Maple Grove Raceway, Reading, Pa – Ash Senft knew he had a tough task ahead of him going into the season finale for the Mid Atlantic .90 Association at Maple Grove Raceway. Facing almost a 5 round deficit over first place Kevin Scholl, Senft would have to hope for all the cards to fall into place by day’s end on Sunday to be standing in the #1 spot. As the day progressed things started to align themselves on Saturday and Race #9 of season when Senft & Scholl lined up for 1st round. The winner of that round would have control over their own destiny going into the rest of the weekend. Senft took a close 8.922 to 8.925 victory over Scholl and would ride that momentum all the way to the winner circle with a victory over Kevin Robb’s A-1 Mulch Dragster. With the victory five points is all that separated Senft & Scholl going into Sunday. With the first points change all year long after Saturday’s event Scholl, now knew he needed to go rounds on Sunday and have Senft lose early to have any shot at a championship. Unfortunately, another top five player stood in Scholl’s way of going rounds as third place Bill Hardifer was able to sneak around Scholl on the top-end and end any hopes of a championship for the Hookdaddy Motorsports team. Other Champions that were crowned over the weekend were Keith Mayers in MASSA & Earl Nichols Jr. in MASGA. Mayers, had a stellar year with a series high 4 victories and a runner-up over ten races. Mayers capped off his season with a victory on Saturday Night at Maple Grove and claim the championship over Jimmy Stack. Nichols also was on a tear this season in MASGA with his “Cremator” Corvette after he was able to claim 2 victories and 2 runner-ups over the season. This is Nichols 3rd MASGA Championship for the business owner out of Wilmington, De. Continue reading “Senft, Nichols & Mayers claim Mid Atlantic .90 Championships” »

The Mid Atlantic .90 Series fires back up and heads south to Cecil County Dragway on August 29th & 30th for the 2nd Annual Northeast Showdown at the County. Once again the series will pack a weekend full of .90 Racing. This event will feature Super Comp, Super Gas & Super Street on both days along with the Cecil County Bracket program on Sunday. Everyone is welcomed to come play with us and we welcome members and non-members.
Since 1993 Cecil County has played host to the series but, it was only in 2014 that the track re-joined the series for an added second weekend. With only 4 events left in the 2015 season the Championship Battles are heating up. In Super Comp, Kevin Scholl has pretty much dominated this season but, an early exit at Race # 6 at Atco opened the door for #2 in points Ash Senft and Rookie of the year candidate Nick Pierson who both claimed victory at the Atco events and find themselves nipping away at Scholls lead. In Super Gas, it’s been a heated battle between Earl Nichols Jr. & Iggie Boicesco. Nichols & Boicesco have both claimed victories this season but, it’s Nichols two runner-up’s that have propelled him into the points lead by 35 points over Boicesco. George Stack & MASGA Rookie Sean Lang are closely behind and can strike at any moment. Rounding out the three series is Super Street. So far Division 1 points leader Keith Mayers has played havoc on the rest of the field with 2 victories and a runner-up but, Marty Ganjoin is right on his heels and is not going to make it easy for Mayers to win his second straight championship. Bernie Staub & Jay Neville are in 3rd & 4th and could play a big roll into the final outcome.
For those wishing to get in and set-up early gates will be open beginning at 5pm on Friday the 28th (weather permitting). There will be a test & tune starting at 6pm till 10:30pm. Gates will then re-open at 8am on both Saturday and Sunday with racing beginning at 9am with an open T&T till 10am on Saturday and around 11am on Sunday following Junior Dragsters & Super Pro. A new procedure has been put into place for the remainder of the season and a “Run Card” is required to be purchased from Rob Keister to make any qualifying runs. If you do not have a “Run Card” you will NOT make any passes down the track with the Mid Atlantic .90 Series. If you chooses to run the tracks T&T please refer to the tracks designated lanes.

Atco Dragway – Atco, NJ – The Mid Atlantic .90 Association concluded Race # 5 & 6 of its 2015 season at Atco Dragway over the weekend. On Saturday, Nick Pierson (Super Comp), Jerry Pierce (Super Gas) and Bernie Staub (Super Street) claimed victory and on Sunday Ash Senft (Super Comp), Walter Olt (Super Gas) and Keith Mayers (Super Street) were victorious at day’s end.
On Saturday Super Street veteran Bernie Staub and Rookie of the Year candidate 17 year old Nick Pierson added their names to the long list of first-time winners in the series. Staub, out of Dover, Pa drove his 1978 Arrow to victory over another first time finalist Dom Burgese and his 1968 Camaro. In the final, Staub nailed the tree with a .007 reaction time to Burgese’s .018 and parlayed that into a hole-shot victory as Burgese was quicker on the other end but, couldn’t make up the starting line difference (10.930 to 10.922). Pierson, who had already claimed victory at the LODRS event at Maple Grove earlier in the season added a MASCA trophy to his collection with a victory over Frank Genovesi. Genovesi pushed the tree just a little too far which resulted in a -.001 red-light and an automatic victory for the runner out of Denville, NJ. Rounding out the winners on Saturday was Albany, NY runner Jerry Pierce and his 97 Cutlass in Super Gas. Pierce, took down a red-lighting John Martin in the finals for the automatic victory.
Sunday produced another hot and sticky day for the .90 runners for Race # 6 of the series. Local runner and Atco Regular Walter Olt took his “Team Advantage” Corvette to victory over points leader Earl Nichols Jr. after a lengthy staging duel. Olt, used a lengthy starting line advantage (.018 to .087) and wheeled his way to his first win of the season over Nichols with a 9.968 to 9.950 hole-shot victory. In Super Comp, an early exit by points leader Kevin Scholl opened the door for Ash Senft to gain some ground. Senft, out of Codorus, Pa took his American dragster to victory of Danny “Mr. Happy” Bisbano. Bisbano actually held the lead at the starting line (.010 to .028) but, took too much stripe at the end and handed back the win to Senft with a double-breakout 8.899 to 8.886 victory. With the win it moves Senft, to second in points behind Scholl. Rounding out the weekend and the Mid Atlantic Super Street group saw a familiar face in victory lane as 2014 Champion Keith Mayers took his Porsche to victory over Marty Ganjoin. In a battle of the best of the best in Division 1 Super Street Mayers, took a slight advantage at the tree (.019 to .022) and the hard-charging driver out of Delaware was able to push Ganjoin out at the stripe with a 10.919 to 10.885 victory. Mayers and Ganjoin will be locked neck and neck for the championship battle going into the final two weekends of the season.
The Mid Atlantic .90 Series will take a much needed break off and return August 29th & 30th to Cecil County Dragway in Rising Sun, Md.
