09 Oct 2016 Yakima, WA – Drag racing at its core is every bit a family affair. Toss in Halloween and it shows even more. The gathering of families for the Trick or Treat Shootout combined with the Super Quick and Jr. Championship Series had them at Renegade Raceway in Yakima, WA for a weekend of racing and champions crowned. Racers from all over the northwest and Canada were running for the trophies and better yet the coveted “Wally”.
Dylanie Petersohn just nine years old came in a borrowed car after hers expired at her last race in her first season of racing captured that gold hardware. A feat as most all would say is not easy to do and shows the talent and composure the drivers have at her age while competing in Jr. Thunder.
In the Jr. Lightning class Nathan Watts threw down reaction times that all started with a zero and put a .001 on the board on a single in round two on his way to the “Wally”.
Picking up the “Wally” in the Malarkey Roofing Products sponsored Superquick Series Andy Schlenker outlasted the field in his Mullis dragster.
On to Sunday and the quest begins again for the hardware though unlike yesterday today the weather became a major player. After two rounds in the books the powers that be had to pull the plug as “Mother Nature” became the winner this day. This forced Division Director Matt to go to his laptop and put a “championship” stamp to the series.
In the end Don Sefton in “Super Quick”, Tiffany Howe in Jr. Lightning and Cooper Chun in Jr. Thunder were crowned “Champions” for the season series. To all that came for the weekend look forward to next season and this event at Renegade Raceway.
