Cory Gulitti and Chris “BoyBaby” Jones each took home $15,000 checks at the CP Racing Promotions Under the Lights race at the Texas Motorplex. Cameron Fulfer and Bryan Champman each collected $7,500 victories in the No-Box class.
ENNIS, Texas (July, 20 2020) – CP Racing Promotion’s Under The Lights presented by Sherman Racing Engines was held at the Texas Motorplex in Ennis, Texas. The race was the third of the year for promoter Cody Pollage and was one of the smoothest races of the season. A crowd of over 250 bracket racers came together to compete for two nights of big money bracket racing.
To help offset the sweltering Texas heat, the schedule called for a late afternoon start and racing under the lights. The plan worked as most of the event was conducted in the cooler evening temps although that pushed the final rounds into the early morning hours. The addition of Frank Kohutek as race director worked well as the event went off without a hitch with the exception of the armadillo that made its way onto the track…it is Texas y’all.
The schedule included two $15,000 to win races in the Box class while the No-Box competitors raced for $7,500 to win each night.
Friday Night Race Results
Friday’s action kicked off around 6:30 pm with well over 200 cars in attendance. Cameron Fulfer dominated the No-Box class after taking two entries to four cars. After running himself in the semifinals, Fulfer defeated Aaron Jones in the final round to claim the first big check of the evening.
The first Box final of the weekend was a classic as two of the biggest stars in the state paired off for a $15,000 payday. Bracket racing star Cory Gulitti used a .003 light and a dead-on seven lap to turn back 2X NHRA World Champ Austin Williams. Williams was mathematically ineligible when he let go .011 and ran .011 above.
Saturday Night Race Results
Saturday’s action included two first time CP Racing Promotions winners. Bryan Chapman drove his new hot rod to the No-Box win after defeating Zach Martinez in the final round.
Chris “BoyBaby” Jones drove the talented Box field to claim a well earned $15,000 payday. Jones was .015 dead seven in the final to slip past Brandon Crowsey for the win.
The next event on the CP Racing Promotions schedule is just 11 days away at Pine Valley Raceway in Lufkin, Texas. The Pine Valley Under The Lights race will follow the same format of night racing July 31st – August 1st.
