From the Pits in Woodburn
Oldies But Goodies Race
Scott White up against Chad Walberg, Scott takes it with a 6.70 @ 209 mph. Next Mitch Chamberlin has a single when Howard Anderson can't make the call due to parts breakage. Mad Mike and Gary Fauble battle with Molea coming out on top.The most exciting run was when Monte Grubb in his '33 Willys P/U took out #1 qualifier with his first 200mph run, sure to be more. Congratulations to Monte and crew!
Second round Monte and Mike both leave early but Mike left first and gives Monte the win. Scott gets out on Mitch but problems with the transmission when it wouldn't shift into high gear, Mitch takes it to the final.
In the final Mitch gets another win!
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.
