TIME AWAY FROM TRACK BODES WELL FOR ENDERS

Up until Sunday, this year’s Western Swing has been a bust for two-time Pro Stock series champion Erica Enders. However, she pulled into Seattle rested and ready after a Wine Country tour in Northern California and a rafting trip on the McKenzie River in Oregon and some sightseeing at Seattle’s iconic Pike Place Market before qualifying started at Pacific Raceways. That R&R worked its magic, as she rebounded with a No. 4 spot in the Northwest Nationals order.

“Mark and Marshall Stockseth, the husband and wife who sponsor us and Matt and Angie [Smith in the ProStock Motorcycle class], they invited me to the Wine Country to go wine tasting with them. And in the 14 years I’ve raced in Sonoma, I’ve never taken the time to do that. So it was a first-time treat for me,” she said.

They toured the Opus One, Jordan, and Far Niente wineries.

BOWMAN EARNS $100K FOR HIS WSOPM VICTORY

 

 Considered the biggest race in Pro Mod history, Mike Bowman didn’t flinch.

Bowman raced into the history book by capturing the title at the inaugural Drag Illustrated World Series of Pro Mod winner takes all $100,000 race.

Bowman, in his 1969 Chevelle, beat Steven Whiteley in his 2014 Cadillac, in the final round.

HIGHT DOMINATES AT NORTHWEST NATIONALS

There is good. There is great. And then there is Robert Hight’s weekend in Seattle.

Most drivers only dream of a weekend as dominant as the one Hight, crew chief Jimmy Prock, and the John Force Racing team enjoyed at Pacific Raceways, as the driver of the Auto Club Chevrolet Camaro had low elapsed time in seven of his eight runs, claimed the No. 1 qualifying position and earned his second win in three races at the 30th annual NHRA Northwest Nationals.

BROWN OVERPOWERS UNDERDOG McMILLEN IN SEATTLE TOP FUEL FINAL

It was experience against perseverance, this Top Fuel final Sunday at the NHRA Northwest Nationals near Seattle between Antron Brown and Terry McMillen.   

It was a three-time series champion on the verge of 660 round-wins when he arrived against an earnest School of Hard Knocks graduate who had 45 round-wins and treated his crew members to steak dinners when they won a single race-day match-up.

SKILLMAN EARNS THIRD WIN IN FOUR RACES WITH SEATTLE VICTORY

Just two rounds.

That is all that stood between Drew Skillman and a potential sweep of the Western Swing as the young racer earned his second win of the three-race west coast stretch on Sunday with a victory over Erica Enders at the 30th annual NHRA Northwest Nationals at Pacific Raceways. The result afforded Skillman his third total win in the last four races and sixth of his career as the driver of the Ray Skillman Chevrolet Camaro continues to peak at just the right time.
