04/14/07 - Englishtown, NJ - The Cartek Racing Pro 10.0 Index presented by Silly Goose Racing Stables was also doing a double header alongside the East Coast Supercharging Corvette Challenge today due to the previous snowed out event. A first in our history and a true test for just how reliable a 10-second car can be. Fresh off completing the first race of the season, the same drivers were attempting to qualify for a second race.

Thirteen Corvettes entered the class for this race with Rob Zona and Joe Latona not entering the second session and Tom Sabolevsky getting in on this session in a strategic move to gain points and support the class. 10 of he registered drivers made attempts this round of qualifying. At the top of the ladder David Shen, Franklin Lakes, NJ, again with his 383 cid naturally aspirated 1965 Corvette with a 10.054@ 132. Next was Wayne Keegan, Freehold, NJ with his 1980 hard launching wheels in the air every time Corvette sporting 468 cid at 10.065 @ 133.24. He was followed by the first session winner, Chris Young, Carmel, NY, with his Blue 1993 Corvette with his "Uncle Built" 434 cid at 10.131 @ 133.78. Michael Conway, Freehold, NJ, with the original 346 cid motored 1997 Torch Red Corvette sporting the laughing gas system was in next at 10.152 @ 130.02. George Smith, Brooklyn, NY, was in the fifth spot with his 1978 468 cid Blue Corvette with a 10.171 @ 127.56. Jerry Land, Fort Littleton, PA, with a 2002 427 cid nitrous Corvette was in the sixth spot. I placed my 1999 Torch Red Sled in the 7th position with the new Vette Doctors 402 cid LS2 with a 10.541 @ 128.22. Tommy Michalkowski, Brick, NJ, was up late into the morning prepping his "Anger Management" APS turbo'd 1997 with well over 100K miles 346 cid motor on the bump spot with a 10.632 @ 132.83. On the outside looking in were Mark Shaw, East Lyme, CT with his nitrous 511 cid 1970 Monza Red Corvette a 10.666 @ 103.18 as he having controller issues trying to dial back the car to a 10.0. Stephan Schawaroch, Glendale, NY gave it a try but was on the bottom of the list with troubled 14.919 hoping to improve in the one remaining slot. Alan Eckert, Tom Sabolevsky and car number 1960 did not make attempts this round.

Surprisingly none of the eight qualified cars would improve on their first qualifying times so the only thing left was to see if the three drivers out of the 8 would bump their way into the field. Stephan Schawaroch got it together and improved on his time running 11.018 @ 131 .78 but was not enough to bump into the field with Michalkowski holding on with a 10.632. Car number 1960 made a pass and nearly bumped, on only Tommy out of the bump also Shen out of number one. The pass was too quick. He crossed the stripes with a 9.897 @ 137.43 mph.

Round 1

The first pair was Chris Young (3) vs Edgar Perez (7). Young got himself a free pass when a gremlin attacked my car. The car be dumping fuel every other pass or two and the bog itself and go nowhere. The tricky little goblin slowed me to a .328 light and 14.784 ET sending Chris to the next round with and easy 11.252 @ 113.26. Jerry Land (6) would face runner-up in the first race, Wayne Keegan (2). Keegan took the reaction time advantage when he lifted the wheels to a .042 reaction time. Land would trail with a .166. Keegan slowed his car to a 10.414 @ 130.40 but lost the stripe and match when Jerry hustled across with 1 10.205 @ 124.25 to capture his first Pro 10.0 round win. David Shen (1), who was mistakenly identified in the computer as an alternate when he in fact was the number 1 qualifier for the second race in a row, would take on George Smith (5). This was a close one as Shen left the starting line with a .078 RT to Smith's .083. the ET's were close too but not close enough as Shen took the win with a 10.205 @ 124.25 to Smith's 10.380 @ 125.03. The final pair placed Michael Conway (3) against Tommy Michalkowski (7). Conway who usually struggles at the tree, figured it out and chopped the tree down with his bare hands with a .036 reaction time and Tommy's was not bad either with a .051. Conway had too much power for Tommy to make it up today as Conway took the win with a 10.314 @ 116.84 to Tommy's 10.674 @ 133.01. It is evident that reaction times for the class are improving overall in this the second race of our second season.

Round 2

Michael Conway (4) and Jerry Land (6) were up first to start this round. Conway knocked off what we left of the tree with a .038 reaction time and he needed it. The car ran 10.654 @ 125.20, a little off his qualifying pace, but Land's Corvette fell off some too as he ran 10.889 @ 125.88 and Conway was on his way to his first Pro 10.0 final. Shen (1) and Young (3) are looking like they will bring us some memorable matches this season evidenced by this close match in the semi-final. Shen was out with a .083 followed by Young's .089. Shen took this match with only the RT advantage but also lit the boards with a 10.134 @ 128.92 to Young's trailing 10.224 @ 132.90. The final was set with David Shen, two time event winner in 2006 and Conway in his first final

Final Round

I could easily tell you "Little Red Corvette" was going to win this one but not which won. Conway got here turning up the wick on the tree and would need a good light to keep pace with Shen. He did it again, taking the tree advantage for the third time in a row with a .054 to Shen's .093. Conway would muscle up the track in the lead but lost it when his Corvette can only manage a 10.514 @ 134.62 to Shen's quicker 10.269 @ 121.13. Conway could have been hurt a little as he did not have time to put in a fresh bottle in the car for this match but nonetheless he gave it a great try. Shen had done it again. This is his third Pro 10.0 victory, first this year and on the strength of his two number one qualifying spots today, took over the points lead that Chris Young held for only a few hours.
