For the Fleet Doctor Fall Mini Bracket Series Race #6 and Test & Tune tomorrow, Sunday, October 21st, we are making the decision to officially push back the start time for the day to noon. Our gates will open at 11 AM and we will be getting started on track at noon. We will, also, be doing all of our racing as 1/8 mile. There will not be 1/4 mile racing tomorrow.
In the interest of keeping all of our bikers safe, we have made the decision to cancel today, Saturday, October 6th’s Bike Night presented by Scott Stewart Roofing event. We are bummed that Mother Nature has messed with another Bike Night, but look forward to planning next year’s in the coming months and let you all know when the events will be next year!
Bob Adel is coming to the August Aeroquip Heads Up race looking to set some personal best numbers in the Diamond Pistons Outlaw 10.5 class. His current best is a 4.25 at 175 MPH. The 1993 “Under Pressure” Twin Turbo Mustang is definitely under some pressure with Bob Adel looking for a new personal best.
Brandon Wakeling is one of the Mechanical Heating & Cooling Run What Ya Brung competitors. He ran his personal best ET in July when the 1941 Willys Pro Mod went 4.20 in the 1/8 mile. He said he is feeling unsure and overwhelmed coming into the August event, but we’re sure he’s just being hard on himself because the car always puts on a great show.
Two time VP Racing Drag Radial Champion and current points leader Mike Barran will of course be here with his 1985 Chevy Camaro. This car and driver always perform. We’re never disappointed with the show this duo puts on. Currently Barran’s best pass is a 4.31 at 182 MPH. Mike has 3300 pounds of American made muscle built for one reason and one reason only…. to WIN! The purpose built race car succeeded in June, but went out a little earlier in July. Can it fulfill its lifelong goal and finish at the top this month??
Matt Reese will be bringing his 1988 Ford Mustang in the VP Racing Drag Radial class. With a current personal best of 4.74 at 155 MPH he’s already going fast, but coming into this August edition of our Aeroquip Heads Up Series Reese is feeling positive that he will improve upon his current best. We’re definitely excited to see what he can do.
Jeff Harrington is another racer looking to set a new personal record on Friday night in the Diamond Pistons Outlaw 10.5 class. With all these record seeking racers, the competition is going to be fierce. The heat and humidity might make it a little tough during the day, but when the sun goes down all bets are off. The Harrington crew is looking to take their personal best from a 4.02 at 197.88 MPH into the 3’s. Wow!
A long time participant of the Liberty’s Gears All Motor class will be out on Friday night as usual. Dan Ostgen driving the 1969 Camaro that has gone 7.99 and 170.6 MPH. They’re feeling confident coming into this mid-season race. We don’t blame them for the confidence as they’ve been closing the gap between themselves and the top of the field during the 2018 season.
