Divisional Champions Crowned at Trailer Source Thunder on the Mountain

By Ronnie Kohrt

Bandimere Speedway took center-stage for the Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series on Saturday night as the Trailer Source Thunder on the Mountain invaded Morrison, Colorado. 

With a packed house of racers and thousands watching, Bandimere Speedway and the NHRA awarded the famed "Wally" to champions in several categories from Top Alcohol Dragster and Funny Car to the Super Series racing that took the quarter-mile. 

It was a good day for No. 1 qualifiers as No. 1 qualifier Shawn Cowie ripped off low-ET of the meet after low-ET of the meet to eventually win in Top Alcohol Dragster, beating James Stevens in the final round.

No. 1 qualifier in Top Alcohol Funny Car Doug Gordon also set the pace from the start, pulling away from the competition to secure the famed Wally. 

The competition was strong in several of the Super Series categories and in the end, winners taking home wally's included Tony Leonard in Super Comp who rode his .009 light in the finals to the win over Doug Johnson. 

Super Gas winner Jeremy Demers out of Carroll, Iowa took home the trophy in his 2020 Corvette. The better reaction-time won it on a hole shot over Greeley, Colorado's Ray Schoneman. In Super Street, Brian Percival reached the podium in his 1969 Dodge Dart and beat Jonathan Stonecipher, going twenty-eight thousands of a second from a perfect run to capture the wally.

Super Stock was dominated by Tyler Wudarczyk out of Wakarusa, Kansas. Wudarczyk in his 1988 Camaro took stripe at the top end for the win and Stock Eliminator was won by Scott Burton, who runner-up'ed to Wudarczyk in Super Stock.

Kelly Land out of Amarillo, Texas took home the trophy in the split-window Corvette out of Top Sportsman and Morrison, Colorado's Bradley Johnson snagged the win over David Oenes in the final of Top Dragster. Joe Mozeris out of Phoenix, Arizona won Competition Eliminator over Don Thomas out of Amarillo, Texas and in the finals of AFX, Jason Kennedy bested Kurtis Steplowski out of Albuquerque, New Mexico. 

The two-wheeled Sportsman Motorcycle category was won by Morrison, Colorado's Tracy Helmhold and Matt Crist - Bandimere Speedway's Top Performer of 2020 - took home the trophy and wheeled the 1973 Camaro to a win over Kyle Cramsey in the final of Super Rod.
