Participants at the NAPA Import Summer Jam presented by
Lyle Pearson Acura endured the hottest day of the year as temperatures
climbed to 101 degrees under sun-filled skies. With track temps pushing
140 degrees and a correct altitude just north of 6,500’ above sea level
it certainly made for an interesting day of racing (and testing earlier
in the day)
Sweeping the day’s largest class, Rich Pedraza Sr. drove his `01 Honda
S2000 stick convertible to a winning 15.78 on a 15.75 dial-in at 90.80
mph. The owner of Rich’s Auto Care & Dyno defeated the `04 Neon of
former Division 6 Sport Compact champion Aaron McCoy who finished at
17.71 (17.68 dial) 78.65. The Sport Compact Bracket #2 final down the
tightest finish at the margin of victory was a mere .005 of a second.
In Street Bike action, the two quickest bikes on the property met up in
the final round. Jeremy Wanders won top honors in a double breakout
final. The current point’s leader posted a 9.16 (9.20 dial) to clip Dave
Allen who ran further under at 9.28 (9.35 dial).
Earlier in the afternoon, Wes Morris stopped Alex Steen in the Meadow
Gold Junior Dragster point’s stop.
