Monday, April 21, 2014

The Summit Bracket Racing Series presented by: COMP Cams returned to Memphis International Raceway (MIR) over the weekend for the first time in over a month. The weather was perfect and the action on the drag strip was nonstop.The R.T. Turbines Jr. Dragsters produced a first time winner, Drew Mann Tracey out of the Motorvation Motorsports camp, and the R.T. Turbines D.O.T. Street in the D.O.T. saw David Elam from Covington, Tenn. pull out his second victory of the season with a win.  



 "There was some great racing this weekend," stated Tyler Crossnoe, MIR Drag Strip manager. "We saw a lot of familiar faces and also had a first time winner in the Jr. Dragsters. The weather cooperated with us and it was great to get the COMP Cams Series back out on the drag strip."

RT Turbines Jr. Dragsters

The future of our sport, the kids piloting the Jr. Dragsters, put on another great showing on Saturday night with a new winner for the season. Drew Mann Tracey out of the Motorvation Motorsports camp took home his first win of the season over Tyler Poindexter, both from Millington, Tenn. Both drivers posted great reaction times (.029 to a .032), slight advantage to Poindexter. Drew ran dead on his dial-in with a 10.338 elapsed time on his 10.33 dial-in as Tyler broke out by one-thousandth of a second, 8.039 off the 8.04 dial-in. Brianna Moore took her newly wrapped dragster to the semi-finals where her night ended just one round short of the finals.

Meadows left the starting line .011 too soon, turning on the red light and handing the automatic victory to Privett who powered to a 5.877 elapsed time at 115.94mph to go dead-on his 5.87 dial-in.
