November 10, 2017

The 2017 season wrapped up at Las Vegas at the final LODRS of the season in the NHRA 43 race schedule. Lots of teams competing from all over North America were hoping to clinch division titles and possible workld championships. Dan was there mostly for fun and hoping to end the year on a positive note. Unfrtunately that did not happen as he wounded the bullet in his M&M dragster (the one he ran at the start of the year and all of the last couple years), as he sold his 2017 Spitzer to Chris Gulitti. He ordered a new suspended chassis for his 481-X and will debut that in the spring of 2018. He wounded it in qualifying and did not make elimination's.

A great weekend at MRP for the National Open. Dan wins the Super Quick 1/8 mile race on Sunday, taking out a couple RAD sponsored teams in the process. It was his first major win of the year.

 

Three other RAD cars were in the winners circle on the weekend as well. AL Hampton won Super omp Sunday and Zak Clarke won Super Quick in the first race (Saturday). He runner-upped to Dan on Sunday. Al Quigley won the Super Street gamlers race on Saturday. Greg Doughty was the runner-up on Saturday in Super Quick.

Below, Dan defeated buddy Justin Bond in the Semi finals.

Dan and Darien ran side by side in qualifying Sunday morning, but Darien's day ended early with some interal damage.

 

July 17, 2017

Dan won the Best Engineered award at the Woodburn Divisional a week earlier. That was the only positive from the weekend as he went out early in Top Dragster.

June 7, 2017

Wally winner at Home track and Home race:

Dan had a great rebound race after tough outings down South in March/April. With a new chassis to suit his big power with the Alan Johnson AJ-481x in the race shop and getting fitted, he ran his dragster combo from the last two years. Dan had a solid Friday and Saturday of qualifying and ran a 6.64 best, good enough for #7. He was also runner-up in the "run for the Money" final qualifier best package that he and RAD sponsor. Darien in his first big race at his home track ran a solid 6.80/197 to qualify #11.


Elimination's

Darien also competed in Super Pro where he went to the third round. His lights were strong and looked good, but but his round one loss due to the et falling off confused the team. They entered Super S-Pro to see if engine issues continued. He won the first wo rounds due to the other drivers handing the wins to Darien. After his round two win they decided to trailer the car. They examined the engine and found a few issues.

In round one, Dan faced Alberta rival Dave Senio. Dave had mechanical issues in the last qualifier and had to replace the converter in the car. His dial was a bit of a guess, but it ran close to his number but he was late on the tree and Dan got and easy win.

Round two could have been an easy win as his opponent Ed Hauer was debuting his new Holly EFI combo. The car was all over the place in ET. Luckily Ed went red as Dan was late, and was off to round three.

In round three Dan took on John Evans. Evans defeated Darien in round one, so it was payback time. They were close on their RT's, but John broke out by a bunch. Dan went under by a couple trying to catch John but got the win. He was off to the semi finals.

In the semis he took on tough Washington hitter Clint Giese. Dan got .013 on the tree and took a .013 margin at the stripe. He was off tot he final at his home event.

 

The final saw similar reactions as in the semi finals with Dan having a .016 advantage over first time finalist Dave Boucher. That was all he needed as Dan was off the gas near the stripe running a 6.679 on his 6.66 dial. Dan's margin of victory was .015. With the win Dan moved into 4th place in the Division Six Top Dragster standings.

Congratulations to Darien for not only getting his first ever round win in his new Top Dragster but also continuing to win rounds going to the final and earning his first win in the big class. A Super Pro win in only his second or third ever bracket race. Way to go Darien!!!.

Dan was testing what will be one of his last runs in this green and black M&M dragster. He has a new Spitzer dragster ordered and it will be here in the next week or two. The new 481-x powerplant just has way to much torque for the old dragster. Dan will compete this weekend at the Lordco "BC Nationals" in his trusty 2016 combo. Darien will compete at the Lordco Nationals this weekend as well in Top Dragster.

 

 

 

April 9, 2017

Dan ran in the 6.50's at the Vegas Divisional on the weekend but was a round one runner-up. Darien ran his career best 6.86, but he fell one spot short of qualifying for the tough 48 car field. He did get in as an alternate but he too lost in round one.

April 5, 2017

The LODRS gets underway on Thursday with testing.

April 2, 2017

The first race of the season is complete. The rad team is in Vegas for the Denso Nationals. This is really a test race for the team as they are running a brand new engine combination for the 2017 season. A 540 in AJ481-X with 4/71 blower. It will make a ton more power as Dan strives to be a top ten qualifier hoping to run in the 6.10-6.30 range.

The first weekend showed some promise but poor weather conditions including rain and heavy wind and a so-so track kept the car to the 6.60-6.70 range. Dan qualified as the quickest car in the bottom half and won round one against Jesse Adams. He lost to Kyle Seipel in round two. They will make a bunch of adjustments and get ready for the LODRS this weekend.
