STP Wednesday Night Drag Racing Results (Nov. 2)

By Jim McCombe

 

Only two events are left on the 2011 STP Wednesday Night Drags schedule, but Nov. 2 was a breakthrough evening for three racers who claimed their first class wins.  First-time winners included Modesto's Rubicel Quintero (Street), Richmond's Tracy Brooks (Sport Street) and Dixon's Chloe Macael in High School.

 

San Jose’s Steve Jaslovsky pulled off a hat trick and made it three straight after dropping Dwayne King of Martinez in the Gear Jammer final.  For Jaslovsky, it was a emotional victory as he the win fell was  his best friend Lars Edeen’s birthday. 

 

“Today he would have been 41,” said Jaslovsky.  “He passed Sept 11, 1998 in a trike accident while I was away in the Air Force and stationed in Panama.”

 

Below are the final round results including semi finalists for each contested class.
