ADRL Dragstock & Ohio Drags Results

September 27th, 2010 Comments off

This past weekend was the 4th annual ADRL Summit Racing Equipment Ohio Drags, which also held host to the canceled ADRL Simpson Dragstock VII, in Norwalk Ohio. After rain had delayed the Simpson Dragstock, the race was continued in Ohio. We pick up the action in Ohio.

Coming off of a #3 qualifier (3.92 @ 185.69mph) at the Dragstock VII, The Titan Scion was finally ready for Friday’s elimination runs. The first round drew L.J. Wood Jr. Wood had a great light and led until about the 330 foot mark, where Gary proceeded to run him down to win by over a car length. In the second round Team Titan was set to run against long time rival Billy Glidden. Gary and Billy have been battling back and forth for the better part of 2 years now and it is always “anyone’s race” when these two line up. White had a great light, but Glidden was on a role, and posted his second 3 second pass in a row to take the win against Gary’s 4.098.

After Friday’s make up race, Saturday began the Ohio Drags eliminations. The competition has really been stepping up this weekend and even qualifying was the quickest in XTF history. The Titan Scion was able to qualify #5 with a 4.098 @ 184.67mph. In the first rounds of eliminations Titan was up against sandy Wilkins. Wilkins left the line first, but Gary quickly made the ground up to grab the win. Between rounds, Titan opted for a quick motor change to try and swing the tide. In round 2 Gary and Team Titan would once again be up against Billy Glidden. Glidden, riding the “3-second train” blasted out another 3.99 to edge out Gary’s 4.09. Chuck Ulsch would later win the event.

Next on the ADRL race schedule will be the LenMar Motorsports ADRL World Finals, at Texas Motorplex, in Ennis texas. We’ll see you at the races!

Rain In Rockingham

In an unfortunate turn of events, steady rain moved in on Saturday afternoon and forced the postponement of ADRL Simpson Dragstock VII at Rockingham Dragway.

Team Titan had made some good passes in qualifying, as did many of the other XTF cars. Currently, the Titan Scion sits in 3rd place, after a 3.972 @ 185.69mph pass.

The ADRL’s biggest and most prestigious race will have to be completed in two weeks at Summit Motorsports Park in Norwalk, OH, which is also the site of the Summit Racing Equipment Ohio Drags IV on Sept. 24-25. For more info, check out ADRL’s website. We’ll see you at the races!
