BATTLE FOR THE BELT RACE #1
Mother Nature threw us a curve for our 1st race with temperatures in the 80's and lots of humidity. The Warriors Outlaw Race Team had 18 cars for our first race of the season with several other Warriors in "Engine Prison".
We welcomed 2 new Warriors: James N Crystal Smith's wicked N/A Mustang and Fred House's 4 cylinder turbo Thunderbird. Two great additions to our team!
The curfew got us so there wasn't a winner in the 2 classes. Bobby DeMilt and his Chevy Powered Nitrous BBC Mustang and Dan Whetstine's Pro Charged SBF Mustang would have met for the final. They both ran 4.61's in the semi's and it would have been a great race. We will have Bobby and Dan run for the belt and trophy at our next race in the 2nd Qualifying run to determine the points leader.
In the 2nd field, James N Crystal Smith's N/A Chevy powered Mustang will run Butch Merson and his turbo BBC Camaro for the hardware and points. Both ran low 5's and it will also be a great battle.
Dan Whetstine took home the $200 bonus for being the #1 Qualifier with a 4.68 et, courtesy of Bill Cole and BTM Racing.
The Warriors Outlaw Drag Race Team would like to thank the Bradshaw family and crew for their commitment at Official Capitol Raceway and providing their racers with a great facility. Even with temperatures hitting almost 90 degrees, the track was awesome!! Dedication does pay off!! I have said this before: if you have not been to Official Capitol Raceway, put it on your bucket list.
We hope to see you May 27th for our Battle #2 at Capitol and to determine our first Last Warrior Standing.
