EXHIBITION CARS - WOW!!!
Joe Jacona is out first on a red light over Bob Rosetty's Tweety's Rat.
Bit's and Pieces -vs- Sweetman Bros.
Boggs Bros. -vs- Sharkys Machine
Tweety went off roading on his burnout!! Didn't hurt anything, backed up and ran!!
Tweety Rat took his match over Bits and Pieces after an "Off track burnout".
Joe Jacono pulled off a second round win over Sharky's Machine with a 7.65 at 179!!
Yes, it is 1969. What a race!!
Real Funny Cars. Single pump, single plug, manual shifted with a 6-71,
and they don't look like rolling cartoon coloring books. They're the best.
The Boggs Brothers AMC Funny Car. Only at the Beaver. I love it!!
The Master of Faster, Andy Jensen set the crowd on it's ear with a 6.87 at 211.26 MPH pass in his turbo charged 427 Corvette.
Andy Jensen, the Beaver's home grown 200 MPH hero. He's the greatest!
Jack Todd brought his 772 inch Boss 429 `61 Starliner to match Daddy Warbucks.
Dickie Estevez was out first and took the win with a 7.70 to a 7.89!!
The original Jungle Jim Funny Car was here and did a cackle fest style show.
The Nostalgia Super Stock title went to the A/FX GTO 421 of Richard Barnhart out of Harrisonburg, VA over the incredible Altered Wheelbase A/FX Hemi of Bob Schatz from Glenville, PA. The GTO cut a great .001 light and ran a 9.98 on a 9.93 at 135.35 MPH to the Mopar's 12.08 on a 12.10 at 102.49 MPH.
Beaver's own Dennis Kohr in his Max Wedge Dodge made it to the semi's. Dan Householder's Altered Wheelbase 426 Hemi ran great but ran out in round one.
Almost 30 Super Stockers made first round. It's like you're in the pits at US-30 again.
East Coast Gassers and N.E.T.O.
The East Coast Gasser finals looked like you were back in time as Tom Nowicki's blown `56 Chevy cut a great .002 light and ran a 10.34 on a 10.27 at 122.90 MPH to take the title from Pete Boyer's `39 Chevy. Pete ran a 11.52 on a 11.53 at 114.54 MPH.
Tony Feil's `61 Corvette took the NETO Comp title over Frank Privitera's Willys with a 8.55 on a 8.50 at 163.19 MPH to Frank's red lighting 9.01 on a 9.00 at 150.23 MPH.
Ron Bizio's took on Fred Bear in the AA/GS match.
It's Two Lane Black Top!!
The English Brothers debut their unique Chevy powered Jaguar XK-E.
They just have to paint it like Austin Powers "Shag-uar" with the Union Jack.
Think about it, it's a natural. The English Brothers in a Jag, how easy is that?
Phil and Dee Morris of Gasser Wars Magazine made the tow in from Washington state for the event. The AA/A ran in the 7's at over 170 MPH. What a beauty!!
The Pro Stick final came down to an all Ford Finals with points leader, Dan Hoyer of Inwood, WV taking the title with a 11.30 on a 11.29 at 113.22 MPH over Beaver regular, Merv Moyer when the was a little late running a 10.90 on a 9.94 at 135.06.
Nostalgia ET and Nostalgia Street
Nostalgia ET was another all Ford finals. Ronnie Crammer's classic `57 Ford came out on top over Mark Santee's rare `63 Comet. In a virtual heads up race Santee's 351 fouled with a -.021 giving the win to the 460 powered `57. Ron ran a 11.25 on a 11.03 at 108.98 MPH to Mark's 11.01 on a 11.06 at 123.33 MPH.
Nostalgia Street finals found a pair of Beaver regulars, Rob MacDonald in his `70 Chevelle took the title over Dale Greenly's classic `60 Biscayne. Rob cut a .036 light and ran a 12.44 on a 12.38 at 105.74 MPH to Dale's closer but late 15.34 on a 15.33 at 88.60 MPH pass.
BSD's hardcore Ford man, Faron Rhoads, made it to the semis of Nostalgia Street in his blown 390 `68 Mustang. Faron came out on the short end in the closest race of the day losing to the `60 Chevy Cherry Bomb of Dale Greenly .001.
Zack Miller's Nova and Chelsea Kline's `64 Fairlane were a featured TCR match race.
