Dane starts the season off with a win.
Only one run in qualifying due to the bad weather Saturday and a crash on Sunday.
Only Bill MacDonald got down the track in the only run. He went his usual mid seven. Dane was off the gas early as was Greg Maclean who was back for the first time in a couple years. He has a new bullet in the altered in hopes of mid 6's or quicker.
MacDonald Altered 7.47
Greg had issues again in round one. He has a new powerplant in the car which makes way more power and managing it is a big task.
Bill went right down the track and won with a 7.53 and was going to the final
Dane took on John Evans who was struggling with Transmission issues. John left before the tree was activated while Dane was loose and headed toward the wall. He had a few issues and had to thrash in the pits before the final. Without a represetative run on the weekend he would be going to the final blind.
Dane and the 'Just for Fun' racing team got their car ready for the final but also were going in blind as they had no full run. He dialed a conservative 6.50 While Bill dialed a 7.40. Dane had a slight starting line advantage (.023) and won the race passing Bill around 900 feet. He ran a very good 6.55 at 191 to defeat Wild Bill's 7.498/176.

We are just 10 days away from race one in the seventh season for the NW Outlaws. There are a few new cars coming out in the series according to rumour and a racer or two returning after a year or two away from the series. Leo Grocock and son in law Rob Phippen will be debuting a new ride this year. This is a car that hasn't been down the track in over seven years.
Ken Rempel debuted this car over 15 years ago and ran in TAD for a few seasons. Unfortunately Ken died a few years ago.
But his wife Georgia kept the car in hopes someone local may buy it and bring it back out. Leo had been a crew guy for Ken and it is fitting he is the one who now has the car. It was the last or one of the last cars Bob Meyer ever built for TAD competition and it was state of the art and still is state of the art. It has very few runs on the car and almost looks brand new. Steve Horne will run the series in his blown Willy's Pro Mod. Rumor has it that Dave O'Hara may bring out his blown altered as well.
has new power in his Top Dragster. The power in the car is approaching
2000hp and is capable of low 6's. Of course Dane Lachelt and the Just
for Fun team will be returning as well as Marty Zazula, John Evans,
and defending champion Quentin Chambers and his brother Kevin. Wild
Bill Macdonald should be returning as well, hopefully running low
7's this year. Norm Mitchell is expected to compete and challenge
for the title as well. Will we a few part timers return this year?
Steve Kendall and Jim Attwell hopefully make a few stops.

Merry Christmas and Happy holidays
We have a tentative schedule for the 2017 season.
I would like to have one race as a double header. I would like input from the racers. My preferance is the July date or the September finale date. What do you guys think? Email me from this link. Contact series organizer .
