It was even hotter and really steamy, temps climbed to the upper 90’s. A somewhat smaller turn out but still good. Junior Dragsters, 30 strong got going right at 9:30 am with Cole Huth winning over Jaiman Dietz. A J Hiner and Mallory Dietz were the semi racers. Big cars hit the track at 11:30 am. Super Pro was a door car final, Mark Decker won over Roger Lewis, Dan Roberts was third. Pro had defending track champ Mark Harbaugh over Jim Berry, Travis Hill was third. Trophy was won by Caleb Peddicord over Desirae Roberts. Ronnie Proctor Jr. had his new race car out for it’s first shake down passes, looked good, ran a 6.15 @ 112 mph on the third pass. It will be good to have him racing again. We finished up just after 4 pm.
Thoughts on the weekend. Despite Sunday and Monday with really trying weather conditions the track was dynamite all four days, great hook, run after run racers hit the dial in and had .00 lights in each lane, everyone kept their cool through out the long days, the three bigger cleanups were handled really fast, minimal down time. On Saturday we had fourteen .000 lights, 2 were quad zip lights. On Saturday and Sunday we had entries from seven states. Many racers that typically run elsewhere came to our house for the weekend. Good to have all of them here…..Come back anytime! Steve Dickey helped announce most of the day Sunday, always a better day when he’s with us. Dianne Ford also announced some on Monday, she’s been around our sports since the 80’s, I’ll try get her to do some announcing again real soon. The entire Mason Dixon staff / owners worked hard and put in the long hours to make this holiday race a success. A big thanks to all the racers, their family and crew members, our sponsors and lastly our dedicated race fans! Test and Tune this Sunday with the Outlaw Pontiacs. See you this weekend at Mason Dixon Dragway!
