The galleries are shorter than normal folks, we were at Maple Grove in the morning and made it to Cecil by the Semis for all classes. Hope you enjoy!

Image Lynn Townes takes his second win in as many races at the latest installment of the Real Street Car Shootout at Cecil County Dragway. Lynn was the #1 qualifier for the day, and just had the car dialed in just about perfect for most of the day. During the semifinals, he took on the always tricky Walt Haas, catching Walt sleeping at the tree. Walt ended up breaking out, putting Lynn into the finals. In the finals, he took on Cliff Sebring, and it turned into a double breakout situation with Lynn being closer to the Index and taking home the win for the day.

ImageIn 10.0 Index, it was no surprise for us to arrive to the track to see Mike Romeo in the #1 qualifier spot and Carey Cable in the #2 spot. Also joining the pair in the semi finals was Lee Grinnell, who we were all happy to see back at the track, and Bill Dutka. Mike and Carey made it through the semis and lined up against each other in the finals. Carey went .007 red, giving the win away to Romeo, while Carey put a 10.002 pass on the boards and Mike ran it out with a 9.945. If you remember, Mike went red in the finals of the last 10.0 Index race at Cecil, so that seems to be out of his system for now.

Image It was nice to see a few more of the racers in the 275 Radial Class had their cars ready to go for this up and coming class. Don Barnett took the #1 qualifier spot with a 5.221 pass, Adam "Guppy" Sailor right behind him in the #2 spot with a 5.390. All of the racers in this class had a real challenge getting down the track on such a small tire, knowing when to get on and off the throttle in order to beat the racer in the other lane. The final round was Don Barnett versus Ed Thomas. Ed did not make the call to the line as he had some transmission problems, giving Don his second and back-to-back win in this class at the Cecil County Real Street Car Shootout race program.
