BATTLE FOR THE BELT   RACE 3 of 6

August 5, 2017 
If you were not at Capitol Raceway Saturday the 5th, you missed one day and night of the most awesome racing you could have imagined
!

24 Warriors were ready to see who was going to get the Last Warrior Standing belt and our neat, handmade trophy plus $$$. 2 new Warriors joined us: Ronnie Diaz and Cary Daniel. We welcome you both.

The qualifying itself was a race to see; and who would pocket the $200 #1 Qualifier bonus courtesy of Bill Cole of BTM Racing.

New Warrior Ronnie Diaz and his Turbo Mod motor Mustang took the bonus with a pass of 4.598 to barely beat out Brian Weddle's beautiful '67 Nitrous BBC Camaro of 4.606.
