Default PRO E85 Race Results for May 27th !!


Wow !! What a great way to start off the 2017 PRO E85 Racing season at Great Lakes Dragaway !! We had 18 PRO E85 Racers make the trip to Great Lakes Dragaway for their Memorial Weekend Classic !! Brian "Frankenstein" Gustavus debut his super cool Blown BBC 65 Impala but was not ready for qualifying. Brian "Blackout" Snyder also debuted his new super clean Mustang. Mike "Mad Dog" Sisson also debuted his new "G Body" Buick (BBC / NOS) combo. "Tricky Ricky" Klibofske was back with his super cool Blown BBC Trans Am. We had 17 cars qualify for the first PRO E85 race of 2017 and Steve "Hammer" Penrod came out on top with 8.918 !! Steve "Hammer" Penrod put on an awesome show for the fans winning the Van Senus longest wheelie bonus, the Reliable Diesel Performance highest wheelie bonus and the Monster Performance best reaction time bonus (.022) !! Mike "Silver Bullet" Phipps got the Van Senus Best Burnout Bonus !! Duane "Crusher" Waldrop got the Legends Racing Best 60 ft Bonus (1.218). We have 5 PRO E85 cars in the staging lanes (waiting for our 3rd round of eliminations) when a jet car caught on fire and melted the wires off the tower !!
