After all the NMRA and NMCA eliminations are wrapped up various winners are paired up for the Super Bowl and the Run for the Rings. We kicked off with the NMCA and NMRA True Street winners with this mid eight second overall winner taking the win with an 8.51 at 166 MPH, earning a point for the NMCA side. The next pair up was Roush Super Stang winner Larry Fireston and E3 Spark Plugs Top Sportsman winner Matt Szymczak. Who took the win and another point for team NMCA.
Next up was David Hearn for the NMCA side from Magna Fuel Open Comp and Mel White from the NMRA side of the same class. This time White took the win and a point for NMRA putting up a 10.98 at 114 to Hear’s 10.80. Remember the cars are stagger started according to best ET during the event making for some very interesting match ups.
The next match would be Florida based Mike Clifford in his 1966 Cuda and Detriot Locker Truck winner Bob Dill out of Templeton, PA who put up a 10.06 at 133 in his 2001 turbocharged Lightning to score another one for the NMRA side. Corky Bumpas, Nostalgia Super Stock winner paired up with Donnie Bowles, Exedy Modular Muscle winner. Just about one second separated these two with Bumpas taking the win for the NMCA side.
ACT Pure Street winner Jimmy Wilson took on Xtreme Street winner David Hutnick who was number one qualifier, won his make up race from Bowling Green, this event and yes, the Super Bowl too, earning the “quadfecta” for the Straightline Performance team running a 7.73 on his 7.66 target after Wilson bogged down after the launch. Next up was Don Baskin, Nostalgia Pro Street winner against Haley James from Coyote Modified. James ran right on her index taking the win with an 8.31 and more points for team NMRA. NA 10.5 winner Leonard Long faced off with James Meredith who won Factory Stock with Long taking that round for NMCA running an 8.00 at 171 to Meredith’s 10.94.
For the next pairing it would be Steve Summers’ Pro Mod vs Renegade winner Alton Clements who ran a nice 7.68 at 179 but could not hold off the hard charging Summers who laid down one of his best runs of the weekend, a 5.850 at 255.97 MPH to score fro NMCA.
With just three pairs left it was advantage NMCA and Radial Wars winner Dewayne Mills set to face off with Andy Manson. Mill’s was favored here and rolled out to a 4.19 at 194 bringing home a critical point for team NMCA. Next up would be a pair of Street Outlaw cars with Rich Bruder racing for NMRA against Eric Gustafson. After the burnout Gustafson had to shut it down and forfeited the round to Bruder putting the pressure on the final pair to decide it all.
That match would be Drew Lyons and Glen Pushis from Coyote Stock and and Chevy High Performance Stock respectively. The pair left together and ran side by side to the stripe where the win light lit up for Lyons giving the NMRA side the win making it eight to two over all for Super Bowl victories.
