LUCK BRINGS HEBIG A S/P WIN

PELANNE IS PRO CHAMP, PICONE COLLECTS STREET

            A few new faces showed up in the winner’s circle this weekend, although not without some difficulties cropping up during the event. A lengthy clean up necessitated by a long oil down by a motorcycle made first round dials a guessing game as more than two hours expired between the call to go racing and the last time trial. But, facing adversity is a mark of a good racer and when the hail to start your engines went out, everyone was ready for the battle.

            David Hebig has his S&W RED on the auction block, and can prove it is a winning combination as he hauled in the Super Pro money for the night. As is so often the case, good skills sometimes need a withdrawal from the luck bank to be effective, and in this case Hebig made just such a withdrawal in the quarterfinal round, when he took on the Cavalier of Steve Jepko. For some unknown reason Hebig was super late in leaving the line, taking over 2 tenths of a second to react to the green go signal. In most cases that would be pretty much a lose ticket looking for a place to land, but lucky for the Orefield Pa racer, Jepko clocked a sub-dial 8.62 at 159 mph, allowing Hebig to advance eventually to the final race with a 7.42, 183 run. Joe Algieri’s Corvette took out a speedy Mike Sulc and his Dodge, 10.05, 130 versus a losing 8.66 at 152. And Rich Williams drove his Chevelle to a solo time of 9.20, 144.26. Williams and his second chance effort went off with Algieri in the semis and he had a slight advantage on the light, but Algieri prevailed at the big end by .006 seconds as the plastic Chevy hit a 10.05, 129 to a 9.23, 142. The final had Hebig launching after Algieri that left the outcome unsettled until the very end when the dragster flashed on the win sign with a 7.46 time at 182.30 mph. Runner-up time of 10.01 and 130.76 showed a too quick pass for Algieri.
