Summit Bracket Racing Series Presented by COMP Cams - Race 2

Tuesday, March 4, 2014

March 4, 2014 - The Winter Storm of 2014 brought racing to a close on Saturday night by causing the cancellation of Sunday's event, but Saturday's race was filled with steep competition making the points chase that much more intense.  As the night came to a close the racing was intense and the competition at it's best, last weeks winners battling to get back to the top and competitors looking to bump them off the top spot! 

RT Turbines Jr. Dragsters

Kicking off the second race of the season, there were a few upsets in the early rounds but two familiar faces pulled alongside each other in the final round of RT Turbines Jr. Dragsters. Justin and Tyler Poindexter moved through the competition again this week to have another Brother vs. Brother shootout in the finals. Justin got some payback from last week, taking the event win over brother, Tyler, with a .030 reaction time and running dead on his dial-in with a 7.927 @ 79.18mph. Tyler slows to an 8.018 @ 78.01mph off his 7.98 dial-in. Drew Mann Tracey, based out of Millington, TN, from the Motorvation Motorsports team was the lone semi-finalist of the evening, rounding out the RT Turbines Jr. Dragsters category.

B&B Towing Footbrake


As eliminations started, the theme of the night was already setting its pace, the action in B&B Towing Footbrake was going to be competitive all night long. Round after round, packages were being thrown down with exceptional reaction times and skill on display. As the final round came to the staging lanes, two of the area’s toughest racers were competing for all the marbles. Caffey Broadus from Olive Branch, MS came out victorious over Blytheville, AR’s David Bell. As the drivers left the starting line, both recorded .028 reaction times. Broadus runs a 5.888 @ 116.08mph on a dial-in of 5.88, putting a .036 package on the table. Bell, tapping the brakes goes a 6.411 @ 107.27mph on his 6.40 dial-in to give the event win to Caffey Broadus with a margin of victory of .003 of a second at the finish line. Troy Poindexter from Millington, TN finished in the semi-finalist position and Steve Wilson and David Ciarloni were the quarter-finalists.

Rick’s Powder Coating Super Pro


The Super Pro category is one of the most competitive classes in bracket racing and that was put on display on Saturday evening. From the very first matchup in Round 1, incredible runs were being posted and some were not good enough to earn a round win. As the quarter-finals came to the staging lanes, there were seven competitors left standing – four dragsters and three door cars. Eliminations continued on and the final round pitted 2013 Track Champion Rusty Ashmore from Southaven, MS in his ’69 Firebird against Shane Stout’s Hub City Tire Company ’11 Mullis dragster based out of Jackson, TN. Stout took the win in the dragster leaving the starting line with a .005 reaction time and stopping the clocks at a 4.799 @ 137.98mph off his 4.78 dial-in. Ashmore turns in a .018 reaction time and a 6.672 elapsed time at 101.94mph off his 6.66 dial-in handing the win to Shane Stout. Shane dedicated this victory to his engine builder, Tracy Dennis, owner of Sunset Racecraft Racing Engines, who tragically lost his life the day before this event.
