Under beautiful blue skies and autumn like weather, the final race of the 2020 ASRA season was completed. Thirty-eight dedicated class racers showed up to do battle. Beginning with the third round, Chirs Butcher’s dial matching 10.79 from his H/SA ’83 Camaro edged Gregg Sutherland’s 9.92 (9.91) effort from his SS/GA ’66 Nova. Todd Bednaz used a 10.53 (10.52) pass from his C/S ’68 Camaro to defeat Marc LaBreque’s break-out 9.85 (9.86) from his GT/TB 2001 S-10. Jim Whitehead ran a 10.74 (10.73) from his C/SA ’98 Camaro to better Brandon Karaguezian’s 12.19 (12.16) from his N/SA ’82 Malibu Wagon. George LaBelle’s 10.31 (10.30) from his ’67 Camaro GT/JA defeated George Mirza’s 11.05 (11.04) in his ’70 Duster 340. Bob Letellier’s 2014 Camaro COPO FS/B ran a 9.77 (9.75) to defeat DJ Pires’ red lighting 69 Nova G/SA.

Quarterfinals would see Letellier defeat Jim Whitehead 9.77 to 10.72 (10.73) break out. In the match up of the day as the winner would clinch the 2020 season championship, Todd Bednaz defeated George LaBelle 10.56 to 10.28. Chris Butcher had the bye and would lose to Letellier in the semi-finals 9.77 (9.76 dial) to 10.78 (10.76 dial). Todd Bednaz had the bye into the final which solidified the 2020 championship. However, Letellier would prevail on the day defeating Bednaz 9.76 to 10.52.
