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.
The 1979 Camaro of Chris Schultetus that competes in the VP Racing Drag Radial class with Greg Seher behind the wheel has previously run 4.68 and 154 MPH. The team says they feel really confident that they have what it takes to better their personal best this month. On top of that, they’re really feeling like they’ve got something for the boosted cars. There’s only one way to find out: come watch them go head to head with them.
The 1969 Diamond Pistons Outlaw 10.5 Camaro of Joel Wensley is FAST. The best run in the car is a 4.12 at 189 MPH. Joel Wensley said his team is “like the Jeffesons…. MOVIN ON UP!” They are looking to set a new record this Friday. All this record chasing is going to turn into a hell of a show for the fans!
Big Booty Judy will be on the property Friday night competing in the Mechanical Heating & Cooling Run What Ya Brung class. Ryan Hill who drives the car is feeling nothing but excitement. The best run in the car is a 4.09 at 177 MPH in the 1/8 mile. Who can blame him for feeling nothing but excited?? Although, most people might feel nervous behind the wheel of a car with that much power. Luckily, we have some of the best drivers around, like Ryan Hill, participating in the Aeroquip Heads Up series and they are more than willing to put on stellar show for the rest of us.
Tony Petrovski pilots the 1992 Ford Mustang Notchback with 598 cubic inches under the hood, that is owned by him and Riste Pancevski. This Liberty’s Gears All Motor machine has run 7.84 and 175 MPH. The P&P Motorsports Race Team says they are going to try to be more consistent this event. With runner up finishes at both races this season, they seem to be finishing pretty consistently already, but we know they want to see those 7.8 passes every time. With two of the smaller All Motor trophies, they’re looking for the big one this month.
Ground Control Property Services Motor City Muscle Challenge competitor, David Burke is feeling some nervous excitement coming into this event. How could you not feel some nervousness and excitement when you might stand the car up like that??? We’re sure that gets his adrenaline pumping. The 1994 Camaro Z28 565 N/A car named “The Punisher” has gone 8.64 at 159 MPH in the 1/4 mile.
Rick Reynolds will be out in the 1983 Cutlass competing in the very popular, newest addition to the series, Holbrook Racing Engines Outlaw 632 class. The Cutlass’s best pass to date is a 4.80 at 153 MPH.

The Liberty’s Gears All Motor final was a battle of the Mustangs, the 2014 Mustang of Vince Khoury lined up next to the 1992 Mustang of Tony Petrovski. The win went to Vince Khoury who went 7.657 at 179.20 MPH. Runner up Tony Petrovski, who also runner upped in June, ran a 7.849 at 174.45 MPH.

Amsoil Open Comp, while not a Heads Up class, is one of the toughest classes with the tightest competition. In the 56 car field, the bump spot to qualify was an .03345. The first 25 qualifiers were .00 something. When we say its tough competition, we’re not just saying it, we mean it. Even with all this tough competition last night’s winner Joe Cicalo has managed to win BOTH events this year. Off the line, it wasn’t clear who would win the race runner up Mitchell Hinton’s .033 reaction time was right there with Cicalo’s .037 reaction time. Down at the finish line, Hinton broke out giving the win over to Joe Cicalo.
The Diamond Pistons Outlaw 10.5 win went to #3 qualifier Chris Cadotto who ran a 4.448 at 165.37 MPH. Runner up John Burkett’s best pass of the night was a 4.541 at 158.02 MPH.
