Summit Bracket Racing Series presented by COMP Cams Results

Tuesday, August 9, 2016
Race nine of the Summit Bracket Racing Series presented by COMP Cams is in the books and it was one to remember.  A race scheduled to start at 6 p.m. on Saturday, August 6 was pushed back due to technical issues and by the time it was all said and done, we wrapped up in the early morning hours of Sunday, August 7.  

First and foremost, we want to thank all the racers, staff and family members that stuck it out with us to the end.  The points race is so tight and the schedule we have makes it difficult for events to be re-scheduled, so it was very important to the participants that race number nine was completed on the scheduled weekend. 

The R.T. Turbines DOT/Street class saw racer, Tommy Jackson, II of Millington, TN take his Camaro from round one to the finals in flawless fashion as Chris Foster of Brighton, TN had a round one loss making his way back to the finals with a buy back opportunity.  He took advantage of it and met Tommy Jackson in the finals.  Jackson would take the final with a .027 reaction time running a 13.717 on a 13.71 dial in at 101.73 miles per hour to Foster's .039 red reaction time, making it clean sailing for Jackson to the Winner's Circle.  

In the points chase the lead extended over race eight by six, but the new leader in points is Tommy Jackson, Jackson jumped from three in the points to take the lead after race nine.  Top five in points are Jackson, Hubbard, C. Foster, Sanders and B. Foster, Sr. all still within striking distance of the track championship crown.  

Rick's Powder Coating Super Pro class was one of the biggest fields of the year with visitors on the IHRA Pro-Am Tour jumping in to extend their racing day.  With a tight points battle at the top and all the way through the field, the racers needed to be on their game.  At the end of the night it would come down to Doug Foley, Jr. of Statesville, NC paired against Chad Roach of Reagen, TN. The winner would be Foley with a perfect reaction time running a 5.017 on a 5.00 dial in to Roach's .010 reaction time running a 5.328 on a 5.31 dial in. In the points chase, Jesse Bobo was able to extend his lead to 38 points over still second place Buddy Ferrell.  The top five is rounded out by J. Bobo, Stout and Parsons.

Foster Towing & Salvage No Box would be no different, racers from the IHRA ProAm jumping in to mix it up in the class.  The final would see Wes Neeley of Florence, MS paired against David Elam of Covington, TN.  Elam, a regular at the track, would be a little too quick on the start with a .008 red reaction time giving the win to Neely with a .022 reaction time running a 7.646 on a 7.44 dial in. 

Rounding out the classes run at the Summit Bracket Racing series presented by COMP Cams was the R.T. Turbines Junior Dragster class.  Current points leader Tara Taylor would find herself out of contention for the win going red in round two on the night.  The finals would be all Texas with Harley Herbert from Port Neches, TX pairing against Mackenzie Murdock of Orange, TX.  Herbert would take the win at the tree with a .043 reaction time running a 7.941 on a 790 dial in to Murdock's .168 reaction time running a 12.172 on a 12.09 dial in.  The points position remained the same after race nine, with Taylor extending her points lead to 9 to Tracey, followed by Malone, Rose and Lowe in the top five.
