clay got the win in his 62 Catalina over Chris Kellican in his 8 second 62 Catalina, Jeff Raff took third. 11 409 Chevys ran with Bob Walker Jr. In his Loving Chevrolet 63 Impala getting the win over John Medaglia’s 62 Impala 409.

We had a great turnout for our Test & Tune event Friday evening with over 150 cars and bikes making passes til 10 PM. The weather was good also, no rain. Lin Bowie had his blower Camaro out to make make some test no time passes, car ran hard and straight, overall a good night.
Saturday — May 27th
We were nearly three hours late getting started due to light rain showers and track drying efforts. Finally we got the Junior Dragsters underway. Twenty five entries and we got through the time runs but then the light rains arrived. Five different times the track staff drug out the sweepers, blowers and dragging equipment to fight the damp / wet track but each time some headway was being made it would again lay down more light rains showers. By 4:30 PM it became apparent we wouldn’t be able to race anymore and we called it a day.
Sunday — May 28th
Again we got a late start due to a still drying track, racing for the Juniors got underway about noon. Twenty nine entries and we got to the finals with Kaylee Henry to meet Logan Simpkins. We also started with the big cars, they were going to get one time run and go. Everyone got the one time run and we started with round one, we completed Trophy and just finished round one of the 91 car Footbrake class when, you guessed, light rain moved in. Again great effort taken by the Mason Dixon staff to dry the track but no luck as more showers moved in, finally at 5:30 we had to call it a day.
Monday, Memorial Day — May 29th
Finally about 8:30 am the sun broke through and we finally got a good dry and warm day to race! We had an hour delay to get the track dry and the Junior Dragsters raced first, 30 cars competed. We finished Sundays final first Kaylee Henry won over Logan Simpkins, Sammie Miller was third. Christopher Burch won out over Noah Lind with Josh Sisk and Charlotte Mallow the semi racers. Now the big cars. Footbrake had a big turnout, over 70 cars Steve Dustion won over Brad Doss, Ed Talbert and Jamie Talbert were the semi racers. Super had dragster killer Brandon Lowe over redlighting Mark Decker, Chuck Wishard was third. By the way we had a perfect run in round three, Ronnie Horwath, 5.670 with a .000 perfect light, these are rare, seems that we see one about every two years! Bike had Dave Clinedinst over Logan Mathias and Kevin Hamilton was third. Kermit Garnett’s turbo ‘Busa ran as quick as 4.96 @ 138 mph. Junior Street was won by Dylan Moore over Travis Hill. Seth Birks won over Jeff Hielman in Trophy. Great racing all day, terrific packages and razor thin margins of victory on many matchups in all the classes. Over 200 entries today. We finished at 7:30 PM. Thoughts on the weekend. Chris Lil added $100.00 to the purse on Sunday for the Junior drasters, thanks Chris! The weather really messed with us on Sat. And Sun. The Mason Dixon staff did everything possible to try to race those two days with a lot of hardwork and effort expended to get the track race ready, there is no QUIT in this bunch! A lot of patience shown by our racers also for sitting tight while made efforts to race. This bad stretch of weather will hopefully end soon!
