RACERS RUN THE MARATHON FOR VICTORY

What started out appearing to be a routine race day turned into a true marathon after an oil down incident in the first pair of the first Pro bracket time shots.  With a solid cloud cover keeping the track cool and a chill in the air, the quarter mile long transmission fluid spill took quite a while to clean up. And after the long wait, once the Pro cars tried to pick up where they left off, three of the first four pair down the track had trouble navigating the left lane.  So, another lengthy cleanup was undertaken, the Street cars were brought back for a second time shot to test the track surface, and finally, after a quick single time run only for the rest of the fields, eliminations got underway just about nine o’clock.

For those who stuck out the down time the racing was superb for the remainder of the evening.  Two new players showed up in the last rounds of Super Pro and Pro while the previous runner-up in Street completed the deal this week.  And it was déjà vu all over again in the Bike bracket.

Greg Georges brought out his familiar Camaro to race in the Super Pro class and went the distance for his first win of the year.  Georges barley emerged with the win light over the Chevelle of Rich Williams and ran the dragster of David Hebig under the dial to move into the final against John Graziano.  Graziano and his 66 Impala ragtop bested John Zulla in the quarters and then advanced over Mike Conway’s 63 Impala to gain his spot for the money run.  While Graziano had the head start and a .006 reaction time, Georges was close enough to push him under his dial and he broke out on his 7.76 number with a 7.753 at 124.69.  Georges got the win with a time of 7.18 at 144.40 mph.

Almost four dozen Pro hopefuls showed up for first round action and by the time the QF came around seven drivers were setting their sights on the prize.  Joe Theodore drove his Monza past the Vega of Gary Wyler, Rob Zetterberg was better than Bob Conway,
Jim Young took out Craig Sonderfan and Bill Van Goor fell into the bye.  Zetterberg, who had bought his way back into the eliminator after a first round exit, took on Theodore in a semifinal pairing, and dispatched the Monza with a 9.56, 141.12 to a 10.07 and 134.87.  Van Goor then staged his Camaro alongside the Camaro of Young and hung a hole shot on him to ratchet up to the title dash on a ticket of 10.50 and 126.72 versus a 10.26, 126.60.  Van Goor got the jump on Zetterberg in the last race and held on through the entire distance to emerge with the win light at 10.52 and 124.61 to the loser’s 9.55 at 141.55.

HOHNARTH MAKES PALTZ RUNNER-UP AGAIN
HARVEY, WACKERMANN AND STEPHENS ARE WINNERS


    Art Paltz was good enough to make it to his second straight Super Pro final but was unable to close the deal as this week the Beretta of Barry Hohnarth outlasted the dragster’s bid to even his record at one and one.  The digger pilot from Edison was again the quickest car in the eliminator and never strayed more than 2 hundredths from his 6.12 dial throughout the event, including in a solo run in the semis.  He eliminated the dragsters of Terry Kimball and Jason Wilson before running down the Mopar entry of Michael Sulc in the quarters. A 6.12 at 167 booted Sulc’s 7.25 and 142 that secured Paltz the bye in the next to last round.  John Zulla won in the QF when the dragster of Robbie Boyd pulled a red light start and Barry Hohnarth ran unopposed. 
Hohnarth was super lucky to get by the first round with mechanical troubles but won when Jean Ann Zetterberg broke out.  He then eliminated the Mustang of James Arata and took out Zulla’s Monza with a 6.83 to a red lighting 8.62 for the loser.  Hohnarth got 7 tenths on the tree in the final and left with a .002 RT that would have made him hard to beat under any circumstances.  As it happened, Paltz caught the foul light and shut off giving the Chevy racer the title on a 6.80 time at a speed of 156.08 mph.

THE MORE THINGS CHANGE THE MORE THEY STAY THE SAME

SEASON’S FIRST WINNERS MIRROR LAST YEAR CHAMPS

          After a one week delay due to weather, the 2016 racing season at Island Dragway got underway with near perfect conditions and a gaggle of ready-to-race enthusiasts. Being the first opportunity to get a start on this year’s Summit Racing Series points chase, there were some very familiar faces occupying the winner’s circle at the end of the day. In fact, three of the four money bracket victors were the top points finishers from last year, and the fourth eliminator might have been a similar story except for a mechanical failure.

          Todd Martin picked up where he left off with a win in the Super Pro ranks while Bill Hakucsa, who simply crushed the competition in Street a year ago, annexed the Street honors. And the story in Bike was a familiar refrain as Barry Stephens posted his first title of the season. The only eliminator that did not follow suit was Pro, where Scott Embley emerged with the final win light. Craig Sonderfan looked poised to continue his march from the title last year until some breakage sent him back to the trailer after winning his race in the third round and prevented him from answering the call to race in the quarter finals.
