Throughout the day Saturday and well into the evening, it seemed nothing could stop Fredy Scriba’s well-tuned Pro Mod Corvette.
Taking part in the Northeast Outlaw Pro Mod race in the Rumble at The Grove presented by Penske Truck Leasing, Scriba kept getting faster and faster every time he made a run during qualifying and eliminations.
However, Gary Courtier and his ’68 Camaro had other plans. In a final that took the breath away from everyone in attendance, the Manorville, N.Y.-based racer put a roadblock in Scriba’s path to PPC Lubricants Victory Lane. He won with a blazing pass of 6.101 seconds at 232.75 mph.
That final capped a long day as fans were treated a wide variety of racing classes, a feature of the Rumble. There were Pro E.T. cars racing for a $1,200 first prize, the Boninfante B1 Index Series, NHRA Top Sportsman, and an Import race serving as a preview for the popular Latin American Sports Compacts II event on Sept. 7-8.
