Trio Earn Berths to IHRA World Finals

Saturday, October 3, 2015

Steven Ferrow of Chattanooga, Tenn., Travis Snoden of Mt. Sterling, Ky. and Christopher Marcum of Springfield, Mo., all punched their tickets to next week’s IHRA World Finals featuring Nitro Jam on Saturday by winning their classes in the Summit SuperSeries race as part of the IHRA Team Finals at Memphis International Raceway (MIR).

Ferrow won Box, Snoden won No Box and Marcum won Junior Dragster. Each driver is now eligible to participate in the IHRA World Finals on Oct. 9-10, luckily for them they won’t have far to travel because the World Finals will be contested at MIR.



In the Box final, Ferrow cut a near perfect .008 reaction light on the way to a pass of 4.785 seconds at 136.08 mph on a 4.77 dial in. His opponent, Gerald Franks of Mobile, Ala., had a decent light himself (.040) but his 6.690 on a 6.69 dial at 101.40 mph wasn’t enough to make up for the lost time at the starting line.

In the No Box final, Snoden had a perfect reaction light on the way to a 6.794 second pass at 98.47 mph on a 6.77 dial. Runner-up Shane Rees of Carthage, Mo., finished with a lap of 6.544 at 101.20 mph on a 6.53 dial.

Marcum was dialed in to near perfection with a lap of 8.177 seconds at 75.18 mph on an 8.17 dial. His opponent Blaine Rees of Carthage, Mo., finished with a lap of 9.007 seconds at 72.80 mph on an 8.97 index.

Team MIR racers had a rough go of it in the Summit SuperSeries on Saturday. Shane Stout of Jackson, Tenn., made to the second round of Box before bowing out to eventual runner-up Franks. John Castellaw III of Dyersburg, Tenn. (No Box) and Justin Poindexter of Millington, Tenn. (Jr. Dragster) both lost their first round matchup.

Competition at the IHRA Team Finals wraps up on Sunday when the teams from the 11 different tracks represented at MIR will battle it out for the coveted team championship. Gates open at 8 a.m., time trials at 10 a.m. and the main event begins at noon.
