November 4 & 5, 2016 – ADRL Race, Gateway Motorsports Park – Madison, IL

Everyone thought that Super Chevy at Gateway on Oct. 15th. was our last race of the year. With a lot of effort from Ken Kapper we were invited to another race at Gateway on Nov. 4 – 5th, 2016.

We were invited by Larry Jeffers that now owns the ADRL. American Drag Racing League.

The weather was tremendous and we had a good showing of 10 cars. A few of our racers had all ready put their cars up for the season, but we had :
Bryan Huffman – Ken Kapper – Tom Cray – Mark Campbell – Bob Mitchell – Ed Miller – Rob Rothweiller – Mark Dulle – Jack Kaylor and Rod Urish.

We had two runs on Friday and four runs on Saturday. There was quite a variety of classes in competition with some very fast cars. The show kept the crowd entertained at all times.

Jack Kaylor worked on his new engine and got it together in time to get it fired and loaded on the trailer. He was very happy as the little Rumblin Rambler made some 6.50 1/8th mile passes. Ed Miller broke his rear end on Saturday and Mike Cray filled in with his beautiful 35 Ford. Great job Mike!

They had a burn out contest going and Ken Kapper had at least a 660 Ft. burn out.

On the last run of the day Ken broke a rear axle.

We had our Chili by Bob Mitchell and Hot dogs by Mark Campbell and assorted other foods that everyone pitches in with.

It was a great race weekend and we will see you at the Spring Races.
