Junior Dragster racers from California, Arizona and Nevada converged on Irwindale Drag Strip on
Saturday July 26 to conclude a short, but successful 2014 season. With two races on the day, boys
and girls alike were furiously chasing points to earn the coveted track championships.
In Group One (8-9 year old), Doniphan Schmidt defeated Ryan Mason to take race one. Doniphan's
shot at a double came up a little short as Gavin Pine outran him in the race two final. In Group
Two (10-12 year old), Michael Gidcumb took the race one honors over Matthew Shelden while Cade Poe
won a double breakout final over Braiden Chesleigh in race two.
In Group Three (13-14 year old), Josh Gagnon utilized a great .009 light in the final of race one
to put away Dylan Horridge. The final in race two saw Dylan Oliveira eliminate Chris Schweers.
Group Four (15-17 year old) saw Gabrielle Schmidt earn the hardware in race one over RJ Karls and
Brandon Savolt over Kevin Motter in race two.
At the end of the day track champions crowned were Ryan Mason in Group One, Maverick Molloy in
Group Two, Dylan Oliveira in Group Three and Brandon Savolt in Group Four.
