New Winners secure Race Wins at Atco!!
The Mid Atlantic .90 Association kicked off its 2018 season at Atco Dragway. On Saturday April 28th an action pack day of racing and blue skies greeted racers for Race # 1 of the 10 race series. The Super Comp final featured Maryland’s Randy Winfelder Jr & Pennsylvania’s Kevin Scholl. At the flash of the tree Winfelder took a .006 to .014 advantage and parlayed that into a 8.93 to 8.94 victory over Scholl. In Super Gas, 1986 NHRA Super Gas World Champion Ron Orbin made his return to Super Gas with a victory when New York runner Frank Volpe went .004 red in the final. In what might be the most interesting final of the weekend in Super Street when Dave Harvey Jr. took the win over Jimmy Young in a all footbrake final. Harvey took the win after an almost even start with Young but, Young went under the 10.90 index with a 10.892 to Harvey’s winning 10.905.
A drastic change in weather hit over-night and threw drivers for a loop with setting up their throttle-stops. In the Super Gas final local runner Nick Olt took his Team Advantage Corvette to the win over Sean Lang after Lang went -.002 red in his Caviler. In Super Street 3x Mid Atlantic Super Street Champion Keith Mayers took the win over Kelli Barbato and her 68 Camaro. Barbato took the advantage at the tree (.010 to .019) but, just took a little too much stripe and ran under with a 10.896 to Mayers winning 10.910. Due to the cold temps the Super Comp final was pushed to the June event and will be contested between Kyle Koretsky and Steve Everett Sr.
