LaRose Jr. Defeats Belvick for King of the Track Crown
September 1 - With the threat of stormy afternoon weather today we shortened the race length to 1/8 mile and completed the King of The Track race, as well as a Summit E.T. points race for our regular competitors.
In the King of the Track Race which pitted our top class point earners against each other for the coveted win, it was Mike LaRose Jr. adding one of the "Wally's" to his own trophy mantle (his father has won this twice) when he defeated Bob Belvick in the final round. Mike drove his father's '68 Plymouth GTX to a .510 to .588 starting line advantage over Bob who was in his Chevy powered dragster. Bob ran right on his 4.95 dial with a 4.955 at 132.36 mph, but that could not catch Mike who won with a 6.548 at 100.43 mph run on his 6.49 dial-in. Don Austin and Ryan Orizino were the semifinalists.
