|CHAMBERLAIN BREAKS THROUGH AT SUMMER SIZZLER |
WILEY FORD, WV The years biggest field was greeted by pink flamingos, sun, wind and rain as formula cars and fendered beasts split honors at the third annual Summer Sizzler autocross, leg four of the Miller Lite Cumberland Airport Autocross Series.
Saturdays sold-out autocross featured a tight battle for Fast Time of the Day (FTD) with the Top Five separated by less than nine-tenths of a second. The Cumberland-based Reynards of John Felten and Greg Honeycutt claimed first and second. Third place went to the Porsche RSR of Bob Williams, Centreville, VA. Travis Grabb showed that his Friday results were not a fluke, flying into fourth, .151 seconds ahead of crowd favorite Dennis Howard (Eldersburg, MD) and his yellow Porsche 996 TT.
As Sunday dawned, Wade Chamberlain had little to show for a weekend in which he was consistently knocking on the door - having the fastest car all night at the Devils Duel only to spin in the finals of the Eliminator Bracket, and setting the fastest time on two different runs on Saturday, only to clip cones on both. He finally broke through to win FTD on Sunday, holding off the flying Feltens in second and third. DC area SCCA standout Brian Hair was fourth in his ASP BMW M-Coupe. Bob Williams made it a Top Five double for the weekend, edging out Howard.
Double winners in contested classes on Saturday and Sunday included Howard (SS Porsche), Alan Pozner (DS Acura), Andy Lindner (GS Dodge), Rob Robeson (HS Dodge), Wood Hair (CSP BMW), Tim Eisel (EM Porsche), Karl Loper (SM Camaro), Jim Shultz (STT BMW) and Bob Williams (SM2 Porsche).
Local contested class winners included Steve Hotchkiss (Saturday AS Corvette), Pete Harrison (Sunday AS Honda), Bill Gearghty (Saturday BS Porsche), Meg Ellis (Sunday ES Mazda), Bill Nyga (Saturday BSP Corvette),
Kenn Nyga (Sunday ESP Pontiac), Fred Pfeiffer (Saturday DM Porsche) and Sean Pfeiffer (Sunday DM Porsche).
Other local drivers in the Saturday Top 25 included Tink Phillips (BP Daytona) 8th, Loper 11th, Steve Wilson (ASP Porsche) 15th, Hotchkiss 17th, Ken Bane (SM Ford) 23rd and Harrison 25th. Sunday local Top 25 drivers included Honeycutt 6th, Loper 11th, Phillips 16th, Bane 21st, Bill Nyga 22nd, Harrison 24th and Mark Boggs (ASP Porsche) 25th.
