CHRIS HAND UPSET WINNER IN TOP FUEL MOTORCYCLE
Gladstone, Carlson, Markham Double-Up in Manufacturers Cup Race

ROCKINGHAM, N.C. – Every now and then age and experience still trumps youthful enthusiasm in sports. Such was the case Sunday at Rockingham Dragway where 62-year-old Chris Hand of Nauvoo, Alabama, rode his Redneck Racing Harley to a semifinal upset of reigning series champion Larry “Spiderman” McBride en route to a Top Fuel victory in the D.M.E. Nationals ManCup Motorcycle Series.

Hand, who’s been on Top Fuel bikes for three decades, beat Korry Hogan of Golden, Colorado, in the final round, slowing from the 225 mile per hour speed at which he crossed the finish line during qualifying to only 186. That’s all he needed after his younger rival had problems.

For his part, Hogan took out No. 1 qualifier Dave Vantine of Hamilton, New York, in the other semifinal.

While Hand was taking care of business in the featured category, three riders managed to double-up in the two-day event including former MIRock Series regulars Joey Gladstone of Lewes, Delaware, and Bob Carlson of Torrington, Connecticut . Gladstone won the Saturday Street ET race before scoring Sunday in Real Street. Carlson won in Street Fighter and Crazy 8s.

The third double-up winner was John Markham of Bowling Green, Kentucky, who was the Pro ET winner on Saturday before winning Super Comp on Sunday.

Among the others celebrating in the winners’ circle were Grothus 460 winner Ronald Procopio of Wake Forest, Top Gas champ Boo Brown of Potomac Falls, Virginia., Pro Street titlist Mark Paquette of Howell, Michigan, and Pro Fuel king Johnny Vickers of Millers Creek, North Carolina.

The Pro Open final was especially unique in that it included female Australian racer Nikki Zak who fell to reigning ManCup series champ Mark Rendeluk of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

ROBERTS DOUBLES UP IN SRI SPRING SPORTSMAN WARS
Porter Claims Carolina Gassers Feature; Myers Wins a Dead Heat in 7.0 Index Final

ROCKINGHAM – Kenny Roberts of Gallivants Ferry, S.C., drove his 1978 Chevy Nova to victories in both the Open Comp and Footbrake classes Saturday and Danny Porter of Anderson, S.C., directed his 1939 Dodge into the winners’ circle in the Carolina Gassers feature at the 21st annual SRI Spring Sportsman Wars at Rockingham Dragway.

Porter was perfect in three rounds of nostalgia racing among some the sport’s most iconic vehicles. He won a showdown with J.R. Ward of Goode, Va., whose 1934 Willys sedan was the top performer in the field but had to settle for second place with a 2-1 record in head-to-head competition.

Roberts, a Rockingham regular, beat Charlotte’s Frank Estro in a double-breakout final in Open Comp and then stopped Craig Aull of Cayce, S.C., in the Footbrake final.

Making their first appearance in the race formerly known as the Spring Civil Wars, the Carolina Gassers shared top billing with the more familiar Classic Gear Jammers whose membership is restricted to American-built cars with four-or-five speed manual transmissions.

In a throwback to a bygone era, Matthew Wilson of Aberdeen beat David Satterfield of Roxboro in the final. Wilson’s El Camino ran a 6.929 elapsed in the final on a 6.91 dail-in as Satterfield.s 1986 Mustang ran too quick and broke out with a 6.999 time on his 7.02 dial-in.

Other winners included Clay Smith of Wilmington, who beat Rockingham’s Will McKay to win in the PTRA Pro Tree Doorslammer class, Bill Ritts of Danbury who rode to victory in the 6.0 Index class and Kenny Myers of Clemmons who won a virtual dead-heat final round for the 7.0 Index title.

Racing against Charlotte’s Kurt Flanagan, Myers 7.003 against the 7.00 target was just good enough for the win. Flanagan used a starting line advantage to give himself a chance but his 1970 Camaro got to the line second by a margin not discernible without the electronic judge.

Both drivers had .064 “packages,” meaning they were .064 of a second away from perfect against their respective targets.

Rockingham’s Michael Broadway won the trophy class in his 2007 Ford Mustang thanks to a .004 of a second reaction time in his final round race with Ted Frazier. Marty Campbell, Kannapolis, won the 5.30 Index class and Hayden Lambert of Albermarle won Pro Jr. Dragster over Kristen Brady of Carthage.
