Thank you to all who nominated drivers and riders for the 2013 Maple Grove All-Star Team. The finalists in each category have been chosen based on those nominations and now it’s time to choose the All-Star Team.
Every Sunoco Race Fuels Money Trail points member from the last two years received an invitation to vote yesterday. It came directly from the survey site, and may have been moved to junk mail, so check there if you don’t see it.
Each person gets one vote and as the numbers start to build, there are going to be many close races. Please take a minute and be a part of the fun. If you are a points member and didn’t receive an email, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to be sent an invitation.
Once again it’s time to think of the best of the best from the 2013 Sunoco Race Fuels Money Trail.

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.
