Summit E.T. Racing Series - June 24

Brad Perkins - 5K Winner Saturday

Perkins Scores The Design Joint 5K Saturday Purse

June 24 - Here's how day one went for the "Design Joint Bottom Bulb Bash". We got pounded with rain overnight so thank you to everyone that came out and had to deal with the very wet pit conditions. In the main event it was Brad Perkins in his '79 Camaro taking on Steve Doss in his '85 Monte Carlo. Brad laid a .005 light on Steve and he cruised to a winning 6.841 at 98.92 mph on his 6.81 dial to claim the title and the five grand that came with it. Steve had a respectable .529 light and his car reached for the sky and he ran off his 6.41 dial and settled for the runner up spot with a 6.439 at 103.46 mph effort. Jason Hemingway made it to the semis in his '87 Camaro, losing to Doss.

Mark Talmadge - High Roller Winner

High Roller
The High Roller final round came down to Mark Talmadge in his "trusty" '75 Vega squaring off with Justin Hardman in his late model Camaro. Justin was .009 and .007 at the tree in the prior rounds, but he leaned on it too hard in the final and came up -.004 red and that was that as Mark clicked it off and claimed the coveted win. Don Austin lasted until the semi's losing to Justin and the aforementioned Brad Perkins lost to Mark in the other semifinal.

We ran a Gamblers race also and Matt Hines drove his Malibu Wagon to the win defeating Mike Scribani in his Camaro. In a very tight final, Matt had a .042 light and ran 6.555 at 102.98 mph on his 6.56, while Mike had a .044 light and ran 6.225 at 109.80 mph on his 6.23. Anthony Zegarelli was the semifinalist.

Day 2 started out with sunshine then we had a brief rain delay early in the afternoon. We continued, but we got some rain again around 4:30 and the decision was made to split the winnings. In the day 2 Bottom Bulb Bash we got down to five drivers: Mark Dobie, Dale Gauthier, Sam DeMario ll, Mike DeMario and John Cira Jr.

Carl Drake Jr. And Ron Klein split the Box race winnings and Messiah Hart won the Jr. Dragster final over Alexis Collins.
