Indiana's Bunker Hill Dragstrip Joins IHRA
WEST PALM BEACH (Fla.) - The International Hot Rod Association announces that the historic Bunker Hill Dragstrip has signed a multi-year sanctioning agreement. Bunker Hill becomes an IHRA member track.

Founded in 1956 and located in Bunker Hill, Indiana, it is the oldest continuously running drag strip in the Hoosier State. The 23-acre property, owned and operated by Adam and Stacey Confer, features a full-service restaurant and an eighth-of-a-mile asphalt drag strip.

Adam Confer is a racer at heart. He worked as a crew member on his father's 1966 Chevelle and later competed as a driver in his own 1967 Camaro. It gives him an appreciation for the IHRA's commitment to the grassroots, Sportsman racers.

"I am excited about what IHRA brings to the Sportsman racer and look forward to being a part of that. IHRA, with what they do, their actions speak volumes," Confer said. "Their new partnership with ESPN is an example of that. IHRA does an amazing job with the grassroots racers."

It's an exciting new era for Bunker Hill with its ongoing facility and equipment improvements. They include improvements to the timing system, track prep equipment and safety equipment. Racers and spectators can expect to see ongoing improvements at this historic facility.

Mark Williams Enterprises Powermaster Performance  

It was fifty years ago in 1964 when Denver racer Mark Williams decided to quit his machinist job at John Bandimere, Sr’s speed emporium and go into business for himself building race cars. In the ensuing years Mark Williams Enterprises became the “go to” shop for High Country racers. In addition to the fuel dragster he campaigned with the late Bill Rice, racers like the Kaiser Bros., John Abbott, Vern Moats, Vern & Brian Raymer and Motes & Williams demonstrated the prowess of M-W’s chassis'. The word spread, and soon racers like “Ohio George” Montgomery and Florida’s Jerry Gwynn were winning NHRA events with Mark Williams’ chassis. Williams himself won the Division V Top Fuel Championship when partnered with Larry Frazier. \

TruStart, Re-Entries Come to Maple Grove Raceway

Listen up, Maple Grove racers! Here's an announcement from The Grove: "TRUSTART has been added to our Compulink timing system and will be utilized at all ET bracket events for the 2017 season. The Summit Racing ET Bracket Finals, held at Numidia Raceway September 14 – 16 will have the system in place. Trustart calculates a true red light between two cars and eliminates the first red light rule that has been in effect since the inception of the computerized system. The red light is calculated after the quicker dialed car leaves the starting line and the foul light is displayed in the proper lane."

Regarding re-entries: "We have been discussing buybacks/re-entries at our Money Trail meetings as far back as 2007. In the past, we’ve all spent too much time at the meetings discussing this issue. The results of those past meetings have always resulted in split votes and leaving at least 50% of the competitors unhappy with the voting results.

Over the winter months our management team discussed the re-entry / buyback issue and has elected to take this discussion out of our meeting for 2017. For 2017 Maple Grove officials have adopted a new Re-entry format with the outline of the program listed below that will be in effect at all 2017 Sunoco Race Fuels ET Series events:

• Re-Entries will be offered in Street, Pro and Super. No re-entries will be permitted in any class that starts round one of eliminations on a qualified ladder.
• Re-Entry fees will be based on the equivalent of class round money: $60 Super, $40 Pro, $30 Street.
• Re-Entries will run separate until down to (1) one remaining or total amount of cars in main event is (8) eight cars or less.
• In the case of an uneven amount of re-entries a bye run will be pulled using best reaction time from the previous round.
• Re-Entries will run their first round between first and second round of the main event.
• Re-Entries will be called to the lanes prior to each round of main event.
• Lane assignments for re-entries will be Street Lane 2, Pro Lane 7 Super Lane 8. Competitors will flip a coin for lane choice.
• Re-entries will not receive any Sunoco Race Fuel ET Series points.
• Re-entries must win two rounds to receive round money.
• In the case of poor weather or other conditions, track officials have the right to cancel the re-entry program for the day."

Don't Be Afraid Of The Deep
This is a reprint of my Bracket Racing 101 column from Drag Racer Magazine. If you're struggling to cut good lights then deep-staging should be considered.
In my columns Take Action For Reaction and Take Action For Reaction Part II, I discussed the two major components that comprise reaction time - the driver’s reaction to the tree and the vehicle’s reaction to the driver. The latter is somewhat easily adjusted: if the vehicle is leaving too quickly or too slowly the driver can leave at a different RPM, change the pressure of the slicks, or change the travel of the front suspension. But in the case of the driver’s reaction time, what can be done if he or she is just inherently slow? Remember, both components of reaction time must equal .500 in order to equal a .000 light (assuming a 5-tenths tree).
