It was an emotional night for BSO Street Limited winner Randy Jewell. Jewell paid tribute to the memory of Nick Kalpin as he scored the win aboard Kalpin’s Ford Mustang. Kalpin passed away in a snowmobile accident this past February. His widow, children and parents were in attendance on Friday night to be a part of the moment. Jewell beat TJ Augustin in the final round after overcoming Augustin’s reaction time advantage.
Josh Williams got the win over Andy Bates in the BSO Street Limited 6.50 final after Bates ran under the 6.50 index.
In Mallare Trucking Top ET, Bill Balser, Jr. picked up his second win of the season overall at NYIRP as he defeated Zell Gaymon in the finals. Tony Madonia and Scott Feist made up an almost heads-up final in Top 8 with nearly identical dial-ins. Feist broke out at top end to give Madonia the win.
Mason Fix got his first win of 2019 in Gianna Mazia’s Mod ET. Fix got the win over Keith Banas after Banas ran faster than his dial-in. Lucas Salemi picked up win #3 of 2019 in Hebeler’s Sales Bikes & Sleds as he beat Don Becker in an all-sled final. Salemi held off Becker at the finish to score the win. In Tread City Tire Street, DJ Raiser made it two in a row in his Dodge Hellcat as he got the win after Daniel Knab lefT the starting line too soon in the final round.
Next Friday, August 2, the Supercharged Bounty Hunters return to NYIRP for Ladies Night. There will be special Ladies Pro and Amateur classes with the winner of each winning a diamond ring from Cash & Go Pawn plus a full slate of IHRA Drag Racing. Time trials start at 5 p.m.
