October 19th Arroyo Seco 10-21-03
ARROYO SECO Oct. 19th 3 Oil Downs and the timing lights getting run over made it a long day at the races- but there was some exciting racing going on - especially in the Points races. Arroyo Seco points to come.
SDRA POINTS- "It was down the Final Round of the last Race of the season, and..." Joe Alvarado was 30 points down from his cousin JR Mijares going into this race. Since this was a double points race Joe had to go 3 more rounds than JR Mijares did. Well, Alvarado went 2 rounds more than Mijares and made it to the finals where he could win the race and the SDRA PRO points championship. Unfortunately we have to wait to find out who's going to win this since the final round could'nt be run. Then to add to the Points race excitement, Eddie Cordero and Ray Villareal are still tied for Mod Points! Ray had to go just one more round than Eddie and he did it! So it ended up being a tie! (Both of them lost to Rodney Ward) Get the official low down at the SDRA wabsite - www.SDRA.biz
It was Joe Alvarado in his new Don Davis Dragster vs. Andy Avila with the wicked launching pink RGB Chevelle in the Pro Final. Rodney Ward takes the Mod class while father Ward took the street class in the Killer Corsica!
Mod Finals - Rodney Ward took out both of the SDRA Mod points leaders on his way to the finals. This guy is tough!
Motorcyle Finals - 19 bikes! The biggest bike showing I've ever seen at Arroyo Seco. KC Parks from Alamagordo took the motorcylce class over Kevin Dieter. This was Kevin's his first time out! Kevin was driving a 2003 Kawasaki zzr1200 and Bion Bell took 3rd.
Pro Semis Joe Alvarado
Semis John Walls was in his winning groove, but a .499 light
ended his day against Andy Avila in the semis.
KC Parks from Alamagordo in Motorcycle.
Kim "Kim Possible" Holliday in her 72 Chevelle won the Dash for Cash running a perfect 16.550 on a 16.55 dial!
Leyba won the Reaction Time Contest with a .503 barely beating
out Harry Groesel's .504 light. Tony won a free entry to the next race.
Pretty good considering he just retired.
