It turned out to be a memorable weekend at Summit Motorsports Park for the only driver to compete in all nine of the ADRL’s new SuperCar Showdown (SCS) series so far this year, as Chris Holbrook drove his supercharged 2012 Cobra Jet Mustang to new class records and won the final round Sep. 29, at the ADRL Summit Racing Equipment Ohio Drags VI presented by Mickey Thompson.
Holbrook set the stage with a then-record 5.671 pass at a record 121.43 mph in the opening round of qualifying, and then lowered the ET in round two with a 5.667 at 121.34 that also established him as the top qualifier and reset both ends of the official SCS class records.
“We’re constantly tweaking on these things and we found something that seems to work this time,” the Redford, MI, racer said of the factory-stock hot rods that make up the class. “There’s not a lot we really can do to them, but we never stop looking.”
Holbrook remained consistent in eliminations, posting wheelstanding wins of 5.694 at 121.38 over Rick Rodgers, 5.670 at 121.79 against Blaine Ramey in the semis, and 5.674 at a new record 121.88 mph over Jimmy Ronzello in the final round.
“It was fun to have a few cars out here this weekend,” Holbrook said, referring to the sometimes very short fields the class attracts as it establishes itself among the ADRL’s traditional outlaw doorslammers and motorcycles. “I wish the Camaros would hurry up and get out here, too. Then we could really have a race.”
