Matt Himes was gunning for his second-straight Super Pro win, but Freddie Jacobs had other intentions. Matt looked like he was on his way as he got his run started with an awesome .002 reaction, but Freddie was right there, launching his '94 LeBaron with an equally impressive .008 light. With Freddie charging hard, Matt slipped under his 6.46 dial-in with a 6.451 at 104.91 mph and had to settle for the runner-up finish. Fred dialed up a 5.07 in the window and drove to a .012-over, 5.082 at 134.77 mph for a .027 margin of victory.
In the semifinals, Iggy Falcone fell to Matt, while Fred drew the bye-run into the finals.
Sunday's Pro final payout was greatly enhanced by $2,500 for the Tiffany and Colleen Memorial event presented by Meek's Trucking and Bear Automotive Service, day 2 of racing to celebrate the lives of Tiffany and Colleen. Matt Consiglio fell 1 round win short of the Saturday purse, falling to Jake Lipke, but made up for it by scoring Sunday's win over Mark Talmadge. Matt's .015 to .033 holeshot was the difference as Mark's .002-over, 6.032 at 111.55 mph was .003 closer than Matt's 6.495 at 103.64 mph pass on his 6.49 dial, but the win light lit up in Matt's lane. Text book runs by both drivers! Joe Williams was the lone semifinalist.
Bob Salerno unleashed some payback on Kevin Wuest in Sunday's Pro MX final after falling to Kevin in the August 20 final. The race was over at the line as Kevin pushed the tree a tad too hard and fouled out with a -.005 red light start. Bob's Arctic Cat launched with a .024 light and drove to a winning 5.408 at 114.53 mph on his 5.44 dial-in. The win pushed Bob back into a first place tie in points with Kevin. Kevin dialed his Polaris in at a 6.03 and ran it out to a -.011-under, 6.019 at 111.47 mph for the runner-up honors. Kevin Sutliffe piloted his Haybusa to the lone semifinal finish.
Steve English scored his first second-straight Street money win of the season defeating Pat Minogue by a slim .007 margin of victory. Pat held a slight, .058 to .066 reaction time advantage over Steve, but ran .059 off his 9.25 dial-in with a 9.309 at 77.53 mph pass. Steve's .044-over, 7.854 at 83.97 mph pass on his 7.81 dial was enough to score the win. Bill Coon drove his '84 Camaro to the lone semifinal finish of the class.
Dave Miller had Brian Mahler dead-to-rights on the line as his .002 to .047 reaction time lead put him into great shape for a win, but he took too much finishline and broke out of his 6.27 dial-in with a 6.258 at 108.48 mph pass and had to settle for the runner-up finish. Defending Modified champion Brian dialed his dragster in at a 5.44 and drove to a winning 5.473 at 124.33 mph pass.
