NDRL drivers cruise into Norwalk
- Posted July 20, 2018 -
The Competition Products-NDRL Championship Series rolled into Summit Motorsports Park for the tracks annual Blue Suede Cruise event. The grounds were packed with over 2500 show cars and over 300 race entries all trying to be holding a trophy on Sunday. In typical Bader family fashion, to get there entrants and fans were also treated to live music and a huge aerial fireworks display.

Qualifying will go down in the history books as the most competitive rounds ever recorded since our inception and the amount of dead on runs is staggering. This race seems to bring out the best in everyone and with the new track surface tuning was made easier.

Quick Fuel Technology PRO Gas had eleven drivers running dead on the index to start the party with Jaxon Messamore ripping off a lap dead zero to take the point and hold it claiming the potential first round bye run and the Dishon Transmission Service low qualifier bonus. He was followed by Nick Dishon, Gary Wildy, Rob Davis, and Bob Mitchell rounding out the top five. Semi-final pairings found Phil Stamps dropping pushing Bob Frazee onto the trailer and Shawn Grant loading up Bob Eaker to meet in the finals. The final was all Stamps as he left first leading Grant to the stripe to take the win.

Renegade Racing Fuels PRO Comp had five drivers hitting dead on with Hoosier native Shane Rasler taking the point and the Dishon Transmission low qualifier bonus. He was followed by Jack Ingersoll, Jack Sidor, Jeff Lawson, and Brett Edwards. Semi-finals found Dave Bommarito advancing over Jay Rowe to meet up with Gary Leever who advanced with a bye. The final was all Bommarito as he left on Leever taking the stripe and the win.

Phenix Industries PRO 7.5 found three drivers running dead on the index leading into race day with Buckeye hopeful Brian Freund running dead on zero followed by Boom Boom Leonard, Kerry Millet, Bo Boles, and Pat Malloy. Fruend found himself holding the possible bye run and the Stanke Motorsports low qualifier bonus. Semi-final pairings found Kelly Key downing Tim Devore to meet up with teammate Bo Boles who advanced with the bye. The final was all Boles as he crushed the tree and led Key across the stripe for the win.

Ross Racing Engines PRO 7.0, the fastest cars on the property, had five drivers running dead on the index with Robbie Freels inching out Preston Davis to take the point and the Stanke Motorsports low qualifier bonus followed by Cory Millet, Jim Blake, and Jeff Sanborn. Semi-final pairings found Billy Smith advancing over Gordon Horn to meet with up Sanborn who rode the bye into the finals. The finals were over early as Sanborn tickled it red allowing Smith to take the win.
