For Immediate Release

CLOSE STILL COUNTS AS YOUKER WINS SUPER CHEVY TITLE

Rain Compacts Action into a Single Day at Rockingham Dragway

 

ROCKINGHAM – Whether the margin is as little as a front bumper or as much as 10 car lengths, Salisbury’s Jeremy Youker knows that a win is a win is a win.

 

Driving a modified 2010 Chevy Cobalt, Youker inched his way to the 4.70 Outlaws title Sunday at Rockingham Dragway in a rain-plagued Dieffenbach Superstore Super Chevy Show in which almost all the on-track action was condensed into a single day.

 

The No. 10 starter after missing the 4.70 second target by a healthy margin in qualifying, Youker took out No. 1 qualifier Donnie Gibbs Jr. of Mooresville in the semifinals and then stopped Statesville’s James Bunton in the final.

 

His margin of victory in those two final races was a combined .01 of a second — .004 over Gibbs and .006 over Bunton.

 

In Top Eliminator, which featured a combined two-day purse to compensate for Saturday’s total rainout, Nashville’s Phillip Bullock claimed the $4,200 top prize by pushing final round foe Donald Norris of Conway, S.C., into a breakout foul with a solid .013 package.

 

Doug Cline, of  Stanfield, made exhibition runs in his street driven 1969 Camaro, turning a best time in the eighth mile of 4.57 with a speed of 171.16 mph. Upon arrival on Friday he actually drove the all steel-body car to a local grocery store.

 

Other event winners included Richard Alford of Raleigh, in Footbrake, Chase Wagner of Willow Springs in Jr. Dragster and Bob Perrot of Moseley, Va., in the D.O.T. class.

 

Although he lost the $2,500 top prize to Alford, Hamlet’s Trey Sikes laid down an almost perfect run against Lumberton’s J.D. Lewis in the quarterfinals, combining a .001 reaction time with a track time of 9.630 seconds on a 9.630 target.  It was a rare .001 package against which Lewis had no chance.  Sikes also was one of the last three in the D.O.T. class before losing to Rockingham’s Tim Clark.

 

In the car show competition, Billy Moore of Troutman won the Best of Show in his stunning 1962 Chevrolet Bel Air.

 

 

This week, the Rock goes from four wheels to two with the 24th renewal of the Jim McClure All-Harley Nitro Nationals featuring Saturday qualifying and Sunday eliminations in all the standard Harley categories including Top Fuel, Pro Fuel and Funny Bike.

 

Adult tickets are $20 Saturday and $20 Sunday although a $45 super ticket covers both days and Friday’s test session.  A Saturday-Sunday ticket also is available in advance for $35.

WEATHER CALLS FOR CREATIVITY AT SUPER CHEVY SHOW

Top Eliminator, Footbrake Now a Chevy vs. the World Affair Open to All Makes

            ROCKINGHAM, N.C. – Morning rain and an unfavorable forecast compelled Rockingham Dragway officials to cancel Saturday’s program and condense the annual Dieffenbach Superstore Super Chevy Show into a single, action-packed Sunday punctuated by drag racing, show cars and a swap meet. 

            In addition to the 4.70 Outlaws, Sunday’s full schedule will include the DOT class and bracket racing in the Top Eliminator, Footbrake and Jr. Dragster classes with the event expanded to include all makes and models in a special “Chevy vs. The World” showdown.

            Top Eliminator will pay a $4,200 winner’s purse with $1,400 the runner-up and $500 each to the semifinalists, $250 quarterfinals.  Footbrake payout will be $2,500 to win, $800 runner-up and $275 to the semifinalists, $140 to the quarterfinals. Jr. Dragster purse will include $450 to win and $175 to the runner-up.

            Entry fee for the one-day shootout is $90 in Top Eliminator and Footbrake; $60 in Jr. Dragster.  Each class will pay purse money to the final 16 in competition.

Unfortunately, due to prior commitments, the Jet Dragsters were unable to stay for Sunday’s show.

            The car show will continue as scheduled with car show awards at 3 p.m. Sunday.

Gates open at 8 a.m. with time trials at 9 and eliminations to follow.
