Saturday Results

Tom Thorp Transports Super Pro

Kris Pope in the winning ticket printing Beatty Special dragster managed to get around a superior reaction time by opponent Maxey Chittum to score the win in Super Pro.

Maxey was out first on a 5.52 dial and hammered the tree with a .002 light. But the truck didn’t make the number, only running 5.56. Kris left with a 4.90 dial and a good .012 light and finished up one over 4.91 for the win.

If Kris hasn’t already bought that dragster, he probably should have as they are just going to want more money for it now!

BCRW Pro Footbrake Shootout

Jon Upchurch handed the Footbrake Shootout win over to Preston Scherr when he went -.025 red on the start. Without the red light it could have been different. Jon ran it out to a 7.11 dead on 3. But that’s how it goes al lot of times – go red, run the dial. Figures.

In the Super Pro final, Bern Beatty killed the tree with a .003 reaction while the tree killed Talon Farmer with a -002 red light. And that was that. Bern won every round she ran on Sunday. To be fair so did Talon, except the last one.

Max’s Automotive Jr Dragster

The Jr final was another red light one and done final round. Mason Tuck was the first to leave. but his -.020 killed his chance right out of the gate. Could have been a good round without that red. Grant ran 7.91 on a 7.90 while Mason ran 8.932 under his 8.94.
