Sunday, August 14, 2022 hosted the Firematic sponsored $1,000 to win in Pro and $1500 to win in Super NHRA Summit ET Points race which marked the next to the last points race on the season. In the motorcycle pit area, it was the Taco Shootout with free tacos and special awards and extra cash to the ET Motorcycle/Sled class.
Before getting into the results from the Sunday races, it is with heavy hearts that we learned of the passing of one of our fellow racers and supporter, Conrad Gordon. No matter what he was battling, Conrad could be found in most recent years on his scooter in the pits, checking on his friends and comrades exchanging encouraging words and advice. At this time we do not have any details of services but will keep everyone updated as the information becomes available. Rest in Peace dear friend.
