Onto the rest of the day. First, I want thank Mother Nature for this weekend! This season has been a struggle and there haven't been too many kind words directed at her! The weather for Friday night's Race Your Ride and Sunday's ET Bracket race was spectacular. Great days to be at Route 66!!
The racing started promptly in the morning with the two rounds of Time Trials. Sunday included a Junior Drag Racing League "Fun" race. Their last race of the season was rained out so it was decided to include this. The track appeared to be hooking well.
Steve had the slower car leaving first with Andy trying to catch him. Andy tried a little too hard and broke out giving the win to Steve. However, I'm not sure it would have made much difference when you compare the numbers, Steve .060/14.34/14.342 to Andy's .086/12.58/12.536. This gave Steve the Sportsman Championship. This was Steve's fourth 2019 season final losing three previous times to Paul O'Keefe, #2 in points. Paul went out in the first round today which secured the championship for Steve.
In the "fun" race, it was just a good time! No pressure, No money just racing!
In addition to those championships and photos already mentioned, it was Mike Murray taking the Super Pro Championship.
It was long time Super Pro racer Al Kuefler's birthday and what a birthday show it was! Look at these reaction times:
Round 1 - .006
Round 2 - .000
Round 3 - .000
Round 4 - -.008
Al said he wasn't upset about going red by -.008 because he was so close to another perfect light. He will take that any day!
