Thumbs up Midwest Top Sportsman Race #1 Results

Midwest Top Sportsman Race #1
May 2 2010

Route 66 Raceway

Joliet, IL

The day started off with dark clouds and a chance of rain. This may have scared off some racers, but we had a good field of 22 cars. After qualifying Jeff Fleming found himself #1 qualifier with a ET 6.80 @ 203.89 mph down to Joe Cleary Jr at #22 (Joe was having some mechanical gremlins). By 1st round of eliminations the weather had picked up and it was around 70 and partly cloudy, track temp was 90 degrees. Throughout eliminations these cars where sticking and running some personal best. There was some excitement when Jim Tacchia at the 900 ft marker lost traction, put his car sideways but still got control to straighten her out. I guess years of driving pays off, great job to Jim. By the Semi-Finals it was Brian Brown vs Tony Grzelinski (last years champ) and Tom Begler vs bye (because of car breakage). In the Finals was Brian Brown and Tom Begler, both of these racers had been deadly consistent all day. At the end it was Brian Brown winning with a RT=.021 ET=7.15 @ 192mph and Tom Begler as runner-up with a RT=.146 ET=7.87 @ 176 mph. Great job to both drivers and teams!

Brian Brown wanted to dedicate this win to Funny Car Driver, Justin Schriefer and the daughter he lost Ericka Schriefer, He has been a great supporter, racer and sponsor of our Top Sportsman Program.
