Boston Comes Out of Hiatus to Score Shootout Win
August 12 - Sunday's event was a race to honor our friend and fellow racer Dan Cerio Jr. who was tragically taken away from us in a racing accident earlier this year. Danny was an accomplished racer who achieved success in both the motorcycle and sled classes here at ESTA and elsewhere. The race, organized by Freddie Jacobs, included Street Bikes and asphalt sled racers all vying for the $2,000 first place prize money and numerous special awards donated by various sponsors. We also ran our regular E.T. Series classes, but the event was a non-points weekend.
Dan Cerio Memorial Street Bike/Sled Shootout
Dennis Boston has taken a hiatus from racing recently, but made his return to the ESTA quarter a mighty profitable one as he defeated Chrissy Klein in the final round. Dennis gave up .022 on the tree to Chrissy, .584 to .562, but ran a solid run of 6.141 at 99.75 mph on his 6.10 dial to drive around Chrissy for the big win. Chrissy fell off her 6.19 dial-in when she ran a 6.31 at 105.86 mph pass and settled for the runner-up finish. The last two remaining bikes in the field got knocked out in the semifinals when event organizer Freddie Jacobs and Slaven Peric piloted their rides to the semis in the 48 entry field. It was a great race and we're sure that Danny was smiling down on us!
