Sibling rivalry reigned in the Pro MX final on Sunday as Derek and Corey Eastman squared off in the finals with Derek scoring the win light. The brothers both rode to .014-over passes, but Corey's -.055 foul negated any photo finish opportunity. Derek dialed in at an 11.35 and got his run started with a .049 light and drove to an 11.364 at 109.11 mph, while Corey drove to a 10.214 at 122.60 mph on his 10.20 dial-in for the runner-up finish.
Derek put Tim Diglio and his Gixxer on the trailer in the semis, while Corey drew the bye-run into the finals. In round 3, Corey used a .124 to .153 reaction time advantage to push Pop, Sudsy into a .007-under breakout and avoided Sudsy's "toolshed!"
Rick Vose held a 3 point lead in the Street Money division heading into Sunday's program and added to that lead with his win over first-time racer Chris Gentile. Chris dialed his '10 Mercedes in at 13.15 and got his run started with a .089 light, but Rick was a little quicker on the tree with a .027 reaction.

Danny Meile gave up a slight reaction time advantage to Brian Mahler in the Modified final, .033 to .027, but scrubbed nearly 10 mph off his run at the finish as Brian's 8.667 at 155.25 mph on his 8.53 dial wasn't enough to reel Danny in. Danny dialed in at a 10.73 and took the finishline with a 10.826 at 113.80 mph to score the win light.
In the semis, Danny matched up against Dave Miller and his S-10 and overcame Dave's .085 to .101 reaction time advantage to take the win and advance to the finals against Brian who drew the bye-run.
Tracy Stanley one-upped his July 3rd runner-up finish to Clarence Spady and scored the Street Trophy win over Chris Gentile. Tracy dialed his 2011 Camaro SS in at 14.20 and launched with a .146 reaction, but the race was quickly over as Chris fouled out with a -.500 red light.

As stated earlier, the was Chris' first time racing, and with 38 entries in the Street Money class, this was Chris' first final round. He would eventually fall to Rick Vose in the Money final, but overall a great weekend for a newbie!
In the semis, Tracy won a double-breakout race against Pat Minogue, while Chris drew the solo run.
John Kuhfta scored his first Bike/Sled Trophy win of the season when he held off Ron Underwood's potent Suzuki Hyabusa. Ron ran closer to his dial with a .079-over, 9.179 at 149.14 mph pass, but his too quick, -.201 red light ended any chance for the win. John launched his '94 Polaris Indy with a .088 light and rode to the win with a 11.379 at 108.03 mph pass on his 11.24 dial-in.
John gave up a R.T. lead to Kevin Wuest in their semifinal match, but his .008-over, 11.258 was just enough to push Kevin into a .001-under, breakout pass. Ron defeated Corey Eastman in their semifinal match to advance to the final.
The Halsey siblings Brody and Bailee were both dialing in their new rides and it was "B-Money" Brody scoring the Junior Dragster win when Bailee was too eager on the line and fouled out, handing Brody the win, Brody dialed in at 11.22 and drove to an 11.196 at 56.59 mph, while Bailee blasted her 9.55 dial-in with a 9.219 at 69.18 mph in the runner-up effort.
