Summit E.T. Racing Series - July 22


DeSalvo, BeDell, Bingel Hoist Jr. Shootout Wallys

July 22 - Sunday's event concluded 2 days worth of high intensity, big payout bracket racing action which included the 10K to Win F.X. Caprara Bracket Bash on Saturday. Sunday's event was a regular Summit Racing E.T. Racing Series with the exception of Super Pro and a couple special classes added for the Jr.s and the Susan Koman Draggin for a Cure class. Here's a recap on Sunday's winners. 

Super Pro
The Super Pro class ran a special $2,000 to Win, 1/8th mile, non-points event and it was Bob Belvick taking measure of Josh Speck in the final for the big payday. Bob won the final on the line as his .523 to .554 starting line advantage was more than enough to cover Josh at the top end stripe. Both drivers nailed their dial-ins, each going .001-over with Bob running a 5.001 at 137.13 mph to Josh's 4.961 at 144.21 mph. Some awesome driving in the Super Pro final! Carl Drake Jr. almost had to rent a Brink's truck for the tow home as he fell 2 round wins short of an extremely profitable weekend at the strip!

July 8 - We returned to a regular Summit Racing E.T. Racing Series event on Sunday under clear skies and sunshine. 

78spSuper Pro
The Super Pro final came down to some family bragging rights to the winner as Carl Drake Sr. in his ’67 Chevy raced against his son Carl Jr. (CJ) who was in his dragster. CJ held a .508 to .517 reaction time advantage in the final and won with a 7.543 at 164.20 mph on his 7.55 dial, while Sr. settled for the runner up spot with a 9.082 at 147.46 mph run on his 9.11 dial. Nate Powers drove well all day and was rewarded with a semifinal round finish.

Justin Hardman scored for the second time in three weeks driving his ’95 Camaro to the win by stopping it’s former owner Steve Doss who was in his ’85 Monte Carlo. Justin laid a .509 light on Steve and throttled his way to the win with a 10.562 at 127.08 mph run on his 10.50 dial in. Steve had to settle for his second straight runner up with a .549 initiated, 10.157 at 131.96 mph run on his 10.13. Terry Lee fouled to Justin in the semis.


Summit E.T. Racing Series - July 1

 Theodore Lewis Wins Pro

July 1 - We had another great Sunday for drag racing with plenty of sunshine and a nice breeze that kept the warm temperatures feel not so bad. Today we held our Pro Showdown with the class' top payout on the line. In the final it was Theodore Lewis knocking off last year's Pro Showdown winner Steve Doss in a close, double breakout finale. We also saw Ryan Orizino double up wins in Pro MX and Bike/Sled Trophy classes. 

Super Pro

Super Pro saw Terry Scheirer and James Smith Jr. square off in their Big Block Chevy powered dragsters for their shot at the cash. In the final Terry laid a perfect .500 reaction time on James carding a 7.876 at 170.37 mph run on his 7.84 dial to defeat James who had a very good .516 light and running 7.722 at 173.17 mph on his 7.70 dial for the runner up spot. Westley Cayea was the semifinalist.


In Pro it was Theodore Lewis driving his ’82 Firebird to the big win when he stopped last years Showdown winner Steve Doss in his ’85 Monte Carlo. Theo got the starting line advantage .532 to .553 and he won the double breakout affair with a 10.505 at 128.55 mph run on his 10.51 while Steve was further under with a 10.125 at 133.89 mph run on his 10.15 dial in.
