Our 2nd race of the series at Capitol Raceway turned out to be one of the best ones yet. We had over 18 cars show up for Pierside Parts I/Gas and in the heads up Jerry Lewis Racing A/Gas we had 7 cars show up for their first 1/8th mile race. The last A/Gas event was held at Maple Grove and was a 1/4 mile event. Capitol Raceway provided us with an outstanding surface to race on and with cool temperatures and killer air most of the racers were running their personal best ET's.
Right off the trailer Jerry Lewis posted his first ever 5-second pass with a 5.90 at 123mph. If you were there in person or if you've seen the video you know that this run had a lot more in it. Watch out for this turbo charged car once they really start turning the boost up. Our A/Gas finals paired #3 Qualifier Oliver Frey in his naturally aspirated pro stock against #5 Qualifier Kirk Adams in his turbo charged pro mod. When the tree came down it was Oliver Frey taking the win with a 6.07 ET to prove to the field that a naturally aspirated car can show up and win in a field of turbo charged cars.
The last pair down the track for the evening was the I/Gas finals pairing Austin Johnson III against a new comer in a water-cooled rabbit driven by Herman Harris. Herman was having transmission issues and Austin coasted to the win and taking over the points lead at the same time. Our final race of the season is turning into an epic event with a close battle in the point's championship. If Austin goes out first round in I/Gas and any of the racers have a good showing they can easily take the championship away from the points leader. In A/Gas 1st place and 4th place are only separated by a mere 20 points. The 2015 points championship will definitely be decided on October 18th at Englishtown. See you there.
A/Gas and I/Gas will BOTH BE RUN 1/8 MILE HERE! A/gas is heads up, .400 pro tree, vw powered door cars or dune buggies.
I/Gas is our 7.99 and faster bracket class.
