April 15th -- Race
is badd in Top Beaver win.
Tough to top. Justin had an automatic win when Modified Champion,
Jeromy Poust fouled with a -.001 in the finals of Top Beaver. The
Bad Guy was right on every round.
Top ET Finals: Came down to the battle of second generation
racers. Points leader, Bryan Sorce ran out the most when Justin
Badman countered with his .016 light.
Modified saw Doug Kline debut his Hemi Road Runner in fine fashion
making it to the finals but running out with a 11.16 on a 11.22.
Jeromy Poust picked up the win when he ran a 10.83 on a 10.85 with
a .009 light. The boy is tough.
Turbo Bob Shields blasted out an easy 8.10 on a 7.98 dial when
Kenny Kauffman ran an off pace 8.75 on his 8.67 dial. It looks
like Bike will be a major battle ground again with over 20 plus
killer entries every week.
TCR came down to the battle of Girl Power. Christina DiBartolomeo piloted
her "Mom's Oldsmobile" to the win over Steph Witmer in
dad's F-150. TCR is a major program at "The Beaver" with
15 entries every week. What a great deal for the kids.
JR Dragster fell to Cody Gibson over a red hot Colton Kirchner
when both drivers left early. Cody won with a 8.07 on a 8.08 to
Colton's 7.99 on a 8.07.
Hot Rod Trophy went to Jack Matson in his sharp A/HRT '81
Malibu 454 over rookie Carman Koser in the B/HRT Rebel Nova. Jack
ran a 11.53 on a 11.52 for the win when Carman ran out with a
16.41 on a 16.67.
The 29 car field in Lil Beaver came down to 2005 Top ET Champion
Glenn Seward in his dragster battling the double entry (Top/Mod)
Mustang of Mike Barber. Mike foot braked a -.016 foul in the
finals and ran a 11.82 on a 11.83 to Glenn's winning 9.00 on a
9.02 with a .011 reaction time. These guys are really good.
Top Beaver semi battle found Modified champ, Jeromy Poust,
nosing out Turbo Bob Shields bike with a 10.83 on a 10.83 to Bob's
7.97 on a 7.98 at 163.48 MPH!!
Top Beaver semi battle had Justin Badman just getting by Bud Poust
ending the dream finals all Poust Top Beaver. It's bound to happen
sometime this season.
In the Modified wars Troy Geyer won the battle against Tom Hoover
in round two.
But it was an expensive win when he kicked out the rods past the
Close, I guess. Badman's .012 light was just enough to stop Jeff
Duck's .011 in the third round of Top ET. Jeff ran out the most
with a 8.038 on a 8.06. Justin was out by .005.
Former TCR star, Travis Getz, stuck the nose of his dark blue
Camaro in front of a red lighting Zack Kinney to take a first
round win in Lil Beaver.
One of the coolest Modified entries has to be Jim Stugart's
Elliott built 351 backed by a G-Force 4 speed. The NASCAR powered
Ford cranked out 10.30's at 130 MPH!
Doug "Cooler" Howard had trouble finding the tree on his
maiden race losing to Ron Shrom's small block Nova in round
one of Top ET. He'll get better, count on it.
Lil Beaver battle between Tom Tom Seward and Glenn the Brave
went to Glenn.
It's a Hemi!! Doug Kline's Road Runner draws a crowd just to look
under the hood.
Steve Singley will be a real threat this season in Modified.
The former JR champion has all the tools to get the job
Barry Sauder of Ephrata paid us a visit and went to round three of
Top ET before dropping a close one to Paul Shingara when he ran
out with a 10.91 on a 10.93.
Paul Shingara was looking good in Top ET until he ran up against
The Romeo family doubled up in Modified and Hot Rod Trophy by
using Kevin's Free HRT pass that he won on Friday in Out Law
Street. His dad, Frank, fell to Will Leitch in Modified and
mom Amy, fouled to Kayla Winters in Hot Rod Trophy. But they sure
were having fun. We look to see them again over the Holiday
Lonny "Blaster" Horst made it to the semi's of Street
before fouling to Tom Harhart.
Canadian visitor, Arnie Schwemmer, drove his new Mustang GT to
Beaver and ran some stout 13.70's in pure street trim. These cars
are killer out of the box.
Tom Harhart had Bud Poust covered in the Street finals but took
too much stripe running out with a 14.694 on a 14.72 in his good
looking Nova. Won't do that again!
Tim Kauffman was a little anxious in round one cutting a -.084
against Josh Yocum.
Barry Angstadt's 434 powered Vega SW is one good looking
He dropped a close one to points leader, Bryan Sorce, in round one
of Top ET.
Rich Ulmer' was relegated to spectator when his `67 Nova dropped a
valve in time trials. The 10 second small block sure is one clean

guy finals when Wayne drew a -.004 foul against Bryan Sorce.
Rod Holtzapple is just finding his spot on the tree. Look out
guys, he's ready to strike.
Craig Turnbaugh was riding Mike McCracken's second sled in IHRA
He had some fun even though he dropped out first round losing to
Bearing check. This is why Mike McCracken was a spectator after
round one of Top.
Fred House was testing his new combination. A Turbo 4 cylinder
Ford. He blasted out several 8 second passes. This thing
even gives good gas mileage!!
Some days peanuts, some days shells. Former Champion Earl Gee has
been having a tough start this season loosing by thousandth every
week. Peanuts coming soon.
Duane Troup stopped killer Mike Mackey's Daytona in round one of
Duane's hero is "The Earl".
