Friday 8/8 Sho & Go at the Bowl Traffic Light Showdown Results
Waterford, CT (August 8, 2014) – The popular Spectator Drag Racing and Car Cruise Show, Sho & Go at the Bowl, went with a traffic light theme tonight. Two awards were up for grabs in the Car Cruise Show on our Midway and four classes of Spectator Drag Racing showcased the on-track action part of the event.
Before the single round elimination Spectator Drag Racing got under way focus shifted to the popular midway Car Cruise Show, where the fans voted on the winners. A fan vote was cast for two Best in Show awards. It was Bill Bradham with his 1955 Ford Crown Vic Pick-up and Bill Steafather with his 1960 Studebaker Hawk GT earning the fan votes for Best in Show.
Four classes of bracket drag racing featured the regular Street, Competition and Bike Classes plus a special Traffic Light Showdown open to all competitors. The Street Class Eliminator with a rematch of last week saw current point leader Matt Viscione of New London and Ryan Flanders of Lebanon in the final round with Viscione in his 2007 Chevy Cobalt earning the win. In the Competition Class Eliminator match up Rick Taylor of Uncasville was paired against Gerry Radacsi of Wallingford with Radacsi earning the win in his 1962 Corvette. The Bike Class Eliminator had Jayson Barba against Rookie Max Carter, it was Carter in his Jr. Dragster earning his first career Sho & Go win. In the Traffic Light Shootout, all three classes were running together with only one winner. The final round paired Bike Class competitor Ron Hoyle of Baltic on his 2000 Polaris 600 snowmobile against Speedbowl legend Phil Rondeau of Baltic in his 1974 Competition Class Chevy Vega.
