Dark Cloud Dampens 2012 E.T. Series Opener
May 6 - We started our 2012 Summit E.T. Points season off today with plenty of sunshine and decent temps. Unfortunately Saturday night we were hit with some terrible news concerning one our Pro MX riders.
“Little Danny,” Dan Cerio was tragically taken away from his family and friends while competing at a Pro Outlaw snowmobile drag race in Martin, Michigan. While there are not enough words that I can write to diminish the impact of this loss on the Cerio family, I just want to let them know that they are in all of our thoughts and Danny will be missed by all of us.
In Super Pro it was Tom Belvick in his ’04 S&W dragster taking care of Scott Forbes who was driving Iggy Falcone’s recently completed ’62 Pontiac Tempest. Tom won with a .555 light and ran a 7.782 at 171.65 mph on his 7.76 dial in. Scott lit the red light with a close .498 bulb and settled for the runner up spot with a 10.476 at 130.01 mph run on his 10.45 dial. Bryan Backus was the semifinalist in his ’82 Cutlass.
Terry Lee drove his Chevy powered ’89 Mustang to the Pro win by stopping Mike LaRose who had to settle for the runner up spot for the second straight week. Both drivers ran under their dial-ins with Terry running a 10.492 at 126.14 mph on his 10.50 dial, while Mike ran a 10.289 at 129.21 mph on his 10.30. Steve Doss and Rob Forbes were the semifinalists.
