It was a scorcher of an afternoon as the Quick 8 program returned to Atco Raceway with a wicked group of blown cars, whether it was in the twin turbo or supercharger variety, there was some serious boostin' goin on! The crowd was treat to a final round with the return of the South Jersey boys for a threepeat, Joe Newsham of J&E Performance and Tommy Kasper. Joe's car has some serious power this year, often carrying the front tires to the 1/8th mile before they come down. Tommy has some power too, his Proline powered Mustang can haul some serious ass as well. Both cars left hard in the final, but Joe had to do some serious driving as his car skated around down track. He had no choice but to get out of it, and Tommy took home the win for the day with a 6.91 @ 210mph pass. Congratulations to Christy & Kasper Racing!

8.50 Index was tough today, the weather bringing on some tuning nightmares for all teams involved. Most of the racers were a few hundreths off of their normal pace, creeping closer to an 8.50 flat as the day went on. TJ Kasper, the reigning champ, had his old man and crew chief Tommy hard at work between rounds of 8.50 and also Outlaw 10.5 rounds, but the Kaspers were able to make it all the way to yet another final round. Facing them was 'Shake n Bake' Tommy Romeo, back in action after some engine troubles earlier in the season. Tommy got TJ good on the tree, a rare thing to see, and that holeshot advantage propelled Tommy to his first win of the Season. Tommy ran an 8.597 to TJ's 8.581, but the .012 reaction time to TJ's .034 is what got him the trip to the winner's circle. Check out the photos of Tommy Romeo to see the special edition Shake 'n Bake box he has ;).
