That’s right, the lead singer of the country band TrainWreck from NE Ohio, Lou Greco, met head on with Vermillion’s Maddie Fenn, a young lady who’s racing career is really starting to take off, in the Abruzzi Transmissions “Box Super Roller. Fenn Dials a 6.31 against Greco’s 5.93. She leaves first with a .030 light. Greco’s light not that much better, but he makes it up at the other end by running dead-on his dial-in with a zero versus Fenn’s 6.366.
In the Foghorn Desings No Box Super Roller, we almost had another Obertanec (Steve) in the winner’s circle tonight. Nine times out of ten, when you go dead-on your dial-in with a four… the “W” should come up on your side of the lane, but that was not the case tonight. Rick Baehr had a .031 starting line advantage over Obertanec and took the stripe by .0174.

When you attend the Quick Fuel Technology Halloween Classic presented by Harland Sharp, there is more to the event than just racing. On Thursday racers and fans brought tons of jokes to race control for the announcing team of Mark, Skeet and Ron to read, but there was only one joke that stood out above them all. And it was submitted by one of the quietest individuals in the pit area…Norwalk’s Larry Hurst. Mickey Thompson Tires awarded Hurst with a set of Mickey Thompson Rear Slicks for having the best joke of the day!
Friday morning started off with the R&R Auto Body Pageant of Excellence.
Several dozen racers braved the cold temperatures to show off their 'pride and joys' to a panel of judges, hoping their vehicle would stand above the rest. The names of the winners are included in the current results above.
Friday was also Trick Flow Specialties Limerick Day! Who knew there were so many poets residing in the Summit Motorsports Park pit area this weekend? Unlike some of the jokes brought to the tower, these poems were definitely not recycled from the Internet. Besides following the Limerick rhyme scheme, all poems submitted had to have a drag racing theme. The panel of judges narrowed the selection down to five poems and the one that stood above them all was written by the duo of Mark and Katie Moreland, from Pioneer, OH. This couple won a Trick Flow Heat Carburetor that was manufactured by Quick Fuel Technology especially for Trick Flow.
And all roads lead to Saturday's, Trick Flow “Fright Night”. Racing begins at 8 a.m. with Accel Sportsman presented on time by TFC Transportation.
