Fred Schroeder holds his time sticker aloft, fresh from gaining the first of his two FTD crowns on the last run of Saturday's Icebreaker Autocross organized by National Road Autosport. Dennis Howard gave chase at the Sunday Cumberland Airport Icebreaker Autocross but fell just short of Fred Schroeder's Swift. Dennis did beat the impending rain storm into the trailer.


SCHROEDER SCORES DOUBLE WIN IN ICEBREAKER AIRPORT AUTOCROSS

WILEY FORD, WV - Organizers envisioned the May Icebreaker Autocross at the Cumberland Regional Airport as an early season warm-up for the region’s performance car set. Instead, they were treated to a heated “catch me if you can” contest that came down to the last run on Saturday and a dramatic race against the rain on Sunday.

Todd Michel from Crofton, Maryland slipped his SCCA ESP class Mustang Cobra R into the field full of Porsches and Corvettes with little hoopla. He didn’t stay unnoticed for long as he scorched the Mark Boggs designed Saturday course with a blistering 42.958-second lap during the second run group. That run set the mark for hot shoes Pat Gordon (Porsche 914-6), Tom Daniels (Porsche 911C2) and Fred Schroeder (Swift SE3 who followed in the last group of the day.

Gordon appeared to have carried the day’s honors with a 42.427 pass using the Porsche in which his brother won the inaugural National Road Autocross last year. But Schroeder, who also won in Cumberland last year at the 50th Anniversary Shootout, buried the field with a 41.446 last lap.

On Sunday, impending rain spooked the fast cars into abandoning their usual last group tactics and lumped Saturday’s front runners together with Porsche Club of America champion Dennis Howard’s now familiar yellow Porsche 996 TT and one of his long time rivals, DC Region ASP driver Phil Dame (Corvette ZO6). Michel, Howard and Dame kept lowering the bar for each other in successive runs. Howard, who designed the Sunday course, eventually covered Dame and Michel.

But Schroeder was not to be denied. The Mount Airy Missile squired his Swift to the winning 47.639 run on the second of four attempts and was never threatened.

Several local competitors put in strong performances during the weekend. Josh West, Cumberland nosed his SCCA Mustang into tenth fastest time overall on Saturday. Dave Williams, Cumberland, surprised with 13th overall on Sunday in his Porsche 944 NA.

Drivers scoring double class wins during the two-day event included Mike McCagh, Cumberland (AM Corvette); Bob McClure, Pittsburgh (AS Corvette); Dave Stoner, Pittsburgh (BSP Corvette); Pete Harrison, Cumberland (BS Honda 2000); Dave Williams, Cumberland (CSP Porsche 944); Pat Gordon, Monrovia (EM Porsche 914-6); Steve Wilson, Frostburg (DS BMW 330ci); and Todd Michel, Crofton, (ESP Cobra R).
