The weather is perfect at Woodburn Dragstrip so you better come out to see a terrific show. Yesterdays performance by all the teams was outstanding which is sure to be improved on for Sunday. We may very likely see records be broken again.
Forecast shows good weather in Woodburn. So come out and see the Baddest Race cars on the planet, AA Supercharged at Woodburn Drag Strip. We will be running 2 races this weekend. Qualifying was set during the cancelled opener in May. Eliminations for the opener will be run on Saturday, Runs will also be counted as qualifying at the same time during the Oldies But Goodies Race.
Racing to resume in Boise Idaho at the great Firebird Raceway facility. Come out and join us at the always friendly New family operated track. Make sure you stop by the AA Supercharged pits and say hi to the race teams.
The Opener at Woodburn Raceway started out with a great day of qualifying. Mitch Chamberlin driving the lethal Rod Father set the pace with a stout 6.62et @ 214mph and ran all 3 qualifying attempts in the same range. Howard Anderson was a close second with a 6.65 et. Unfortunately the weather did not hold up for eliminations on Sunday. The track cancelled the race after looking at the weather forcast for the rest of the day.
Woodburn Raceway - New speed record set!!!
The make-up Race for the rained out Opener was held on Saturday during qualifying At the end of the day Mitch Chamberlin and Howard Anderson were in the final. Howard was a little to quick at the hit and red lit but that did not keep Mitch from backing up a previous record speed with a 6.593 et and 216.81. the record to beat now will be 217.44 MPH.
First round of qualifying on a beautiful Saturday afternoon showed the ups and downs of AA/Supercharged racing. First up was Troy Owen and Joel Matton. Troy broke the long time existing records with a 6.765 et at 209.69 mph and that was at a corrected altitude of more than 4000 feet. He would come back to lower the record to a 6.763! Next was Mitch Chamberlin and Scott Wyke, while Mitch was completing his burn out Scott was on the ride of his life. The Willy-B-Gone car decided to make a hard right into the wall then launched into the air once again landing on all fours with the throttle hung open by a broken injector hat. Scott got out of the car on his own and was OK.
In the final it was Mitch and Troy with a very close side by side race with Mitch coming out on top. Congrats to the Rod Father Team on their first win of the season.
