Extreme Street

Winner: Gerry Lamarche

Runner Up: Matt Vanlet

Gerry Lamarche won 2 straight in his Turbocharged Mustang and took home the cash and a huge pile of contingency certificates over Matt Vanlet in his Small Block powered Chevy Nova. Bracket Racers who are looking to try out some Head’s Up Racing are reminded that Naturally Aspirated, Single Four-Barrel Cars can race in this class with ANY tire, so you can race this class with ZERO changes to your Car!!

Outlaw 8.5

Winner: Scott Schulhauser

Runner Up: Mark Campbell

With 11 cars in total and very tight qualifying, Outlaw 8.5 was the most exciting class of the day.  The top 7 cars were all in the 5’s and within tenths of a second in ET.  First round we had some great races including one that was won by 0.029 of a second! A number of races were won on Holeshots, proving that the faster car is not always the winner. The fastest runs of the day were in  the 5.6’s, with one racer breaking into the 5.50 zone in eliminations.

The race ended with a showdown between #1 Scott Schulhauser with his single-turbo 1994 Mustang and #2 Mark Campbell with his Nitrous 438 cubic inch 1989 Mustang. Both cars were on a fast pass when disaster struck and Campbell suffered a huge Nitrous explosion that incinerated his carburetor, with Scott taking home the victory. Post race report is that Mark has replaced his melted Carb, and torn down his engine for inspection and is now back together and is ready to avenge his loss int he first race!

Open Comp

Winner: John Melnyk

Runner Up: Keith Prozni

There was 14 cars in total for Open Comp, many of which are regular bracket racers used to the .500 full tree.  Many of them commented on how they like the .400 pro tree and the challenge it created.  The racing was once again very tight and many victories by hundreds of a second or less with the eventual win going to John Melnyk over Keith Prozni.

What a great way for regular competitors in Box or No Box to race for some real prize money! John took home $800 cash, a Track Mat from Bedrug and $625 ($1425 total) in contingency for the win! Racers are encouraged to try out this exciting new race format, and can always double up and run their regular class in addition to Open Comp.
