    Norwalk, Ohio - Unseasonable wet weather made the"Cavalcade of Stars" NHRA Regional event a challenge for all competitors to read the track. As a result of the rain, the Top Alcohol Dragster class only got one qualifying pass thus limiting the amount of data collected. But, Duane Shields in the PEAK A/Fuel dragster made the best of it and qualified fourth with a 5.48 at 264 MPH during the exciting one shot qualifying session.

    In round one, Duane faced Jared Dreher who qualified fifth with a 5.53 at 242 MPH. As the lights came down, Dreher got an advantage off the starting line. Other than the slight lead, it was a fairly even race all the way down the track with Dreher tripping the win light with a 5.43 at 264 MPH to Duane's close 5.45 at 270 MPH. “We didn’t give it enough power and it stuck the tires. The track was tight and because we only got one qualifying pass before eliminations we just didn’t have much to work with” Duane said.

    The PEAK Team returns to Norwalk, June 22-25 for the Summit Racing Equipment Nationals. Duane would like to thank PEAK Antifreeze and Motor Oil, Final Charge, Blue Def, NGK, GRP and Brad Anderson Enterprises.
