RAPID RX MIDGET – Brian Kraus, Westminster, MD, gained rave reviews on the show field and ran in the Top 10 all weekend in Cumberland Airport Autocross events. The Mazda rotary powered car, completed only days before the National Road Weekend, won a show trophy for Best Competition Car.

AMAZING ALLARDS – Saturday morning drizzle ended just in time to feature three Allards as the centerpiece of the third annual National Road Vintage Sports Car Show. Owners David and Louise Watson, Leslie Parsons and Jim Netterstrom arranged to meet in Cumberland and create this unique gathering. The Watson and Netterstrom cars raced in Cumberland during the 1950’s.


BRITS BRING CLASS TO 2004 NATIONAL ROAD WEEKEND

CUMBERLAND, MD- The third annual National Road Weekend braved some shaky weather early and blossomed into the best event yet commemorating the Cumberland Airport Sports Car Races.

British car owners from as far away as Tennessee added a touch of Old England to the 2004 event, including a dramatic and unique display of three wonderfully restored Allards and a bevy of Jags, MGs and Triumphs. Germany was also well represented through TT-East’s weekend long Audi TT owner gathering at Rocky Gap Resort.

Three special shootouts took place during two days of autocrossing at the Cumberland Regional Airport.

On Friday night, the Steel Town Corvette Club gained a measure of revenge on the Chesapeake Region Porsche Club of America in a time-handicapped club match with young gun Keith Baxter leading the way to 1.7 second team victory in his AS Corvette.

Fran Honeywell drove his ‘60’s era Bug Eye Sprite to the British Car Challenge Trophy on Saturday morning and James Mothersele was the fastest Audi driver on Sunday morning, earning a similar trophy as TT-East FTD.

National Road Weekend competition events were hotly contested and all three sold out for the first time in the event’s brief history.

2002 National Road Rally champions Greg Nagy and Ken Hornstein rebounded from their 2003 performance and nailed the Doug Macy designed, 130 mile “Continental Divide” course with only 9 seconds in penalties. The Harpers Ferry based duo edged out Equipped Class winners Fred Cochran and Steve Novotney from New Jersey who were 40 points from perfect in their Subaru WRX.

The Saturday Airport Autocross featured a down-to-the-wire race for Fast Time Of The Day between Chesapeake hot shoe Derek Schwarz in a Porsche 993 TT and the Swift SE3 of many-time Cumberland winner Fred Schroeder. Running in ever-drying conditions, Schwarz and Schroeder lowered the bar throughout the last run group with Schroeder taking the title by a whisker, 40.917 seconds to 40.954.

The fastest local car on Saturday was Will Lewis’ ESP class Ford Taurus SHO. Lewis finished 17th overall, edging Mike McCagh’s 18th overall run in his AM class Farm Use Corvette as the two local Top 20 finishers.

On Sunday, the biggest field in Cumberland Airport Autocross history trailed Schroeder again. The Mt. Airy Missile gained his fourth consecutive Cumberland FTD with a run of 43.883 on the longer Sunday course.

McCagh was the fastest local Sunday, earning 10th overall. Area residents Carl Loper (Camaro SS), Lewis, Mark Boggs (Porsche 924S) and Dave Williams (Porsche 944) also finished among the Top 20 Sunday entrants.

Two day contested class winners included Boggs in ES, Tim Eisel (Porsche 914) in CSP, Steve Wilson (BWM 330ci) in DSP, Matthew Olsen (Ford Focus SVT) in GS, Jeff Shliffka (Chevy S-10) in HS and Fred Pfieffer III (Porsche 914) in DM. Local drivers scoring single day wins in contested classes included Loper in SS, John Felten (Corvette) in AS, Mike Carson (Mazda Miata) in CS, and Kenn Nyga (Camaro) in FS.

Entries are now open for August 14/15 and October 30/31 Cumberland Airport Autocrosses and can be downloaded from www.nationalroadrally.com. Cumberland Airport events are limited to 100 cars per day and pre-registration is recommended.
