Brenda’s article on Stock Eliminator Driver, Bobby Devine was published in the August 28th issue of National Dragster. This is a feel good story and Bobby was excited for his story to be told. An inspiration to many drivers, Bobby’s story is heartfelt and includes how he came to own his car thru the contributions of numerous racers. His story shows what the sport is really about. Brenda is currently working on another article which should be submitted in the coming weeks.

New England Dragway
With Denver, Brainerd, Topeka and Atlanta cancelled, the race rig headed to New Hampshire to capitalize on Bill’s preplanned vacation time. Since Brenda grew up in NH, it was a great opportunity to visit family, eat lobster, and race.
Arriving in New England, the rig headed north to spend a
few days in Freeport, Maine to enjoy the weather and
wonderful food. After Bill ate his weight in lobsters and
steamers, the rig headed to New England Dragway (NED)
to compete in the Divisional and SportsNationals. As a
teenager, Brenda worked in the tower at NED and watched
her Dad race. Several friends came to the track, along with
Brenda’s Dad. Her Dad was looking forward to watching the Super Stocker run, unfortunately extremely high oil pressure kept the car from competing. Brenda went several rounds at the Divisional race in Stock and lost first round in the SportsNationals. Plans to hit the Bowling Green race on the way home were cancelled due to the hurricane forecast and a broken Super Stocker.
Dallas Double Divisional
The Dallas Double Divisional saw more round wins in Stock and chassis challenges in the Super Stocker. Affectionately named “the problem child”, since putting in the powerful Line motor, a few
chassis challenges continue to plague the car. With the help of Jason Line, the car has a set up to help eliminate tire spin off the line allowing the car to complete the season. Once the season is over, the issue will be addressed; and fixed.
The rescheduled Southern Nationals held at the rescheduled Gator Nationals secured a final round finish for Brenda in Stock. Unfortunately, at the start of Sportsman final rounds, the rain came, in buckets. The drivers in each class were given the choice of where to complete their final. Stock will be completed at the Houston National event later this month. This is the second final round for the Stocker at the Gator Nationals. Brenda secured the Stock runner-up at the 2006 event.
