Sunday 26 May


WOW we finally got a to complete a race.

Sunday was a great day for racing MANDRA had 25 cars signed in, weather was great, pits were a little soggy in the morning but dried fast.

GREG MAUCHAMER had low rt in first round of time shots with a .0069 looking good for a possible bye run in first round.

In the 2nd round of time shots, BILL WERT said hold my beer and laid down a .0001 rt.

Unfortunately MARK SANTEE broke giving us an even field with no BYE  for Bill.

I think everyone was a little rusty with 9 red lights in 1st round.

RANDY CAMPBELL saved our reputation with a .0048 rt. 

ROUND  2 brought more red than green lights.

Paul costly came through with a .0221 light.

ROUND  3 everyone settled down,
ANTHONY PICONE laid down a .0021 to take out PAUL COSTLY. 

In the semi-finals ANTHONY PICONE had a bye run into finals and BRIAN YARRISON taking out GEOFF SOTAC to move into the finals.

This was a really cool  pairing for the final.

ANTHONY had a .0512 light to BRIAN`s .1168 light.  ANTHONY ran a 11.88 on a 11.87 dial in and BRIAN running a 12.78 on a 12.72 giving ANTHONY the win.

CONGRAULATIONS to ANTHONY PICONE, BRIAN YARRISON and GEOFF SOTAC.

Just a little side note, if you are not racing one day go to staging lanes and watch MANDRA roll in.
I think we have the best cars of any club. We have gassers, alters, dragsters, muscle cars, super stockers, 8 second cars, 13 second cars and everything in between.
