Waaay Northeast Drag Racing

Postby Maritime Drag Racing » Sat Aug 26, 2006 8:52 pm

Pretty busy tonight processing pics and updating the website so I'll just re-post what I put on the Maritime Drag Racers Message Board:

Lots of Gamblers race action at Cape Breton Dragway today: Quick 32 went to Richard Boyd over Frank Banks - Dennis Harrietha and John MacKinnon split 3rd place. Regular Gamblers final was Vaughn Boone over John Turnbull - Bike/Sled went to Kevin King over Glen Frizzell - Junior Dragster Gamblers Race was won by Hillary Capstick over Matt MacLean. A couple of Cape Breton Dragway track records to report with both honours going across the Cabot Strait to Newfoundland: Dave Anthony lowered the record three times ending up with a best of 7.36 @ 186.73 MPH. Another Newfoundland racer Dave Powell Jr set the record for a doorslammer at 7.58 @ 179.99 MPH with a bit of wheelspin. Lots more action tomorrow with ADRA and Cape Breton Dragway points and double payouts. Gates/Tech open at 8:00 AM - Time Trials till noon - Eliminations at 1:00PM

Here's a few pics from Saturday afternoon - enjoy!!

Dave Powell Jr lowered the doorslammer ET record to 7.537 and Gord MacDonald reset the track record for Sleds with a blistering 8.38 @ 156.80.

Got some pretty good pics today too - soon as I get 'em processed I'll add them to this thread. Next week a few of us make our annual pilgrimage to Raceway Park, Prince Edward Island for the Labour Day Weekend Bracket Bash. Really looking forward to that since all I have to do is be Crew Chief for a couple of Super/Pro cars - no Tech work, no crowd control, no setup or teardown, nobody in my face demanding a re-run, and no cleaning up oildowns. For once I might actually have some fun.........

There were a few nice details on that 55. It's surprising that it looks so clean since he drives it every day when it's not snowing LOL. I don't think this tail light is stock either.

As promised we have some photos from Sunday. They're not "action" shots since I'm usually rushing through the starting line/staging lanes/pits area to deal with typical "running the place" chores and don't have the time to wait for that perfect photo-op.
