A shame to see one get snuffed into the wall. The engine rebuild will cost more than the body work.

Having the pleasure of meeting Bucky and Travis at the races a couple of times... it was heartbreaking to see Bucky damage that beautiful car a 2nd time.

Was bummed I had to miss attending this years shootout, but glad I didn't see that in person.

Please fill me in as to why these SS/AH cars haven't been reclassified??? Top dog in the shootout is 93 in the SS field? 15 shootout-SS/AH cars FAILED to qualify for the US Nationals.

Lol...reclassified to what?? I'd bet the none of them care as the shootout is why they are there.

You don't build a shootout car to worry about what is essentially a bracket race.

A bracket race? Really? Last time I checked, which has been about 50 something times now, the U.S. Nationals is about the farthest thing you could get from a bracket race. Do you really think a guy with a $100,000 drag car wants to pay all that money for entry fees and travel and on and on to NOT qualify? More than half the cars in the field didn't qualify for the race! Do you think that's fair to the SS/AH guys? NHRA needs to re-think what it takes to make these cars run that fast. The need to soften the index where the slower SS/AH cars can qualify for the biggest drag race of all time.

This years shootout was amazing. One of the closest competitions I've seen! It's awesome to see how close the cars are. Thanks to all of the drivers who chat it up with dad. He really loves talking to you all.

Tell your Dad thank you as well.

New business. NHRA D4 is having a national open on Nov 18 & 19. Record runs, grade point and class eliminations. Let's call it the WHO DAT CHOOTOUT for now so mark your schedule. So far the purse is already $2500 so let's get them crankshafts and valves back in and plan on coming down. Sea level in November, are you kidding me. My junk is in Arlington Monday for upgrades.

Super Stock eliminator is exactly a bracket race, unless you come up against a car in the same class, then it's heads up.

I understand the bracket race like competition but the US Nationals is about as far from a bracket race as it gets.

The only thing about the Nationals that's not a bracket race is class run offs.

Results for the second round of the Hemi Shootout at Maple Grove Raceway :

Wendell Howes .313 reaction, 11.568 seconds, 77.72 mph - WIN
Bucky Hess - disqualified

Jimmy Daniels .074, 8.288, 160.54 - WIN
Gary Wolkwitz -.060, 8.356, 156.84 - red light start

Steve Comella ..039, 8.442, 145.89 - WIN
Bye Run

Although this is an unofficial explanation, I was told that the disqualification for Bucky Hess had to do with his staging.
Apparently he decided that he was staged crooked after he had entered the pre-stage beam and then backed up. As the explanation continued, it seems that you cannot back out of a pre-stage beam without the direction of the starter. Only the starter can authorize a racer backing out of a pre-stage beam.

I hope this explanation is accurate and correct.

The new 2017 Mopar Speed Calendar is available at your local Dodge dealers. Larry Hill in his A/SA 440 Cuda made Mr. February and my Hemi Barracuda made Mr. October. Pretty cool. Hope to see everyone at the Gators. Merry Christmas everyone. Dyno
