The Summit Midwest Drags barreled into day four at Dragway 42 in West Salem, Ohio at wide-open throttle and ready to go. Racers who remained in contention for their class were laser-focused on turning in the two best time slips possible. There were a ton of spectators on hand soaking in all the drag and drive goodness the Summit Midwest Drags had to offer.
Day four of the Summit Midwest Drags was the most carnage-filled so far. Rick Russel in his fan-favorite 1979 Lil’ Red Express Dodge Truck made contact with the wall after getting water under his rear tires. Cory Bohl, who is leading the Gasser-B class in his 1967 Nova demolished a rearend during his first pass. Thankfully, Bohl was able to get the Nova repaired and make two passes before racing ended for the day. H-Pattern class leader Tyler Garlock had a really bad day at Dragway 42 in his 1998 Mustang. Garlock had a suspension part fail on an early pass and got it repaired so he could keep making passes. Well, on his next pass Garlock experienced some type of driveline failure.
Cole Rymarz is just 16 years old and he’s having a blast at the Summit Midwest Drags. The young gun is wheeling his 2001 Grand Marquis and laying down passes in the 15.90 range. Rymarz is on pace to be the youngest person ever to finish the Summit Midwest Drags and that’s pretty cool.
