Mother Nature Shows Ugly Face Again, Washes Out Index Portion of Bristol Event
As we have seen all to much in 2014, Mother Nature washed away another day of racing for us. After raining the majority of Saturday, we were forced to eliminate all Index Racing for the day. Time constraints did not allow enough time to begin the race and finish it at any point during event.
Hannah Turner Captures 8&9 Victory With Great Driving in Thunder Valley
Local Bristol, TN racer Hannah Line drove the wheels off her hotrod on Sunday to capture the 8&9 Year Old victory. In the largest 8&9 field of the season, Hannah put together a great package in the finals to bring home the SEJRA victory!
In the finals Miss Line met up with New York racer Robert Croce. Hannah brought her Junior Specialties powered Mike Bos Chassis Craft built ride to the starting line ready for battle. She took the early lead with a great .061 reaction time, that coupled with her 12.097 on the 12.07 dial was more than enough to earn the victory!
Congratulations to Hannah and her entire team on an outstanding race win!
Carpenter Fights Through 100+ Car Field to Take 10-12 Year Old Age Group
Michael Carpenter and his team faced the toughest 10-12 Age Group seen this season! Seeing over 115 entries for that class alone, Michael was forced to be on his game all day long, and he was.
In the finals Michael brought his Motivational Tubing built machine to the starting line to take on Braylon Kuhn of Pennsylvania. When the tree fell Michael took a big starting line advantage with a great .021 reaction time. That would be all he needed as he pedaled to an 8.977 on his 8.90 dial to bring home the race win!
Congratulations to Michael and his entire team on a great victory at Thunder Valley!
Powell Is Spot On to Earn 13-14 Age Group Victory at Bristol
Karsyn Powell made the trip from Indiana worthwhile on Sunday by bringing home a hard fought victory at the Huddleston Performance Jr. Nationals presented by Mike Bos Chassis Craft. In a field of nearly 130 cars, Karsyn worked through a number of tough rounds to find the Winner's Circle!
In the finals Karsyn matched up with Florida racer Kyle Anderson. This one would be over before it got started as Kyle left the red light glowing as they passed the tree. Karsyn would still put together a nice package with a .060 light and running a 7.891 on the 7.90 dial for the victory.
Congratulations to Karsyn and the entire Powell team on a very tough 13-14 Age Group victory!
McClure Battles Largest Field of Competition to Come Out Victorious in 15-17 Age Group
Austin McClure and his team made a very long trek to join us in Bristol. Coming all the way from Topeka, KS, they made the drive home a little shorter on Sunday by capturing a huge 15-17 Age Group win.
In a field of 160+ competitors, Austin brought his Huddleston Performance powered machine to the starting line in the finals ready to do business. When the tree came down he put up a nice .037 and was able to combine that with a nice 7.987 on his 7.96 dial to grab the race win!
Congratulations to Austin and the entire McClure team on one of the hardest victories of the year thus far!
