Monday, 26 September 2022

MARTIN, Mich. — Four racers — Wes May, Adam Green, Chris Klein and Braden Peters — went home as winners of Gamblers races at the International Hot Rod Association (IHRA) Division 5 (Thunder) Summit Team Finals at US 131 Motorsports Park.

May, a Greentown, Ind., driver, became the winner of the Box gamblers race when his final-round opponent Jeff Burdess was too anxious to get started. May eased into a .114 reaction time after Burdess, a Hemlock, Mich., racer, triggered the light by a half-second.

It was all a formality as Pena had gotten off the line -.004 too quick. Pena from Palos Park, Ill., went on down the track in 8.484 seconds at 78.98 mph.
