2015 Dixie Region Turkey Shootout Recap

2015 Turkey Shootout November 2015 -- As the clocks rolled backward, Dixie Region moved forward in anticipation for a day filled with fun, excitement, and suspense. An accelerated schedule meant an even earlier start for competitors. Event Staff Crew led by Rookie Event Chair Aaron Kemmer arrived on-site in preparation for an action packed-day. Despite the ominous clouds that surrounded the site and scattered rain that dampened the course, preparations continued. Thirty-four (34) Entrants took to the course during morning runs with five attempts each to try and win the class. At the end of Competitive Runs, almost 200 successful timed runs were recorded. These runs would encompass the Dixie Points Event for the day. Breaking for lunch, a sudden downpour fell upon the Course as both racers and corner workers ran for cover to try and gain some respite from the weather. As the break drew to an end, the skies around Spence Field began to clear and three Shootout Brackets were seeded. Twenty-four (24) total competitors were invited to compete in the Turkey Shootout Bonus, Club, and Super Brackets. The Top 8 PAX Competitors were invited to participate in the Super Shootout, followed by 9-16 in the Club Shootout, and 17-20 plus 4 random draws in the Bonus Shootout. All three brackets offered some tight racing and close calls. Winning the Bonus Shootout by a margin of 0.235 seconds (after also having previously won the Novice Class earlier in the morning) was Ernesto Boasque in his G-Street #11 Volkswagen GTI. The Club Shootout was determined by an even narrower margin of 0.172 seconds and won by Brantley Herman who was competing in only his second Autocross Event EVER in the borrowed STR #38 Honda S2000 owned by Nathan Gordon. The Super Shootout got underway and the top guns battled it out. Some fast and exciting racing came to an exciting finale pitting Brian Meyers in the F-Street #85 Ford Mustang GT against Mark Canekeratne in the D-Street Prepared #22 BMW 330ci. Tensions rose and murmurs from the crowd grew as a prelude to the upcoming Dixie Allies vs. Axis Solo Event next month pitted an Allied car against that of an Axis Power. Mark drove through the lights with a blazing time of 35.333 as Brian began his assault on the course for the deciding run of the Super Shootout. Brian ended the run with tire smoke and screeching as his Mustang spun through the finish with a scratch time of 35.878 plus four cones, allowing Mark to claim victory in the Super Shootout.
