Season Ends in Woodburn

Six weeks have passed since the last PNSCA race happened at Pacific Raceways, but the battle for the championship was far from over. Emmett McKillop was on top, but there were a couple of racers who could unseat him.  So, we went to Woodburn Dragstrip for the last two races of 2017.  Twelve racers were present. The event sponsor was Design’s Unlimited.

Arlyn Staiger, Dale Green, Darral Petitt, Emmett McKillop, Greg Pessemier, John Theofelis, Mark Gillespie, Tony Arthur, Ty Anderson, Rick Dearinger, Rod Lee, and newcomer (to Super Comp) Diane Petitt were the racers who signed up to race.

After two rounds of qualifying, Diane Petitt was the #1 qualifier with an 8.903. Snap On tools provided the #1 Qualifier Award.

Peninsula Lubricants put a $100 bonus for the best package of the day. That was won by Dale Green in round two. Thanks Rick for the extra bonus.

Round one. Darral Petitt beat a slowing Diane Petitt. Green got a competition single when McKillop was a no-show. Staiger won when Anderson turned on the red light, Gillespie forced Pessemier to break out. Arthur won when Lee fouled out and Theofelis beat Dearinger.

Round two found Arthur beating Gillespie on a holeshot, Green put up a .013 light with an 8.900 to force Petitt to break out, and Staiger got a holeshot on Theofelis and forced him to break out.

In the semifinals, Green had the bye and Staiger beat Arthur on a double breakout race.

In the final, Green needed a win to have a chance to catch McKillop for the Championship. He did just that in a double breakout race against Staiger. Green – 8.893 to Staiger – 8.890.

Thanks to Design’s Unlimited for their sponsorship. Way to go Dale Green

The Championship battle was heating up.

On to Sunday and the final race. This race was sponsored by Pessemier’s Racing Powerglides. McKillop hurt his car on Saturday and could do nothing but sit and wait.

Only nine racers signed up for the race. Arlyn Staiger, Dale Green, Darral Petitt, Greg Pessemier, John Theofelis, Mark Gillespie, Tony Arthur, Ty Anderson, and Rod Lee.

After two rounds of qualifying, Ty Anderson was on top with an 8.906. Snap On tools provided the #1 Qualifier Award.

The only person who could catch McKillop for the Championship was Dale Green. In round one Green put a .000 light on Staiger. But Staiger had already turned on the red light, so the race went to Green. Arthur used a holeshot to beat Theofelis, Petitt used a holeshot to beat Gillespie and Anderson had the bye.  Pessemier was supposed to race Lee, but Lee hurt his car in qualifying and was a no-show.

Five cars left in round two. Anderson used a better light to outlast Arthur, and Petitt killed Green’s shot at a fourth championship by cutting a better light and forcing Green to break out.  Pessemier had the bye.

Semifinal time. Pessemier got to the final by using a .010 reaction time and an 8.918 to beat Anderson and Petitt had the bye.

Final round of the 2017 season. The championship had been decided, but who gets the last competition trophy. In a double breakout race, Pessemier wins with an.8.889 over Petitt’s 8.869. Congratulations to Greg Pessemier and thanks to Pessemier’s Racing Powerglides for the race sponsorship.

Emmett McKillop is the 2017 Season Champion. With Dale Green in second and Darral Petitt in third.

The awards banquet will be January 20, 2018 at the Shilo Inn in Tacoma. Plan on having a good time.

Thanks to everyone for a great year. Hope to see you at the races in 2018.

But, there was a computer glitch and so time trials were stopped.  The track worked very hard, but by 4 pm the timing system was still on the blitz.  At about 5 pm the track thought they had it fixed, but the Association decided to not run until Sunday.  The track ran a test and turn the rest of the evening while the Super Comp and Super Street racers enjoyed a wonderful meal at the Petitt pits.

The racers were called to the lanes for round one. They all showed up and Staiger was in front ready for his bye run.  Alas, that pesky bad luck stuff happened and he could not get the car to start. Bad Deal for Arlyn. Pessemier had Green, a repeat from Yakima and Pessemier prevailed again due to Green turning on the red lite.

Wilcox won against Thornton. Schmanke was closer than Gillespie on a double breakout – 8.897 to 8.852. And Theofelis won when Johnson was a no show.

Round two started with Schmanke using a .009 to force Pessemier to break out. Petitt had the bye. Then McKillop had a single due to Staiger not making first round. Wilcox beat Theofelis.

In the semi’s, Pettit beat a red lite from Wilcox.  Then McKillop used a huge holeshot to beat Schmanke.

The final.  McKillop against Petitt. McKillop had a .025 lite to Petitt’s .019. At the finish line, McKillop with a 8.902 to the 8.910 of Petitt.  McKillop with the win. Thanks to C&C Olympic Heating for their sponsorship. Congrats to Emmett McKillop.

First Race of the Year at Woodburn

Winter came last October and stayed and stayed and stayed and stayed. Just when we thought things looked bleakest the sun popped out at Woodburn Dragstrip. Super Comp racers from the Northwest gathered for the first race of the 2017 season. The race was sponsored by Delta Camshaft.

Ty Anderson, Darral Petitt, Arlyn Staiger, Dale Green, Emmett McKillop, Tony Arthur, Josh Schmanke, Andy Morris, David Thornton, Tom Bachand, Mark Johnson, Mark Gillespie, and John Theofelis were the thirteen who showed up to race.

Josh Schmanke was #1 with an 8.904. Snap On tools provided the #1 Qualifier Award.

Round one – Morris had a holeshot win over Gillespie, Johnson beat McKillop in a double breakout, Petitt beat Thorton, Bachand had a win over a broken Theofelis, Arthur was closer with than Staiger, Green was the winner when Anderson went red, and Schmanke had the bye.

Round two had Morris with a holeshot win over Schmanke, Petitt and Arthur had identical reaction times, but Petitt was closer the index, Johnson had a competition single over the no show of Bachand, and Green had the bye.

In the semi’s Morris used a .004 reaction time to force Petitt to break out, and Green used a .008 to force Johnson to break out. Green was still in Super Pro, but he had the bye in that quarter final, so we got set to do the final. Green had the better light, but took too much stripe and broke out with an 8.896 to Morris’s winning 8.903. Thanks to Delta Camshaft for their sponsorship. Congrats to Andy Morris.

Sunday – a new day, a new race. The same thirteen racers geared up for battle. Due to car count, there was only one qualifying run.

The air must have been better, because 6 racers broke out during qualifying. That left Mark Johnson as the number one guy with an 8.922. Thanks to Snap On tools for the #1 Qualifier prize.

Round one started. Gillespie let Anderson get around him at top end. Morris was a no show, giving the win to Theofelis, Petitt fouled against Arthur, Johnson had the bye. Schmanke wasted a .000 light to let Thornton have the win. Staiger broke out against McKillop and Green bested Bachand by breaking out less.

In round two Johnson red light against Theofelis, McKillop fell to Green’s perfect 8.900, Thornton broke giving Anderson the win and Arthur had the bye.

Semi final time. Green used a holeshot to beat Arthur and Anderson was a little late to give Theofelis the win.

In the final, it was a double breakout race. Theofelis with an 8.883 to Green’s 8.873. Congratulations to John Theofelis and a big thank you to Stroh’s Automotive for the race sponsorship.

Our next race is May 27/28 at Renegade Raceway.

Banquet Report and 2017 Schedule

Hope everyone had a Merry Christmas and the New Year is starting out great!!!!

The Pacific Northwest Super Comp Association Banquet was held January 21, 2017.  It was at the Shilo Inn in Tacoma.  Everyone who attended had a good time, lots of racing bs was discussed, and everyone won a great door prize.  A big thank you to the sponsors who donated the door prizes – Westbay Auto Parts, Snap-On Tools, Honest Performance, Designs Unlimited, K&N Filters, DG Machine, A-1 Performance, J Bond & Sons, Seeitimagery, and Spring Fling Million.

We had a general meeting at 5:00 pm.  We discussed the 2016 season, the upcoming season, current rules and other things.  The rules will not change for 2017.  Everyone seemed happy about the 2016 season.

One thing that will happen is the addition of Super Street to our races.  I had a meeting with about 25 SST racers prior to our meeting, and there was a positive feeling about adding SST to the schedule.  The SST racers will find their own sponsors, pay their own fees, but will be a part on our group.  They will race the same dates and racetracks as us.  Welcome aboard SST racers.

We have 13 races again this year and 10 will count for the championship.
