The third day of the K & N Filters ET Bracket Triple Crown was also a Sunoco Race Fuels ET Series points day for Woodburn racers in addition to the bonus payout in Electronics and Non-Electronics.

In Electronics, Kevin Heffington’s stellar .006 reaction time and 7.403 et in the finals earned him the win over Mark Dawson and the $3,000 payout.

Steve Stuart was the lone semi-finalist.
The 10.5 Outlaw Pro Street racers put on an outstanding show running the eighth-mile distance. Apple Valley, CA racer, Doug Sikora, was the top qualifier with a 4.291 at 177 mph. much to the delight of the fans and racers who had never seen this kind of performance. Eric Halverson met Barry Hobson in the finals after Paja Agatonovic and Jeff Dungey had lost in the semi-finals. Barry took a .007 starting line advantage but was the victim of Eric‘s 4.529 blast at 171 mph. Needless to say, we would love to see more of this.
In the Dragster/Roadster class, 2011 champion Ron Austin earned another victory. He met Ron Wirostek in the finals and used a .023 starting line advantage to earn the victory. Christina Presser earned the semi-final finish.
Casey Ladd defeated Dustin Day in the semi-finals of Jr. Fast but fell victim to Charlie Dietrich in the finals. It was a unique race, with both racers dialed at 7.90. Both racers fouled at the start, but the win went to Charlie, -.005 to Casey’s -.010. In Jr. Lightning, Boyd Eickmann earned the victory in a double break-out finish – Eickmann (.002 break-out) to Katie Day (.020 break-out). In Jr. Thunder, Trevin Walberg got his first win of the season, defeating Maria Marroquin in the finals.
