SHAFFER, KIDD, PETERSEN & JENSEN SCORE GOLD CUP VICTORIES AT FOURTH GOLD CUP RACE
Former Firebird track champion John Shaffer put
together a near perfect pass in the final of Super Pro to earn his first
title of the season. Shaffer ripped off a .000 light and hammered out a
9.926 on a 9.92 dial at 131.71 to defeat former Junior Lightning track
champion Rayce Kidd. Driving the YMC-backed Dragster, Kidd put up a very
fine .009, 7.773 (7.78 dial)-170.94 to claim his first runner-up finish
by a tight margin of only .004 of a second in the Kidd Performance
With temperatures in the low 80’s under partly cloudy to sunny skies,
other winners in the Gold Cup chase included Mark Kidd, Rex Petersen,
Craig Jensen and Michael Jaggers.
In addition to the fourth stop in the Boise Muffler point’s series, the
event featured the 25th edition of the Bronco Motors Hot Truck
Nationals. Richard Rush and Garrett Quinlan both recorded victories in
the Pro Truck and Street Truck division, respectively.
