The 2013 season is complete

The Rocky Mountain Shootout is in the history books for 2013 and we want to take the opportunity to thank all of the racers who competed and all of the spectators who attended this terrific race.

The event this year featured a national-event level field of Pro Mods, with fast times in 6.0 range, and great battles to make the field over four tough rounds of qualifying, followed by some really close races in eliminations.  Strong fields in Top Sportsman and Open Comp featured a lot of great race cars and close racing.

We truly appreciate the hard work and large investment that goes into building and competing a race car in any class, and we want to thank all of the teams who made the commitment to support this race by competing at the Rocky Mountain Shootout this year.

We would also like to thank our great sponsors for their support; JB’s Power Centre, JS Powersports, Challenger Downhole Tools, Precision Performance, Speedzone Magazine, Red Line Oil, Edelbrock, Flowmaster, Comp Cams, FAST Fuel Injection and Micky Thompson Tires. Without them this race would not be possible.

Special thanks go to Dean Murdoch, who worked very hard ahead of this race helping to organize and promote the event, and also served again as race director. Dean is also responsible for all of the excellent race coverage and recaps that are posted on our site.

Special thanks also go to longtime Top Sportsman racer Shawn Tracy, and his company Challenger Downhole Tools. Shawn did a lot of behind the scenes work in bringing out a strong car count for Top Sportsman, and supported every competitor in the Rocky Mountain Shootout by paying for a t-shirt for each racer. I’m not aware of another race anywhere that has that kind of special bonus for the racers, it was a great idea, and a really classy touch to add to the competitor entries.

We would also like to give special thanks to Pro Mod competitor Jay Syvertsen. He is a big supporter of this race, and showed a great commitment by bringing not only his car, but hauling two other racers’ Pro Mod cars from BC to compete here in Edmonton. Jay brings truly infectious enthusiasm for Pro Mod racing, and it’s a sure bet to have a fun event when he is there.

We are committed to promoting fast door-car racing here in Alberta, and are proud to announce that we will be back again for the Third Annual Rocky Mountain Shootout, so mark your calendars and be at Castrol Raceway August 30th & 31st 2014, for another great Labour Day Weekend!

2013 Comp Cams/F.A.S.T. Top Sportsman results

September 5th, 2013

Top Sportsman race #2

With a few cars breaking in Pro Mod not enough cars would fill the Pro Street class so we entered the non qualifiers from Pro mod into Top Sportsman. three cars were added and three more cars entered the Sunday race making a 26 car field.

Simon Kingsley was the #1 qualifier (based on his PM runs) with a 6.845/204.73 run. Steve Goddard, another Pro Mod transplant was #2 with a 6.864/202.61 run. Dean Bettenson was #3 with a 6.899/199.42 mph blast in his all Motor 57 Chevy. Tim Vogt was the final Pro Mod transfer, and his 7.072/196 run was good enough for the #4 spot in the field. rounding ut the top eight were Gary Miserva (7.103), Pat McNally (7.192), Garry Weslosky (7.330) and Maurice Boissonnault (7.407).

The sportsman ladder saw 13 pairings in round one.

All three pro Mods were gone in round one but they did put up quite a battle. Kingsley ran his quickest # of the weekend (he needed it a run earlier) going 6.718/206.94 on his 6.74 dial. It was a close one on the starting line and Simon caught the 1.2 second slower car at the 1100 foot mark. At that speed he did not want to lift and did not think his car would run quicker than his dial, but it did and he was done for the weekend. Steve Goddard also broke out running his best lap of the weekend. He went 6.822/203 on his 6.85 dial. That run would have put him #17 in the field of Pro Mods. He forgot about the tree though and left way early in his run anyway. Tim Vogt lost to Joe Graves on a hole shot. Tim was also off by .11 on his 7.27 dial.

Dean Hartley defeated Phil Bishop when Bishop went red. Rob Murphy Jr, took a .055 stripe against Maurice Boissonnault. Pat McNally defeated  Dave Dyrbye when Dave broke out by .009. Garry Weslosky had a strong overall package against John Cuglietta and won by .020. Gord Spak defeated a snoozing Chris Gould, Braden Halina who had been struggling with his Shelby Mustang, got a break when regular hitter Randy Modersohn went one thou red. Dean Bettenson who went rounds on Saturday continued that trend on Sunday with a .038 package against a red lighting Shawn Tracy (.001 red). Jamie Toews had the best package of the day with a .018 package (.010 light). He defeated Eddie Radjo. Rod Boivin got by Goddard when Goddard left before the third amber was lit. Gary Miserva had a .021 package against a fouling Bill Whiting. Ron Stennes defeated Farren Callihoo when Callihoo was 2/10′s off his 8.80 dial.

Round two:

Shaun Lachambre got the second round bye as he took out the #1 qualifier in round one. Gary Miserva had a .025 package and took out Gord Spak. Jamie Toews defeated the six second 57 Chevy driven by Dean Bettenson. Ron Stennes defeated Pat McNally taking a .018 stripe.  Rod Boivin had a terrible light in his race against Rob Murphy Jr. and Jr. took and easy 1/10th of a second stripe. Dean Hartley and Joe Graves had the closest round two race and Graves went .023 to Hartley’s .011. Grave ran an 8.133 on his 8.12 and Hartley went 7.618 on a 7.60 dial. Hartley got the win by . 007 of a second. Garry Weslosky got the luckiest win in the second round when Braden Halina  ran over a tenth under his 8.88 dial. He had a tenth at the tree but did not fender race the top end of the track.

1/4 finals

Shaun Lachambre got the closest win of Sunday’s Top Sportsman race as he got a one thou stripe against Gary Miserva. Shaun had a .036 package and Miserva had a .037 package.  Jamie Toews was .004 off his 8.36 dial in and won his race against Ron Stennes (7.941 on his 7.92 dial) by. 015. Rob Murphy Jr. got the bye run and her an a 8.315 on his 8.31 dial. Weslosky and Hartley had .010 and .016 lights respectively and Weslosky took the stripe and win with a 7.409 on his 7.37 dial Hartley was .07 off his 7.60 dial.

Semi Finals :

Toews had his worst light and it cost him a spot in the final round.  Lachambre had a half tenth on the tree and eased into the stripe taking it by .056. Weslosky took a small .005 stripe against Murphy. The two drivers were within .001 of each other and Garry was .004 closer to his 7.37 dial.

Final Round

The final round was not the kind of round either driver expected, but Gary Weslosky will take the win and the $3,500 winner’s cheque. He was way late on the tree but Shaun went .007 red so the rest of the race did not matter. He won before leaving the starting line.

Weslosky had a tough start to the weekend with front suspension issues that got sorted out just before the start of race one on Saturday. He would like to thank JB’s for their quick  parts turnaround.

Top Sportsman Race 1

Dean Hartley won race #1 in the Top Sportsman double header on Saturday. He was the #7 qualifier in the 20 car field and defeated Bill Whiting in round one Shawn Lacharmbre in round two and Rod Boivin in the 1/4 finals. He had the bye run in the semi finals and then defeated Ron Stennes in the final round taking a 4/100ths stripe. Stennes got to the final round by defeating Braden Halina (a .037 package), Maurice Boissonnault in round two, Pat McNally in the 1/4 finals and Dean Bettenson in the semi finals.
