Summit E.T. Racing Series - October 5

Summit Racing E.T. Series Enters in Final Leg of 2014 Season

Kimberly Klein - Modified Winner

October 5 - We raced today in the 1/8 mile format due to all the rain we got on Saturday coupled with the cool temperatures which made track drying efforts very difficult. But even after a brief afternoon drizzle we were able to complete another Summit E.T. point’s race.

Check out the Final Round Boxscores Here.

Matt Spisak - Super Pro Winner

Super Pro
Super Pro racing action saw Matt Spisak in his ’67 Camaro stop the red hot Tom Belvick who was in his familiar Chevy powered S&W dragster.

Tom took over the point’s lead with today’s effort.

 Justin Hardman - Pro Winner

In Pro the final round came down to the current #1 and #2 drivers in the class when point’s leader Justin Hardman in Steve Doss’s Firebird squared off against Anthony Zangari in is Camaro. Justin was able to win this one with his .559 initiated 7.067 at 92.59 mph run which was right on his 7.06 dial in.

 Bob Salerno - Pro MX Winner

Bob Salerno on his ’06 Ski-Doo took over the Pro MX point’s lead today with his win over a red lighting Derek Eastman on his ’00 Ski-Doo. Bob ran 6.056 at 110.27 mph on his 5.93 dial in for the win. Derek had a .403 foul and shut off.

Howard Roberts - Street Money Winner

Street Money
Howard Roberts returned to the winners circle today claiming the Street Money win driving his ’84 Firebird around current point’s leader Jordan Reader in his ’88 Ranger. Jordan had the starting line advantage .563 to .574 but Howard nailed his 7.50 dial with a 7.508 at 89.08 mph pass while Jordan ran slightly off his 7.59 prediction with a 7.641 at 89.95 mph. Former Jr. Dragster racer Jake Lipke made it all the way to the semi’s in his big car debut.

Modified
The Modified final came down to two more former Jr. Dragster drivers as Kimberly Klein won for the second race in a row in her dragster stopping Becca Searles who was driving her Mustang. This one was over early after Becca lit the red light with a .470 but she still ran close to her 7.09 dial with a 7.109 at 96.16 mph. Kim would have been very tough to beat though as she carded the best winning reaction time of all the classes today with her .509 light and then she ran right on her 4.91 dial with a 4.918 at 139.44 mph blast. Becca took over the points lead with her r/u finish. Mike Parker was the semifinalist.

 Codi Kennedy Street Trophy Winner

Street Trophy
Street Trophy saw Codi Kennedy driving her ’79 Camaro to her first ever win after she stopped Shawn Bradwell in his ’14 Nissan. Cody who’s only been racing for a few weeks had a .632 light and ran 9.904 at 67.57 mph on her 10.00 dial in. Shawn had a .743 light and ran further under his 10.60 dial with a 10.353 at 72.60 mph to settle for the runner up spot. Mike Holifield made it to the semi’s in his racing debut.

Kevin Wuest - Bike/Sled Trophy Winner

Bike/Sled Trophy
Kevin Wuest won the Bike/Sled Trophy class on his ’97 Polaris stopping MX winner Bob Salerno. Kevin held the r.t. advantage .532 to .612 and he won with his 6.560 at 95.51 mph run on his 6.55 dial. Bob ran well off his 6.16 prediction with a 6.257 at 106.12 mph runner up effort. Current point’s leader Sudsy Eastman made it to the semi’s as well as Matt Luke.

Jr. Dragster
In Jr. Dragster action Jazymne Short was gunning for her first win but she had to face multi time winner Dunham Hall in the final round. This one was over fast when Jazymne red lighted with a .450 bulb and only ran 9.678 at 66.29 mph on her 9.41 dial. Dunham collected another win and held his point’s lead and his numbers were .587 at the tree with a 7.900 at 82.58 mph pass on his 7.91 dial. Casey Bedell was the semifinalist.

That does it for today’s racing action. We still are scheduled for two more point’s day’s so we’ll see if we can get them in and see if the leaders can hold onto their leads.
