This week we have a National event and some div races. Qualifying at the Mile High Nationals is underway.

Randi Lyn Shipp and Scott Burton are in the top half of the Stocker field.

Randi Lyn got the C/SA class win, and Carroll Warling got the SS Auto Combo win. :)

Scott Burton made it all the way to the final round in Stock. But there, one of the 9 sec late model guys cut a great light and Scott had to settle for RU. :(

DENVER - Stock Eliminator Final, Round 6 Eliminations

Carroll Warling made it to the semi final round, where he lost a close one, by 4 inches. :(

Well, Todd Kuhn drove the only Pontiac to make it passed the 2nd round. He made it to round 4. But with the huge field of Stockers at this race, that was not far enuff. Congrats to Todd for his 3 round wins, in a '70 GTO. :)

There's some division races this weekend. One of 'em is the div 5 race in Topeka, KS. I scanned the Stocker list, but didn't spot any Pontiac powered rides. But, I didn't have to look very far down the SS list to find a couple of Pontiacs.

Bill Rink is on top of the list, at over a sec under, with his little GTO ! And Carroll Warling is #6, after 2 qualifying sessions. :)

LODRS 5-4 - Super Stock Qualifying, Session #2 Order

Well, Bill got the 1st round bye run, and Carroll cut a perfect .000 light, so both Pontiacs moved on to round 2. There, Bill cut a perfect .000 light, and Carroll cut an .019 light, but both cars slowed, for some reason. So, both SS Pontiacs are out. :(

S/ST at Topeka

There are 2 Pontiacs on the 1st round winners list, in the Super Street class--10.90 index.

Jason Hennessey and Tim Forshee won their 1st round match-ups, so both Pontiacs moved on to round 2.

LODRS 5-4 - Super Street Round 1 Winners

Jason got the bye run in round 2, because he was the only car to run a perfect 10.900 ET, in round 1. Jason won his 2nd round. :) But Tim lost his. :(

LODRS 5-4 - Super Street Round 2 Eliminations

Jason picked up the round 3 win, with an .015 light. :)

LODRS 5-4 - Super Street Round 3 Eliminations

Well, Jason won round 4, but lost round 5 in a real close, double breakout race. :( But he drove a good race today. :)

This week we got a National event and a div race. At the Lucas Oil Nationals, in Brainerd, there are a couple of 1st gen Birds that are doin good. Randi Lyn Shipp got her C/SA class win yesterday, with her '67 Bird. And she also won her 1st round of elims today. She ran a 10.49 yesterday. That ain't bad for a 400 D-port Stocker, ya'll ! :)

BRAINERD - Stock Eliminator Round 1 Eliminations

And, in Super Gas, there's another girl in a 1st gen. She is Kaylyn Milton. She won 2 rounds today. The 2nd win came with a .003 light. So, these gals are some serious Pontiac powered racers ! smile

BRAINERD - Super Gas Round 2 Eliminations

There are also 2 cars representing Pontiac in Super Stock. There's Bill Rink's little '74 GTO, and Greg Meyer's 3rd gen GT Bird. Both cars won their class yesterday, and their 1st round of elims today. :)
