Infineon Raceway STP Bracket Drags Results (July 4)
By Jim McCombe

With the completion of Monday's 4th of July STP ET Bracket race, seven races are now in the books with just three points events remaining on the 2011 schedule.

Monday's class winners were Chad Axford (Super Pro), Mark Warmouth (Pro ET), Nikole D'Adamo (Sportsman), Terry Turner (Motorcycle) and Marko Perivolaris in High School. Mitch Whorton claimed the Trophy class title recording a perfect reaction time against final-round opponent Dwayne Opperman for class bragging rights. Jake Morris of Arcata put away Manteca's Chris Thode in the Nor Cal Top Comp final.

It was a reversal of Sunday's final in West Coast Top Sportsman, when Dave Cook took out Jeff Gillette making up for the loss that he suffered just 24 hours earlier by Gillette. Dan Hall stopped Jack Freckmann's Lucas Oil-backed dragster in the Super Comp final and it was Danville's Larry Bradshaw over Tracy's Shawn Steele for Super Gas honors. Orangevale's Joe Janusch, in only his second attempt in the Super Street class, emerged victorious edging out Stephanie Paz in the final. The Trophy class final featured a pair of Wednesday night racers with Mitch Whorton getting the nod over Dwayne Opperman in the all Napa final.

Low qualifier for the second straight day was Gary Stoffer, husband and crew chief of Pro Stock Motorcycle rider Karen Stoffer, who was enjoying a weekend off from the NHRA tour.

The next race in the STP ET Bracket series will be another two-race weekend set for Aug. 13-14, which will be aired live on
