Winners crowned at Gardermoen Drag Challenge
After four days of great racing it was celebration time for the winners of the Summit Racing EDRS Series categories at Gardermoen Raceway. In many classes the racing was exciting with several surprises and in some cases the reaction times were decisive.
After three days of bright sunshine with high temperatures, it was a bit cooler on race day at Gardermoen’s 2019 Drag Challenge. The track crew did an excellent job again in preparing a great track under all conditions. Several track records were reset and with 11 qualifying runs in three days in almost all categories (and six in Pro Modified), nobody could complain about lack of track time.
In Pro Modified Michael Gullqvist was the number one qualifier with a great 5.91 seconds, with Jan Ericsson in second position with 5.93 seconds. But Gullqvist had to withdraw from eliminations after he suffered rear axle damage in qualifying. Qualifying ended even worse for Olof Andersson as the Swedish driver went into the sand trap at the end of the track and severely damaged his orange Chevy.
