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.

Rain Hampers Woodburn Opener

Hello race fans and racers.  The 2016 season is upon us.

The Super Comp Association had the first race of the year at Woodburn Dragstrip. The Saturday race was sponsored by Delta Camshaft and the Sunday race by Pessemier’s Auto.

I am sorry that I could not attend because of commitments in at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

TyAndersonThe turnout was poor.  Only one racer showed up to race.  Ty Anderson was the winner on Saturday.  The rain came again and Sunday’s race was cancelled.

I want to take this time to thank all of our sponsors, especially Delta Camshaft and Pessemier’s Auto.

A special thanks to Mark and Karen Gillespie for their assistance while I could not attend.

The next race is May 28 and 29th at Renegade Raceway. 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.

Bremerton Race Date Change

It is getting closer to race season.

I have some bad news and some good news. The Handlers Racing Association, who runs Bremerton Raceway, lost the weekend we were supposed to race there. That weekend was May 13, 14, and 15. That is the bad news. The good news is they did acquire the weekend of July 1, 2, and 3.

So I am moving the May 13/14 race at Bremerton Raceway to July 2 and 3. I know that might be a problem for some people who had plans for the 4th of July weekend, but that the only date that fit in with our schedule.

So here is the revised schedule for 2016.

Apr 23 – Woodburn Dragstrip
Apr 24 – Woodburn Dragstrip
May 28 – Renegade Raceway
May 29 – Renegade Raceway
Jun 11 – Pacific Raceways
Jul 2 – Bremerton Raceway
Jul 3 – Bremerton Raceway
Jul 9 – Pacific Raceways
Jul 23 – Mission Raceway
Jul 30 – Pacific Raceways
Aug 13 – Pacific Raceways
Sep 24 – Woodburn Dragstrip
Sep 25 – Woodburn Dragstrip

We will still count best 10 of 13 races for season championship.

Dale Green wins the Championship

The final race of the season – – again. The setting – – Woodburn Dragstrip. The stakes – – year end championship.

Once again the Super Comp Association descended on Woodburn Dragstrip to do battle. Friday was kind of weird day, sunny but dark clouds in the west. Saturday morning (early) it rained, but by 9 am the sun was out and the track was ready. Six racers signed up for the event. Greg Pessemier, Dennis Boley, Dale Green, Tom Gresham, Devon Hilton, and Ross Souza. Qualifying took place and then first round. Greg Pessemier, Dale Green, and Tom Gresham got the win light first round. Greg got the bye into the final and Tom took out Dale. They had identical reaction times, but Tom ran closer – 8.946 to a 8.965 to advance to the final. Then it got dark. There were so many oil downs and other things; that we ran out of daylight. So, the plan was to do the final on Sunday. Sunday came and during the second qualifying run, Tom and Greg did battle. Tom came out on top and took the points lead. But wait, Sunday’s race was still to come. Dale had a chance.

Sunday’s race had the same six racers. Tom had a chance to lock up the season first round because he had to run Dale. But Dale managed to take Tom out with an 8.907 to an 8.892. Tom had the better light, but broke out. Bummer for Tom. Tom still had a chance to hold on to his lead. In other first round action Dennis lost to Ross and Devon lost to Greg. Dale had the bye in the Semi’s and Greg ran closer to the number to take out Ross. So, on to the final. All Dale had to do was win the race to win the championship. Tom was hoping Greg would win, I am sure. After a bunch more oil downs and stuff, the final two came to the line. The sun was setting in the west as they staged. Dale got the holeshot .019 to .034 and managed to stay ahead of Greg, running an 8.920 to an 8.910. So 2015 season came to a close. Dale Green wins it all again.

I want to take this time to thank all of our sponsors and hope to see them come back next year. Also, I want thank all the racer input and help during the year. A special thanks to Mark Gillespie for his help as the Vice President. We hope to have better things for 2016.

I am currently planning on having the 2015 Awards Banquet January 16, 2016.

Woodburn Race Postponed

The final race of the season. Excitement was in the air. Super Comp racers headed to Woodburn Dragstrip on Friday, August 28 to do battle for the championship. But Mother Nature had a different idea. The five racers, Dale Green, Tom Gresham, Dale Hrenko, Greg Pessemier, and Dennis Boley, woke on Saturday to a very weird Woodburn day. The wind was blowing straight down the track at 20+ mph with gusts to 40. It had rained and it rained off and on until the race was cancelled for Saturday.

The five racers got together and decided to run a double header on Sunday. Then hamburgers and hot dogs were grilled and racers and significant others sat around and gabbed for hours. Sunday would be a new great day. Except it wasn’t. The fearsome five woke up to rain, rain, and then some more rain. At least the wind had gone away.

So the race day was cancelled. Because of the importance of the points, a tie for first place, the five racers agreed to come back to Woodburn on September 26 and 27 and hold the races. It was agreed by the five; which included the President (me), the Board Advisor (Dale Hrenko), and the Vice President (Mark Gillespie); that the race would be open to anyone that weekend, but the only racers who can earn points are the five who made the tow to this race. So, anyone can come race for the money and fun, but only Dale Green, Tom Gresham, Dale Hrenko, Greg Pessemier, and Dennis Boley are able to gain points.

Our final two races are September 26 and 27 at Woodburn Dragstrip. We will have a picnic at my trailer Saturday evening. Mark and I will provide the hamburgers and hot dogs. Please bring anything else you want.

I am currently planning on having the 2015 Awards Banquet January 16, 2016.

Pacific Race 8

On Friday, August 14 the Seattle weather did not look to good for racing on the next day. But, come Saturday morning the rain had stopped and there was a light cloud cover. Super Comp racers came to Pacific Raceways by the dozen. This was the eighth race for the Pacific Northwest Super Comp Association. The racers were: Tory Lea, Emmett McKillop, Mark Gillespie, Dale Hrenko, Tim Petitt, Mark Johnson, Randy Beck, Greg Pessemier, Tony Burton, Marion Hurst, Tom Gresham, and Darral Petitt were the dozen gunning for the gold. Welcome aboard Tory Lea, Marion Hurst, and Tony Burton.

Track conditions were great, thanks to the team effect of the Pacific Raceways crew.

Tory Lea grabbed the low qualifier spot with a 8.903, just edging out Emmet McKillop. On the top half of the ladder, Darral started his road to the final with a holeshot win over Mark Johnson. A triple zero light didn’t give Mark much room. Then Darral knocked out the #1 qualifier and then had to face the other Petitt in the semifinal. Meanwhile Randy Beck caught a break in round one, when his opponent was a no show. Then on a double breakout run, he was closer than Ed Hauter to take the win. Semis saw Randy and Tom Gresham battle it out. Identical .027 lights made for a steller race. Another double break out. 8.897 was .002 closer than Tom’s 8.895, putting Randy in the final. I did not get the final round stats, but Randy was the winner, and Darral the runner up.

Our final two races are August 29 and 30 at Woodburn Dragstrip. We will have a picnic at my trailer Saturday evening. Mark and I will provide the hamburgers and hot dogs. Please bring anything else you want.
