Race Pages NMRA World Finals Big Block Forum Members ink
Got my copy of Race pages last night. Several of us made INK in Race pages this month regarding the NMRA World Finals in Bowling Green KY.
Doug Benton and I are in the Open Comp qualifying and final points. I qualified #12 with a t.012 RT and Doug qualified # 27 with a .056. Neither of us made eliminations due to mechanical failure.
James Garrett got a lot of Ink in True Street. Quote:
Meanwhile, at the 11-second mark, an epic 4-way battle had been fought between James Garrett, Robert Oliver, Zand Reed and Shane Sherwood for top honors. The first pass saw Garrett taking the early lead with an 11.123, but once everyone had a handle on the track, it would be Oliver sneaking ahead with an 11.056 to Garrett’s second round 11.097. The third round slowed the pair down into the twenties, while Reed surged ahead with his best pass and 11.1-even and Sherwood clicked off an 11.279 to go with his previous .240 and .310. In the end, the score was Garrett winning the 11-second bracket with an 11.171, followed by Oliver at 11.254, Reed at 11.265 and Sherwood with an 11.276 average – it jut doesn’t get much closer than that.
Race pages printed a picture of the class winners with this caption under James’ car: James Garrett was getting the job done in his badass ’69 Mustang, running 11.123, 11.097 and 11.293 for an 11.171 second average and the category win.
Phillip Oakley also got a lot of ink in Bracket 1.
In Bracket 1, there were 32 entries, with a unique semifinal situation. Phillip Oakley had two entries into B1 – his ’05 Mustang (This is actually Bobby Small’s Mustang) and a dragster. Entering brackets twice isn’t that unusual, except that Oakley took both entries to the semifinals on opposite sides of the ladder, giving him a real chance of having to race himself in the finals. In his first semifinal match, he drew Butch Sears. Both drivers left with reaction times within .008 seconds of each other. As the pair approached the lights, they were neck and neck, with Oakley crossing first, a 5.001 on a 5.00 dial, to Sears’ 6.214 on a 6.20 dial, for a razor-thin .005 second margin of victory. In the next Semifinal pair, Oakley raced Brian Barnard. Oakley got a slight advantage at the tree, but a .001 second breakout advanced Barnard to the final, to again race Oakley. This time it was Barnard with the starting line advantage, cutting a stellar .003 light to Oakley’s .013. At the stripe, Barnard was ahead by a nose, crossing .018 seconds ahead of Oakley, securing the Bracket 1 win.
Now how often does that happen, you nearly race YOURSELF in the finals LOL!
Race pages also printed pictures of Bobby’s Mustang and Oakley’s Dragster.
