Due to events seen at the last running of “THE LIST” an additional rule will be put in place for all future “THE LIST” races.

A racer may not progress up “THE LIST” by more than two positions by virtue of no shows in one night. We feel this is necessary in the spirit of competition after witnessing racers jumping seven positions because of broken cars and no shows. This will allow those experiencing problems a little more time to defend their position. Jumping up “THE LIST” by taking the tree and strolling down the track is not the way to earn your position on “THE LIST” and against all principles in the spirit of competition.

In speaking of defending positions, questions came about recently as to why the #10 position could not call out the #9 position before a challenger could race #10. If that was allowed and the number #9 position lost and moved to number #10 he is then forced to race the challenger that has won the run off races. This means he is forced to defend his position twice in one night. The rules state a second run off must be mutually agreed upon and in that circumstance there is no choice on the second run off between #10 and the challenger, that race has to happen unless there are no challengers. No racer present can be required to defend their position more than once in one night unless mutually agreed.

Next running of “THE LIST” will be Wednesday July 8, 2015

He is what many call a racing machine, A&B Tire Pro Eliminator Champion Mark Winterbottom.

Putting together a championship drive is tough.   Ask anyone who was lucky enough to come out onWinterbottom 2 top and they likely will tell you it’s a daunting task.  That isn’t lost on Mark Winterbottom.  But, to see him week in and week out you wonder if ever fazes.  He is what many call a racing machine.  Mark captured his 9th A&B Tire Pro Eliminator championship this year in dramatic fashion.  Yet, even when he was locked into a tight, four-way battle with brothers Jared Kinson and Jason Mazzotta, and long time friend Joe Silva, Mark kept his cool.

A Tale of Two Knights

New England Dragway Ray Knight

It doesn’t come as a startling revelation that capturing a championship in any category at New England Dragway is the result of determination, skill and hard work.  This year’s Indy Auto Parts Super Pro Champion Ray Knight is the epitome of those attributes.  Ray has been part of the New England Dragway racing community for decades, recognized by his peers as one of the toughest drivers on the track.  But, if you ask him about the most thrilling aspect of this year’s hard fought battle you will not hear stories about margins of victories measuring in the ten-thousandths or near perfect reaction times.  Instead he will tell you it’s the opportunity to share the podium with his son Steven who captured the E.C.O.P.E. Junior Dragster crown.
