Race #3 Maple Grove 7/15

David Bay scores at Maple Grove Raceway SCS

Steve Giordano drives 422 Motorsports Fairlane to runner-up……….

Maple Grove Raceway July 15, 2018 – New for this season was the inclusion of the 422 Allstars at Maple Grove Raceway’s Super Chevy Show. The event usually one of their largest
was hampered by rain on Sunday, but after the morning rain had cleared the staff was able to get the track dry and complete the event. For us, after having to postpone Race #1 (Numidia
Dragway) and now the cancelation of the Race #4 (Beaver Springs Dragway), we would have come up short on points earning events for the season! Incidentally, Race #6, also at Maple
Grove Raceway, has been moved due to other commitments at the track. We are presently awaiting a firm a date and the rescheduling Numidia
Dragway Race #1 as well. Needless to say, we’ll keep you posted!

Qualifying kicked off with good old Cliff Sebring in the “Damn Yankee” 1964 Dodge claim the number one spot with a splendid .001 reaction time! 2017 422 Allstars’ champ, John Warehime
a .012, David Siltman in his W31 a .017, Leo Sekulski placing his Galaxie in at .020 and Curt Rubendall a .040 to finish off the top five qualifying positions.

Eliminations saw David Bay leadoff taking out Cliff Sebring with a .075, 10.613 elapsed time on his 10.55 index, Sebring .169, 11.149, 11.00. Warehime eliminated Thomas Gustafsson .070,
10.283, 10.30 to Gustafsson’s redlight -.013, 10.740, 10.65. Curt Rubendall ran a 10.259 on his 10.25 index eliminating Brant Kelley’s .062 reaction time but ran out with a 10. 618 on a 10.65
dial. Rick Righter, new to the series, driving a 1970 Chevelle SS got the round win over Wayne Shipley when Wayne went red -.016. Righter also went way red -.399, but it didn't matter as
Shipley had the slower index 10.35 leaving first to Righter’s 9.75. David Siltman singled into round number two, with Steve Giordano taking out Leo Sekulski .080, 10.175, 10.15., Leo .231,
 way too quick 9.526 breakout on his 9.70 index. Closing out the round was Ron Ladley in the 422 Motorsports’ 1962 Mercury running a .200, 10.589, 10.60 on a bye.

Second round had Rubendall with the win over Warehime as Warehime went too quick by .007 with a 10.293 on a 10.30 index, Rubendall recorded a, .015, 10.278, 10.25. Righter moved his
bright red Chevelle into the semifinals via a red lighting Siltman, who pushed the tree hard -.008 running a 12.250 on a 12-flat index. Righter laid down a .137, 9.845, 9.75. The two 422 Motorsports’
cars met up with Steve Giordano grabbing the round over Ron Ladley in a double red-light for the two drivers, -.002 Giordano and a -.193 Ladley. David Bay got the bye moving into the semifinals.

Bay advanced to the final over Righter who fouled with a -.008-reaction time. and Giordano over Rubendall again Rubendall went .-011 red to set-up the finals Bay in a Mopar and Giordano Ford.

Now with the final set, David Bay shoeing his black 1970 Dodge Super Bee claimed the event title .088, 10.564 on a 10.55 index over Steve Giordano running a to Steve’s .081, 10.208, 10.15.

Noticeable during the event was the amount of red light starts? Also there were many breakouts, which is understandable due to rain and atomospheric changes in the weather.  ** George Case **

Race #2 Capitol 6/16

Not my “Father’s” Oldsmobile……….

Son, Aaron, defeats Dad, Wayne Shipley on Father’s Day……….

Capitol Raceway June 16, 2018 – Our season started out with us scheduled to return up to Numidia Raceway (race# 1), but unfortunately the weather didn’t cooperate forcing a
cancellation of the day’s event and for the 422 Allstars to get going later in the season than usual.

Great weather greeted us at race #2, Capitol Raceway in Maryland. Despite several race cars being broken, we still had eighteen teams show up. Craig Balmer drove his “Thanks Mom”
1963 Plymouth Savoy to the number one qualifying position with a splendid .001 reaction time followed by 2017 champ, John Warehime (.015), Kevin Grasson (.020), Dave Siltman
(.033) and John Reed rounding out the top five with a .038.

Eliminations got underway Balmer taking out Tom Sneden, Dave Siltman in his “father’s Oldsmobile, yes, really to Henry George, Jr. in a sleek blue 1965 Dodge Coronet, Warehime over
Cliff Sebring driving the “Damn Yankee” Dodge, Ron Ladley overcoming Leo Sekulski in his refreshed 1963 Galaxie. Leo had broken the motor mid-2017 and had Jay Zolko bring it back
to life, multi-time champ, Kevin Grasson eradicated Curt Rubendall of a chance to move into round number two, Steve Shipley over Bob Stren Sr., John Reed finished the day for Tony Silipena
and Aaron Shipley closing out round number on removing Frank Pellegrini, who was driving the 422 Motorsports 1967 Fairlane house car.

Round two saw Balmer lead off with a bye run clicking off a 10.932 second elapsed time on his 10.90 index, Wayne Shipley moved into the quarter finals in a close race against Henry George, Jr.
via a .146, 10.236, 10.15 to George’s .176, 9.543, 9.45 (.033 mov), Warehime eradicated Ladley .131, 10.209, 10.15 to Ladley’s .144, 10.588, 10.50, Grasson posting a .085, 10.291, 10.15 to
Steve Shipley .101, 11.725, 11.60. M.O.V., less than .001 of a second and the closes race of the day! To end the round, Aaron Shipley nailed a .055, 11.060 on a 11.05 dial to John Reed’s
10.432 elapsed time on a 10.40 and a .113 reaction time.

Quarter-finals; Wayne Shipley .065, 10.197, 10.15 got around Craig Balmer .103, 10.913, 10.90, Warehime with the bye Aaron Shipley conquering Kevin Grasson. The two drivers were separated
by only .001 at the start, but Shipley ran closer to his index .088, 11.068, 11.05 to Grasson .087, 10.183, 10.15 standard, .014 mov.

Next up were the semifinals with Aaron Shipley earning the berth into the finals by means of bye and match up between the number one and two top finishers of 2017, John Warehime and Wayne
Shipley.  The coolest part was this was a heads-up run with both drivers in with a 10.15 dial/index. Wayne took the win as Warehime ran out with a .114, -10.142 breakout to Shipley’s .044, 10.210 pass.

So here we go, Father’s Day with son versus dad, the battle of the two maroon Oldsmobile Cutlass’.  Aaron with a 11.05 dial/index left first with a .064 reaction time running a
11.03 elapsed time to take the win over da, Wayne .093, 10.236 seconds. Another great clean race.

A couple of words about the other Oldsmobile of Dave Siltman; the car was originally purchased and raced back in 1969/70 by his father running out of the Anderson Oldsmobile stable.
The car is a W31 powered post Cutlass running in NHRA F/Stock, which at the time was deemed the better combination for the class.

So, we now have a month to get reading for Race #3, to be held at Maple Grove Raceway on July 15th, where will be competing as part of the Menard’s Super Chevy Show.

Oaks, PA.  Wanna relive the factory Super Stock wars of the 60’s. The 422 All Star Nostalgia Super Stock Series
will allow fans to do just that. All 60’s big blocks, all lettered, dual quads, all motor, all cool,  no slicks on the wrong
end of the car, no cars that came to America on a boat. Just plain old classic Detroit Iron
with open exhausts and not a prayer of ever being driven on the street.

The show consists of 427 Fords and Chevy’s in addition to Chrysler Hemi and wedge big blocks with a dose of
AMC  and Pontiac big block power. Many original factory drivers and true legends of the sport who are willing to
talk with fans and relive the “Golden Age of Drag Racing”. A one day show that will move quickly on the track
schedule with minimal breakdowns and a .400 Sportsman tree that can reduce or eliminate red lights.
