Re: Pro-Mods and Fireworks 7/7 @ I-22

Luckily, or unluckily depending on how you look at it, no action has commenced here at I-22. They installed a new tree and have been fighting issues... The first qualifying session will be up shortly.

Dwayne Watkins just made a shakedown, knocking the tires off at the hit...

Also Robert Vinson just made a hit, and it SOUNDED like he banged the blower again... I will have to check.

Re: Pro-Mods and Fireworks 7/7 @ I-22 - Results Added

Rough session...

Jeff Byrd knocked the tires off at the hit, pedaled a couple times and wound up back and forth, up on two wheels, but saved it!






Nice runs for Chinault and Hallman...







Watkins knocked the tires off immediately again...



Everyone else with decent laps or traction issues...







RE had the flags waving and did a HUGE burnout!!

Semi-Finals

(R) Jerry Chinault – 4.379 et – 164.89 mph
(L) Jerry Prater – 4.316 et – 179.28 mph **(Winner)**

(L) Jeff Balton – 7.67 et – 56.73 mph
(R) Brad Porter – 4.70 et – 130.09 mph **(Winner)**

Balton tosses this one away with a -.006 Red… Porter nearly gave it back, all over the centerline, but he pulls it back and heads to the final…

Re: Pro-Mods and Fireworks 7/7 @ I-22 - Results Added

I could have gone the rest of my life without seeing that picture of Ron....OMG.
My eyes....my eyes..

Had a blast at I-22 last night. Every time Johnny gets behind the wheel...he pops off another personal best! Thanks Greg for a good track in terrible weather! One advantage of a slower car...we can get down the track.

Johnny and I couldn't do this without the awesome help and support we get from Big John and Lil John Sullivan and Gene Battoo Sweat! and Fluff! LOl! This is proving to be a great team!!

Double bump to the Praters....for coming out and the winning.

Great pictures also!

Like to say thanks to Brian for coming down and staying so long i know you were give out.We had alot of track issues but all and all it was a good night everybody stayed safe and the fans loved every minute of it 4.20 or 3.20 they don't really care our fans just love pro-mod racin.Thanks to Jeff and his side kick Mary for shooting all the great pictures.Got to meet some new people,thanks to Lil John for bringing them down and coming to help i know it was hard on him to watch and not race.If the good Lord's willing we will do it again September 1.Glad to have Jerry prater and his family back with us after what they have been through they got that "local tune up" figured out and made to the winner's circle again.Thanks again to everyone that came out.

Thanks Tim... I will admit while sitting in my truck at about 2:30am my time, I thought, "what the heck was I thinking covering 2 races in one day!"! But I felt like supporting both places was the right thing to do. Thanks as always to you guys, the hospitality at I-22 is always the best!

Re: Pro-Mods and Fireworks 7/7 @ I-22 - Results Added

Thanks for a great night of racing action to the staff of I-22, my "home" track. The racing and fireworks show was great. Also what a great memorial to Mr. Bill Haley, one of the original owners of I-22.
Good to see you as always Brian, I could not do what you do especially 2 races in 1 day in 100 degree weather.
A few pics of the action
