Summit E.T. Racing Series - September 24

September 24 Race Results

A Sunday Scorcher for E.T. and Heads Up Racing

September 24 - From cool air on the 10th, and a week off for the bracket finals, ESTA racers and staff had to deal with blistering temperatures and stifling humidity to celebrate the beginning of Autumn! The best summer weather in 2017 happened in Fall! In addition to our regular Summit Racing E.T. Series event, we held our annual Buffalo vs. Syracuse Heads-Up Outlaw Shootout that also included some racers from Albany area and a Limited Street 5.50 Index event.  Here's how the final rounds shook out and the boxscores below.

Vince Musolino - Super Pro Winner

Super Pro
What an awesome Super Pro final that Vince Musolino and Carl Drake Jr. put on for us today! Dead even at the start with both drivers posting identical .006 reaction times with Carl getting a slight head start with his 4.91 dial-in. Vince dialed up a 4.53 on his American Race Car chassis dragster and reeled Carl in with a 4.533 at 147.44 mph winning run. Carl was just a tick off with his 4.914 at 137.51 mph runner-up effort. Jack Reome was the semifinalist.

Terry Lee - Pro Winner

Terry Lee got the Pro win when Skip Zegarelli bulbed in his '68 Camaro. Rick Dauenhauer and Jim Erecitano were the semifinalists.

Bob Salerno - Pro MX Winner

Pro MX
Pro MX action saw Bob Salerno score a red light win over Jim Collins. Ryan Orizino and Darrell Aubin made it to the semis.

Clarence Spady - Street Money Winner

Street Money
Clarence Spady defeated Steve Seelman Jr. in the Street Money final and removed the "bookmarked" name of Howard Roberts from the Street Money win column after a 4 week win streak by Mr. Roberts! Rick Vose was the lone semifinalist.

Gary Rolfe Jr. - Modified Winner

Gary Rolfe Jr. got the Modified win over Jim Giordano when Jim went red at the starting line in their final round match-up. Marietta Derfuss was the lone semifinalist.

Steve Seelman Jr. - Street Trophy Winner

Street Trophy
Steve Seelman Jr. won the "family feud" over his dad Steve Seelman Sr. when Sr. exercised too much authority at the finish line and broke out with a 9.680 on his 9.72 dial-in. Kurt Hagen drove to a semifinal finish.

Brian Moulton - Bike/Sled Winner

Bike/Sled Trophy
Brian Moulton got the breakout win over Darrell Aubin in their Bike/Sled Trophy final round match. Keith Miller made it to the semis.

Jimmy O'Toole - Jr. Dragster Winner

Jr. Dragster
Jimmy O'Toole got the Jr. Dragster win over AJ Denmark. Kimberlee Snell was the lone semifinalist.


That wraps it up for today's action. Next up on Sunday, October 1st is our annual Stock/Super Stock event plus American Muscle Pro Stick and our regular E.T. Series schedule.
