Saturday’s Money Trail stopped by rain; season champions crowned

Despite three hours of hard work on the track that lasted into Saturday evening, the season finale of the Sunoco Race Fuels Money Trails E.T. Series was stopped in the middle of the first round of eliminations.

Because one round wasn’t completed for all classes (with the exception of Jr. Dragsters), the points coming into the day turned out to be the final standings.

The following racers have clinched points championships and will be recognized at the Money Trail Banquet scheduled for February 2014:

  • Goldrush Trailers Super: Lanny Werley
  • Ciccarone Racing Products Pro: Brock Moshier
  • P.C. Richard & Son Street: Paul Werner
  • Ray’s Yamaha Top Bike: Cory Stuebner
  • Jr. Dragsters: Vincent Branca.

Dissinger gets late night victory

Dave Dissinger wins Pro.

Everyone at Maple Grove Raceway on Saturday worked the late shift. Racing wasn’t completed until curfew was looming, but Sunoco Race Fuels Money Trail 15 was finished with a few minutes to spare.

For the most part.

Winners were crowned in six of seven eliminators. The only one that didn’t send a victor to PPC Lubricants Victory Lane was Goldrush Trailers Super, which was stopped after three rounds due to track conditions after the air temperature dropped. More >
