Another Big Weekend

Well, we got another busy weekend of racing goin on. There is a national event and several div races, including some div bracket finals. The 1st day of the div 2 race got rained out. :(

LODRS 2-6 - Rain Turns Two-Day Event Into One-Day Event

But, I'm happy to report that Brad Burton won Stock at the div 7 race, with his '72 Formula Bird. :bannana:

3 of the 6 cars in the semi-final round were Pontiac powered. :) Scott and Brad Burton had to run each other. :(

LODRS 7-5 - Stock Eliminator Round 4 Eliminations

Brad made it to the final round, where he cut a .004 light, and ran an 11.154 on an 11.15 dial-in, for the win. :thumbsup:

LODRS 7-5 - Stock Eliminator Final, Round 6 Eliminations

He also made it to the 5-car quarter final round with his Pontiac powered GT Super Stock 3rd gen Bird. Hey, Brad had a good day ! :cool:

Div 7

OK, final elims of the 2nd race of the div 7 doubleheader are today. Qualifying for this race took place yesterday. And, I'm happy to report that after the final round of qualifying, a Pontiac powered car is #1 on both the Stock and Super Stock list. :bannana:

AND, 4 of the top 7 Stockers have old school Pontiac power. :cool

AND, there are NO Chevy powered cars in the top 8. :lol:

Leo Glasbrenner is #1 in Stock, with his '68 Bird.

Carroll Warling is #1 in Super Stock, with his '74 Lemans.

Well, there were not any more big Pontiac winners on Sunday. But Brad Burton did make it down to the final 6 cars, in Stock. The guy he ran made his best pass of the day, cutting a .009 light and running his dial-in. It's hard to beat a run like that. :(

Congrats to Brad and the other Pontiac guys for having a good weekend representing Pontiac power ! :)

Elims At The Dutch

Well, the bad news is that we did not have a Pontiac winner, at the Dutch.

BUT, the news ain't all bad. Todd Hoven made all the way to the semi-final round. And it took 5 round wins to get there.

DUTCH CLASSIC - Stock Eliminator Round 6 Eliminations

And, Vic Santos took his #1 qualified 3rd gen Super Stock Bird, all the way to the final round, by winning 6 rounds. But, there he left just a hair too quick and tripped the red. But he needed a great light, since his opponent cut a perfect .000 light.

DUTCH CLASSIC - Super Stock Final, Round 7 Eliminations

Anyhow, these 2 guys did a great job, and represented us well, in a large field of cars. Congrats guys ! :)
