         Chris Holley wins Top Beaver


"The Professor" ran his lesson plan well on Easter Saturday winning Modified over points leader Dan Swank and then cutting down Gary Fogleman's 522 inch Meng Dragster in the Top Beaver battle.
FYI: Chris is a professor at Penn Tech in Williamsport.
He has recently moved here from Georgia. BSD is the first 1/4 mile track he ever had the opportunity to run on. It looks like the change agrees with him.

 Gary "TJ" Fogleman won a close one over Mike McCracken in Top ET. 
Both drivers cut .013 lights. TJ took the win by .0028.

 How close was it? Franklin DiBartolomeo cut a .005 to TJ's .010 but ran out the most in the first round of Top Beaver. TJ's MOV was a .0012!! 

Bob Goss won his first Bike title in his 3 year career. 
Gossy got around Kenny Kauffman's back up ride in the finals.

Beaver Springs newest local star is Franklin DiBartolomeo. Moving from New Jersey to only a 1/4 mile up the road, Franklin has scored a win on Friday Street racing with his IROC and a Street ET title over Dale Rhoads on Easter Saturday.

 Jeremy Campbell (near) fell short in his bid to stop defending champion Steve Singley in the finals. Steve's .034 light with a 7.958 on a 7.94 was too much.

Cody Geyer took the Hot rod trophy title over Derek Hartley's 6 cylinder Chevette.

Steve Miller's 600 inch Firebird ran into the 10's. What a crowd pleaser!!
