It has been a month since the racers came together to do battle in the Pacific Northwest Super Comp ranks. They gathered at Woodburn Dragstrip for the final two races of the year. The first race was sponsored by Designs Unlimited. The weather on Saturday started out iffy, but we finally got a qualifying run for the twelve racers. Ty Anderson was #1 with an 8.904. Snap On tools provided the #1 Qualifier Award.
Ty Anderson, Darral Petitt, Arlyn Staiger, Dennis Boley, Dale Green, Emmett McKillop, Tim Petitt, Rick Dearinger, Ross Souza, Kyleah Taylor, Greg Pessemier, and Tony Arthur were the twelve who showed up to race.
In round one, Boley forced Taylor to break out, Arthur pushed McKillop under, Green and Pessemier had a double breakout with Green closer, D Petitt and Dearinger had the battle of red lights with Petitt -.007, Anderson went -.005 to T Petitt, and Staiger and Souza did another double breakout, with Staiger closer.
In round two Boley used a holeshot to beat T Petitt, Staiger ran an 8.902 to stay ahead of Arthur, and Green got by D Petitt – 8.907 to 8.923.
Semi final time. Staiger nailed Green – 8.910 to 8.921 and Boley had the bye.
The final round was run just before the sun sank in the west. Boley and Staiger. It came down to the starting line as Staiger went red by -.003. Congrats to Dennis Boley. Thanks to Designs Unlimited for their sponsorship.
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.
Ty Anderson, Darral Petitt, Arlyn Staiger, Dennis Boley, Dale Green, Emmett McKillop, Tim Petitt, Rick Dearinger, Ross Souza, Greg Pessemier, and Tony Arthur were the eleven who stayed to race.
Round One – D Petitt got the bye, Dearinger overcame Anderson by a holeshot as both racers went 8.900. Green got by Staiger, T Petitt nipped McKillop, Arthur slid by Boley, and Pessemier beat Souza who fouled out.
Round two had Dearinger and D Petitt in the dueling red lights, with Dearinger winning, T Petitt holeshot Arthur to win and Green got by Pessemier.
The semi’s had T Petitt with the bye and Dearinger running closer to knock Green out.
Dale Green wins another PNSCA Championship! Congratulations to Dale. That makes three in row.
The banquet is probably going to be January 14, 2017. I plan on having it the week after the Division Six banquet, which I believe is January 7, 2017. I will let all racers and sponsors know as soon as I have conformation.
The T shirts by Designs Unlimited were a hit. Get yours before they are gone. The price is $15 a shirt, with the money going to the prize fund.
