Canadian Glen Kernusky goes to his second final round...........of the year, unfortunately he did not come away with the win. Mike Janis runs his second low 6.20 of elimination's to take a 1/10th of a second win over the Canadian. This was the second time Glen had come for the bottom half of the field to make the final round of an IHRA National event. At the first event of the year, Glen was #16 qualifier but went through the top half of the field to get the win. Here he was the #14 qualifier and took on the "Iceman" in round one and ran his quickest lap since the 20% rule, a solid 6.286 to Jenkin's loose and early shut off 12 second et. In round two, Kerunsky faced Paul Athey and got another relative easy win, 6.30 to 6.95, when Athey got close to the wall and clicked it early. In the semi finals, He faced fellow Calgarian Rick Distefano, who was running very quick, but hurt an engine in the second round, after running 6.227 (the second quickest of elimination's). The team made an engine swap, but Rick pulled the trigger way too early and red lit away his chance. Glen ran a 6.294 and got lane choice over Janis who also ran a 6.294 in his semi final win over Fred Hahn. The final round was close off the starting line until the 330 clock where the Janis HP started to pull ahead and steadily moved in front of Kerunsky until a 6.226 (low ET of elimination's) to 6.321 came up on the scoreboards. Janis's win moved him into 1st place in the standings, ahead of Harold Martin who was a first round fodder at Martin. Rick Distefano, sits in 6th place in the standings but is only one round out of 3rd place.

August 3, 2004 Canadians cannot capitalize at third home event.

(photos courtesy DragRaceCanada.com)

Pro Mod------Canadians Al Billes, Rick Distefano, Glen Kerunsky and Carl Spiering all have the same thing in common this year when competing in their home country. They can't win! Billes and Kerunsky both have wins in the Hooters series this year, south of the border, and Rick has gone to the final round in Canada (Edmonton in 2004 and 2003). But the home jinx reared its ugly head for the third consecutive race. Distefano looked to be an even odds favorite heading into elimination's, when he qualified #2 with an awesome 6.174/229.08. In round one he took on Pat Moore and Moore had the starting line advantage and held off a tire shaking Distefano 6.372 to 6.376. Kerunsky went in as an alternate when Mike Lockwood could not make the call and he was defeated in a close matchup with Mike Castellana, Carl Spiering lost to event winner Mike Janis and Al Billes got outrun by Ed Hoover.

 

Mike Janis had a tough one in round two against point leader Harold Martin, and both cars ran great 6.21's. Janis had .07 at the tree though and won easily. He stream rolled over Ed Hoover in the semis and took on Billy Harper in the final round. The final was not close as Janis stayed in the 20's with a 6.25 and Harper shook at the top of first gear and cold only run a 6.49 in the final round.

The win moves Janis closer to Martin, and now trails his by 32 points heading into the home stretch. This is shaping up to be a close race with 5 races remaining.

Pro Stock------
Robert Patrick got his first win in his return to IHRA pro Mod this past weekend at Toronto Motorsport Park. He has run quite well in qualifying, but has struggled in elimination's with a semi final finish at Virginia, his only result out of the first round heading into this weekend. Patrick went into elimination's from the #13 spot with a 6.599 best and faced Tony Gillig round one. Patrick left first and ran his quickest lap of the weekend 6.548/212. In round two he faced Canadian Larry O'Brien and ran 6.57 to defeat O'Brien's 6.61. In the semi finals he improved on his earlier best, with a 6.547 to defeat Ron Miller's 6.603, and a trip to the final round for the first time in Pro Stock competition in a long time (eight years since his last win at Norwalk Ohio). On the other side of the ladder, John Montecalvo, Richard Penland, Pete Berner and Mike Bell running 6.51 and 6.53 in the first two rounds and clicking it early in the semis when Bell red lit. The performance seemed to favor Montecalvo based on the first two rounds, but Patrick has been pretty sharp on the tree leaving on his opponents in two of the first three rounds. In the final, Patrick again left first (.048 to a .102) and stayed out in front all the way to the finish line, as his 6.550 was quick enough to stay in front of a quicker 6.533/215 mph blast by Montecalvo

June 29, 2004 St.Louis: Gateway International Raceway. Final Pro Mod Eliminations

Danny Rowe follows up his r/u at Englishtown with a win at St.Louis.

Danny Rowe, cannon fodder in the first four events of the year in the AMS Pro Mod Series is now looking like one of the favorites, as he reaces his second final in a row, culminating with a win this past weekend at Gateway International Raceway. On a day when it was hard to celebrate with the death of Top Fuel favorite Darrell Russell, The team had to keep their cool and continue through eliminations knowing that there was a serious crash just earlier. Danny weent into eliminations with a very consistant car for the first time all season and used that advantage to run no worse than 6.22 and have no worse light than a .086 to defeat East Coast hitter Von Smith in a Ford vs Chevy Final. The win by Danny combined with the r/u a week earleir at Englishtown vaulted him into the top 6 in the standings, when only two races earlier he was not even on the radar screen.

He qualified in the top half and had the second and third quickest ET's of elimination's. Mike in the Western Beef Camaro, qualified #3 with a 6.22 and team mate Shannon Jenkins was #7 with a 6.27 to be the only Nitrous cars to qualify. The only other nitrous car entered, was driven by West Coast standout Dennis Radford, and he ended up #14 of 22. Danny Rowe and Wayner Wayne, two other West Coast regulars also failed to qualify at Chicago.

May 17, 2004 The Lucas Oil Canada West Doorslammer race #1 results

A CWDoorslammer Photo Gallery is here

 

May 16, 2004 Joe Mellof capped off a great day for the Maple Ridge racing family and a start to a defense of the title he won in 2003, as he defeated Rob Charlton in the final round. The 14 car field was lead by TCS Driver Bob Marshall in his 555 inch Ron Parr built BB Chevy. Duane Grosart, the expected #1 qualifier in his six second Blown 55 Chevy Pro Mod, got only one of four qualifying attempt in, and it was the last session on Sunday, so the team just made an easy lap to assure they would be in the field.

In Elimination's, the qualifying ladder is set up so the guys closest in qualifying race each other in the first round making for very close side by side runs. Mellof defeated Marshall by 2/1000ths as both cars broke out, and Mellof was closer to his dial by that slim Margin. Grosart dialed a six in his first round race against Ray Kirton, but only got a 7.12 for his second lap of the season with the new engine combo. Kirton's 7.69 was more than enough. Terry Spargo could not handle Mike Bedsworth's .028 light despite his best et's with the nitrous Camaro. Bedsworth had his best effort in Doorslammer, and it was with an all new car for the Marysville based driver. Rob Charlton defeated engine builder Brian Kikel in Steve Buerger's 63 Corvette, as both drivers were off on their usual good lights. Hall of Famer Frank Nelson went in deep and got the red light against the newly painted 62 Belair driven by Dave Warren. Unfortunately for Warren he hurt his new big inch powerplant and did not return for round two. John Collette was easy pickings for rookie Ron Beauchoin when he and crew chief Paul forgot to activate the nitrous bottle, and in the final pairing of round one, Steve Ellis won the race but lost the war against Grant Howell as he got the win but hurt the motor and failing to make round two. The second round saw only one pairing due to the 1st round carnage, and in the lone side by side, Mike Bedsworth defeated Ray Kirton in the blown pickup with a great .017 light and 7.82 to 7.67 for Kirton. Mellof got the odd car bye run and Charlton and Beaudoin both got singles due to breakage. In the semis, Mellof had a great .019 light and defeated Bedsworth who had a game .025 light, but could not run his 7.78 number. Rob Charlton got to be the other finalist as he defeated Beaudoin after both has rt's within .004 of each other. The final round had 2003 #1 and #3 face each other, when friendly rival Joe Mellof and Rob Charlton in opposite ends of the Chevy spectrum faced each other. Charlton in the newer 2000 S-10 faced the 63 Corvette driven by Joe Mellof. Mellof got the huge hole-shot .009 - .061 and scrubbed 10 mph off at the finish line to take a 7.59 to 7.89 win light. A good start to defending his 2003 championship.
