Glad you are ok!!!!!!!!

Not sure if any of this will help you or not get a handle on what might of happened?

From where we were standing (about 350') it looked like the car, when it left the line came out of the grove ....... Maybe after hitting the wheelie bars?? not sure?

The one thing I can see in the video after watching it many times is when you slow it down, you can clearly see your shift light come on and as soon as it starts to go dim (after you shift) the rear of the car starts to kick out.

Hope it helps?

Hey John, Glad that you are ok! The incident happened right infront of me and my boys and I hate to say it, but it was also the very same spot and lane, where there was a oildown earlier, with a lengthy cleanup. There was still oildry on the side of the track, (even though they blew it towards the retaining wall) outside of the groove. I am not saying that was the cause but it was there. Who knows....

So where do you begin to recap such an epic day of racing...

RENEGADE 10.50...

We had 25 cars vying for 16 spots and when the smoke cleared we had our one and only Mopar, owned by Gene Adamic, in the TI Dyno #1 qualifying spot with a 10.51. Qualifying was extremely tight and filled with many new racers. Semi-Finalists were Chris Hyatt in his stick shifted Chevy II, and Ray Tumbry and his Yenko tribute Nova. The finals came down to two veteran racers, who were both on top of their game today, Ed Domniak with his big block Chevy powered Nickey inspired 1969 Camaro taking the victory over the hemi-powered 1975 Plymouth Duster of Gene Adamic. Ed will also be claiming the Ashtabularacing.com Assassin Cash, as well as E-Z Plate systems winner money for running the E-Z Plate system.

10.50 Bonus Race...

We had a bonus race for the cars that didn't crack the top 16 spots. Runner-up was first time RENEGADE racer, Mike Carroll in his 1968 Camaro. Jim Loveland in his 1990 Chevy S10 claimed the victory in an exciting double breakout match-up.

Shearer-Fab 8.90...

The Shearer-Fab 8.90 racers came out in full force today with 22 cars vying for 16 spots. The Chumley Motorsports #1 Qualifier was the one and only "Chico" in his 1963 Chevy II his our best qualifying pass of the year with an 8.901!!!!! The remainder of the qualifying filled with surprises and a few of our points contenders did not make our 16 car field. Semi-Finalists were Bob Getsy in his stick shift equipped 1957 Chevy and Gary Moore in his nitrous fed 1965 Ford Mustang. The much anticipated finals between Koolray Litz in his turbo-charged 2000 Pontiac Firebird and Jimmy Getsy in his 1964 big block nitrous-fed Chevy Corvette, wasn't to be after all due to Koolrayz cars inability to start in the lanes. Jimmy Getsy ran it out on a single pass with a fine 8.93 to claim the victory. Jimmy also claimed the Ashtabularacing.com Assassin cash for beating the one and only "Chico".

Street Lethal Performance Outlaw Limited Street...

We were blessed with a strong showing of these wild and often unpredictable machines, and after the qualifying dust settled, Keith Sletvold 2002 Mustang took home the Ultratech Racecars #1 Qualifying Award. In his first appearance, Mike Barran and his drag radial 1985 Camaro, was our semi-finalist. The finals came down to Chevy vs Ford, Turbo vs Nitrous, and this time the nitrous-fed 1982 Camaro Z28 of Don Turner out-paced the turbo-charged 2002 Ford Mustang of Keith Sletvold. The crowd and several of the Asphalt Wars drivers and crew members really enjoyed watching these cars make their way down the track.

We would like to thank Thompson Raceway Park and it's crew for providing us with great track surface, and accomodating us.

Special thanks goes out to Thompson's emergency staff who was quickly on the scene of John Cron's accident. John if you need anything we are here to help you, our RENEGADE family will do it's best to help you out in anyway we can. Our prayers are with you, and we are thankful you came out of the mishap ok.

Thank you to all the sponsors, and all the volunteers who helped out on raceday, we received tons of incredible feedback from the fans and racers alike for putting on a good show.

We will be back in action October 8th to decide the 8.90 points Champion, don't miss it!!!

Thank you, it's guys coming together to help each other out in their times of need that make a difference.

as soon as John decides the direction of his car, we have already found John several people willing to give him a hand and get him rebuilt. Mike Brown Customs gave John the heads up of a firebird he has that will help in the rebuild. We will do our best to coordinate the rebuild.

It was nice meeting you Leavinsteven....64 chevelles rule!!! Ok, we may need to let the 65's in as Al's 65 is badass It was nice to meet a bunch of new guys. It was an awesome day. I had to bail a little early as i had my 10 year old son and he wasn't being patient...must get it from his mother.....huge turnout and everyone was fast. I had a tough time in the camaro in 10.50...ran an 11.21 in the first round as my tranny was slipping....evidently a tranny leak crept up on me. Fixed for the second round but ran a 10.33. Oh well. It's amazing to me how deadly some of you guys are....maybe I need to practice more It was nice to be able to get back in time to see 8.90 and OLS. Has anyone every video taped the entire show? It would be cool to even see the guys running in your class. Thanks Tom and Renegade for an awesome day.....will be there on Oct 8th.....
