Ladies and Gentlemen,… Start your Engines!!!

The 2016 Slant 6 Drag Racing season is about to begin and we have a whopping 26 races across the country!! Team Green has created two opportunities for more of the Mid-West racers to get involved with new races at Centerville, AR and Tulsa, OK.

The racing kicks off with the usual Mopars At The Strip (MATS) in Las Vegas 18-20 March. They need an 8 car field to be in the program, so if you’re in the area bring your Slant powered vehicle and support their efforts.

There are so many races this year, bouncing all over the country that I’ll just list them all here:

18-20 March – Las Vegas, NV (1 race)
8-9 April – MoKan, KS (2 races)
14-15 May – Hagerstown, MD (2 races)
21-22 May – Redding, CA (2 races)
5 June – Sacramento, CA (1 race)
5 June – Centerville, AR (1 race)
25-26 June – Bristol, TN (2 races)
25 June – Woodburn, OR (1 race)
16-17 July – Samoa, CA (2 races)
22-23 July – Knoxville, TN (2 races)
13 August – Woodburn, OR (1 race)
19-20 August – Wilkesboro, NC (2 races)
16-17 September – Clay City, KY (2 races)
1-2 October – Redding, CA (2 races)
8-9 October – Hagerstown, MD (2 races)
5 November – Tulsa, OK (1 race)


There is a new twist being added this year as well. Someone (Okay,… Me) put a $100 Bounty on the 2015 Champion. I’ll kick in another $100 if this year’s Champion comes from West of the Mississippi River. In fact, let’s just add another $100 if this year’s Champion is from one of our Mid-Western states. There may be more added as the season progresses and more people decide to pitch in.

So stay tuned right here throughout the year for the latest race coverage and points updates. I'm Rob "Snagglepuss" Simmons, your International Slant 6 "Laff-A-Lympics" Drag Racing commentator.

Post subject:  MoKan Results

The race at MoKan had a nice turnout with 3 Rookies and an East Coaster in attendance. Once again Team Green showed us how to put on a good show and treat racers right.

Bill Barksdale takes the lead as our National Champion with a win in the 1/4 mile race on Saturday. He also won a round in the 1/8 mile race on Friday.

Another way that Team Green takes care of racers is providing both 1/8 and 1/4 mile racing opportunities. :wink:

First time Slant 6 racer James Soard takes over the #2 spot and lead as Rookie of the Year with his win on Friday.

Another first time Slant 6 racer Jeff Strahl finished second on Friday.

Rookie George Kelley returned to MoKan this year to race on Saturday.

East Coasters Rodney and Alanna Hargis travelled from Tennessee to show Team Green some support and for Rodney to earn some points in his bid for his 3rd National Championship. Rodney has been racing Slant 6's since before our series began and was our National Champion in the inaugural year in 1998 and again in 2005. Alanna provided a very good round by round race report here: http://www.slantsix.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=59316

What does it mean when it says (2 races)? Two days of racing or that there are two separate races?
Just wondering as I will be at the first Mason-Dixon event.

Post subject:  Mason Dixon

Apologies for the late reporting. I was on leave all last week.

Great turnout at Mason Dixon with a couple new records set. They aren't official until Seymour verifies them, but Will Burns' turbo Barracuda blew away the current A/S (Unlimited) by over a full second with his 9.006 run (That's 1/4 mile, not 1/8!! :-) )

Lots of new Rookies joined the family at Mason Dixon as well with 4 new faces and one returning from last year.

Post subject:  Mason Dixon Results

Here are the Mason Dixon results broken down by racer for each event.

There is a new rule that took effect starting with this race that states:

Quote:
If there are two or more races run on the SAME DAY (such as for a rainout makeup), then the racer only accumulates 5 points for the DAY of racing and not for each individual race on that day.


That is why you will see some racers with 0 points. It is because they were there at the track only on Sunday. They were able to participate in both races, but just got the 5 attendance points.

Sunday Race # 1

Name Round points

Ryan Covalt...............55
Greg Ondayko............45
Will Burns..................35 One Day
Rodney Hargis............25
Ken Anderson.............25 One Day
Rick Covalt .................15
Jennifer Koehler (R).....15
Andrew Shank.............15 One Day
Ron Hamby.................15
Dan Gravatt.................5
Derek Gordon (R).........5
Derrick Sword..............0 One Day
Denny Covalt...............0 One Day
Brian Droschak.............5
Lou Madsen..................5
Micah Covalt.................5
Norm Foster.................5

Post subject:  Redding Rained Out

The Redding race was rained out. There were 7 racers there to earn 5 attendance points.

Bruce Pine
Dana Prater
Andrew Howard
Doug Chow
Mark Murray
Roy Murray
Scott Silkwood

I also added 20 points to Will Burns for blowing away the A/Unlimited 1/4 mile record with his Turbo Barracuda. He ran 9.263 @ 140.49 MPH. I believe his fastest run was a 9.09, but he needed another time slip within 1%. Could we have the first Door Slammer Slant 6 in the 8's this year!? :shock:
