Steve English Scores Affordable Carpet Street Shootout Win
August 30 - The Affordable Carpet Street Shootout had a great weather day for the Street Money racers to take a crack at a big payday and it was Street Money/Trophy Ace Steve English scoring the big win. Steve's opponent was Jake Lipke who scored a runner-up finish in last week's Street Money final when he fouled out on the line against Jon Skellham. Determined not repeat that result, Jake took it too easy this time and gave up a .530 to .665 reaction time advantage to Steve and was forced into a breakout 11.814 on his 11.90 dial-in. Steve ran a solid 12.752 at 103.40 mph pass on his 12.73 dial-in to score the big paycheck. Mike Wilson was the lone semifinalist. A huge thank you to Mike Halsey of Affordable Carpet for his sponsorship and promotion of this event for the second-straight year.
