This page covers Super Stock and Stock the three Super classes and Motorcycle, Super Pro and Pro Bracket.
Sunday was one of the smothest days of racing I have witnessed in a long time. Only one small top end mishap and a couple ten minute clean-ups had all racing complete by 5:30pm.
Super Stock final
Jody Lang was his dominant self on the weekend doubling up in Stock and Super Stock. In Super Stock he waded through five rounds of elimination's having nothing worse than an .033 light. some of those he took out included Division Six hitters like Norm LaPoint, Sean Cour and Mark Faul. He also defeated Brian Thompson before taking out transplanted Division Seven (now living in Washington State) standout Brian Weber.
In Stock as stated above it was Jody Lang getting the win. Jody's lights were great in Super Stock, but they were even better in Stock as his worst in elimination's was a .027. Through five rounds of elimination's he defeated multi-time national record holder and division winner Bruce Flodin in round one with a .033 pakage. Then he was .013 off a perfect run against another multi-time Wally winner, Cal Method. In round three he defeated a red lighting Shawn Kvaas and in the semis it was Dave Barcelone walking away the loser to another strong .034 pakge by LAng. In the final he defeated local standout Dave Rastad. A .025 pakage including a .017 light was too much for Rastad, as he was forced under his 12.09 dial to try and get the stripe.
It's not very often you guy a race doubling up at a divisional race, but to get two guys to do it is very very rare. Kelowna driver Mike Shannon, who has been hot lately, was the second guy to walk away with two Wallys. After a win in Boise he came to Mission on a roll and continued his unbeaten to 10-0 in Super Comp. Counting his Super Gas win, his round record is 18-1. At Mission, he defeated Rick Dearinger with a perfect light then Mike Dalrymple, Randy Beck, Andy Scheu and fellow Canuck Scott Taylor in the final. Taylor was way off on the starting line leaving with a .077 rt, forcing him just over 2/100ths under the 8.90 index.
Mike Shannon's second win of the day took place in Super Gas. Through five rounds of elimination's his worst light was a .025 and he had a dead on 9.90 in the semi finals (and a .012 light) against Dave Archambaul. He also defeated Greg Hehr and Ron MacKenzie in the earlier rounds and he had a single in round one. In the final he took out George Scott in his very nice metallic blue Grand Am. both drivers were solid on the tree with .012 and .017 lights, but Shannon was closer to the 9.90 index, running just .002 off. Scott went 9.914
Defending Division Six champ Tom Manfred let the Super Street final get away, as he took a bunch too much stripe against winner Todd Simms. Tom had .05 on the tree but went way under (10.869) the 10.90 index, taking almost a .08 stripe. He will be kicking himself for a while on that race. Simms gladly took the win. He defeated J. Denton, Megan Ellingson, Steve Lowe and Justin Sibley to reach the final round. Manfred was almost perfect in round one, as he had a .003 package in defeating Becky Lindsey
Saturday Final qualfying and Shootout results
In the Electronics shootout, Peter Reidel defeated Trevor Ritchie. Reidel was .009 better at the tree and was right on his 7.09 dial. Ritchie was one off his 6.78 dial
