(By Ernie Raschke):
Warm and sunny skies set the stage for Joe Santangelo August 10 when the All Star Racing Association returned to unfinished business at New England Dragway. Forty three NHRA Stock and Super Stock competitors converged on Epping’s power playground in their quest for a coveted championship. Fourth round action pitted Tod Bednaz and his C/S ’68 Camaro in a bid to hold off Mark Labreque’s hard charging GT/TC S-10 pickup. Bednaz scored the round win with a 10.55 second pass to end Labreque’s day. Joe Santangelo dropped a 10.36 in his GT/EA Camaro to dispatch Tony Filipone’s stick shift ’66 Nova that experienced mechanical difficulties during the run. Tim Stickles recorded a breakout 11.08 in his ’79 Aspen that was slightly better than Bob Letellier’s 9.42 breakout run in his new 2014 COPO Camaro to move into the semi final round.
In the semi final round it was Bednaz versus Stickles. Todd logged a 10.51 run on his 10.50 dial to push Stickles under the prediction, while Santangelo enjoyed a bye run into the final. That set the stage for Bednaz to take on Santangelo in the finale. At the finish line both drivers were loaded for bear and fans witnessed a double breakout charge that found Santangelo staying closer to the dial and going home with the win.
Fans of class racing can catch a double header on September 20 and 21 for the annual All Star shootout and final race of the 2014 season.
