Check out some additional Canadian racer photo highlights from last weekend’s very successful NHRA Lordco BC Nationals at Mission…
Red Deer’s Byron Setters lined up opposite his daughter Caitlin in Round 2 of Super Stock – with Caitlin scoring the victory.
West coast T/D hitter Dan Provost couldn’t lose in the ‘Shootout’ on Saturday in his Top Dragster, but lost first round Sunday — but then bounced back to win in Super Pro!
The Bull” hoofed it out from Manitoba to the West Coast for the second time in TAD, and driver Gord Gingles wheeled it to a 5.33 / 271 qualifying blast, before going up in smoke in the second round.
Rick Pike had his old school ’56 Chevy in fine wheel standing form!
Two Western hitters met up in the first round of Super Comp, with Andy Scheu leaving uncharacteristically early to give the win to Mike Shannon, who lost in the second round.
Peter Ash brought his cool Challenger DragPak over from Victoria to race in Stock. He qualified mid-pack at .70-under, and lost in Round 2.
In Friday’s S/G time trials, Surrey’s Glen Iggulden got very loose on the launch, making a great save to just graze the Christmas Tree concrete base. Damage to the car was minimal, and he was back racing on Saturday.
Mike Williams came out from Tilley, AB to qualify #1 in Top Sportsman with a 6.90 at 199 mph. He had the bye in Round 1, but lost a very close one, by .009 seconds, in Round 2.
Greg Sereda from Spruce Grove AB had a tough event with some serious and expensive mechanical failures on his single qualifying run. His son Shelby ( 17) will soon licence in the car.
Bruce Perkin of Maple Ridge had things going in Comp – using some good luck to advance all the way to the final round before being beaten.
Paul Glandon qualified low at 6.24 in WDRL Pro Mod, but couldn’t get around Ken Sihota’s strong 10.5 Firebird in Round 1 (top)
Kerry Stone from Lake Country, BC ran 6.27 in WDRL Pro Mod qualifying, but fell off that pace in Round 1 and lost to Joe Delehay.
