Mid Atlantic .90 Association
Well, the 2017 season is upon us and that only means that the Mid Atlantic .90 Series will be firing up their engines for its 5th full season of .90 Racing, featuring the classes of Super Comp, Gas & Street. Once again VP Race Fuels (Newark, De) and Roadrunner Race Fuels (Mohnton, Pa) will be the presenting sponsors of this series along with a long list of other supporting sponsors that will be offering up contingency gift certificates such as Comp Cams, Meziere, Auto Meter & JKR / Lucas Oil.
Onto the info for the Northeast Shootout at Atco, Gates will open on Friday evening at 4:30pm till around 10pm for the Street Wars & Test and Tune. Gates will then re-open at 8am on Saturday & Sunday Morning with time runs beginning around 9:30am starting with Super Street then Super Comp & finishing off with Super Gas and back into that rotation again. We have no filler in between Super Comp & Gas this weekend, so if you plan on running both please be in line early for Super Comp. Saturday has an action packed day of racing as of course the .90 series will be in action in the morning and the Atco Bracket series consisting of Street, Pro & Super Pro will hit the track in the afternoon and continue into the night. Any .90 racers are welcomed to jump over into the bracket race if you would like but, will have to pay the additional fee at the gate. On Sunday the .90 Cars return along with the Atco Dragway Motorcycle Points and Test & Tune. Gate fee will be $35.00 per day (Basically Track Rental) & $75.00 paid to the Mid Atlantic .90 Trailer and we start paying back at 3rd round loser. We have a new payout system for this year based off of car counts and at 26 cars it will pay out $1,000 and after 33 cars keep going up.

Cecil County Dragway – Rising Sun, Md. (September 17th & 18th) – The Mid Atlantic .90 Association closed out its 2016 season at Cecil County Dragway by crowning two new champions and another adding his third straight to his long list of accomplishment. At day’s end Chase Fahnestock (Super Comp), Don Knoblick (Super Gas) and Keith Mayers (Super Street) added championships to their resumes.
Going into the weekend, Super Comp points leader Chase Fahnestock controlled his own fate. With two victories and a runner-up in just five races, Fahnestock had almost a five round lead going into Saturday’s action. As racing got underway, recent Atco winner and third in points Tom Slater was going to make things interesting for Fahnestock as he took his Undercover Dragster to the final round victory over Ash Senft on Saturday. Slater cut into Fahnestock’s lead with a 8.906 to 8.912 victory and knew he needed to win on Sunday to claim the 2016 Championship. As the sun rose on Sunday and the action got underway both drivers proceeded to round #2. With Fahnestock looking on, Slater would match up against Danny “Mr. Happy” Bisbano who drove all night from the Carolina Nationals to attend Sunday’s event. As the excitement built, Fahnestock became Bisbano’s biggest fan as he would take down Slater with a 8.882 to 8.873 victory and clinching the Championship for Chase, his first with the series. With the event victory still on the line both Fahnestock and Bisbano would march all the way to the final round and match up against each other. Danny made the all night trip worth his while as he took his second victory of the year with a 8.899 to 8.889 decision over Fahnestock.
