660 Nationals completed

08-02-2015

The Cars Protection Plus 660 Top Bulb Nationals finished up today about 3:20pm. The weather finally cooperated, giving us 3 days of sunshine, allowing for fantastic racing. Thank you to all the racers who came in to support the event! It was a success, so much so we are doing it again next year, so you can put it on the calendar: CARS Protection Plus 660 Top Bulb Nationals II will be July 29-31, 2016! Here is a recap of the finals:

Day 1 of the CARS Protection Plus 660 Top Bulb Nationals in is the books! Great day of racing, run after run of tight packages! Congratulations to Randy Scheuer from Toledo, OH, piloting his dragster to the $10,000 win over Dennis Meade's '83 Camaro.

W - Scheuer, 4.72 dial in, .0030 reaction time, 4.7345 elapsed time, 146.34mph
R/U - Meade, 6.00 dial in, .0073 reaction time, 6.0169 elapsed time, 111.06mph.
Margin of victory .0067

_______________________________

Day 2 of the CARS Protection Plus 660 Top Bulb Nationals in is the books! More great racing all day long, the final round came down to 2 dragsters, Fred Krakora from Grafton, OH, and PRP's own Jacob Meinert. Krakora with the slight advantage on the christmas tree then runs dead the dial with a zero!

W - Krakora, 4.68 dial in, .0148 reaction time, 4.6807 elapsed time, 145.63mph

_______________________________

The first CARS Protection Plus 660 Top Bulb Nationals finished up at 3:20 on Sunday afternoon. The weather was fantastic all 3 days, and so was the racing. Day 3 found Fred Krakora in the final for the second day in a row, facing Russ Benish in his '69 Camaro. It was a perfect example of the tight racing from the entire event, with Russ .011 on the tree, and Fred right behind with a .015. Fred gets 2 in a row, running dead on, 4.7092 on a 4.70 dial in, to Russ' 5.9566 on a 5.95. Fred gets to the finish line first by .0035!

W - Krakora, 4.70 dial in, .0152 reaction time, 4.7092 elapsed time, 146.15mph
R/U - Benish, 5.94 dial in, .0113 reaction time, 5.9566 elapsed time, 114.83mph
