Mother Nature waited until after the fans were satisfied with a classic Commerce vs. Banks County show on the quarter-mile before she rained on Atlanta Dragway’s parade, at the 2008 Night of Fire event Saturday.
The ever-changing weather precipitated a challenge for all racers, dial adjustment being the main issue, when predicting elapsed times throughout unpredictable conditions.
In the 13-17 Junior Dragster Category, both 16-year old Brett Bowman of Homer and 15-year old Taylor Ramsey of Commerce struggled with matching their dial-ins, Bowman running an 8.05 on an 8.00, and Ramsey an 8.02 on a 7.99.
