The Quick Fuel Technology Halloween Classic presented by Harland Sharp was 8 days of fun, fellowship and racing. Mother Nature brought us sunshine, rain, wind and snow. And since the “Sunshine Flag” was flying high atop race control, there was no way the event would be cancelled ‘due to weather’. Flying the Sunshine Flag was a tradition started many years ago and was made by Pat Varner specifically for this event. This year, she gave the flag a make-over.
Sunday evening the 40th Halloween Classic Grand Champion was crowned, Jono Gerber from Shreve Oh. Gerber (Mallory Super Pro) was a firs time Halloween Classic Class Champion. In fact, all four of our class winners, Sean Dornan (Mr. Gasket Pro), Roy Safreed II (Wiseco/Cylce Tech Super Bike) and Nick Hastings (Accel Sportsman presented on time by TFC Transportation) were first time Classic winners.
The Grand Champion has four prize packages to choose from, a home cinema, a Hawaiian Vacation, a Disney Vacation or a Dream Cruise. Gerber was asked in the Winner’s Circle which prize package he wanted and he stated that it was Tara's (his wife) birthday and he wanted to share his prize package with her. Since she was not present he said he needed to consult with her first before making any kind of decision. But none-the-less he was very excited in winning his first Halloween Classic!
Sean Dornan our runner-up didn’t go home empty handed as he won a very nice prize package that consisted of four Mickey Thompson ET drag tires, a set of Roller Rocker Arms from Harland Sharp, 40 gallons of racing fuel from Sunoco and a $200 Gift Certificate to RJS Racing Equipment.
Some interesting tidbits from the race, Kayla Young was our youngest and last female racer left in competition. She made it to the semi-final round of Accel Sportsman delivered on time by TFC Transportion. Two-time Halloween Classic Grand Champion who did his best in trying to make it three, Mark Fulk also competing in the Sportsman category made it to the ¼ finals. Randy Scheuer Jr former Halloween Classic class champion was hoping for the opportunity to compete in the run-off, as his last opportunity in 2008 was denied due to extreme high winds, but Rex Burnett took him out in the semi-finals.
Earlier in the day, the ever so popular Trick Flow ‘Air Show’ was ran after being postpone due to snow and rain from the night before. There were some pretty awesome wheel stands and couple that needed more ‘practice’! “Stunt Man Steve” Kull’s 64 Wagon traveled the furthest with his wheel stand, making it almost to the 300’ mark. Tom Evans driving the orange 71 Nova with big ugly spiders crawling all over it was awarded the highest, as he was able to get the entire car off the ground!
