The SCSDA Racin’ For A Cure event concluded on Sunday under Sunny Skies in Southern California. Robert Skidmore continued to set amaze as he lowered his Fast Fours World Record with a 2.747 in Eliminations, the Quickest Ever pass by a Turbo 4-cylinder Dragster. Another record was set as Geoff Gill piloted the Larry Minor Motorsports Hemi-powered Jeep to a 2.86 backed up by a 2.87 for the A/Pro Jeep World Record. Gill also emerged victorious in Pro Mod Unlimited action. Garrett Ratliff celebrated his 21st Birthday with the win in the Motorcycle Pro 1 category. Other winners on the day included Randy Mings (Motorcycle Pro 2), Tara DeNunzio (Powderpuff Cars), Nikki Bailey (Powderpuff ATV), Christian Myers (Junior Dragster), Breanna Canfield (Juniors), Dylan Hegwood (Mini Jr Dragster), and Deegan Gutierrez (Peewees). The event was cut short due to electrical gremlins in the Timing System, so several classes split the money and points while others will finish at the November SCSDA race. Read on for the full breakdown on those categories. **Run Sheets are now posted**

The second day of racing action at the 2013 SCSDA Racin’ For a Cure event is complete. A great crowd at the Soboba Casino in San Jacinto, CA saw some incredible racing action, including a new World Record as Robert Skidmore set a new Fast Fours World Record with a 2.763, eclipsing DL King’s nearly 10 year old record of 2.768. Skidmore leads the way in a tough Fast Fours class this weekend. Hammer Down Racing’s Dennis Rieck has a Top Fuel bracket car as he led Qualifying with a 2.31 best so far. The Top Alcohol class has a real competitive field this weekend, but it’s the same ole Gary Mink at the top of the list running a 2.50 best. TE points leader and newly licensed Top Fuel driver Billy Morris took the #1 spot running a 2.969 on the 2.95 TE Index. Geoff Gill in the new Larry Minor Hemi-powered Jeep topped the Pro Mod Unlimited order with a solid 2.91/115 MPH blast. In the bracket classes, Wes Gilmore was the big story as he won both the Pro Gambler & Sport 1 categories with the Rattitude Jeep. First time winner Kevin Cambridge took home the hardware in Sport 2. Other big winners on the day included Austin Thomas (Motorcycle Gambler), Heather Taylor (Motorcycle Sportsman 1), and Pedro Villa Jr. (Motorcycle Sportsman 2). Eliminations conclude on Sunday.
