PNSCA racers have great weekend at Boise

Bob Woodruff had one of his racing goals come together during eliminations on Sunday. One of those goals is to earn an invite to the NHRA JEGS ­Allstar Event. Bob advanced to the third round which gave him the lead in points after trailing Brian Preszler for most of last season. Brian, who is the D6 S/C champ, lost first round giving others a chance to go to Chicago.

The race-within-a-race program for NHRA’s Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series competitors is the NHRA JEGS ­Allstars. Contested at the Route 66 NHRA Nationals in Chicago on June 28-30, the event is reserved for 100 of NHRA’s top ­Sportsman racers. The best racers in ten categories from each of NHRA’s seven geographic regions compete for team and individual ­honors and a share of the $119,000 purse. Racers ­accumulate points for the event at NHRA Lucas Oil divisional races prior to the competition.

Emily Williams, who stopped Bob in the third round, also had a great weekend advancing to the fourth round.

The Morris Family Racing team had four cars competing, Cheryl, Andy, and Kacee in S/C. Dustin Hentges in T/D. Cheryl took out Kacee in the second round on her way to the final for the Wally.

Randy Beck was disappointed with a first round loss in S/C. So he jumped into S/P and brought home that Wally.

Division 6 has a Super Class Shootout series (managed by Dennis Boley) that racers qualify for and compete in prior to Sundays eliminations. At Boise 17 cars entered in the SC shootout. After 2 rounds of qualifying, Dennis takes the top 8 for each class and puts them on the ladder for eliminations in Saturday afternoon’s remaining time runs. When it was all said and done I took home the big check beating Brian Preszler in the final.

Congratulations to everyone!!!
