Sherbondy, Burns Headline List of Bunker Hill IHRA Ironman Winners

Thursday, 20 June 2024

BUNKER HILL, IN — David Sherbondy and Billy Burns raced to Top and Mod victories at the IHRA Ironman Classic at Bunker Hill Dragstrip on Saturday, June 15.

Jim Andrysiak (Sportsman), Jonny Ard (Motorcycle) and Tony Virgilio also went home with prestigious IHRA Ironman trophies after winning their respective classes at Indiana’s oldest drag strip.

Sherbondy captured the Bellman Oil Top (Box) victory when final-round opponent Melissa Burns fouled at the start. Sherbondy went down the track in his dragster in 5.05 seconds on a 5.02 dial after a solid .011 reaction time. Burns was a little too quick at the tree -.026, which offset an otherwise winning effort of 6.001 reaction time on a 6.00 dial.

Her husband, Billy Burns, brought home the Ironman for the All Seasons General Contracting Mod (No Box) class. Burns had the great .008 start to go along with a 7.66 run on a 6.05 dial. Runner-up Tristen Severns red-lighted on a 6.388-second run with a 6.39 dial-in.

Andrysiak was the winner over 2023 track champion Randy Wolfe in the All Seasons General Contracting Sportsman race. Wolfe was a little better .049-.057 at the tree, but Andrysiak made up with an 8.03 reaction time against an 8.00 dial-in time. Wolfe finished in 8.73 seconds with an 8.73 dial-in.

The trophy for the Brandts Heating, Cooling and Electrical Junior Dragsters went to Virgilio, who came through with a 7.958-second run on a 7.95 dial and a .054 reaction time. Runner-up Cadan Richardson triggered the red light before his 8.69-second pass on a 7.93 dial.
