Results for Bracket Race #6

В 

Once the dust and smoke had cleared from Bracket race #5, the racers at HPT took a short 20-minute break and jumped right back onto the hot track. The weather was sweltering and the action was still heating up as the drivers were blasting out .00 reaction times with regularity. Local racers Jeff and Eric Faulkner were nice enough to donate t-shirts to any racer who could cut a .00 light in eliminations, and not one of the 24 shirts remained after the race. These drivers were SERIOUS!

Super Pro brought out 31 drivers for round one and they beat on each other through 3 rounds to find 8 racers in the quarter-finals. Don Nichols drove his Black 2007 Davis dragster past Bobby Mount’s Maverick and Larry Piper put Todd Stallbaumer’s Camaro on the trailer. Landon Stallbaumer found himself next to Danielle Jaramillo’s dragster and used a brilliant 8.322 on an 8.32 dial-in to take away her starting line advantage for a very close win as Danielle posted a 8.787 on her 8.78 dial. Willie Burnett forced Craig Butler to break out at the finish line and advanced to the next round.

В 

IN the Semifinals, Piper put down Stallbaumer and Burnett outran Nichols. The final pitted Piper’s dragster against Burnett’s and Piper mustered up a great 0.017-second reaction time to finish off Burnett.

The Pro class was made up of 25 competitors and when three rounds were completed, it was Dean Steward of Topeka, Mickey Lockhart of Alma, Troy Ross of Emporia, Dan Eichem of Wamego, Ken Mull of Clearwater and TJ Tobler of Leawood to make up an all-Kansas quarter-final round. Steward beat Lockhart as Mickey’s Monte went too quick and broke out, Ross squeaked by Eichem in an extremely close battle and Ken Mull ran right on his dial-in to defeat Tobler.

В 

In the semifinals, Ken Mull took the bye run and left Ross and Steward to battle it out. Ross overcame Steward’s 0.007-second reaction time and won as Steward ran too quick and DQ’d himself. The final saw Ross break open a blistering .006-second light and then run within .012-second of his dial-in to beat out Ken Mull who broke out.

В
