Share:
Thirty-eight Route 66 Raceway drivers went to O'Reilly Raceway Park at Indianapolis on September 15-17 in search of a championship. After the North Central Division Series Summit Finals concluded Sunday, Route 66 Raceway brought home 10th place in the Team Championship points standings.

On Friday, four series champions from the Holly Carburetor E.T. Bracket Series competed in the Race of Champions -Super Pro driver Alan Ayres, Pro E.T. driver Frank Valencia, Sportsman Fred Marek and Pro Bike Donnie Banaski. Valencia qualified in first for the event, but lost in the second round to National Trail Raceway's Dan Trainer.

In the Super Pro series, Steve Hamilton made it to round seven of the nine-round event, but ended up breaking out by .005, handing the win over to National Trail Raceway driver Ron Baisden. Baisden went on to capture the Super Pro crown. Justin Ford (who finished in fourth place in the Route 66 Raceway point standings) made it to round six, but was defeated by Chuck Barton of Windy Hollow Dragway, who cut a perfect light.

In the Pro Series, eight Route 66 Raceway drivers were all looking to claim a victory, but it was Ken Kamba Jr. who had the best showing. Kamba Jr. lost in the fourth round by breaking out and giving the win to Chris Butcher from Bluegrass Raceway Park.

In the Pro Bike Series, Bob Boruta went out in the fourth round, one round away from making it to the semi-finals. Paul Waters lasted until the second round where he lost to Bruce Sauer of National Trail Raceway.

In the Sportsman class, Christine Kent (who won last year's High School title) had her Ford powered 1967 Mustang selected as the "Be Cool Radiators Coolest Sportsman Car."
