ImageWe were fortunate enough to have Armdrop Live come out to Atco Raceway this weekend, starring Rich Christensen along with his brother Kent, and President Brian Bossone. Rich and company brought a killer show for the fans and racers, with plenty of cash from sponsor NAPA up for grabs and a full race program of heads up, Arm Drop racing.

ImageMother Nature was not cooperative on Friday, giving us a few breaks and a late start to the rushed race program. Friday night's race turned into a possible final race, as we had no idea what the weather would do on Saturday. Rich Bruno in his wild Gremlin won the Armdrop competition on Friday, and if it turned out to be a washout Saturday, he would be the winner for the weekend.

ImageThe racers and fans were dedicated and determined on Saturday morning, sitting out the rain in their trailers and under the bleachers, hoping for a break in the weather to watch the show that Rich and crew are known for. The raindrops at Atco stopped early afternoon on Saturday, and by about 2:30, racing got underway. We ended up with four different fields, including cars in the 9.0, 10.0, and 11.0 range, as well as bikes mixed in with some killer quads. Familiar faces from the site were in attendance such as Carey Cable, Chris Ely, Dave Harvey Jr., Doug Frisch, and a few others. Doug Frisch made it all the way to the finals of his class where he was narrowly defeated by John Paone by .024 seconds.

Great pics ice man. I lost to a camaro that went 11.10 to my 11.22. I had him on the tree but he got around me and beat me by half a car. It's hard to overcome that kind of advantage. If you want to see the results look on 1320go.com, otherwise I would not have known because during eliminations they did not give you a timeslip. Look at Dougs race, it was a great one and he did a great job, congrats Doug on your runner up :cheers:
