NORWALK, Ohio --
One is U.S. 131 Motorsports Park located in the cool hills of southern Michigan, while the other is Caprock Motorplex sitting in the arid deserts of west Texas. But despite those differences, those tracks had two things very much in common over the weekend - very happy drivers. That is because both tracks were the location of two of the International Hot Rod Association's most exciting events as U.S. 131 Motorsports Park hosted the Division 5 Thunder Summit Team Finals and Caprock Motorplex hosted the inaugural Division 7 Gunslingers Summit Team Finals both this past weekend.
>From those two events six drivers emerged as representatives of their respective division at the upcoming Summit SuperSeries presented by AMSOIL and Moser Engineering World Championship to be held at Memphis International Raceway in October and two tracks took home team honors from the events. At the inaugural Division 7 Summit Team Finals host track Caprock Motorplex won the team event with 46 points, finishing 20 points ahead of runner-ups Desert Thunder Raceway and Amarillo Dragway. In Division 5 U.S. 131 Motorsports Park led the way on its home turf with 73 points, followed by Grand Bend Motorplex with 38 points and Marion County International Raceway with 29 points.
In the Gunslingers Division Tammy Chamberlain took the Top ET victory over Kevin Bracey from Amarillo Dragway with a solid 6.413, 112.78 on a 6.40 dial while Bracey broke-out. In Mod Tim O'Moore held the advantage on the tree with a .033 reaction time and ran a dead-on 7.079 on a 7.07 dial at 89.46 mph to get around Gary Bartholma of Amarillo Dragway who took too much at the stripe. Junior Dragster representative Lindsey Low also won a close race in a double-breakout victory over Rowdy Huff of Desert Thunder Raceway.
Those six drivers will join many more at the IHRA Summit Racing Equipment World Finals in Memphis to compete for over $200,000 in cash and prizes as part of the Summit SuperSeries World Championship program for the Top, Mod and Junior Dragster classes.
