Race 5 of the BJRE SST Series is now in the books with one more event to go in 2013. 32 cars qualified Saturday as Jim Butcher got the top spot and nabbed the Jenkins Welding & Fab "Top gun" #1 Qualifier award, plus the gamblers ET award. Mike Derrick picked up the gamblers RT award. As you see in the qualifying field the top 16 was really tight. Bill Jackson won the Nitro Joe's Bounty Hunter award beating race 4 winner Mike Price in Rd 1. Speaking of Rd 1, Rich Pica would be the first pair out and on that run he would win the Joy Smith motorsports "Best Winning Package" award of the event, then go on and win the event over a red lighting Rob Foss in the finals. The last BJRE SST Series event of 2013 is October 12, should be exciting as Allen Smith is still in the lead but Matt Dadas is closing the gap. Dank Funk is in 3rd, Mike Price is in 4th and Rod Rudrick rounds out the top 5.
Also I had contacted ESPN about our racing series but didn't know they would send the blimp for overhead coverage, lol
