Race 2 Cecil

Aaron Shipley slides into runner-up spot…………….

 Cecil County Dragway, MD, June 25, 2016 – After our first attempt to race at Cecil County Dragway was foiled by the track having to postpone
the event due to a scheduling conflict with another contracted event to our scheduled date, the 422 Allstars were ready to get things going after a couple of weeks
off from racing after completion of race #1 at Capitol Raceway!

A total of twenty-four teams participated with twenty-three making the first round of eliminations. Multi-time series champ, Kevin Grasson, shook up the troops
with a stunning .000 reaction time to lead qualifying followed by; Aaron Shipley .004, Wayne Pope .012, Craig Balmer .020 and Leo Sekulski
rounding out the top five with a .026 light.

Capitol Raceway winner, John Reed got by Sean Pickett via one of the closes runs of the day nipping Pickett’s 8.953, on an 8.95 index .083 r.t. by .004 of a second
at the finish line with an awesome .004 reaction time. Reed posted a 10.728, 10.65, .004 r.t with the margin of victory M.O.V. being .004! Other stellar runs during first
round were Dave Reitz .002, 10.601, 10.60 to defeat Tony Silipena, who broke out with a 9.428 on his 9.50 index and then Dan Woods stealing the round win from Steve
Shipley with a10.156, 10.15, .018 in his D & W Motorsports Cobra Jet Mustang.

Round number two saw Ed Youmans run right on his 8.85 index with a 8.858, but it looked like John Warehime had it wrapped up by means of a better reaction
time (.077, .109), but pushed his 1967 Chevelle ever so hard breaking out by .001 at 10.049 on his 10.05 index, as they say, “that’s racing!” After the so-called smoke had
cleared from the round two, Dan Woods, Ed Youmans along with Aaron Shipley moved into round three.

Aaron Shipley got by Kevin Grasson, who went way red at -.042, Youmans taking out Austin Powers driving the black 1967 Fairlane that propelled Youmans to the
2015 Allstars title and Woods eliminating the 1965 Chevelle Z16 of Pat McNulty, when he fouled his chances with a -.005 reaction time.

The semifinals saw Woods go out setting up the final match of the event with Ed Youmans and Aaron Shipley facing one another. Youmans garnered topmost spot as
Aaron Shipley went red -.014 handing the automatic win to Youmans. Youmans, 10.028, 8.85, .120 to Shipley’s -.014, 11.039, 11.05 index.

We now have a month prior to our next event which will be held at Old Bridge Township Raceway Park Englishtown, NJ July 24th for the 37th Annual Old

Anthony George Pappas, born July 26, 1987, in Pottstown, PA, was taken from us on May 26, 2016, while doing what he loved: riding.
He is survived by the love of his life, Laurel Blesy; his mother, Theresa Whinery; his sister, Erin Smith; and his nephew, Kaleb Dromie.
Anthony was a beloved boyfriend, son, brother, uncle, nephew and cousin. Anthony brought his passion for fixing cars to his work
every day. When he wasn’t at work, he was working on race cars at 422 Motorsports, helping a fellow friend, or working on his own toys.
Anthony’s smile would light up the room, his laugh was contagious, he would do anything for anyone, and he was adored by all that have
met him. We celebrate the beauty and the many ways he touched the lives of those who knew and loved him. May your presence
be with us all and may your laughter echo throughout Heaven for all of eternity.
