Will this be an All Mopar Show or one of those Ford - Mopar Hybrid Shows?

If it's a ford Mopar Show then we can Grudge Against Scott Stump AKA SIXGUN...

I ended up leaving prior to the finals. First timer Marcus vs 2-time runner up Michelle. Andrew has all the details. Scott was taking photos.

Started with 8 cars. Terry Scott had a trans leak so that put him out.
Steve Nitti hauled his Procharger, fuel injected '71 Duster out from Minnesota. I know the car was running 11.4s in qualifying since I got to see the score board while I was still on my run.

Friday & Sunday there was wind. No rain or snow this year.

I got the ladder from Andrew.

Here are the MATS points.

Marcus Keltner (Rookie) - 35
Michelle St. Onge-Bohman - 25
Mike Keller - 15
Allen Dutra - 15
Denny Baierl (Rookie) - 5
Andrew Howard - 5
Scott Jones - 5
Terry Scott - 5

*** Can someone please confirm the spelling of Denny's last name?

I have him as either Baierl or Buierl (from the MATS 2012 results). Thanks!

Denny's last name is Baierl. He is the son of Dial In Don Baierl my bracket racing hero when I was in my 20s. Don and Denny are the owners of Sharadon Performance, the builders of Steve Nitti's car and many other awesome Mopars.
