CECIL COUNTY DOORSLAMMER DRAGS VIDEO REVIEW

As racers continue to put their cars together and finish upgrades, turnouts in
all classes continue to increase. Many cars set personal bests and new track
records were set as the rain held off.

In Outlaw Big Tire, Ken Doak debuted his supercharged 1969 Camaro this
year sporting a new Hemi powerplant. Gary Naughton who is still shaking
the bugs out of Ken Doak's gold colored 67 supercharged Camaro were
both very impressive. Doak set the Big Tire track record with a 6.99,
207 and Naughton went a 7.28, 197. "Smokin" Joe Schroeder also brought
out his new supercharged Camaro with a 526 Allen Johnson Hemi.
Schroeder's day was short-lived as he would kick out the driveshaft
during the second round of qualifying. John Schroeder came out strong
the first round of qualifying but missed the remainder of the day as a
result of unknown issues. Charlie Micallef took the number one
qualifier money, but had a nitrous problem first round, which cost him
the win. James Houston was back again this month posting consisten
7.80's but his day was short-lived when he faced off against Doak who
set the track record in the first round. In the end, Doak would face
off against his other car (Naughton) and Doak coasted for the win.
Congrats to Ken Doak and his team for setting a new track record, and
for having such a successful start to the season as they were troubled
with various issues that plagued them throughout last season.

DOORSLAMMING VIDEO ACTION ON THE EAST COAST

Atco Raceway's Quick 8 started this Sunday with a light field (5 cars). Not sure
if it is a little early in the season or the possibility of rain showers and
temps in the 50's that kept some racers from showing. We did see Joe Newsham lay
down a 6.81 @ 216 with his Mustang in the first round.
