Ran the Saturday S/SS combo and came runner up.
Took home $250. Where my wife summarily confiscated it.

Car needs serious tuning but ran well enough under the G/PS index to compete.

My first run was up against Corbitt's Q/SA 96 Impala nemisis.
He ran a dead on 12.96 but took him out with a .006 Light and dead on my Dial.

Ran and beat a GT/SuperStocker 9.12ET
Next round knocked off a really quick new SS/BA 2010 Mustang that ran a 9.73ET.
One Bye run and he next round beat out a I/SA 76 Dodge
Then lost to a SS/FA 69 Camero Red lighting with a -.009 light in the final.

Car feels stronger than the 13.67-13.78 ET's it ran.
Should have run deep in the 13's.
Felt good to be back in the SuperRef.

Cannot make next weeks ATCO Race.
Been scheduled 8 Tournament Soccer games.

Hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving.

Good job Dan! Pics of the winnings or it didn't happencwm4

Chris
Hey Rocko, Corbitt and Eric:

I am waiting for the pics.
Below are the stats.
It was one excellent race car show.

Would have been an outstanding race. Larry has been coming here for a long time, and was cool to see him win one. Mohar pocketed $550 for his win, Fahey took home $250 in his street-legal big boat Chevy. Hallstrom earned $100, along with by far low ET and top speed of the weekend (at that point), and Ferrucci and Anderson received $50 for their efforts. Shelby Hurley drove her P/SA '55 Chevy to the win in the No-Elecronics Gamblers Race, a nice birthday present a day early. Eight cars that ran on Saturday, during the test and tune and/or combo race, broke and were unable to run, or were unable to return for Sunday. They were:
Marty Rinehart SS/EA '69 Camaro
Rick Golliday SS/D '69 AMX
Terry Knott G/CM '74 Dart Sport
Charlie Walc SS/KA '72 Duster
Carroll Morris
Craig Jernigan
Jerome Hillier
Dan Fahey, who referee's soccer games, had done two games Saturday morning, came to Mason-Dixon, made one time trial, entered the race and was runner-up. He had more games on Sunday and could not return.

Sunday's results. Weather, sunny and some clouds, slightly breezy, high near 50. 47 cars showed, 44 ran first round. Dial-in in (). (R) = redlight

Mike Volkman GT/GA '00 Sebring 10.05 (10.03) def Ed Newton SS/AX '79 Monza 9.80 (9.19). I wondered why Ed's car is now black instead of the old purple-ish color. It's a whole new car, to replace the old one which was destroyed in an accident last year at 75-80 Dragway.

Wallace "Pie" Dent, who once raced a Stocker formerly raced by the late Lee Sherman, fittingly wins the Tenth Annual (named) Lee Sherman Memorial race. "Qualifying" (the ladder is set for round 2 based on winning round 1 reaction times) was tough. An .030 light got you 12th out of 22 cars and an .012 got you seventh. Three cars on Sunday had trouble and could not compete.
Dan Henderson SS/FA '70 Challenger
Gary Simper's Jr GT/GA '88 T-bird
Harry Golliday SS/F '67 Camaro

We had 55 total cars for the weeked. A little less than I expected, but still a great turnout, for the chilly weather, which I'm sure kept a few folks home. It was the biggest turnout ever for a Saturday here, and the second biggest turnout for both a total car count and a Sunday first round. I really want to thank everyone for coming out. I hope you had as much fun at it as we did. We will do it again next year, and probably also will be another $2,000 to win race, so I can have a whole year to hype it, instead of six weeks. See you all next year!

Mike, Wendy and Gary Carr
