Troy Owen wins his Third Consecutive AA/ S Championship
For the 3rd year in a row Troy Owen powered his way to yet another Championship. In round 2 with Mitch going out early, Troy celebrated and saluted the crowd with a ½ track smokey burnout.
This was a bitter sweet victory as the Legends team had worked hard all season to accomplish this goal but in one more round it was to be the last time the Legends car with Troy driving would go down the track.
This was the end of the AA/S career for Troy, something he and the whole team had treasured and dreamed of accomplishing. It was a fitting end and tribute to our friend and driving force, Dana Wilt. We know he is proud of our accomplishments and is looking down with pride and joy for us.
Thanks for all of the Memories.
Howard Anderson sets the performance bar and wins the Hot Rod Nations
Woodburn Hot Rod Nationals would end up being our last race of the season as we had just been notified that the race at Champion Raceway was canceled due to the upgrade of their track racing surface. This was a disappointment as we always love to race at Champion but are very excited to hear they were finally able to put a deal together to upgrade their facility. We look forward to racing there next year.
Qualilifying was nothing short of spectacular as the Anderson tem set personal best times on the way to the #1 spot.
- Howard Anderson 6.507
- Troy Owen 6.550
- Mitch Chamberlin 6.654
- Gary Reinero 6.72
- Mike Molea 6.87
- Joel Matton 6.95
- Garry Fauble 7.85
- Chad Walberg no time
We had a full 8 car field again and the racing was going to be exciting as this race would determine the 2014 AA/S Champion. The top 2 points cars were Troy Owen in the #1 spot and Mitch Chamberlin in the #2 spot. Mitch would have to go 1 more round than Troy in order to win.
First round was Howard Anderson over Mike Molea, Troy Owen over Joel Matton, Mitch Chamberlin over Garry Fauble and Gary Reinero over Chad Walberg.
Round 2 was Howard Anderson over Mitch Chamberlin and Troy Owen over Gary Reinero. With Mitch losing in round 2 this earned Troy the Championship.
There was more racing to do and once again it was the #1 and #2 qualifiers paired up for the final. Troy was out first but his 6.550 was no match for Howards awesome 6.500.
Congratulations to the Anderson team.

The race came down to Troy Owen and Mike Molea in the final. It was a very exciting race with Troy leaving first and having to lift which caused a horrendous wheel stand. Troy was not going to lift as he got around Mike with a 7.073 to Mike’s 7.555
Troy had an awesome weekend with a 31 qualifier, new track ET record 6.587, new track MPH record 211.61, the win and the points lead heading into Woodburn.

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.
