Saturday started off cold, but when the sun came out the racing got hot. Talking to the drivers the Empire air was the best it has been all year. Cars were running some fast numbers. In the end it was Brandon Iamele driving the “Stiner Bros” entry, taking the win over past Gasser Champion Billy Webb in his 1949 German Ford (Darth Vader?). This race had a do-over because of timing tree issues. In the Mod class it was an all Mopar final, with Reid Ricketson in the “Time Despair” entry taking the win over the 2017 Mod Champion Mike Meeks in the “Schall’s Automotive” entry.
