Many of the top drivers from MN now are traveling to the Waterford Speedbowl in Waterford (CT) for the INEX Legends National Championship weekend October 7th and 8th.
The Hornets Champion for the second year in a row is Justin Schelitzche #14 from Lester Prairie (MN). He had an incredible season scoring four wins and winning the title by 11 points over #36 Brandon Olson.
This final race was not an easy one for Schelitzche, he was leading the race when he got caught up in some lapped traffic and damaged his suspension, the car was not able to finish the race but due to his large point lead coming into the final night of racing, Schelitzche still won the Championship.
Brandon Plekkenpol #55 crossed the finish line first but was disqualified in post race tech inspection so #41 Ashley Bell was awarded the win, it was her second feature win of 2016. Alex Vincent #36 finished second, Brandon Olson #36 third Michael Wachs Jr #3 fourth and #7 Ridge Oien fifth.
The Bandolero's Champion was #3 Luke Allen from Chanhassen (MN) he clean swept the two features scoring his 6th and 7th wins of the season at Elko Speedway. Lennon Watkins #48 finished second in points, Christopher Konop #88 was third, #99 Max Mabee fourth and #01 Zachary Konop was fifth in season ending points.
Eleven time National Jet Car Champion Doug Rose and his Green Mamba Jet Car thrilled the packed crowd with his car melting exhibition. The Demolition Devil performed three stunts: Jumping his car nearly 100 feet into a parked minivan, a flame suit demonstration and a steel wall crash driving a convertible. The annual Burnout contest was well received as the winner actually burned a tire off his vehicle in the process. The Spectator drags got the crowd to its feet as two drivers crashed together coming out of turn number four and both cars went up into the wall. The Drifters did an amazing show of precision driving skill and the School Bus races saw a huge rollover on the final lap. The Figure 8 trailer race was crazy as usual with drivers smashing into each other trying to knock the trailer off the other vehicle. Seth Withers was crowned the winner with Justin Schelitzche getting the prize for best appearing.
