Default CCRA Roxboro April 6-7

*** There's no place like home!! ***

This weekend, April 6-7, CCRA-Carolina Class Racers Association returns to its roots. Roxboro Motorsports Park is where CCRA was first in competition at & this weekend we are looking to make lots of new memories! Many of our racers have never been to this track & to others, it will be a trip down memory lane. 2024 is set to be the biggest year ever for CCRA presented by GBM Land & Construction & it all gets kicked off in a few short days.

Gates will open on Friday at 5 pm with a track hosted test & tune event with the track going hot at 6 pm. You have to be a weekend competitor in order to test on Friday evening & they will also have a gambler's race.

Saturday, gates open at 8 am with time runs beginning at 10 am. Run order: FB, TOP, CCRA, JRS, BIKES, & SPORTSMAN. We will follow our normal Saturday schedule with one time run, Warren Engines Dash for Cash, then eliminations. Saturday title sponsor is John West Racing Engines & Bert's Performance and Restoration is the associate sponsor.

There will be a church service provided by Ashley Allen at 10 am with a kids service provided by Mrs. Anna Allen. Sunday, cars can't be cranked until 12 noon. Track will give a time run to their new entries & we will have our WE Dash for Cash. Sunday's title sponsor is Charlene & Jake Melton with Precision Fabrication and Wiring being the associate sponsor.

Be prepared to have your cars teched on Saturday. A few notes to highlight for the upcoming weekend:

* $200.00 to enter points
* $100.00 to enter race
* We will have CCRA shirts for sale.

See y'all this weekend & let's show Roxboro how we do it!!!

For the first time in a couple of years, we were actually able to complete our 1st two races of the season on schedule so hopefully this is a good trend to follow this year. CCRA-Carolina Class Racers Association rolled into Roxboro Motorsports Park this weekend for the first time in many years & from what I'm hearing from our racers, everyone enjoyed themselves!

Let's start by giving Roxboro Motorsports Park owners/employees a special THANK YOU for welcoming us to their facility & giving us 2 great days of racing. Saturday was a small challenge with the colder weather temps for overall everything went fairly well. Then Sunday started out with a huge bump in the road but track employees & racers pulled together to get everything going although it was later than scheduled.

To no surprise, CCRA-Carolina Class Racers Association racers came out swinging as we had 8 dead on runs for our Warren Engines sponsored Dash for Cash. Mr. Jr. Bryant, after taking a few years off, collected the first $100.00 of the weekend. He was dialed a 6.80 and ran a 6.8002 at 97.76 mph. We had 39 cars on the property but 4 cars had failures & were unable to make the first round call so we started with 35 entries. Mr. Donnie Moore Sr, 82 years young, came out on the losing side of a tough run first round. He was dialed a 6.17, had a .0581 RT, & ran a 6.1853 at 109.49 mph. He was awarded a $50.00 bill (in which he didn't like=superstitious) for the Victory Lane Golf Carts sponsored 1st Round Best Losing Package. The Ford's Fuel and Propane/ Renegade Race Fuels & Lubricants 2nd Round Best Losing Package went to Mr. Tim Barrett. This was the first time Mr. Tim & Mrs. Linda joined CCRA action but I think they enjoyed themselves & Mr. Tim even joined CCRA points so we'll definitely be seeing more of them in 2024. He was dialed a 7.03, had a .0780 RT & ran a 7.0560 at 93.42 mph. His yellow 69 wheel-standing Camaro was sure leaving beautiful this weekend. Mr. Tim was given a 5 gallon pail of Renegade Race Fuels & Lubricants PRO 112+ fuel for his losing efforts. The lone semi-finalist was 2023 Classic Gear Jammers Champion, Charlie Wisecarver. We want to welcome both Charlie & Chad to CCRA this year & also let them know we appreciate them coming on board for our Sportsmanship Award sponsor. Charlie took on Mr Lynwood Daughtry in the semis. It was coin toss at the hit but Charlie let him back by at the big end. Wisecarver was dialed a 6.24, had a .0409 RT, & ran a 6.2731 at 102.76 mph. Scotty Galyean, another name we hadn't heard since the old IHRA days took the bye run to the finals in his beautiful silver first generation Camaro. Both drivers missed the tree in the finals but coming out on top was Mr. Lynwood. He was dialed a 6.38, had a .1315 RT, & ran a 6.4924 at 93.54 mph to take the win. Scotty spun at the hit, had a .1058 RT, ran a 7.0650 at 93.30 mph on his 6.84 dial. For the first time ever in 2024, we have a Series Sponsor, GBM Land and Construction. Having this extra sponsorship will allow us some "wiggle room" on various situations & we used some of it for Saturday's race. Based on the amount of entries, we were supposed to pay $1600.00 for 1st Place but THANKS to GBM/Brodie Mckee, we paid Mr. Lynwood $2000.00! He also received a $100.00 gift certificate from Altronics Inc, a can of FOGGIT, a certificate for a set of spark plugs from E3 Ignition, $100.00 gift certificate to Crew Chief Pro Software, $100.00 gift certificate to Edelbrock Performance, $100.00 gift certificate to COMP Cams, & a 5 gallon pail of fuel courtesy of Fuel Factory. Scotty received his runner-up winnings as well as a $50.00 gift certificate to Portatree Timing Systems, a certificate for a set of spark plugs from E3 Ignition, a $50.00 gift certificate from Edelbrock Performance, $50.00 gift certificate from COMP Cams, & a 5 gallon pail of fuel courtesy of Fuel Factory.
Russell Ghent received the Dunn Logging Company sponsored Paul Bunyan "Best Reaction Time" award for his .0078 RT during round 2 of eliminations. Don Sweeting, fighting "new car blues" was awarded the McLawhorn Racing Hard Luck Award. For the Wayside Landscapes & Supply Bounty Hunter Award, neither winner (Raymond Roland) nor runner-up (Al Brister) of our final race in 2023 at The Dragway at Coastal Plains Park were present so the bounty award was rolled over to Sunday's race. The Wisecarver Brothers sponsored Sportsmanship Award was given to Kevin Locklear. Kevin was beat by Scotty at 5 cars but then proceeded to help Scotty the next 2 rounds. The Performance Sealing and Striping Best Winning Package went to Scotty Galyean for his round 1 win. He was dialed a 6.90, had a .0186 RT, & ran a 6.9018 at 94.80 mph. Just like riding a bike, Scotty hasn't forgotten everything during his hiatus. Doyle Evans was awarded the Gutters by Design "Mind in the Gutter/Worst RT" for his .2562 RT during round 2 of eliminations.

Sunday's race was delayed a few hours due to a major oil down on the track but once the action got going, it went rapidly & we were able to compete our first race weekend of 2024. Mike Moller kicked off the day winning the Warren Engines sponsored Dash for Cash. He was dialed a 8.52 & ran a 8.5216 at 77.20 mph. He edged out 2 other racers that also went dead on. We pulled a random tech card from Saturday & Sunday's entries for the Half Moon Marketplace "Act of Giving Back" & Sterling Simmons was awarded the $35.00 Visa gift card. We had 31 entries make the first round call. First round was a battle of 2023 Champions as Kevin Locklear, 2023 CCRA-Carolina Class Racers Association Champion lined up against Charlie Wisecarver, 2023 Classic Gear Jammers Champion. Kevin came out on the losing end of this run but he didn't leave empty handed. He got the Victory Lane Golf Carts 1st Round Best Losing Package award. He was dialed a 6.60, had a .0879 RT, & ran a 6.6056 at 100.63 mph. Based on CCRA-Carolina Class Racers Association rules for 2024, all package awards must be on the + side & no red lights. Unfortunately round 2 of eliminations tested us on our own rules but we followed suit & made the correct calling. Each pair either had a red light at the hit or a breakout on top end so we were unable to award a Ford's Fuel and Propane/ Renegade Race Fuels & Lubricants 2nd Round Best Losing Package. We choose to carry this award over to 3rd round. Charlie Wisecarver lost in the 3rd round so he was given the Renegade Race Fuels & Lubricants PRO 112+ 5 gallon pail of fuel as well as his 3rd round losing money. Russell Ghent & Mike Moller would meet up as the first pair of the semis. Russ missed the tree on this one & Moller came out on top & was the first half of our final weekend finals. Next up was Ed McLawhorn & Steve Lucas. There was an .02 difference at the hit going to Lucas & he came out on top in this run. Ed was dialed a 6.91, had a .0674 RT & ran a 6.8926 at 93.71 mph. The 2 finalists are no strangers to the Winner's Circle & both guys would give anyone the shirts off their backs if needed. After a little back & forth action in the staging lanes, the coin flip was won by Moller taking the right lane for the finals. "The Slow Ride" was dialed a 8.51 & had the reaction time advantage with his .0290 RT taking the win over Lucas. Lucas was dialed a 7.10, had a .0529 RT, & ran a 7.0909 at 90.33 mph. Mike's two sons was present for this win & the smiles on all 3 of their faces was priceless; they were just missing Mrs. Jan! Once again today, we pulled from our extra sponsorship money courtesy of GBM Land & Construction to pay $2000.00 to the winner. Moller also received a $100.00 gift certificate from Altronics Inc, a can of FOGGIT, a certificate for a set of spark plugs from E3 Ignition, a certificate for 50% off one item from Zamp Racing, a $100.00 gift certificate from Edelbrock Performance, $100.00 gift certificate from COMP Cams, & a 5 gallon pail of fuel from Fuel Factory. Lucas received his race winnings as well s a certificate for a set of spark plugs from E3 Ignition, a $50.00 gift certificate from Meziere Enterprises, $50.00 certificate from Edelbrock Performance, $50.00 certificate from COMP Cams, & 5 gallons of fuel from Fuel Factory. Tanner Hiatt taking the driver's duties away from his dad, Terry, was awarded the Dunn Logging Company Paul Bunyan Award/Best Reaction Time for his .0002 in round 2 of eliminations. Sterling Simmons had a mishap with his two step at the hit during round 2 so he was given the McLawhorn Racing Hard Luck Award. The Wayside Landscapes & Supply Bounty Hunter award is was awarded to Curt Smith Jr. for taking out Saturday's runner-up, Scotty Galyean during round 1 as Saturday's race winner, Lynwood did not compete in Sunday's action. Dell Britt was chosen for the Wisecarver Brothers Sportsmanship Award for giving Mike Moller a gallon of fuel to make the finals in which he won! Tracy Robbins won the Best Winning Package sponsored by Performance Sealing and Striping. During round 1 of eliminations, Tracy was dialed a 5.85, had a .008 RT, & ran a 5.8505. Don Sweeting, still fighting those "New Car Blues" received the Gutters by Design Mind in the Gutter/Worst RT for his .4195 RT during R1.

On behalf CCRA, Leigh Anne Flynt, Dave & Gloria Ley, & myself Tabitha Moore Draughon, we want to THANK EACH & EVERY ONE of you for making this past weekend successful. Next up is NMCA this weekend at Rockingham Dragway for CCRA-Carolina Class Racers Association vs NMCA. Then we will be at KDS Motorsports May 4th & 5th.
