over Sunday's champion, Jason Weaver. Jason ran a 9.992 on a
10.00 at 135.15 and the 440 ran right on his 10.17 dial in at
133.49 MPH to take the Betty Goodman Memorial trophy.

Klock went red. The Challenger cut a -.024 foul and ran a 12.101
on a 12.14 at 110.91 MPH. Jason also was early with a -.009 and

Charcalla's `86 Mustang after Charkey drew a red light.

Hemi John Simbeck won the Top ET Title on Sunday's event over
Jim Stover's Pinto. HJ went on to drop Bud Poust's (MANDRA
winner) in the first round of Top Beaver. John dedicated his win
to Robin Szczesny, a long time friend and BMW Club racer who
just went through major surgery last week. Since her friends
consider her the "Iron Woman" it seems only fitting for HJ to
dedicate his win to her complete recovery.
Turbo Bob Shields broke his wheelie bars but still managed to
take the title over Rookie, Richie Bunting. Old age and
treachery trumps youth and enthusiasm again.

buddy Kevin Romeo cheer as he won the Man. Yep, he's happy too.
Gordy Foose represented the Pro Stick contingent in the Top Beaver
race. The 406 Corvette fell in the first round to Wonder Boy
after cutting a better light.
Bob Klock in his Challenger added an Iron Man to his collection
with a final round win over Dave Weaver's Charger. Tammy and
Melissa cheer as Kevin Romeo scouts the track for Jason Weaver.
Cutie Thamaira Boyle was runner up to Clark Kent Knudsen in Hot
Rod Trophy with her Nova. Earlier in the day she dumped TCR
champ, Taylor Olewiler.
TCR was a battle of the sexes. In Sunday's action, Cody Smith in
his Firebird was victorious over Chelsea Kline in dad's `64
Fairlane. Cody took an easy win when Chelsea when red with an
Rookie, Jeremiah Craft, was expertly crewed by Dennis Kohr to a
final round appearance. The McClure based driver has shown
great promise this season.

left early with a -.165 foul as Heather went on to take the
