Perry Reynolds kicked off the Inaugural Doorslammer Pot O' Gold presented by Summit Racing Equipment with the shootout win from his ticket-printing 4.9-sec Dodge Avenger. Jonathon McCandless turned it one thou red in the finals in the World Infamous Volare station wagon.
Cory Gulitti expertly wheeled the McCarty Auto Parts family S-10 to the first main event win of the weekend at the Doorslammer Pot O' Gold presented by Summit Racing Equipment. Gulitti held off the always tough Dustin Smiley in the finals. Amanda Manuel, who carried two entries deep into the race, and Bobby Love were the semifinalists.
Kevin Brannon has added a Doorslammer Pot O' Gold presented by Summit Racing Equipment $20K Eagle Trophy to his Loose Rocker resume (which is just a tiny part of a rather storied career!) to go along with his St. Patrick's Classic $10K win in his dragster years ago. Brannon won a barn burner over first time Loose Rocker finalist, John Engleman, by just .005. Laura Bailey and Chris McGuire were the semifinalists.
Cory Gulitti bookended an incredible all-star show at the Doorslammer Pot O' Gold presented by Summit Racing Equipment by earning twin 10K Eagle Trophies. The 10K Warmup race was his first win in a doorcar, but it only took him a day to add number two, with the 10K Finale victory. Gulitti stopped Randy Biddle, Jr. in the finals, who footbraked his way there! 20K winner Kevin Brannon was the lone semifinalist in the 10K Finale.
