Pacific Summer Fun

Howdy from the great city of Port Orchard. Time to write another tale of Super Comp racing at its finest.

Race nine and ten were held at Pacific Raceways and the weather for once cooperated. The race was sponsored by Kelly’s Auto Repair of Auburn.

Eighteen racers came to the quarter mile track. Brian Schmanke, Chuck Linne, Dale Green, Darral Petitt, Dave Secondi, Dave Thornton, Diane Petitt, Emmett McKillop, Greg Linne, Greg Taylor, Jack Stutler, John Theofelis, Kelley Cavar, Mark Loftis, Megan Gaynor, Marion Hurst, Lane Cavar, and Danny Hauter were the ones to face each other on the track.

We had two great qualifying sessions and Greg Taylor went 8.901 to collect the #1 prizes from Snap On tools.

Ok time to start racing. First round started with Secondi taking out second place points racer, G Linne. Then Loftis nailed the points leader, McKillop, to the tree and went 8.909 for the win. Hurst fouled out against Taylor, then Green forced Thornton to break out. Gaynor lost to Diane Petitt via the red light. Hauter ran closer to the number than K Cavar on a double break out race. C Linne went -.002 to lose to L Cavar .005 green. Schmanke had some trouble and Stutler took the win light. And Theofelis ran into Darrel Petitt’s 8.900 and lost. The points battle is really getting tight.

In round two, we found Stutler and Secondi matched up. Stutler was somewhat late and wasted a good 8.901 to lose to Secondi. Then the Petitt’s matched up. Son showed mom how to do it. He went better on the tree and 8.902 for force mom to break out. Loftis beat Green on a double break out race. Then L Cavar won when Hauter went red. Taylor had the bye.

Moving on to round three, Secondi had the bye. Taylor went 8.894 but won because Darral Petitt went red. Loftis lost a close one to L Cavar. 8.905 to 8.907.

In the semi final round L Cavar had the bye. Taylor went to the final round via a red light by Secondi.

Final round time – L Cavar with a .029 light and a slower et took the win. Taylor was a little late and could not get around Cavar. Way to go Lane Cavar. Thanks to Kelly’s Auto Repair and Snap On tools. Let’s go to Sunday.

We lost one racer due to electrical problems, but we gained two new ones.

Brian Schmanke, Dale Green, Darral Petitt, Dave Secondi, Dave Thornton, Diane Petitt, Emmett McKillop, Greg Linne, Greg Taylor, Jack Stutler, John Theofelis, Kelley Cavar, Mark Loftis, Megan Gaynor, Marion Hurst, Lane Cavar, Ty Anderson, Amanda Larson, and Danny Hauter spent their Sunday at the track doing what they love.

After two qualifying sessions, Darral Petitt found himself on top with an 8.901. Stroh’s Automotive was the race sponsor and Snap On tools provided the #1 prize.

We started round one with McKillop losing a close double break out to Taylor. Then Green forced Hurst to break out for the win. Loftis lost to Secondi. Stutler went red against Anderson. G Linne moved to round two when K Cavar could run the number. L Cavar went 8.891 to Hauter’s 8.854 for the win. Theofelis went 8.901 to beat Thornton. Gaynor won went Larson went red. Schmanke had a great light but slowed giving the win to Diane Petitt. Darral Petitt had the bye.

Round two started with Diane Petitt losing to G Linne. Then Darral Petitt took out Anderson – 8.915 to 8.919. Green moved on when Gaynor broke out. Secondi moved when Taylor broke out. L Cavar and Theofelis had a double break out race, with L Cavar winning.

In round three, Darral Petitt had a better light than Green and won, even thou both went 8.915. Starting line makes the difference! Then L Cavar and G Linne both had .012 lights, but Cavar went .006 quicker for the win. Secondi had the bye.

Then Secondi went to the final because Petitt went too quick and L Cavar had the bye.

So, could L Cavar make it two in a row.  Well, Secondi had something to say about that. He went .004 and 8.907 to stop Cavar in his tracks. Great job Secondi. Thanks again to Stroh’s Automotive and Snap On tools.

Only two more races in 2020.

Our next race is at Woodburn Dragstrip on September 19 and 20.
