Summit E.T. Racing Series - August 7th


Today we hosted a special fund raising event to benefit the Susan G. Komen Foundation as well as our regular Summit E.T. Points series event. There was rain all around us with us getting a small amount in the morning, but we dodged all the heavy stuff and completed the race in the 1/8 mile format.

Mike Larose drove his newly painted ’69 Dart to the Susan G. Komen race win by stopping Gene Stankivitz III in the final round. Mike had a .533 to .591 staring line advantage and ran right on his 6.65 dial with a 6.657 at 94.90 mph to turn stop Gene who nailed his 6.65 dial with a 6.659 at 100.89 mph runner up effort. Gary Simons returned to racing today and was the semifinalist. A big thanks to Chris Raineri for putting this race together and making it run smoothly.


FX Caprara Bad Hombre 10K Race

July 23 - Temperatures scorched the ESTA quarter-mile and the racers scorched it to the eighth-mile in their quest for the big 10K paycheck in the F.X. Caprara Bad Hombre 10K shootout. With a mix of 100 door cars and dragsters all competing it came down to Carl Drake Jr. (CJ) in his ’11 Diamond dragster taking on Chris Scarlata in his ’97 Mullis dragster for the big buck payday. CJ lost round 1, bought back in, lost that round then wheeled and dealed for the "Mulligan" Ticket which exchanged hands a few times. A deal was made with Vince Musolino and that deal put CJ into round 5!

ESTA's version of "Let's Make A Deal" paid off for CJ as he bettered NYIRP regular Scarlata in an all dragster final round for the big payout. This one was over early as Chris had some sort of transmission problem causing him to have a subpar .886 reaction time, which you can’t have against a driver of Carl’s caliber. Carl had a .525 light and cruised to a 5.021 at 113.13 mph run on his 4.78 dial ,while Chris ran a 5.33 at 108.19 mph on his 5.03 dial for the $2,500 runner up payoff. Ross Adams was the semifinalist in his dragster.

A huge thank you to the FX Caprara folks. This event simply would not have happened without them, and a thank you goes out to Vince Musolino who was the event director for the day. Thanks again to all the competitors and fans for making this event a great success.
