BOYD GRABS S/P, SONDERFAN PICKS UP PRO WIN

KETTERER ALMOST DOUBLES UP

                There are many things that a drag racer faces that represent challenges. One critical component of any day’s competition is the weather. Sometimes the air is cold and other times the heat is almost unbearable. Figuring out what to dial from round to round can be a nightmare. But this weekend the day was just about perfect. Temperatures in the high 60s, nice sunshine, not much wind and reasonable humidity set the scene for about an idyllic a day at the races as you will ever see.

                And those conditions it was time for some new faces to collect the honors as Robbie Boyd, Craig Sonderfan and Mark Ketterer all garnered the titles in Super, Pro and Street for the first time this year. Boyd has switched to a RED mount this season and has been getting better and better as he gain more experience with the dragster. Sonderfan, who historically finishes in the top five or ten positions in points each year, has been shut out until this race in the Pro division. And Mark Ketterer almost pulled off a double, working his way to the final in both Pro and Street, winning the race in the latter category.

                Boyd took out prior winner Bryan Mirsky in the opener of S/P, followed up with a win over the Vette of Joe Algieri in the quarters and fell into a bye run for the semifinals. Mirsky, on a buy back, bested David Hebig to advance out of the QF and Barry Luyster sent Randy Wendtland home to become the third entry into the semis. After Mirsky fouled out to Luyster the dragsters paired off for the deciding race where it was just about even up on the dial in. While Luyster gained a very small edge on the launch the win light came on in Boyd’s lane making his 6.45, 155.74 the better ticket. Luyster got close but went to runner-up status on a 6.49 at 154.72 mph.

FULL HOUSE OF RACING MAKES GREAT WEEKEND

            For the first time all eliminators with the exception of juniors were on the same fight card on the same day. Along with the regular class structure, this weekend added the two Index classes, as well as Pro Dial and Modern Muscle. With that many classes sharing space in the staging lanes it could have been a traffic nightmare, but between the staging crew and the racers themselves keeping things straight everybody got to race when and where they were scheduled.

            The Super Pro class returned to 1000 foot racing this week but that didn’t seem to be a negative for any of the entrants. Jason Wilson came through for the victory in the class when he defeated Randy Wendtland in the final. Wendtland and his Camaro beat Gregg Georges in the quarters and Wilson took out Joe Algieir to move one. Robbie Boyd and his new mount, a RED, sent Donny Algieri’s similar racer to the trailer and Scott Lorish made the semis a three dragster affair when he chopped down last week’s winner Dave Hebig. Wendtland put the only doored car into the final by downing Lorish in the SF and Wilson easily won over Boyd when the latter fouled out. Wilson then drilled a great start in the final and held on for the light at 6.68 and 158.54 to make Wendtland a second place racer at 7.42 and 141.33.
