TUESDAY

St. Patrick's Day in July, as Loose Rocker kicked off the Summit Racing Equipment St. Patrick's 300! Today was Old School Warm Up day with the winner taking home $10,000! After a day of great racing, we made it down to four cars to settle it all.

In the first semi-final, Bob Murphy, Jr lined up next to Cody McDaniel. Murphy dialed up 4.85 against McDaniel's 4.72. Murphy hit the tree with a reaction time of .010, and McDaniel had a .016 light. Murphy ran dead on with a 1 giving him a .011 package, while McDaniel ran 4.726 for a .022 package. Bob Murphy, Jr heads to the final round.

In the second semi, Blane Parrish brought the last door car standing to the water box next to TG Paschal. Parrish dialed 5.60 and Paschal dialed 4.56. Blane took the tree with a .017 light, and TG was .027 on the tree. Parrish ran dead on with a 7 and Paschal ran 4.570, giving Blane Parrish the smaller package and the ticket into the final round.

In the final, Bob Murphy, Jr. had lane choice and used it to boot Blane Parrish out of his favorite lane. Murphy dialed up 4.85 in his Racetech dragster and Parrish dialed 5.60 in the Camaro. Only .001 seconds separated them at the tree, so it was all about driving the big end. At the finish line, there was a lot of womping going on, and Blane dumped a little bit too much, running 5.622, with Bob running 4.871. Bob Murphy, Jr. takes the win today with a margin of victory of only .0025 seconds.




Congratulations Bob Murphy, Jr. on the win, and Blane Parrish on the runner up finish.

Tomorrow, the drivers will be duking it out for $40,000! Gates open at 8am. Time runs will begin at 9am, with eliminations to follow.

WEDNESDAY 40K

It was another great day of racing with the Loose Rocker St. Patrick's 300, presented by Summit Racing Equipment. The drivers were all out running for the $40,000 top prize.
In the semi-finals, Jeff Serra lined up next to Chad Axford. Serra dialed up a 4.48 and Axford dialed 5.74. Axford took the advantage at the hit with a .005 light to Serra's .013. Serra ran him down and drove the stripe just a little bit better, taking the win with a margin of victory of .0035 seconds.
In the second semi, Gary Williams and Gage Burch faced off. Williams dialed 4.76 to Burch's 6.28. Only .001 separated them at the tree, so it was all about the big end. At the finish line, both drivers ran under their dial ins, with Williams being closer to his, giving him the double break out win and a trip to the final round.
In the final round, Gary Williams dialed up 4.78 against Jeff Serra and his 4.51. This one was over at the tree, with Williams going perfect .000 and Serra turning on the red light by .003. Gary Williams takes home the first $40,000 payout of the week, with Jeff Serra coming in the runner-up spot for $7500.

FRIDAY

The largest payday of the week was up for grabs today in Loose Rocker's/ Brewers Body Shop 300, presented by Summit Racing Equipment. A large field made the call, each driver trying to get their hands on the big trophy and the $300,000 payday.
The first semi brought Doug Foley to the line with TG Paschal. Foley dialed 4.41 against Paschal's 5.69. Only .006 separated them at the tree. At the finish line, Foley recorded a time of 4.430 and Paschal broke out by running under his dial in by .004. Doug Foley heads to the final round.
In the second semi, Kyle Cultrera faced off with Randy Sessoms. Cultrera put 4.54 on his dial in board, and Sessoms predicted 6.09. Again, there was only .006 difference in reaction times. Cultrera ran 4.550 and Sessoms ran 6.079, breaking out by .011 and sending Kyle Cultrera to the final round.
In the final, Doug Foley dialed 4.43 and Kyle Cultrera dialed 4.56. Cultrera found himself behind by .013 at the tree. Foley ran dead on with a 2, giving himself a total package of .006, and Kyle Cultrera broke out by .008 trying to make up for lost time. Congratulations to tonight's $300,000 winner, Doug Foley.

SATURDAY

The Summit Racing Equipment Loose Rocker St. Patrick's Day 300 is in the books! The week of racing ended with today's $40,000 to win race. The day started off with a nondenominational worship service led by GodSpeed Ministry chaplain Matt Zapp. Then it was time to go racing! When we got down to the final four racers, we had a father and son, a driver in a rent a ride (car borrowed from another driver), and a door car.
The first semi featured the elder of the Gulitti duo, Chris, and the last door car standing, driven by Brandon Jarrell. Chris dialed 4.46 against Brandon's 6.46. Only 2 thou separated them at the tree. Chris ran 4.464 on his dial, and Brandon broke out trying to get inside of that package, running 6.458. Chris Gulitti heads to the final round.
In the second semi, Holden Dial (with perhaps the greatest name in bracket racing) facing off with Cory Gulitti. Holden dialed up 4.38 and Cory dialed 4.56. This one was over at the starting line with Cory Gulitti getting bit by the red bug by .004. Holden Dial heads to the final round.
In the final, Holden Dial had lane choice and dialed up 4.38 in the left lane, and Chris Gulitti put up a 4.46 dial in the right. Dial took the tree with a .008 reaction time and Chris left the line in .015. Holden ran 4.395 for a total package of .023, and Chris ran 4.479 for a total package of .034, giving Holden Dial the win in the $40,000 final race of the week, driving Michael Spencer's car.

The staff and management of GALOT Motorsports Park, as well as the folks at Loose Rocker Promotions would like to thank everybody that came out this week to make this event happen. Everyone from the drivers, fans, vendors, and employees, we thank you all!!
Congratulations to all of this week's winners!!

Looked like a good race was the full $300k paid to the winner or was this race pro rated per number of entries? I didn't see anything on the flyer saying guaranteed purse or if it was pro rated.

Just like some of the million dollar races, the event was based on car count. The flyer stated that there was a 325 car minimum on the 300K race, and that if not met, 100% of the entry fees would be paid out with the R/U, Semis, and all Round Money guaranteed, including the $1,500 to win 3rd round:
more than the $1,250 entry fee! We had 263 entries in the 300K. After all the guaranteed money was allocated, 100% payout left $194,750. We upped that to an even $200,000/Win.

Tuesday's $10K paid full payout. The 40K's had a 300 car min. Wednesday's 271 entries paid $34,150/Win with the R/U, Semis, and all Round Money guaranteed ($250 entry fee, $300 to win 3rd Rnd). Thursday and Saturday made full payout, $40,000/win. The $5K Racer Appreciation Shootout was a FREE entry race complete with $100 round money. 69 racers ran first round, which made for a total payout of $7,600.

We had great feedback from the racers, who loved the payout structure. The format made a huge difference in the bottom line for a lot of racers. Thank you to ALL of the racers, family and crew, and all of the GALOT and Loose Rocker staff for braving the heat for an incredible week of racing!

On another note, we had an unbelievable THREE PERFECT RUNS this week! Gage Burch laid down the first one, and then a day later, Joe Foley did it, followed by Shane Maddox in the very next round! Congratulations to all!

I respect the transparency Beard. I watched a lot of it on the live stream and the racing was brutal. also the race appeared to be very well run.

hopefully the promoters walked away with some coins at the end.

ep-props out to Torq. he had a good showing this weekend.

Very good explanation and good payout structure. I just could not find on the flyer where it said it was pro rated or guaranteed.
Thanks
