Hope to see a bunch of you there. I'll be running the lanes out, the HoosierThompsonYear freckle in the burnout box, or something helping to run the program.

$125 is the reentry, but $425 for the weekend is pretty decent, $142 a day for $15K.

Day 1 of the 660 Top Bulb Nationals presented by Gotus Trucking is in the books! A great day of racing, super tight racing all day. In the dial for dollars, if you weren’t dead on with a zero, you weren’t eligible! Brandon Butler won it, going dead on with two zeroes.

In the $15k, the ladder round contained 4 door cars and 2 dragsters. Kevin Romeo wheeled the Freight Train Vega over Mark Brewer’s ‘78 King Cobra Mustang II, mutli time winner Chris Bear in his dragster took out Brandon Prest in his late second generation Camaro, and Ken Rhine in his 2003 Mustang dropped a .002 on the dragster of Kevin Boring.

In the semis, Kevin had lane choice over Chris, and Ken had the bye to the final. Kevin leaves with a .0070, and Chris is right behind him with a .0084. Kevin takes .0063 at the stripe, but puts in .0014 under, and Chris puts it right on the dial with a 3, meaning Kevin had to take nothing up to .0048, hard to do against the dragster darting by. Ken drove down, broke the beam and backed up, giving up lane choice in the final to Chris.

In the final, Ken stayed on his 5.52 dial in, and was in the right lane for the first time all day. Chris also stayed on his 4.73 dial in. Ken had a little bit of finger stuck to the button-itis, tardy with a .0666, but gets the Happy Gilmore check when Chris goes .0052 red. Salt in the wound for Chris as he goes dead on 1, and Ken runs 5.556. That’s a wrap on day 1, and we go back at it at 9am Saturday!

Day 2 of the 660 Top Bulb Nationals presented by Gotus Trucking LLC was blessed with a Chamber Of Commerce type beauty of a sunny summer day. Ron Boyce kicked the day off with a $500 win in dial for dollars, going lowest of a bunch of racers going dead on zero.

For the $15k to win main event, the ladder round at 8 cars was fully loaded, in every way, with heavyweight battles in all 4 pairs. Multi time winner Pete D’Agnolo in his orange Malibu dialed 5.84 against Mark Brewer’s ‘78 King Cobra Mustang II dialed 6.36. Mark leaves with a .002, Pete chases with a .020 bulb. Both drivers put it dead on, Pete’s dead on zero .009 behind Mark’s dead on 6, .011 package for Mark locking out Pete. Matt Dadas in his super clean Grand Am dialed 6.08, getting chased by Jim Berschneider’s dragster, dialed in with a 4.87. Matt is .006, dead on 6 to be .012 total, making Jim mathematically ineligible when he was .037, lifting to be 4.88, Matt taking the stripe and the win by .034. Third pair was a classic Mustang versus Camaro matchup, with Pete Maduri in his ‘69 Camaro dialed 6.06, with Mike Barber in his Fox body getting a sliver of a head start with a 6.10 dial in. Mike is .008 on the hit, with Pete matching it and more with a .003. Pete puts it right on with an 8, .0120 total, taking the win by .019 when Mike is 6.12, only having .022 to get inside of. Dragsters for JP Schuster, dialed 4.67, and K.C. Kovacs, dialed 4.83, finished the round. JP was .022 on the leave, and done when K.C. goes .005, dead on 2 to be .007 total for the win, JP under .007 trying to hold him off.

In the semi finals, 3 doors and 1 dragster remained. Mark Brewer and Matt Dadas squared off, and was over early when Mark turned it .009 red. Matt was ready, .003 green, under .01, as he advances to the final. Pete Maduri dialed 6.06 against K.C. Kovas, whose 4.83 might as well have been etched in stone. Pete has the tree, trip zip with a 9, .0009, and K.C. is in trouble with a .024. Pete is trying to hold off the big charge of the dragster, takes .033, but dips .001 under, K.C. running right on again with a 9 to advance to the final.

The dragster versus door car final was a great match up. Both drivers stayed on the dials that got them there, K.C. 4.83, Matt 6.08. Matt is .0028 on the tree, K.C. .0017! Up top, K.C. puts it dead on again, 4.8367, making him .0084 total, Matt goes 6.10, K.C. taking the stripe and the $15k big check by .016, making the trip from Waterford, Ontario, well worth it!

In the ladder round of the $5k to win 64 car shootout, Mike Egan in his ‘94 Mustang matched up with Ricky “Bulldog” Adkins in his ‘69 GTO. Mike is .001, dead on his 7.01 dial with a 6, .0084 package locking out Ricky’s .045 hit, going .001 under. Mike Hornstein dialed 5.59 in his ‘69 Camaro, getting chased by Tyler Rudolph’s dragster dialed 4.51. Mike is .013, dead on 5 to be .0193 total. Pretty decent package, but Tyler is .003, dead on 5, to be .0089 total, Tyler taking .01 at the stripe to move on to the semis. Kevin Boring and Mike Keys went dragster on dragster, Mike .012 to Kevin’s .020, and Mike may have shook the hood scoop one too may times, going 4.83 on a 4.81, to be .006 behind when Kevin puts it dead on, 4.715. Will Holloman in a square body S10 was getting chased by Rich Coury wheeling Rob Berschneider’s dragster, 5.87 to 4.84. Will is .023, and Rich is .0004. At the finish line, Rich takes .029, but needed to take .024, breaking out 4.835, Will going dead on, 5.871.

In the semis, Tyler dialed 4.51, chasing Kevin, dialed 4.71. Kevin held a slight advantage, .017 to Tyler’s .028. Tyler takes the finish line by .0094, but breaks out by .0069, needed to take .0025 or less, Kevin going 4.72 to move on to the final.

Mike dialed the Mustang in at 7.00, getting chased by Will’s S10 dialed 5.87. Mike is .0048, Will .0067, and Mike takes .0153 at the stripe. He goes under by .0121, Will going dead on, 5.8713 to be .0080 total, meaning Mike had to take .0032 or less.

In the final, Will dialed 5.87 to Kevin’s 4.71. Separated by .005 in reaction time, .013 for Will, .018 for Kevin, both go dead on, 5.8760 and 4.7153, Will collecting the $5k by .0042. One day left, new entry only time trial at 9am, eliminations immediately after.

Big Grin that's funny Fern! I'd kinda like to see how it would look! Thanks, that one took a while to do, did it on my phone after the race was done so our videographer had all the details to go with the stuff he posts.

Sunday rained out halfway through round 4.
