Gary Simpers and his Comet station wagon won the E.T. Shootout at Maple Grove Raceway Sunday during the Auto-Plus NHRA Nationals. A Pro E.T. driver in the Sunoco Race Fuels Money Trail Series, Simpers won the annual “golf cart” race over Jeffrey Burnley from the Top Bike class.

The winning pass was 10.617 seconds at 104.30 mph that was .14 over his dial-in. Burnley was a little slower off the starting line and ran 11.690 at 103.63 on his sled that was .25 over his dial.

As runner-up, Burnley won a 32-inch HD TV courtesy of P.C. Richard & Son.

The yellow golf cart won by Simpers was sponsored by D&G Golf Carts, Awesome Vinyl, Potty Queen and P.C. Richard & Son.
