Sunday opened up bright and sunny, but we were limited to just one qualifying pass due to the abnormal amount of race cars that showed up for the race.  This race was sponsored by Linne Racing/Debra Linne.

Adventures North of the Border

Off to Canada.  I found out the hard way, do not use the commercial entry port going in to Canada.  Made it across the border and on to Mission Raceway.

Saturday morning was a little overcast, but temp was fine.  Race nine of thirteen had twelve cars to do battle.

This race was sponsored by RPM Automotive.

Race day started at 11:00 am. Our first qualifying pass was around 12:24 pm. All twelve made it down the track, even if some had some problems.  Darral Petitt, one of the last two cars, set the standard with an 8.901. He left some room for someone to oust him, but it didn’t happen. After two rounds of qualifying Darral held on to grab the #1 Qualifier Award from Snap On Tools. Going in to first round, there were four 8.90’s with change.

We had some newcomers join us for first round. Thanks to the Canadians for joining us. Darrel Petitt vs Warren Kean, Mike Shannon vs Tom Papp, Emmett McKillop vs Tim Petitt, Yeshua Wilcox vs Dennis Boley, Dave Thornton vs Dale Green, and Mike Pople vs Al Hampton were the first round pairs.

Second round found Petitt (D) vs Shannon, McKillop vs Wilcox, and Thornton vs Hampton. On to the semi’s. Petitt got the bye and Hampton survived via a red light by Wilcox.  After a bunch of funny cars ran we got to the final at 7:35 pm. Hampton vs Petitt. Hampton had the better light and turned it in to a victory with an 8.954 over an 8.944. Congrats to Al Hampton. Thanks to RPM Automotive for their sponsorship.

Next race is Saturday, July 30, at Pacific Raceways. This race is sponsored by DG Machine. Only four races left. Come join us for fun in the sun.

Pacific Raceway Highlights

Race eight of thirteen found the Association at Pacific Raceways on a Saturday morning. Coming in to the track, it did not look like we would get the race completed. It was very overcast and there was a lot of moisture on the track.  The Pacific Raceway crew got to work and things started to look better.Johnson No1

This race was sponsored by Kelly’s Auto Repair and Jim & Cheryl Morris.

Due to the late start and the fact there were over 200 cars in attendance, it was decided to have only one round of qualifying.  Of the eleven Association racers, Mark Johnson got the coveted Low Qualifier Award from Snap On Tools with a great 8.902.

Mark Johnson, Emmett McKillop, Arlyn Staiger, Tim Petitt, John Theofelis, Ed Hauter, Randy Beck, David Thorton, Darral Pettit, Mark Gillespie, and Dale Green made the trip to first round.

Dale Green and Emmett McKillop met in the final round. Dale defeated Nick Drzayich, Darral Pettit, and Randy Beck on his way to the final. On the other side of the ladder, Emmett got around Dave Thorton, John Theofelis, and Ed Hauter. Emmett was also doing pretty well in Super Pro and so the Super Comp final was the last race of the day.  Emmett won Super Pro and came back around to try and double up. But, alas the double was not to happen this day.  Emmett turned on the red light to give the race to Dale.

Green WinnerThe weather held off long enough to get the race done, and while taking winner’s circle pictures, Mother Nature finally unleashed the showers.

Next race is Saturday, July 23, at Mission Raceway. This race is sponsored by RPM Automotive. The Association race is on Saturday, and on Sunday is the National Open.

Bremerton Race Results

Fourth of July weekend, and what better way to celebrate our freedom than a drag racing event.

Race #6 found us at Bremerton Raceway. The weather was cool and overcast, but that’s ok.  Five racers came out on Saturday to do battle. This race was sponsored by Westbay Auto Parts.

After two rounds of qualifying, Dale Green sat on top with an 8.902 and received the award from Snap On Tools.

Dennis Boley, Emmett McKillop, Marc Heritage, Marion Hurst, and Dale Green were there to do battle.

Marc Heritage beat Dennis Boley, then took out #1 qualifier Dale Green to advance to the final.

Marion Hurst used a holeshot to beat Emmett McKillop, then had the bye into the final.

In the final Marc had a better .007 light to Marion’s .015 and then held on for the win.

A big thank you to Westbay Auto Parts as the race sponsor.

A BBQ was held Saturday night and fun was there.

Sunday was even darker and there was a hint of moisture, but not enough to stop the racing.  There was a delay to the start of things due to a computer glitch, but it got fixed. Race was sponsored by Peninsula Lubricants.

We only had four racers on Sunday. Dennis Boley, Dale Green, Emmett McKillop, and newcomer John Theofelis. After the first qualifying session, we decided to go into first round.  With the computer delay, and on track incident, and the iffy weather, it seemed like a good idea to get the race done.  Dale Green got the #1 qualifier award again with an 8.903.

First round found Dale against Dennis with Dennis taking the win. John overcame a bad light to take out Emmett to set up the final.  John used a steller .003 to a .012 light to take the win, 9.048 to a 9.049. Congrats to the new guy, hope you continue to race with us.

Next race is Saturday, July 9, at Pacific Raceways. This race is sponsored by Kelly’s Auto Repair and Jim & Cheryl Morris.

Ok. ONo1n to race #5 sponsored by C&C Olympic Heating held at Pacific Raceway on June 11.  The day started out kind of wet.  In fact, a few people thought the race might not happen at all.  But, thanks to the crew at Pacific, we got the race done.  Due to the late start only one qualifying run was made, but I think everyone was ok with that decision.

RUpThere were nine racers in Super Comp, but only eight signed up for the Association race.

Tim Petitt got the low qualifier award from Snap On tools with an 8.955 qualifying run.  He also got the bye in first round.

Tim Petitt, Mark Gillespie, Jerry Denton, Darral Petitt, Arlyn Staiger, Ed Hauter, David Thorton, and Dale Green started out on the road to the winner’s circle.

Dale Green beat Mark Johnson, David Thorton, and then had the bye to the final round.

DWinnerarral Petitt overcame Arlyn Staiger, then beat his father Tim in the second round. He used a holeshot advantage to beat Mark Gillespie with an 8.955 to an 8.954 in the semi round.

In the final Dale Green used his starting line advantage to force Darral to break out. Green ran an 8.913 to Darral’s 8.891.

A big thank you to C&C Olympic Heating as the race sponsor.

Next race is July 2 and July 3 at Bremerton Raceway.

Sorry about your incident at Pacific Raceways. And congratulations to Katie and Trevor Harkema, who are expecting a new racer soon.
Ty WinnerRacing at Renegade Raceways in Wapato, WA. was held on May 27 and 28. Weather was pretty good for both days. Started out with nine racers on Saturday. Ty Anderson, Mark Gillespie, Dave Thornton, Trevor Harkema, Tom Bachand, Dale Green, Yeshua Wilcox, Arlyn Staiger, and Jakson Gradin were in attendance. Ty Anderson was the #1 qualifier with an 8.909. He got the first round bye and went on to beat Thornton and Harkema to reach his second final in two races. Dale Green took on newcomer Wilcox and beat Gradin and get the bye in the semis to advance to the final. In a double breakout final Anderson was closer with an 8.889 to Green’s 8.877 for the win. Two in row for Anderson. The Saturday race was finished on Sunday due to the late hour.

Trevor WinnerSunday we started with eight racers. Tom Bachand was the #1 qualifier and he beat up on Thornton and Green to reach the final. Harkema bested Anderson and Gradin and then went on to run an 8.902 to an 8.866 for the win. There were a lot of close races.

Clarifying Woodburn Results

I am writing this article to clarify the results from the race at Woodburn Dragstrip.

On Saturday Ty Anderson showed up, paid his entry fee, and then went through tech.  He made a qualifying run and later he came up and made an elimination run. Because he qualified and ran first round, he is declared the winner.  According to our points program, 86 points are awarded to the winner when the car field is 1, 2, 3, or 4.  Therefore he got 86 points for the Saturday race.

Then on Sunday the race was cancelled so he gets 11 points for being there.

Hopefully this clears up any confusion.  The payout money left over will be added to the championship payout.

Don’t forget there is a race this weekend at Renegade Raceways in Yakima, WA.  Two day race. Race sponsors are the Dalrymple Family and Access Performance.

I have t-shirts available for sale. Designs Unlimited made them and they list all the sponsors on the back.  The price is $15 a shirt, with the money going to the prize fund.
