Club Clash III - Recap
Club Clash III is in the books and everyone that attended had a great time. This event is getting bigger and bigger and it looks like it has quickly become a major part of our club's social calendar.
As a result of our accomplishments at Club Clash III we will be adding a new feature to our website in the next few days. It will be called "Fastest Iowa SC's" There are now five Iowa SC's in the 14's. (Note: If you are a member of SCCoIA and you want your car on the list, you need to scan a copy of your best time slip and email it to me or send it to me via snail mail! Each entry must have been witnessed by another club member to qualify for the list).
These five include, Casey, Brandon, Dale, Mike and Al. Brandon turned low ET of the meet (for the SC's) with a 14.377 @ 97.31 mph in his stock 95 5-speed. Dale posted his best effort to date at 14.632 @ 92.93 mph. His previous best was a 15.05.
With a few minor modifications Mike moved into the 14's by cutting almost a half second off of his E/T. His best of the day was a 14.816 @ 93.48 mph and that moves him just ahead of Casey who post his best time in June at Cedar Falls. Al rounded out the top five after he posted a 14.99 on his third past .... ever. He was driving his stock '94 SC.
The results from Sunday are as follows.
Brandon, Josh (4.6 V8), Al and Mike all got taken out in the first round, and Tony (5.0 HO) and Dale were the only 1st round survivors. Tony got taken out in round 3 and Dale broke out in the finals or he would have won. Dale posted his best time ever .... with the brake lights on!
This means that the traveling trophy is living with a GTP'er in Minn this winter, (Boo) but the Iowa GTP Club has assured us that they will give us three chances to get it back in 2003.
There were a total of 14 cars at Sundays event including one from Minn and one from Wisc. (Both were GTP's) Come on you guys, we need a little help here! When you're out numbered it a little tougher to win. We had 11 drivers get into the "Cash Purse Program" and the total purse for the event came to $33.00. The split gave the bracket winner $22.00 and the runner-up, $11.00. The entry fee for the Cash Purse Program was $3.00.
The next Club Clash is being planned for late April or early May 2003 depending on the weather.
