CAYUGA, ONTARIO -- For the second time this season DSE SportsmanRacing Series Competitors were racing against the weather as much as themselves at the 2nd Annual Canadian Funny Car Championships. Saturday Racing went smooth with all classes being able to crown champions, however Sunday turned into a race against an incoming weather system, unfortunately for DSE Sportsman Racing Series Competitors the storm won and Sundays Racing action was cancelled just prior to Round 1.
In Renegade Race Fuels Super Pro, Maduri started his trek to the finals by receiving the first round bye run via the "Round that Counts" where the racer with the best reaction time from the last time trial wins the potential first round bye run. From there Maduri drove around Lui Ramundo in round 2, Dave "Otis" Symon in round 3 and Chris VanBaalen in the Semi Finals to set up a final round match up against Mike Newman. In that, Final Round Maduri took a .012 advantage at the Starting line and that was all he would need for the victory.
The Corriveau Concrete Jr Dragster Category had NHRA hardware on the line Saturday as the earlier July 27th NHRA Jr Drag Racing League Challenge had been rained out and rescheduled to the Saturday of the Labour Day weekend. A Very tough field of 15 competitors duked it out for the NHRA hardware with Matteo Ramundo climbing to the top of the field winning over Cristina Johnston and her ever so close -.001 red-light.
Complete list of Weekend Event winners, Runner-ups, and specialty prizewinners were:
