Default Buckeye S/SS Kil Kare Results

Maybe the threat of rain will keep some racers home but hot weather won't.It got up to 94 on Saturday June 11th. Stock/SuperStock and Nostalgia racers were good with that. Two racers broke before eliminations leaving 34 for the first round. A good mix drivers going rounds found five racers left in the fourth round. None of them had won on the Buckeye S/SS series so we would have a new winner. Let were Brian Merkle driving his A/SA Firebird defeating Paul Boster's Corvette Stocker. Ken Sharp's Cadillac GT/KA over Bob Marshall's Dodge Material SS/AA. The bye was to Mike Ortel's '63 Plymouth N/SS car.

Ken Sharp got the Bye into the final.Mike Ortel had a .003 light and looked good against Merkle's Firebird until he went from first to third killing his chances to move to the final.

Final was The blue and yellow NAPA Firebird of Brian Merkle against Ken Sharps Caddy. The sun played a big part in the final as Sharp could hardly see the tree and was later than Merkle. Brian only needed a 10.86 on a 10.74 dial to win. Sharp ran a 10.7598 on his 10.76 dial so he had that part figured out. Congratulations to both drivers as they are both now qualified for the Championship runoff.

The Buckeye S/SS Drag Racing Series presented by Columbus Joint & Clutch also saw Matt Antrobius run an 11.261 on his 11.26 dial to edge out the Challenger of Jeff Ross who was 10.873 on his 10.87 dial for the Dial for Dollars cash sponsored by Mid Ohio Paving.

The first round "Best First Round Winning Package " was narrowly won by Jeff Ross with a .023 light and a 10.851 on his 10.85 dial (.0249 package) over Bob Marshall's .0277 package (.0093 light and 9.6184 on a 9.60 dial in) $100 sponsored by Parsons & Myers Racing Engines.

Also as a note we collected $950 for the Steve "Moocher" Thomas burial fund. Buckeye S/S Drag Racing Series did the $500 match to total $1450 so far. We will again collect for this fund at the next race at National Trail for those that did not have the opportunity to donate.

Great start to the 2016 Season and see you all at National Trail for the next race on the series.
