Gaynor/Ashley Score Golf Cart Win
The team of John Gaynor (driver) and Chris Ashley (co-pilot) were better than all the rest at the Golf Cart Challenge held Friday night at the NAPA Auto Parts Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series at Woodburn Dragstrip on September 7, 2012. Gaynor & Ashley were facing Justin Sibley (driver) and Lloyd Flatum (co-pilot) in the finals and with a 13.84 dial-in, Gaynor launched with an excellent .021 reaction time. Sibley dialed at 13.13 which gave Gaynor .7 of a second handicapped head start. Knowing that he needed a good light, Sibley gave it his best shot, but was too quick by .04. His red light start gave the win to Gaynor and Ashley.
The best light of competition occurred in the first round with the team of Travis Hilton and Stevie Wong who scored a .013 reaction time. That feat was duplicated in round two by the team of Kristen Ball and Renee Lesser. Gaynor’s .021 in the finals was the third best of the evening. The quickest run in the 330’ drag race was the 8.522 recorded by Mark & Billie Tarabochia in round 2.
