Default Clark “Doubles”, Mattioli & Dilorio become first time winner

Cecil County Dragway – June 17th & 18th – The Mid Atlantic .90 Association traveled down to Northeast, Maryland for a Father’s Day treat of .90 Racing. The event got underway on Saturday with the 8th annual Sportsman Circuit Shootout. Local Favorite Derek Clark grew up at Cecil County Dragway and calls it his “home away from home.” Clark proved that this weekend as he would go on a tear and win 9 straight rounds of competition and a clean sweep of the 9.90 class. On Saturday, Clark would take down Coopersburg, Pa’s Sean Lang in his Caviler in the final round. At the hit Clark took a significant advantage at the tree (.018 to .038) and rode that advantage with a wire to wire victory 9.913 to 9.918. Then on Sunday, Joe Eckel out of Rockaway, NJ was in his 2nd final of the season and was looking for his first ever victory. Unfortunately, for Joe he ran into the buzz saw Clark in the final. Despite, an advantage at the tree for Eckel (.019 to .030) he couldn’t’ hold off Clark’s Cutlass as he broke out handing the clean sweep to the driver from Maugansville, Md 9.908 to 9.891. For Clark this was an extra special wins for him after his Cutlass was destroyed in a garage fire in 2015 and was rebuilt to its current form.

Turning our attention to Super Comp, on Saturday long time campaigner in the 8.90 class Bill Hardifer Jr. took his W&T Pipeline Consultants, S&W Dragster to the MASCA winner circle for the first time in over 2 years when he defeated Randy Winfelder Jr. in the final. Winfelder took the advantage at the tree (.014 to .037) but, ran out with an 8.888 to hand the win to Hardifer’s 8.910. On Sunday, Tim Dilorio out of Burlington, NJ was trying his hand at .90 racing for the first time. The accomplished Junior & Bracket racer was looking to switch things up for a change and try something different. Well, for Dilorio it paid off for him as he took his 2008 American Dragster to victory over Kevin Scholl who fouled in the final in his S&W sponsored digger. Rounding out the .90 classes for the weekend was the 10.90 drivers. Yet, another bracket racer turned .90 racer Rick Mattioli found his way to the winner circle for the first time in MASSA with a victory over Dom Burgese’s Camaro in the final. Mattioli wheeled his Liftec Forklifts Camaro to victory with a starting line advantage (.009 to .017) and a 10.945 to the breakout effort of Burgese’s 10.878. Finally, on Sunday 1986 Super Gas World and Division 1 Champion Ron Orbin took his first victory in Super Street with his famous 77 Vega Wagon. The Pennsville, NJ native would take down Burgese yet again in the final. This time Dom made it easy as his left too soon and lit the red-light by -.005 handing the victory to Orbin on Father’s Day.

The next event for the series will be a trip to Numidia Dragway on July 8 & 9th for the Mid-Summer Shootout.
