ERP gets races in before rainy weather arrives


Racing at Eddyville Raceway Park was able to be held Saturday despite the threat of rain. Due to the threat of the rain, races started early.
In the Jr. Dragster novice class, Caleb VanSant from Pella faced off against Matthew German from Lynnville. German with the slower dial-in left first with VanSant having a 4.25-second wait before he could leave the line and start chasing down German. At the finish line, German ran closer to his dial-in, but a .004 reaction time was enough for VanSant to claim the win.
In the Novice consi class, Brooke Baarda from Sully went against Tyler Livingston from Des Moines. Livingston ran right on his dial-in and Baarda broke out at the finish line, but it didn't matter as Livingston had already red-lighted giving the win to Baarda.
Dakota Allison from Des Moines won the Jr. Dragster class over Sean Flanery from Adel with a better reaction time and Chase VanSant from Pella won the Jr. Dragster Consi class over Wayne Briggs III from Danville.
In the Jr. Allstar Run-off, it was brother versus brother as Celeb VanSant faced off against older brother Chase. The race was over on the starting line as Chase left the starting line by .007 too soon and tripped the red light giving the win and bragging right to Celeb.
In the Sportsman class, Denis Currier from Leighton in his 1st race of the season went against Kole Vogel from Leon. Both drivers dialed 7.50 making it a heads up race. Currier had a .016 light and ran .016 off his dial-in, but wasn't needed as Vogel left too soon by just .003 and tripped the red light, giving Currier his first win of the season.
In the Pro class, Derek Hiatt from Des Moines went against Bill Gissible from Carlisle. Hiatt got the win as Gissible tripped the red light.
