|REYNARDS REIGN AT DRY ICEBREAKER |
FORT ASHBY, WV Predicted rains held off for two consecutive days, allowing the 2006 Miller Lite Cumberland Airport Autocross Series to kick off under dry conditions, much to the satisfaction of 164 entries in the third annual May Icebreaker Autocross.
The B Modified Reynard formula cars of Greg Honeycutt and John Felten flew smoothly under the cloud cover to claim Fast Time Of The Day on Saturday and Sunday respectively
but not without drama as both drivers garnered their title on their last runs of the day.
On Saturday, fast rising BP Cobra ace Wade Chamberlain and the impressive DSP Impreza of Mike Moran laid down runs that earned top five spots among the open wheel racers, with Matt Felten and John Felten inserting themselves to in third and fifth overall in the family Reynard. Chamberlain still held FTD until Honeycutts last of five runs, when the Cumberland racer tripped the lights at 45.067 seconds to win by a mere .2 tenths of second.
On Sunday, a faster and longer course better suited the purpose-built open wheelers and they took to the top three spots. Ellicott Citys Dennis Howard squired his beautiful ASP Porsche RS America (repurchased after seven years in another owners hands) to fourth, gaining the days fender car crown for over Chamberlain. Matt Felten held FTD through most of the third session until Honeycutts last run, which, in turn, fell quickly as John Felten ripped off a 45.668 second final run to win Sunday FTD under darkening skies.
