RACE 1 MIR

YOUMANS Scores win at first ALLSTAR event of 2015
Pappas claims runner-up spot…………………………………….

Maryland International Raceway April 18/19, 2015 – The weather has finally broken and the 422 Allstars were out in force after
battling the extremely harsh winter again ready to battle one another at race number one held at MIR. Of course, the teams are all
gunning for three time series champion, Kevin Grasson, who claimed his third consecutive title in 2014!

The 422 Allstars officials worked diligently over the winter months speaking to track operators planning race dates for the 2015
race season. After all was said and done, we once again will conduct (9) nine points earning events, plus the non-points
“Flashback Friday” event run at Beaver Springs Dragway on August 7th. Incidentally, race number 5 is the next day (8/8/15), also at
BSD. The schedule will feature two events at Maryland International Raceway and two at Capitol Raceway, both tracks being in Maryland.
What has changed is the second Capitol event will now move to the end of the season and points finale on October 17th. In 2014, the
newly added race at Pittsburgh Raceway Park is now slated to be held on Saturday, September 26th, which is the same weekend as
last year. Also on the schedule is Maple Grove Raceway, Raceway Park (Englishtown), U.S. 13, which has switched organizations and
is now under IHRA ruling. Anyway, we have a full schedule and tried as best as possible to afford several weeks between each points
earning event.

The MIR event started well, but there was call for rain, which thankfully held off and able to get qualifying in on Saturday and run
eliminations on Sunday. When the smoke had cleared, 2011 Allstars Champion denied teammate, Anthony Pappas the win. Youmans
who usually chauffeurs the 1964 Comet of Dave Powers took the win driving the 422 Motorsports 1967 Fairlane. A black beauty running
a single carburetor powered FE with a C4 automatic transmission. Youmans was the picture of consistency in the 10.1’s throughout
the weekend and clobbered the tree in the final with a perfect .000 reaction time posting a 10.115 elapsed time on his 10.05 index.
Pappas driving “Big Blue” pushed the tree in the final matchup with a too quick -.016, 10.458 on a 10.35 index.

The semi-finals saw Pappas with the bye and Youmans taking out Nick Lillie in his 1964 Galaxie. In round number three, Youmans
defeated Dave Collett driving his Ray Barton Racing Hemi 1964 Plymouth Savoy. For those who have not heard, Dave sold his Hemi
1968 “Sox and Martin” inspired Barracuda and is building a 1968 Dodge Dart for competition in NHRA SS/AH. On his side of the ladder,
Pappas got a round win over Tom Sneden via a better reaction time .093 to .198.

Things started getting serious in round two when Anthony Pappas met up with Cliff Sebring. Sebring left first with a .106 r.t, running
an 11.563 elapsed time on his 11.50 dial-in index, while Pappas recorded a .071, 10.438 on a 10.35 index moving him into the next
round. Ed Youmans got the win over new to the series Tom Rakowski. Rakowski who is used to running with a throttle stop, trans-brake
and delay box had everything disconnected per the Allstars’ rules, but gave it up at the start with a .239 reaction allowing Youmans to
move to round three.

Round one pitted Youmans against Bob Fort, Jr. in the “Jersey Duke II” and at the tree it looked like Fort had things wrapped up for
the win clicking off an awesome .003 reaction time, but slowed on his 9.60 index to a 9.874 elapsed time. Youmans dispatched a .042,
10.188 pass on his 10.05 index taking the stripe. Fort was on the tree qualifying with a .001 second reaction time, which tied Tom
Sneden’s .001, but Gary Nies nailed the top spot with a triple .000! Interestingly, the top six qualifying positions
were all Mopars with automatic transmissions yet it was an all Ford semi final.

Noticeably absent were the “Jersey Boys”; Ciro Magione, who passed away in February, plus Chet Cook who is dealing with health
issues.  Our prayers and thoughts for a quick recovery go out to Chet and of course to Ciro’s family!  -- George Case

Oaks, PA.  Wanna relive the factory Super Stock wars of the 60’s. The 422 All Star Nostalgia Super Stock Series
will allow fans to do just that. All 60’s big blocks, all lettered, dual quads, all motor, all cool,  no slicks on the wrong
end of the car, no cars that came to America on a boat. Just plain old classic Detroit Iron
with open exhausts and not a prayer of ever being driven on the street.

The show consists of 427 Fords and Chevy’s in addition to Chrysler Hemi and wedge big blocks with a dose of
AMC  and Pontiac big block power. Many original factory drivers and true legends of the sport who are willing to
talk with fans and relive the “Golden Age of Drag Racing”. A one day show that will move quickly on the track
schedule with minimal breakdowns and a .400 Sportsman tree that can reduce or eliminate red lights.
