Dave Bronec ~ Fall Transbrake Champion

For the Fall ET Transbrake category, it was an end-of-the-year charge that led to the championship that was not decided until the final event.

At the first event on September 6th it was Dale Kraxberger getting the victory over Alan Morrill when Morrill encountered mechanic issues and couldn’t run the number. Kraxberger. The next event, from the Fall Classic, brought together a final round between Ryan Schaefer and recent Race of Champions victor Nicholas Shepherd. In the finals, Shepherd had the reaction time advantage by about .01, but Schaefer nailed the ET to earn the victory.

The third event of the series featured a final round between Tony Price and Dom Andreotti.  ‘The Hit Man’ raced down to a double-breakout finish separated by only .005 in favor of Tony Price. Passing the halfway mark, the point’s standings were as follows: Tony Price with 160, Mike Hansen with 150, and Ryan Schaefer with 140.

For event number four, last year’s Champion Dave Bronec defeated current point’s leader Tony Price by virtue of a breakout by .007 to drift himself to within 30 points of Price for the lead.

At the final event, it was again Dave Bronec in the finals, this time against Raymond Rippe. An exciting final round was ahead as both drivers left with stellar .009 reaction times, with the win in a double-breakout contest going to Bronec by just .020. With that win, Bronec earned the points necessary to win the season championship over Tony Price.
