DEMITO, NORRIS CLAIM TITLES at THE ROCK SCHNITZ SUMMER SIZZLER

ROCKINGHAM, N.C. – Rodney Williford’s foul start in the Pro Sport Bike semifinals opened the door for No. 2 qualifier Vincent Demito of Collegeville, Pa., Sunday, who went on to win the Schnitz Summer Sizzler Rockingham Dragway.

Demito shared the winners’ circle with Dave Norris of Bryans Road, Md., who won in Outlaw Pro Street, and Kenny Lewis of Columbia, who claimed the 5.60 Pro Comp title. 

Boo Brown of Potomac Falls, Md., doubled-up in the ET classes, winning Street ET on Saturday and Pro ET on Sunday and claiming a $500 bonus for Nitrous Express for winning the most racing rounds over the two days (11).  Robin Procopio of Wake Forest won the FBR Shop Quick 32 competition for the Pro ET bikes over Jason Herron, Lexington, S.C.

Until his foul start against former champ Anthony Navarro of Royersford, Pa., Williford appeared unbeatable particularly after he lowered the Pro Sport Bike national recoord to 7.690 seconds during qualifying.  It was his best outing since being forced out of the all-conquering turbo bike in which set the Outlaw Pro record (6.918 seconds) last year.

Navarro, who was the beneficiary of Williford’s foul start, had Demito covered in the final but couldn’t overcome his rival’s near perfect .007 reaction time that transformed a slower 7.798 into a winner over a quicker 7.744.

Norris beat Charles Varnedoe of Jacksonville, Fla., Steve Brindle of Mandaville, La., No. 1 qualifier Ronnie Procopio of Wake Forest and, finally, Robert Hunnicutt of Youngsville to win for the first time at The Rock.
