Div 3 Race 1

Randi Lyn Shipp was the only Pontiac racer to survive Stock E-2.

Div 5

Saw some qualifying from Great Bend.

The Pontiac powered Stockers I saw were Norman Warling's '62 Cat & Dwaine Davis' '74 Formy.

The SS cars were Carroll Warling's '74 GTO & Scott Burton's '91 bird.

Appeared that they are having a Stock/SS combo race today. Norman, Dwaine, & Scott survived round 1.

@ the div 1 race, they're finishing the Sports Nats race from Epping.

They just had the quarter-final round of SS, with 6 cars left. Bill Kennedy won his race. So, he's in the semi, with 3 cars left. 3rd place is the worst he can do.

Bill got the bye into the final, but left too soon & had to settle for R/U.

Just noticed that Norman Warling is now running the 421SD engine, in his '62 cat. Running E/SA. Ran 11.75. Guessing that the Warling bros will squeeze quite a bit more out of it, as time goes by.

Wonder when was the last time a 421 Pontiac powered Stocker made a pass, in competition ?

Div 1

They only ran 1 round at Maple Grove, & ran 1/8 mile.

According to this post, they're suppose to try to finish today, weather permitting.

http://classracer.com/classforum/showpo ... stcount=20

All the Pontiacs survived E-1.

There's Billy Nees & Lauren Kanuik, in Stock.

https://www.dragracecentral.com/DRCStor ... 0#indextop

In SS, there's Bill Kennedy & John Agneta.

https://www.dragracecentral.com/DRCStor ... 0#indextop

Bill Kennedy laid down a real good package. He cut a .007 light, then ran 6.610 on a 6.61 dial. That package will win most rounds.

Here's the D1TV link for today.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IFHx6ZDCT_o

Lauren Kanuik & Billy Nees both survived Stock E-2.

Bill Kennedy also won his 2nd round of SS.

Billy Nees got a 3rd round bye, Bill Kennedy survived SS E-3. So, we got 2 Pontiacs still in the race.

Billy Nees lit the red light & Bill Kennedy broke out. No Pontiac winners today. :(

Texas Motorplex

There's a double header there this week. The 1st is a national open, followed by the Fall Nats.

https://www.facebook.com/txmplex/photos ... 663972012/

Should be a few Pontiacs there.

Texas Fall Nats

In Stock Q-1, Chris Stephenson is #3 & Randi Lyn Shipp is #5.

https://www.dragracecentral.com/DRCStor ... T#indextop

In SS, J.B. Clegg is #23.

https://www.dragracecentral.com/DRCStor ... T#indextop

Devon Dioguardi has now joined the Stock party, in John Clegg's Mission Garage '74 T/A. In Q-2, the Pontiacs were at positions 6, 12, & 15.

https://www.dragracecentral.com/DRCStor ... T#indextop

In SS, J.B. Clegg ended up at #27.

Fall Nats

Chris Stephenson had the only Pontiac Stocker to survive E-1. Randi Lyn's opponent cut a .003 light. Hard to beat that.

https://www.dragracecentral.com/DRCStor ... 0#indextop

Chris lost E-2, when his opponent ran a 10.555 on a 10.55 dial. So all the Pontiac Stockers are gone quick. :(

https://www.dragracecentral.com/DRCStor ... T#indextop

J.B. Clegg survived SS E-1, because his opponent didn't show. But that's as far as he got.

Indy Open

No results on DRC.

Live timing sometimes has mistakes. But, from their Stock Q-2 list, Rob Holmes is #7 @ 1.238 under. Bob Michael is #13 @ 1.077 under. Dave Batta is #25 @ .943 under. Assume he is still driving the '77-'78 Formy that Mark Yacavone & his wife raced. Car info is not listed, only driver names & class. Billy Foder is #46. And Don Turk is #56.

https://www.nhra.com/results/2020/lucas ... eliminator

Looks like it may have been what they call "mine shaft" conditions, since the car just below 1/2 way down the list(#36) ran .850 under. Don't know if this applies to this race, since it's a national open race.

A SS sheet was posted on the Class Racer forum. The highest Pontiac qualifier was Mike Morgan's 350 powered '77 Formy. The driver is listed as Travis Morgan, who I assume is kin to Mike. He's #8 @ 1.107 under. Stacy McCarty is #13 @ 1.038 under. Casey McCarty is #22. Monte Howard is #25, in a '78 Bird. I just ASSUME that the car is the same Bird he use to drive, which belonged to Ken Shawver, & more recently to Jack Good. Don't know if this is just a loaner for this race, or what. If anybody knows, please post your info.

You can click on the pic & it gets a little bigger. But I still had to use a magnifying glass to read it.

http://classracer.com/classforum/attach ... 1602983652

Here's the list, from NHRA LIve Timing. It's a little different.
