The eighth race of the Fleet Doctor Bracket Points Series was this past Sunday. It was a race-filled couple days where many families got to camp out for the weekend. We had bonuses going on Saturday & Sunday with Saturday’s purses being increased thanks to some of our sponsors like Fleet Doctor, Amsoil, Masta Performance Pro, McCormack Racing, and Rocky’s Pit Stop. Sunday the track sweetened the pot by adding on a Gold Card for the rest of the season to each of the four winners in addition to the usual payout.
McCormack Racing Sportsman winner, Chris Klein, was .015 which gave him a great start to taking out Tony McKinney in the final round. Klein was on the brakes and ran an 11.568 on his 11.50 dial in while McKinney broke out by .004.
In the S&S Customs Super Pro Motorcycle class, Joe Novak Sr. and Mike Mullendore lined up in the final round. Novak Sr. won the race and the Gold Card, but the runner up finish gave Mullendore quite the jump in the points landing him in second place after this week.
In the final round of Insurance Man Super Pro, two NHRA Division 3 champions lined up in the final when Carl Keil and Tim Buckley faced off. Keil left the line first with a .008 while Buckley left second with an .036. A 4.889 finish on his 4.87 dial in was good enough for the win for Carl Keil.
Chuck Lewis, another previous NHRA Division 3 champion, won the Masta Performance Pro category for the second week in a row. Runner up, Jonathon Chatman, left the line first with a -.002 red light. Lewis left second with an -.011 red light. Lucky for Lewis, we have not implemented TruStart or he would have handed the win over to Chatman. Both drivers ran on their dial ins, Chatman with a 4 and Lewis with a 9, it would’ve been a close race had they both been green!
