Saturday  —  June 1st
Something different….We had a car parts and yard sale type flea market out on the route 40 side of the track getting underway early with a pretty good turnout of vendors and shoppers. Things slowed down in the early afternoon then we got ready for our scheduled Test & Tune event that got underway at 5:pm. This was well attended with 106 Test & Tune racers plus a Nasty Nine race with 11 entries. The index for the Nasty Nine cars was a fast 9.80, in the end Charlie Booze Jr. took the win over Justin Fogelsonger, John Moser took third place. We also ran a no entry fee Gamblers Race with 58 cars entered. This was an all dragster final as Mike Boyd beat Ryan Jordan, semi racers were Dave Slusher Jr. and Cody Roberts. Runs of the night, Mike Motto and Greg Dahl made the trip from the Pittsburg area to test their Harleys and did they fly. A side by side pass had Greg Dahl run 7.59 @185 mph and right behind was Mike Motto running a 7.77 @ 182 mph. Both these bikes hit 150+ mph to the 1/8 mile…rockets for sure. What a nice show by all, great racing with many of our loyal race fans enjoying the nice evening. We finished up at 10:15 pm.
Sunday  —  June 2nd
This was our Run What You Brung event and an Outlaw Pontiac race. The weather a non issue though it was warm and humid, temps in the mid 80’s with one or two very light sprinkles that caused no down time. Run What You Brung had a moderate car count racing for cash and the first time beautiful Steel Mason Dixon trophy, first ever of its kind to the winner. We got underway right at 11:30 am. Everyone one got two time runs. We kept Box and No-Box cars separate til the semi-finals. The final had the No-Box entry of Rick Wenger winning over Ryan Jordan and the semi racers were Joe Martz and Caleb Peddicord. Outlaw Pontiac had 16 cars with some really nice cars, in the end Lester Holtzapple ran points leader Chuck Hutzler, Chuck ran dead on, 8.67 to Lester’s one off 11.48. Lester had the better light and took a real close win. Bruce Garber took third place. The Pontiacs will be back for the June 22nd Rocking Chair Nationals. A big thanks to Steve Dickey for coming down and announcing a good bit, always a better day when Steve is with us. We finished up about 4 pm.
This weekend on Saturday “The Just Jeeps” event which has racing and show cars with us. We are closed on Sunday. See everyone this Saturday at Mason Dixon Dragway!
