Here are the updated National Points with the Wilkesboro records added.

Ryan extended his lead, three way points tie with Lou and the Jacks, and the Kentucky Poser and Norm Foster climbed a couple spots.

Come to Knoxville, TN 16-17 August for three more opportunities to climb the ladder! :D

POINTS CORRECTION!!!

Thanks for catching my mistake Lou. :wink:

If there are two races on the same day you only get points for one race, not both. It's 5 points per DAY of racing.
I had mistakenly given everyone 5 points for every race, so the folks racing at Wilkesboro with double races each day had 5-10 too many points.

Corrected points below. If you click on the image it should open it up larger.

We had a great weekend of racing down in the Holler at Knoxville Dragway this weekend!

Three races were contested and when the smoke cleared it was Jackie Everhardt III that came out on top as our new National Points leader!!

At the end of Friday night his Dad, Jack Everhardt Jr. was tied with Ryan Covalt for the points lead.

It wasn't until the finish of the final race on Saturday when Norm Foster broke out with 8.27 on his 8.28 dial to give Jackie the win that he inched ahead to take the lead.

We had several new faces with a total of 5 Rookies making passes this weekend as well!

Isaiah Bruner jumped into the Rookie of the Year lead, winning three rounds and even putting Rodney Hargis on the trailer at his home track.
Mistie Bruner jumped into another one of the Bruner Slanted Dakotas to make a few passes and win a round on Saturday to take the #2 spot.
Father and son Brad and Brett Padgett brought their recently completed White Rat '63 Dart up from Rome, GA to join in on the fun. Each of them won a round as well.
CJ Simmons wrestled his Dad and older brother Chase out of the keys to the GodsRods Duster II to join the fun. He's looking forward to Clay City before he ships out to Army Basic Training in October.

The next race of the season is at Clay City, KY 6-8 September. Look for an official Roll Call and make plans to "Come out and Run with the Slants!!"

Rolling into Clay City here is where the Top 5 racers sit:

Jack Everhardt III and Jack Everhardt Jr. both have 40 attendance points and have won rounds at 5 events.
Ryan Covalt only has 15 attendance points and has won rounds at 4 events.
Ron Hamby only has 20 attendance points and has won rounds at 5 events.
Lou Madsen has 30 attendance points and has won rounds at 4 events.

Attendance points are capped at 60 for the season and you count round win points for your top 5 events only.
You also get 20 bonus points for setting a record.

Of the Top 5, only Ron Hamby remains to set a record this season and he has a plan to do it.

Ron and both Jacks will start to give up round points at Clay City.

Thanks for the fun rundown, Rob. Congrats to all racers at Knoxville for a fun time and round wins for most (all?) racers. Nice to see some lead changes and several rookies in the mix!

Lou

My money is on Ryan again this year.


Jack Everhardt Jr. busted me out on this comment during the Knoxville race. He tied Ryan Friday night and then climbed ahead Saturday by 5 points. Meanwhile, Jack III took the overall lead.

I ain't gonna crawfish and change my bet, but I would love for one of "The Jacks" to win the Championship. Even better would be a final race father-son tie breaker!!

In case of a tie for the number one position only, if both contestants are present at the final race, we will try to run a single round tie breaker (dial-in) race for the number one position.

As “The Jacks” are scheming their Slant 6 Domination down in Elizabethton,… Here are my thoughts on the rest of the season…
(I haven’t added a lot of color commentary this year [to many people’s relief, I’m sure], so I’ll pontificate a little now – Just skip ahead… :wink: )

Points and Performance Index are what determine the Championship.

Points are awarded by winning rounds, attending races and setting records (one per season).

The Jacks have the points lead going into Clay City, but they will have to win at least two rounds to add points (replacing a one rounder with a 2+ rounder).

Ryan has one more event to add round wins before he starts to give up points to the “Over 5 Rule”. He also has the best Performance Index so far.

They have all set records and will be receiving the same attendance points, so those parts are the same… Or are they…?

The Jacks will max out on attendance points at the Mason-Dixon race in October, which is typically the last race of the season… Ryan will still have points to gain going into…
Tulsa Time!!

(Y’all remember a couple years back when the Championship was real close & that doggone Kentucky Poser stirred the pot a little with his Tulsa Time post, don’t ya?)
viewtopic.php?f=10&t=60327

Well,… It’ll be Tulsa Time again the first week of November after the dust and tire smoke have settled from the Mason-Dixon race and folks gotta decide on making that long tow to finish up the season…

Who will be in the lead after Mason-Dixon? Will Ryan or The Jacks decide to head West for their fame and fortune..?

Will Ron Hamby and/or Lou Madsen make a push for the Championship?

Stay tuned right here to find out!

We had some great racing, great weather and great comradery at Clay City, KY this weekend for the 21st Annual Slant 6 race.

Rodney Hargis was a force to be reckoned with as he won both races and put himself in contention for his 4th National Championship.

Ryan Covalt was cutting lights, winning rounds and dropping his ETs for more records. He got that light blue Valiant into the 6s in the 1/8 mile and re-set the ¼ mile record as well. With his Semi-Finalist and Runner-Up finishes he climbed back to the top of the leader board too!

Jackie Everhardt III won two rounds to hold on to the #2 spot just one round ahead of his Dad, Jackie Everhardt Jr. who also won two rounds to land in the #3 spot.

The top 3 racers all gave up one round to the “Over 5 Rule” where only their best 5 races are counted.

Isaiah Bruner was running the Funny Truck and won another round to give himself an even stronger lead as Rookie of the Year.

First time Slant 6 racer Austin Houpt drove Rick Covalt’s beautiful Ram truck down from PA and was seen making lots of practice rounds Friday night. He had a great time and will surely be at the Covalt’s home track at Mason-Dixon next month to do it again.

I spoke to Rodney late Sunday and he shared with me that the two races this weekend were his 29th and 30th event wins! He also said he would be bringing his broom to Mason-Dixon for another clean sweep!

So, if you want to see some great racing action and a close competition for the National Championship, make plans to be at Mason-Dixon Dragway 12-13 October!
