What another spectacular day, both racing and weather! Sunday, saw racing in five categories, Super Pro Box, Super Pro No Box, Pro Eliminator, Street Eliminator and Sportsman Modified Street. This was a National Dragster Challenge race so the pewter Wally's were awarded. The racing started early with the usual two timed runs before eliminations started. Before eliminations could start there was a little business to attend to from the previous day. The Super Pro Box and No Box winners had to face off for the money. The two orange Chevrolets of Ed Bandevowicz Sr. (box) and Billy Curtis Jr. (No Box) going head to head. This is where it gets sticky for me because I lost my notebook with the information as to who won. I believe it was Ed over Billy. I will confirm this today. In some other unfinished business, there was a tie in the Motorcycle Class for the right to represent Byron at Indy. There was a runoff won by Kurt Clark and he was awarded with a Wally.
With all the unfinished business taken care of, it was full speed ahead for the elimination rounds.
Again, like the previous day, we were competing with the setting sun to get all the categories completed. We got everything done and the Wally's awarded, except the Super Box vs No Box faceoff. That will be completed on Monday.
Here are the National Dragster Challenge winners:
Super Pro Box- Derek Degnitz
Super Pro No Box- Shaun Havey
Pro Eliminator- Dan Roth
Street Eliminator- Brandon Phillips
Sportsman Modified Street- Fred Trombley
Brandon Phillips was in two finals, Street Eliminator (won) and Sportsman Modified Street (lost). Brandon lost in Sportsman to Fred Trombley who took home his third career Wally. The racing has been so good, I can't wait to see what happens today.
