Scott Forbes' return to the Super Pro battles resulted in the win over Ron Calhoun. Driving his 4th generation Camaro, Scott dialed up a 6.82 and nailed the tree with a .012 reaction and stopped the top end clocks at a .009-over, 6.829 at 98.28 mph to secure the win. Ron drove his '67 Chevy II Nova to a -0.010-under, 5.490 at 123.84 mph on his 5.50 dial and had to settle for the runner-up finish.
Tim Roberts was the lone semifinalist.
Matt Consiglio fell in round 1, but bought back in and made it count as he parked his '72 Nova into the Pro Winner Circle when Scott Beasaw Sr. broke out in their final round match. Matt held a .049 to .064 reaction time advantage, and drove to a solid .010-over, 6.580 at 100.28 mph on his 6.57 dial to snag the win light. Scott dialed his '74 Camaro in at a 7.40, but dove just under dial with a 7.395 at 92.54 mph and settled for the number 2 finish. Both Chris Corlyon and Nick Carr drove well on the day, but bowed out in the semifinal round.
Robert Williams scored the win over Brandon MacCombie in a double breakout Pro MX final. Rob had a .200 head start and gave up a .075 to .024 reaction time advantage to Brandon, but ran closer to his 6.30 dial-in with a 6.199 at 121.24 mph shot. Brandon dialed in at 6.10 and ran a 5.981 at 118.96 mph but gave up the win light by a .069 second margin.
In semifinal action, Vern Schmidt made his first return weekend of racing a great confidence booster as he rode his '86 Yamaha Radian to a great semifinal run, falling to Brandon, while Bob Salerno bowed out to Rob in their semifinal match.
Dave Tingley was .001 seconds away from a win light, but that light glowed in Jace Hubbard's lane as his 8.115 at 85.53 mph on his 8.09 dial-in was good for the win. Jace held a healthy .005 to .074 reaction time advantage and was the catalyst that pushed Dave into a -0.001-under, 7.379 at 90.86 mph breakout pass on his 7.38 dial-in. Margin of victory for Jace was a comfortable .043.
Semifinal action saw both Todd Lipke and Steve English end their days in the 4th round.
PJ Haynes had a solid .016 to .055 reaction time cushion to work with at the quarter-mile over Tom Simone and scored the Modified win. Tom got the head start with his 10.90 dial and drove to a closer, .077-over, 10.977 at 125.67 mph pass, but PJ's R.T. lead allowed his 9.752 at 123.87 mph pass on his 9.65 dial to get the win with a slim .014 margin.
Dave Miller was the lone semifinalist.
David Gwin scored the Street Trophy win over defending champion, Pat Minogue when Pat fouled on the line with a -.011 red light. Pat dialed his '11 Caprice in at a 14.20 and ran it out to a 14.228 at 100.04 mph. Pat's foul was a blessing as David's .212 reaction certainly would have made it tough, but he had a free run and drove to a -.015-under, 12.385 at 107.52 mph on his 12.40 dial to take the win. Tim Stanley was the lone semifinalist.
With over 4-seconds to sit on the line while Vern Schmidt hits 3rd gear down track, Robert Williams gave up a .103 second reaction time lead to Vern with a .308 to .205 deficit. Fortunately for Rob, Vern missed a shift and fell off his 13.91 dial-in with a 14.930 at 90.11 mph pass. Rob quickly caught Vern and lifted to a 10.285 at 87.41 mph run on his 9.50 dial-in to secure his second win on the day.
