On Sunday January 8th we gathered at Borio’s Rest. in Cicero to honor the 2011 Champions and hand out some special awards. The banquet turned out very nice with about 130 people in attendance.
We had picture plaques made up for the first place finishers in the Summit E.T. Points Series. Vince Musolino won Super Pro, Mike LaRose won Pro, Chrissy Klein and Keith Miller tied for the top spot in Pro MX, Anthony Zangari defended his Street title successfully, Heather Scheirer won Modified and Dick Aversa also successfully defended his Street Trophy title. Bike/Sled Trophy ended in a three-way tie between Chrissy Klein, Ryan Orizino and Kevin Wuest.
In the Jr. Dragster ranks Justin Hardman repeated in the Jr. “A” class capping off a great Jr. Dragster career. We had a three-way tie in the Jr. “B” class with Ron Klein Jr. and siblings Gracie and Jacob Snyder sharing the crown.
