Summit E.T. Racing Series - July 17th

Steve English Winner Circle

Ron LaRose's .002 Package Nets Super Pro Win

July 17 - We returned to our regularly scheduled programming yesterday that included the Pro Showdown and Street Bike Challenge from the rained out July 10 event, plus the scheduled Street Showdown event. Steve English deservedly receives the spotlight today as he methodically picked off opponents in three classes to score the Pro Showdown, Street Showdown and Street Trophy wins on Sunday! Who knows? The Street Bike Challenge might have been up for grabs as well had someone loaned him their ride! He was a roll! Here's how the final rounds shook out and the boxscores below.

Ron LaRose - Super Pro

Super Pro
In anticipation of next week's Twin 10K's the Super Pro gang decided to run the 1/8 mile format today and it was Ron LaRose in his dragster defeating Josh Speck in his dragster. Ron had a .001 reaction time and ran right on his 4.67 dial with a 4.671 at 148.54 mph. Josh left the red light glowing in his lane and shut off. Tom Belvick and Tom Doig were the semifinalists.

Steve English got his first of three wins today in Pro when he stopped Mark Dobie in his '658 Nova. Steve held the starting line advantage .049 to .118 and he ran right on his 12.53 dial with an impressive 12.537 at 106.63 mph winning pass. Mark ran under his 10.18 dial with a 10.153 at 131.51 mph. Steve won $1,000 plus the "Tree" trophy for the Pro Showdown win. Bob Mayers lasted until the semis.

Brian Moulton - Pro MX

Street Money
Steve English struck again when he drove his '82 Cutlass the Street Showdown win pocketing another $500 plus another "Tree" trophy. His final round opponent Clarence Spadey in his '99 Toyota should have won this one as he held a .067 to .139 starting line advantage, but he ran under his 17.85 dial-in with a 17.785 at 76.38 mph allowing Steve's less offensive 12.488 at 109.53 mph run on his 12.53 take the win.

Jazmyne Short - Jr. Dragster

Matt Luke - Street Bike Challenge

Street Bike Challenge
In the special Street Bike Challenge it was Matt Luke on his '15 Suzuki taking on Tim Stanley who was riding his '11 Suzuki.

Tim was right there settling for the runner up spot with his .125-initiated, 9.403 at 145.14 mph on his 9.33 dial. Slaven Peric and Steve Stone lost in the semis.
