On a nice mid-August afternoon, All Star Racing held its final race of the season at Lebanon Valley. Forty-five stock and super stock class racers showed up to do battle. Round 3 began with a pair of Chevy S-10 pickups; Marc LaBrecque’s GT/TC 2000 entry versus Jay Bruneau’s SS/TA entry subbing for his dad Bob. Bruneau’s 9.01 (8.98 dial) caught LaBrecque’s game 10.22 (10.23) breakout pass. Bob Moran’s big block ’69 Camaro A/SA would defeat Tim Whitehead’s J/SA ’86 Firebird 9.98 to 11.76 with a red light start from Whitehead. Eric Cabral’s 11.39 (11.35) from his G/SA ’69 Nova defeated Cory Menard’s 10.74 from his SS/KA ’65 Chevelle. In a double break-out affair, DJ Pires’ 11.33 (11.35) from his G/SA ’72 Nova would hold off Frank Tantillo’s 10.89 (10.92) from his B/SA ’95 Camaro. Bob Broadbent and his ’69 A/S Camaro would defeat Todd Bednaz’s D/S ’68 Camaro 10.10 (10.09) to a break-out 10.65 (10.69) pass. Billy Pires used his 12.58 (12.56) from his N/SA ’83 Malibu Wagon to hold off TJ Boucher’s dead-on 9.74 from his GT/GA ’97 Firehawk.

Quarterfinal action started with Moran defeating Cabral 9.99 (9.98) to a break-out 11.32 (11.34). Broadbent would use a dead-on 10.08 from his Camaro to defeat Billy Pires’ 12.60 (12.55). Jay Bruneau’s 8.97 (8.99) defeated DJ Pires’ 11.26 (11.29) in another double breakout race.

Semi-finals saw Bruneau with the bye. Moran’s 10.02 (10.00) would get by Broadbent’s dial matching 10.06 effort. The stage was set for the final as Jay Bruneau rand dead on 8.950 to defeat Bob Moran’s red light 9.96 (10.00) effort. This was Jay Bruneau’s first ASRA victory of his young drag racing career.
