Summit Bracket Racing Series presented by COMP Cams Finals

Sunday, September 25, 2016
Team Memphis Determined

MEMPHIS, Tenn., September 25, 2016  – The Summit Bracket Racing Series presented by COMP Cams is a wrap for the 2016 season.  We saw great races and point’s positions change all year, but as the dust has settled and we are ready to announce TEAM Memphis for the IHRA Summit Team Finals, we want to first thank each and every competitor and their families and friends for the season long support of the program. 

We especially want to extend a special thank you to our series sponsors, Summit Racing Equipment, COMP Cams, R. T. Turbines, Rick’s Powder Coating and Foster’s Towing and Salvage.   The sponsor’s support is what makes it possible to continue to provide this type of program to the racing community.



The results from this week’s event in the R. T. Turbines Junior Dragster would make the difference between Summit SuperSeries and Track Champion to runner-up.  Both racers had to be on their game to make sure they took care of business.  Tara Taylor, was the points leader coming into the night with Drew “Mann” Tracey sitting just 22 points behind her in second. Tara Taylor would hold on to win the race with what she said was an ill handling race car over Devin Lowe.  Taylor with a .130 reaction time ran an 8.10 with an eight on a 7.95 dial in to Lowe’s .117 reaction time who ran an 8.51 with a seven on an 8.31 dial in.

The victory would also clinch the 2016 Track Champion and 2016 Summit SuperSeries Championship for Tara.  She will represent Memphis at the IHRA World Finals October 20-22, 2016.

The R. T. Turbines Junior Dragster 2nd Chance race would have Devin Johnson take the win with a .055 reaction time running an 8.59 with a five on an 8.60 dial in. 

For Rick’s Powder Coating Super Pro it would be Jesse Bobo looking to hold on to his 41 points lead over father, Jeff Bobo sitting in second.  The win and holding on to the lead means 2016 IHRA Summit SuperSeries and 2016 Track Champion to the one who prevails.  It would go deep in the race as Ferrell was on kill and Bobo who had struggled in recent weeks would have to go-rounds.  

The final would come down to Ron Minton of Millington, TN and Michael Hall of Olive Branch, MS.  Minton would take the win with a .025 reaction time running a 6.82 with a four on a 6.81 dial in over Hall who had a .024 reaction time running a 4.92 with a five on a 4.89 dial in.  

Jesse Bobo would hold on to the points lead taking the 2016 Track Champion as well as the 2016 Summit SuperSeries Championship and will also represent Memphis at the IHRA Summit World Finals the weekend of October 20-22, 2016.

In Foster’s Towing and Salvage, the closest point’s race on the card today had David Elam sitting just 11 points ahead of Kyle Rumley.  Elam looking to rebound from a tough race last week to hold on to the 2016 IHRA Summit SuperSeries Champions as well as 2016 Track Championship.  Elam would win round one and look for a buy-back to be the difference maker after taking a loss in round two. 

Unfortunately a little late on the tree in round three would put him in a wait and see position.  The final would come down to Kyle Rumley and T. J. Tracey, both drivers with something to gain from today’s performance.   For Tracey, a good finish puts him in the IHRA Summit Team Finals and for Rumley, it would be the 2016 Track Championship and the IHRA Summit SuperSeries Championship.  Rumley of Huntington, TN would take the win with a .012 reaction time running a 7.42 with a five on a 7.38 to Tracey of Millington, TN with a .041 reaction time running a 6.36 on a 6.33. 

Rumley would cover the points and then some to take over the points lead and win the 2016 Track Championship and 2016 IHRA Summit SuperSeries and represent Memphis at the IHRA Summit World Finals the weekend of October 20-22, 2016.

With the biggest points lead on the card we move to RT Turbines DOT/Street where Tommy Jackson held a 47 point lead coming into the day’s race and was looking to keep that lead intact and possibly make it to the final round for the sixth time this season.  Chris Foster who has had a very consistent year was looking for a different outcome. Foster would look to be making a move until round four where he and Jackson met and Jackson was able to move on. 

The final would come down to Tommy Jackson of Millington, TN and Cliff Hubbard of Millington, TN.  The win would go to Hubbard with a .044 reaction time running a 15.18 with a seven to Jackson’s breakout run with a .058 reaction time running a 13.82 with a five on a 13.85 dial in. 

Tommy Jackson would make his sixth final and hold on to the 2016 Track Championship.
