Ignition failure dampens Adelaide event for Reed

This article brought to you by:


If Drag Racing isn’t fighting against the rain it’s a battle against the heat & when the temps hit the high 30’s this past weekend, that’s exactly what the teams had to do @ Adelaide International Raceway.


Top Alcohol had 9 cars enter for a 8 car field going into eliminations.
Qualifying was hot & tough. Steve got the Allstar Batteries funnycar out there clocking a 5.05 ET over the 1000’ line.  For session 2 & 3 Steve laid down two 4 second passes, 4.96 @ 218mph & 4.92 @ 222mph which at the end of qualifying the Reed team were in position #2.

Round 1 of eliminations paired up NT’s Yak against Reed, this time the Reed funnycar took the win lights but no official 1000’ time was recorded. They then advanced into round 2 meeting Wayne Newby.
Unfortunately,  before half track the ignition failed and shut down the Reed funnycar, allowing Newby to slide past and on into the finals.
After round 3 of the championship series, Steve is well in the running, now 2nd with 6 rounds to go in the 2013 season. 2013 is going to be Reed Racing’s year.

Welcome aboard Royal Wolf & Thank You also to all our crew, family & associate sponsors.
