Congratulations to the ESTA Bracket Finals team on their 3rd place finish at Lebanon Valley. The entire team did a great job with several making it through the early rounds, which is always a key in this race. Lasting until the 6th round were Vince Musolino and Jack Vault in Super and Mike LaRose in Pro, all three losing by a few thousandths. Anthony Zegarelli lost in the 5th round of Pro and I think Don Austin and Ryan Orizino lasted until the 4th round of their respective classes. Tom Doig was awarded with the Best Engineered Car , well deserved for all his efforts. Here is who made up the Team for 2016: Super Pro, Vince Musolino, Tom Doig, Kris Larsen, Cody Reome, Mike Scribani, Jordan Reader, Jack Vault, Pete Curpier, Fred Jacobs, Iggy Falcone, Jack Reome, Heather Scheirer, Crystal Curpier, and Terry Scheirer. Pro: Mike LaRose, Anthony Zegarelli, AJ Meier, Myles Higby, Becca Searles, Don Austin, Jessica DeSiato, Terry Lee, Gary Rolfe Jr. and Todd Lipke.

The ESTA Jr. Dragster Team made its way down to Mason Dixon Dragway located in Boonsboro, MD. Aug. 11-13 to do battle at the NHRA Div. 1 Jr. Dragster Bracket Finals. The team consisted of Jazmyne Short, Abby Hacker, Daniel Thorpe, Alexis Collins, Natalie Musolino and Ron Klein Jr. The team represented ESTA very nicely throughout the event and even though the temperatures were in the mid 90’s with unreal humidity everyone seemed to enjoy themselves. In the main event Daniel Thorpe went the furthest losing in the quarter final round (4th round) by a heartbreaking .009, his class was the 12-13 age group and he was the only 8.90 car in the group to make it that far. Abby Hacker lost in the 3rd round of the 14-15 year old group. She was on a tear cutting great lights and running her dial but in the third round she was again great at the tree but for some reason the car fell off her 7.92 dial with a 7.95 pass and that ended her day. Natalie made it to the second round in the 10-11 year old group. Natalie went right on her 8.94 dial in the first round and had a great .024 light in the second round but unfortunately she misjudged the finish line and her opponent went right on their dial in and slipped past her at the stripe, something that she’ll learn from as she gets older. Alexis and Jazmyne both had some mechanical issues in the first round and could not run close to their dial in’s ending both of their days racing action. Ron Klein Jr., three times a runner up at this event and appearing in his final Jr. Dragster D1 Finals lost a close race in the first round running just under his dial in for the loss. He’s had a great Jr. Dragster career and should be applauded for his accomplishments. Jazmyne also represented us in the Race of Champions and her car ran well in that race on Friday but she lost a close one in the first round. Thanks to all the kids and their parents for getting them there to participate. Colleen as usual did a great job getting the shirts done and although some (not all) of our bleacher decorations were washed away by Friday evening’s rain storm our section looked great. We had great team Spirit even though the weather was unbearably hot we were one of the few teams with people in the stands every round.

Here’s how day 2 of the Bill Lake Home’s 10K Bracket Bash went on Sunday.

Steve was .007 at the tree and ran 4.821 at 140.50 mph on his 4.81 dial to take home the 10 grand winner’s check.

Bob had a .026 light and nailed hos 6.06 dial in with a right on 6.063 at 109.70 mph to take home the nice $1000 payday. Russ had a decent .026 light but ran slightly off his 7.17 dial with a 7.196 at 93.10 mph runner up pass and settling for the $400 runner up money.Terry Lee and Ray Thurston III were the semifinalists. We also had a Jr. Dragster race today sponsored by Mike Hills of Vertical Technologies and it was Ron Klein Jr. making his way into the winners circle stopping Daniel Thorpe in the money round. Ron had a .067 to .152 advantage at the start and he won it with a 7.958 at 77.50 mph on his 7.90 dial. Danny matched his 8.93 dial with an 8.930 at 72.20 mph runner up effort. Natalie Musolino lost to Ron in the semi’s. Frank Angers won the Abruzzi Challenge over Tim Roberts. Frank dialed in at a 4.47 and had a .001 light and ran 4.480 at 157.70 mph in his Procharger dragster while Tim was .028 at the tree and ran right on his 5.55 dial with a 5.556 at 123.00 mph.

Here’s a recap of the final rounds of the Bill Lake Homes 10K Bracket Bash for Saturday. Russ Denmark won the 10K final round over Frank Angers. Russ had a .024 light and ran right on his 4.58 dial with a 4.586 at 150.40 mph. Frank had a better .012 light but ran off his 4.48 dial with a 4.513 at 149.43 mph. Mark Talmadge lost to Russ in the semi’s. Joel Lapierre beat Matt Spisak in the High Roller Door Car final round using a .015 to .036 starting line advantage to his favor running 6.45 at 103.71 mph on his 6.43 dial to cover Matt’s right on the dial 5.16 at 133.48 mph runner up pass. Jeremy Popple lost in the semi’s. In the High Roller Dragster final round it was 2015 NHRA Top Dragster World Champ Marco Abruzzi defeating a red lighting Russ Adams. Russ was -.002 red and shut off while Marco put together a stout final round package with a .003 light and running 4.658 at 148.07 mph on his 4.65 dial. Frank Mark Jr. and John Bochon were the semifinalists. It was a great first day of racing and day 2 looks to be just as exciting.

July 23-24 the TWIN $10K BRACKET BASH returns this year with BILL LAKE HOMES coming on as the title sponsor. On tap will be some of the best bracket racers competing for a boat load of cash with no points implications involved. This should be some of the best 1/8 mile action of the season. There is a copy of the flyer on the Facebook page.
I also want to thank in advance Vince, Colleen, Jim and Jane for what I am sure has been plenty of work in preparing for this race and what it will entail on both race days. Thanks to Billy Caprara for his past sponsorship of the event as well.

I am pleased to say that our new Daktronics Scoreboards are working as anyone that was here Sunday got to see. We have switched our reaction times now to read .000 for a perfect light where before it was .500 so for example if before you had a .508 light it now would be .008, a .608 light would read .108, red lights will now read negative numbers, .499 would be -.001. The win light is now mounted on the bottom of the scoreboard in the center. I am still working with Daktronics about the driver win light that is approx. 700 feet past the finish line so for now that light is not operational but should be soon. Thanks again to NAPA and it is a huge relief to have these working again.
