NSDN Daily Race Coverage - Soboba Apr '17
Final eliminations were full of epic battles at the Soboba Casino in San Jacinto, CA during the SCSDA 2017 April Fuels Day event. Case in point was the Top Fuel final round between Dennis Rieck and Marcus Norris. Rieck turned on the win light in an incredible 2.32 to 2.33 side-by-side battle by just .025 at the stripe. Jim Hammond put the April’s Dream Dragster in the Top Alcohol Winner’s Circle defeating a red lighting Jake Morton in the final round. Kris Lauffer was the Fast Fours winner in a bizarre final round where Robert Skidmore had an uncharacteristic stage foul eliminate him. Derek Balcunas got the job done in the Pro Mod class defeating Dave Huffman with a 3.13ET. The Top Eliminator Finalists, Marc Whitmore & Ron D’Artenay elected to Split the final round after a Timing System glitch took place during their final round battle. In the Pro Bracket classes, Mark Ratliff was the biggest story as he doubled up taking both the Motorcycle Pro 1 and 2 class victories. Jim Larry nearly doubled up himself as he took the Pro 3 class win over Chris Adamson, but came up on the short end of the Pro 2 final round against George Amos. Craig Durning piloted “Eugene the Jeep” to the Pro 1 victory over Kenny Hayes. The Junior class competitors did great battle on track with the winners ending up being: Sunny Graham (Junior Dragster 9+), Delaney Browning (Juniors 9+), Nixon Acevedo (Mini Junior Dragster) & Madysen Holden (Peewees). We hope everyone enjoyed our coverage this weekend. Run Sheets & Recap Videos are now posted.
