Sunoco Race Fuels ET Series #9 & Super Shifter Series #2 – June 5, 2011
It was definitely a good day for racing. This is especially true for racers named McGhee, Kielman, Weber, Reese, and Flett. They were each class winners at the Sunoco Race Fuels ET Series and Super Shifter Series event held at Woodburn Dragstrip on June 5th. The weather seems to have made a turn for the better, and except for the one minor delay due to transmission fluid on the track, the day was truly enjoyable. Jeremy McGhee made his first 2011 appearance and showed the boys how to earn the victory. Gary Erickson was only .001 on the red side in the final against McGhee. Matt Kielman met David Chun in the Pro finals and ran closer to his number in a race that was decided by .011. Jerry Weber used a .022 reaction time to out-run Dave Wilson in the finals of Sportsman. David Reese, Jr. said, “I have been trying for 12 years to win an event and today was my day.” He downed Roger Wolff in the Bike/Sled finals. There is quite a battle emerging in the Super Shifter class as three racers are tied after two events. In today’s event, John Flett’s impressive .008 reaction time in the finals sealed the victory over Randy Ashley. Flett, Ashley, and Steve Erickson are tied for the lead in the Super Shifter Series at this time. David Pracht drove his ’70 Skylark to the win over Steve Stuart in the Run Tuff Class.
