NHRA Northwest Division Summit ET Finals
On Sunday it is everybody in the pool; all team members run in their respective categories and each win counts as a point. The points lead went back and forth all day long between the home team Firebird and its rival Woodburn.
As the day wore on a real dogfight emerged as the classes started to get into the late rounds. It all came down to the final round in the Pro class. Firebird Raceway was in the points lead with 71 points, in second was Woodburn with 70. However, the Warriors had an ace up their sleeves in the form of David Bronec. Bronec was in the finals of Pro versus Paul Jordan running for Lewistown Raceway in Lewistown, Montana.
If Jordon wins, Firebird wins and takes the title, if Bronec wins, that ties Woodburn with Firebird at 71 each. The win would go to Woodburn based on the NHRA tiebreaker rule.
At the green, both drivers had identical .013 reaction times. As the two cars went down track door handle to door handle and as they reached the finish line, Jordan tried to dump and give it back to Bronec. However, Jordon’s effort was a bit too late and he took the stripe but broke out by .019. Bronec was .002 to the good and took the win, giving the Sunday team title to the Woodburn Warriors.
