Litchfield drag racer Corey Wood got off to a pretty good start in the month of May as he won the Super Pro class at Jeffers Motorsports Park in Sikeston, MO, on Saturday, May 1.
With the help of Roger Burdell in the pits, Wood piloted his Chevy Vega to victory lane in one class and also made it down to five cars in the Pro class as well.
While Wood was in Missouri, two other Litchfield racers were also competing in Illinois and Ohio.
On April 30 through May 2, Rich Komor raced in the Working Man’s $10 Grands at Kil-Kare Raceway on in Xenia, OH, which drew over 500 entries. Komor was one of 71 racers to split almost $7,000 in prize money on April 30, after cold weather forced the cancellation of the event in the third round.
In Saturday’s race on May 1, Komor made it all the way to the semifinals before bowing out, a major bonus after Sunday’s race didn’t yield as good of results as the first two days.
On May 2 in Havana, Timothy Hearn ran the junior dragster race at Central Illinois Dragway. Hearn would be killer on the clock in the first three rounds, posting reaction times of .010, .046 and .012 on the starting line in his first three races.
Unfortunately, his fourth race he’d be a little too quick, going red on the tree to end his day.
