2012 Racing Season Opens with No-Points E.T. Racing
April 29 - Cold and windy, but dry conditions greeted racers as we conducted our first weekend of class competition for our regular E.T. Series classes on Sunday. Payouts and trophies were up for grabs, but no points towards season championships were on the line today. Due to the windy conditions at the top end, it was decided to run 1/8th today for safety reasons.
This Saturday, May 5th we will be running a test 'n tune event for racers wishing to "dial-it-in" one more time before the 2012 Summit Racing E.T. Series gets underway on Sunday.
In Super Pro it was Ken Miller wheeling his ’72 Maverick through field taking the win over a red lighting Tana Caprara who was in her Chevy powered dragster. Ken drilled the tree with a .504 light and ran 6.723 at 100.90 mph on his 6.69 dial. Tana bulbed with a .490 and ran 4.940 at 142.04 mph on her 4.89 dial in. Bob Belvick was the semifinalist.
Howie Smith drove his father’s ’80 Malibu Stocker to the win in Pro by stopping Mike LaRose who was in his ’69 Dart. Mike held the slight reaction time advantage .567 to .575 but he ran further under his dial in of 6.46 with a 6.444 at 103.73 mph effort. Howie scored the win with a less offensive 7.576 at 86.03 mph on his 7.58 dial in. Terry Lee was the semifinalist.
