Joliet, Ill. – Nov. 10, 2014 – Route 66 Raceway competitor Bruce Damewood will head to Pomona this week to represent Route 66 Raceway in the NHRA Summit Racing Series National Championship. Damewood, of Clinton, Iowa, makes the 145-mile commute to Joliet on a regular basis and earned a second place finish in the 2014 Rockett Brand Racing Fuel ET Bracket Series at Route 66 Raceway. That finish ensured a berth in the North Central Division Finals in Indianapolis this past September, with a chance to become Route 66 Raceway’s first ever representative on a national stage.  

It was in Indy that Damewood punched his ticket to the championship, with an elapsed time of 8.804 at 146.9 miles per hour to defeat Ohio’s Rick McWaters. This marks Damewood’s second career appearance at Pomona, who previously made the trip west in 2009 and finished as a runner up in the event. Nearly $150,000 in cash is up for grabs this year, with Damewood guaranteed a share of no less than $3,500.

“I feel incredibly honored to be representing Route 66 Raceway at Pomona,” said Damewood. “The other bike racers at Route 66 have brought out the best in me, and I will not be intimidated at Pomona by the competition”.

Nearly 40,000 racers compete each year across NHRA member tracks, with just 28 division champions left standing at the end of the season. That equates to roughly one driver in every 1,500 making it to the National Championship, quite the impressive feat for Damewood.
