Scott Beasaw Sr. is starting 2023 out on a hot pace and currently holds the top spot in both Super Pro and Pro divisions. It's early yet, but nothing like going rounds early in the season to boost confidence going forward. In Sunday's Super final, Scott cut an outstanding .001 light and drove to a .020-over, 7.42 at 91.44 mph on his 7.40 dial to score the win over South Rome Racing's Tom Samsel. Tom dialed up a 5.46 was .007 closer to his dial over Scott, but his 5.473 at 123.67 mph wasn't enough to close the reaction time gap and had to settle for the runner-up finish.
Semifinal action saw Scott stop Matt Himes, while Tom drew the bye run into the finals.
Nick Beasaw held a slight .024 to .038 reaction time advantage over Jacob Bombard, but broke out by .032, 7.178 at 91.27 mph/7.21 dial, trying to hold off Jacob's charge. Jacob dialed in the Bombard family war horse, "Dr. Detroit" '71 Camaro at a 7.03 and drove to a winning 7.068 at an identical 91.27 mph pass. Winning margin of victory was .084 seconds.
Jake Lipke fell to Jacob in the semis with his red light start.
Bob Salerno improved on his May 28th semifinal run and scored the Pro MX Championship win over Kevin Sutliffe. Bob held a comfortable .039 to .110 reaction time cushion at the line and parlayed that into a 5.904 at 109.44 mph run on his 5.82 dial-in for the win. Kevin dialed his Kawasaki in at a 5.72 and ran a 5.791 at 123.03 mph for the runner-up effort.
Ron Dean bowed out to Kevin Sutliffe in the semis, while Kevin Wuest fell to Bob in their semifinal match.
Dave Tingley went .001 red in last Sunday's final, but was on the green side of the tree on Sunday and scored the Street Money win over Pat Minogue who went -.053 red in Sunday's final. Pat dialed his '11 Caprice in at a 9.15 and drove .040 closer to his dial than Dave, but his 9.194 at 78.36 mph pass was for naught. Dave dialed his '69 Chevelle in at a 7.41 and drove to a winning, 7.494 at 90.14 mph pass. Dave's two final round appearances has given him a 4 point cushion over Jace Hubbard with 2 events in the books.
Todd Minerd advanced 4 rounds before being trailered by Pat in the semis.
Dave Miller bowed out in the semis on the 28th, but made it 2 wins further on Sunday to score his first win of the young season. Dave held a comfortable .010 to .064 reaction time lead over Brian Mahler and drove to a .029-over, 9.889 at 134.10 mph to score the white timeslip.
Brian dialed up a 8.66 and went a solid, 8.687 at 150.71 mph run, but couldn't chase Dave's Ranger down and settled for the runner-up finish.
Scott Smith was the lone semifinalist falling to Brian, while Dave had the solo run.
The race was basically over on the line as Tim Patterson held a massive .041 to .385 reaction time lead over Kim Rossiter and scored the Street Trophy Eliminator title on the strength of his 13.100 at 107.10 mph pass on his 12.88 dial. Kim is a solid driver and just missed the tree, forcing her into a breakout, 14.923 at 97.11 mph pass on her 15.10 dial-in and had to settle for the runner-up finish.
In the semis, Tim knocked out Pat Minogue, while J. Murray fell to Kim to set up the trophy finals.
Kevin Wuest got his '18 Polaris XCR back on the rails in week 2 and scored the double-breakout win over Kevin Sutliffe in the Bike/Sled Trophy final. Kevin held a .039 to .073 reaction time advantage and drove to a -.027-under, 9.713, at 131.76 mph on his 9.74 dial-in for the win.
