"Jersey Eliminator" Dominates Competition
In some of the most exciting "Valve Cover Racing" the South has ever scene, the "Jersey Eliminator" blew away the competition and took home 1st overall honors this weekend, in a support race to the "Walter Mitty MG-Triumph Race" at Road Atlanta, Georgia. Although challenged by others as being over-weight, it passed scrutineering OK. The MG Midget "Eliminator" valve cover racer was built by master valve cover engineer Jim Finne, and driven by noted vintage MG racer Greg Prehodka. It just kept blowing away the other valve covers one after another in elimination heats! In the final round of racing for the win, it just nosed out the other valve cover by a margin of two inches at the finish line, and was declared the "WINNER"!. There was only one minor incident during the event, when some stranger tried to stop the "Eliminator" just past the finish line with their foot, not realizing the forces involved, and was almost eliminated himself. Fortunately, no toes were broken.
The competition was sponsored by Classic Motorsports Magazine, and for the winning team, Jim will receive a free one year's subscription to Classic Motorsports Magazine, and the racing results will be published in the magazine.
