How Sweet It Is!
Honeycutt Slices Through Sizzler


WILEY FORD, WV – Cumberland racer Greg Honeycutt enjoyed the sweet taste of victory at the Summer Sizzler Airport Autocross and became the first driver in 2005 to score a double FTD (Fast Time Of The Day), sweeping both days of the fourth stop in the Miller Lite Cumberland Airport Autocross Series.

On Saturday, FTD was hotly contested between the Reynard Formula Ford 2000 cars of Honeycutt and two-time Cumberland FTD winner John Felten, with Honeycutt winning by a scant .090 seconds. Matt Felten completed the Reynard podium sweep 1.3 seconds back. Fourth went to popular Eldersburg driver Dennis Howard’s Porsche 996. First time Cumberland entrant Peter Gizmo of Kensington, MD rounded out the Top Five in his sinister silver and black Honda S2000.

Sunday’s FTD battle came down to Honeycutt and the younger Felten, with Honeycutt using a make-good run at the end of his session to grab the top spot under slightly cooler conditions. Howard was third and John Felten fourth. Fifth place overall went to Eric Coffman’s flying blue AS class Subaru WRX sti from Uniontown, PA.

The event hosted 166 entries from seven states, including appearances from the East Coast Old School Audi Gathering, Mini of Washington and the Capital Area Cobra Club.

European rally racer Pavel Kral from Prague, Czechoslovakia also made a guest appearance in the two-day meet, winning C Stock both days. Cumberland’s AP “Thunder Class” honors were split for the weekend between the Cobras of Wade Chamberlain and Scott Harrison.

Double winners in contested classes for the weekend included Honeycutt in BMod, Howard in SS, Meg Ellis (ES Miata), Dave Williams (CSP Porsche), Mark Boggs (DSP Porsche), Tink Phillips (ESP Mustang), Jim Harris (STX Mini Cooper S) and Mike McCagh (SM2 Corvette).
