ROCKINGHAM, N.C. – Veteran Randy Weatherford of Danville, Va., overcame weather, the apparent sabotage of the track’s timing system and Carmel, N.Y., rival Chris Rini Sunday to win the Extreme Outlaw Pro Modified title at the annual Super Chevy Show Presented by Chevrolet Performance at Steve Earwood’s Rockingham Dragway.
Weatherford, second in EOPM points entering the event, left as the leader after reigning series champ and No. 4 qualifier Danny “the Sheriff” Perry of Sims, N.C., was upset in the second round by Ed Burnley.
With Perry’s late model Chevy on the sidelines, Weatherford won a final round duel between the No. 1 and No. 2 qualifiers, getting past Rini in 3.825 seconds. Weatherford qualified No. 1 at 3.829 seconds and was quickest in every round at 3.826, 3.835, a best-of-the-event 3.819 to turn back Burnely and, finally, 3.825.
Rain that began early Saturday morning, coupled with the aforementioned timing system issues, forced Earwood to condense the two-day program that also included bracket racing, vendor displays, swap meet and car-and-truck show.
“Very disappointing,” said the track owner. “This is always one of our most popular events but the rain started at 5 a.m. Saturday and that pretty much killed the crowd. Then, when we got to the track, it was apparent that on Friday night some disturbed individual had made a mess of the timing equipment.
“Thank heaven for Van Billingsley (owner of Electronic Services Company) who was able to patch together something that would get us through the weekend. I have no idea as to the ‘who’ or the ‘why,’” Earwood said, “but I’m posting a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and successful prosecution of whomever was responsible.
Other race winners were Derik Sholar of Holly Ridge, N.C., in Top Eliminator, Daniel Leggett of Lumberton, N.C., in Footbrake, Logan Brown of Bishopville, S.C., in Pro Junior Dragster, Jeff Brady of Hayes, Va., in the CamaroGuys.com Gen 5 Shootout and Jerry Cline of Mooresville, N.C., in DOT Tire.
Off the track, the 1962 Chevy Bel Air of Troutman’s Billy Moose was named “Best of Show” in judging by the members of the Southeastern GM Toyz Club.
