The All-Stars reported their event on Facebook. This is what they reported on their second day of racing at Lebanon Valley.
"Much cooler and less humid weather moved into Lebanon Valley on Sunday and race 4 is in the books. Marc Labrecque put the pick-up in the winner's circle defeating Gary Parker in the final. Congrats to both! The lone semi-finalist was Ed Bednaz who keeps winning rounds as he stays at the top of the points standings.
Thanks to all that came out to join in on the racing action this weekend. We dodged the rain drops when needed and had a great time at the annual BBQ. Also special thanks to our sponsors and supporting tracks that really enable us to offer the program we can!
Keep an eye on our website (www.asra-ne.com) for updated points soon. ASRA will be rolling into New England Dragway for our last two races on August 19th and 20th."
