Re: Rocket City Showdown - Huntsville Dragway June 21-22

Eliminations Round #1

(L) Bil Clanton – 3.993 et – 183.90 mph **(Winner)**
(R) Mike Martin – 4.865 et – 141.38 mph

Clanton with a little wiggle in the middle of the track, but has plenty to take the win…

(L) Shawn McLemore – N/T **(Winner)**
(R) Andy Wells – N/T

McLemore had a broke bye as Wells could not make the call… McLemore rolled the beams and did not get a time...

(L) Allen Vinson – 4.723 et – 149.60 mph
(R) Kevin Reed – 3.993 et – 183.08 mph **(Winner)**

Reed gets his first career 3 second lap here to take the win!!

(L) Todd Quick – 4.539 et – 156.14 mph
(R) Joe Baker – 4.028 et – 181.97 mph **(Winner)**

Baker is still a little off the pace from last night’s test lap, but has plenty to move on here…

(L) Myles Parker – 4.709 et – 150.35 mph
(R) Dwayne Watkins – 3.910 et – 188.60 mph **(Winner)**

Watkins has found his groove today and looks like he has the car to beat right now!

(L) Jeff Balton – 6.037 et – 91.63 mph **(Winner)**
(R) Neal Light – N/T

Light turned both bulbs on… When Balton turned the pre-stage on, Light went on the two step, back off and back on… When the tree dropped the ’57 burped and coasted to a stop… Balton needed the luck as he was very sideways, off and on the throttle…

(L) Kelvin Brown – 4.999 et – 143.27 mph **(Winner)**
(R) Tim Segars – N/T

As mentioned before, Segars could not make the call giving Brown the single…

(L) Rick Murray – 4.157 et – 164.53 mph **(Winner)**
(R) Matt Davis – 4.326 et – 167.79 mph

Davis fell off his early pace while Murray stepped up his game to take the win…

Re: Rocket City Showdown - Huntsville Dragway June 21-22

There was a pretty significant delay during bracket racing, so Promod should be up around 9:00pm.

Re: Rocket City Showdown - Huntsville Dragway June 21-22

Eliminations Round #2

(L) Kelvin Brown – 4.81 et – 143.27 mph **(Winner)**
(R) Rick Murray – N/T

Murray could not get the car to fire giving Brown a single to the semifinal round…




(L) Shawn McLemore – N/T
(R) Bil Clanton – 4.20 et – 146.30 mph **(Winner)**

McLemore left before the tree was activated again… Clanton was off the throttle early, not sure if he saw the red light or not…



(L) Joe Baker – 7.236 et – 66.57 mph **(Winner)**
(R) Kevin Reed – 4.781 et – 111.19 mph

Reed goes -.003 RED and both cars go into shake, but Baker moves on to the semis…



(L) Jeff Balton – N/T
(R) Dwayne Watkins – 3.896 et – 188.76 mph **(Winner)**

Watlkins with another great run, but it was insignificant as Jeff Balton suffered a horrific accident at the top end, shooting across the track behind Watkins and into the wall hard, then back across again…. Jeff got out of the car under his own power and is OK!

Re: Rocket City Showdown - Huntsville Dragway June 21-22

Again I want to mention, a major major crash for Jeff Balton, but he is OK.. The damage is substantial and we will be down for quite awhile...

But again, Jeff walked away and thats what matters right now.

Tough break for Jeff Balton... He worked all night to get the car ready and left at 5:00am this morning to get here and race...

Re: Rocket City Showdown - Huntsville Dragway June 21-22

Final Round

(L) Joe Baker – 4.60 et – 110.29 mph
(R) Dwayne Watkins – N/T **(Winner)**

Well a crazy end to a crazy day… Baker goes -.037 RED, Dwayne gets a green light and clearly hauls the mail, but nothing comes up on the scoreboard… Checking the computer Watkins got no incrementals, but was clearly the winner…

It looked like another killer run… Congrats to Dwayne & Crew, badass hotrod all day!!

Re: Rocket City Showdown - Huntsville Dragway June 21-22

Congrats to Dwayne and crew on the win. So sorry to see Bolton crash but glad he is "okay", as far as getting out of the car and able to walk. Kudos to Mr. Baker on the runner up. Another great job by our friend, the score keeper and photographer Brian Cupp. Thanks for all you do.
I would like to offer a special thanks to ALL the racers and teams who came out and provided us with a great show Friday and Saturday.

Hats off to Rocky and M&M race cars for putting on a great show. Congrats to Dewayne and crew on the win. Thanks to shot by "Taco" for the great photos.

I would also like to thank Big Money racing, Charles Mckay and Don Stroud for helping this Rookie get started. Don is and always will be a big part in the stude. Shawn Mclemore.
