Jr. Dragster was the only class we were able to complete today due to Heavy rain coming in just before 1st round of the other classes.  Its the Eastern Conference Finals weekend at Bristol, Tn, so some of our Jrs. were away competing at that event so its a non points day for Jr racers.  At the ECF, Numidia was well respresented in the late rounds.  Lorelie Hoover was a quarterfinalist in the fun race earlier in the week, Jaiman Dietz was a quarterfinalist in the 10 year old age group and Liberti Firster made it to the final round in her age group, losing a very close race in the final round.  Great job to all team Numidia in Bristol.

 

Back at Numidia, we had a good field of Jrs. despite all of the drivers in Bristol.  In the Semi final round, The little tuna, Bobby Fortuna, picked up a win over Maura Evans.  Tuna left first with an .026 rt as Maura followed with an -.033 rt.  In the other semi final matchup, Shelby Wruble won against Gavin Shoemaker.  Wruble had the better reaction time .049 to .076 advancing to the final round.  In the final, Tuna left first with his 9.07 dial to Wruble’s 7.92.  Tuna picked up his first win as Wruble left -.039 too quick.  Congratulations to Bobby Fortuna on your first of many wins.

Great day of racing on Sunday.  We started early Sunday, finishing Saturday’s race from 2nd round on and both days of .90 racing.  Even with an oil down from 300′ to the return road, we got everything done before dark.  The track staff did another tremendous job this weekend.  Drying the track twice on Saturday and having the track ready for 8am Sunday morning.  Even with the heat, rain, long days of racing and a ton of cars going down the track, conditions were perfect all weekend.

We had a lot going on this Saturday with great car counts in all of our summit series points classes, .90 racing, Jet cars, nitro Harley, fireworks and Ralph DeBruin Memorial Tribute.  Two rain showers on a day with no rain in the forecast put the schedule behind and forced us to finish racing on Sunday morning.
