MIRSKY SCORES S/P WIN
NEW WINNERS IN PRO, STREET
Bryan Mirsky scored his first win of the season in Super Pro on his second trip to the title round as he fights for a seat on the Bracket Finals team for 2016. Mirsky had one other chance earlier in the year where he came up short of the goal, but was able to complete the sweep this weekend over the dragster of Jean Ann Zetterberg. Meanwhile, in the Pro eliminator, Barry Van Scotten nabbed his initial victory for the year in a final round besting of Tylor Wyker and Jeff Rahner was good to go in Street as he defeated Connie Wackermann in the deciding race.
The event had some significant delays as the result of an oil down in the first round of Super Pro and some passing rain showers and lightning that piggybacked on the clean-up operations. Bryan Mirsky, who started the year in Street with a 66 Chevy switched to his S/P 66 Biscayne for the second half challenges and made some fine passes this week to emerge with the honors. Mirsky took out the tough Chevelle of Jeremy Dittmar and the RED entry of Dave Hebig before facing off with James Arata and his Mustang in the semifinal. Jean Ann Zetterberg got by a too quick Barry Moyer and was extremely lucky to beat Charles Koenig in the quarters after her very late reaction time held up when Koenig broke out. She ended the night for Greg Georges in the semis as the Camaro driver also ran too quick to take the loss. Mirsky closed the deal in the final when his RT was better and he posted up a time of 8.31 at 122.34 to put on the win light. Zetterberg trailed at 6.58 and 149.50 in her dragster.
