Summit E.T. Racing Series - July 16

Don Austin - Pro Winner

Don Austin Repeats Pro Win

July 16 - A great, July Sunday of Summit Racing E.T. Series NHRA drag racing at ESTA yesterday. We stayed with our 1/8th mile format as the ground saturation from all the rain this summer dictated so, but that didn't hinder the racing at all. Here's how the final rounds shook out and the boxscores below.

Jeremy Popple - Super Pro Winner

Super Pro
The Super Pro final saw Jeremy Popple score the Super Pro win in a close race over Pete Winfrey. Heather Scheirer and Charles White made it to the semis.

Don Austin returned to the winner circle for the second-straight week with his win over Mike LaRose Jr.  Mike missed a perfect light by a nano-second with a razor-thin - 0.0009 red light, negating a strong 5.415 on his 5.39 dial-in. Don ran nearly identical times from his July 9 Pro win and just .005 seconds off his 6.32 dial to score a .027 package for the win. Matt Consiglio was the lone semifinalist.

Dennis Boston Jr. - Pro MX Winner

Pro MX
Pro MX action saw Dennis Boston getting the double red-light win over David Ashby. David was the first to foul thereby handing the win over to Dennis and the LPC crew. Rob Eastman and Bob Salerno were the semifinalists.

Todd Minerd - Street Money Winner

Street Money
Todd Minerd drove to another Street Money win with a stout .023 package over Jim Smith and his S-10. Kurt Hagan and Steve English scored semifinal finishes.

Don Leppard took the Modified win over Ken Miller.

Jim Pipines - Street Trophy Winner

Street Trophy
Jim Pipines scored the Trophy win with a .003-initiated 7.019 run on his 6.99 dial in his sweet 2016 Corvette to knock out a red-lighting Kurt Hagan and his 2011 Camaro. David Hess was the lone semifinalist.

Bob Salerno - Bike/Sled Trophy Winner

Bike/Sled Trophy
Bob Salerno caught first-time finalist Wendy Eastman napping at the tree and cruised to the Bike/Sled Trophy win. John Kuhfta was the semifinalist.

Natalie Musolino - Jr. Dragster Winner

Jr. Dragster
Natalie Musolino overcame Jonathan Phelp's .015 to .091 reaction time advantage and ran a .003-over 7.903 to drive around Jonathan for the Jr. Dragster win.  AJ Denmark and Jazmyne Short made it to the semis.

That wraps it up for today's action, we'll see you next Sunday.
