Treble Returns to Final Round At Vegas Divisional
Las Vegas Divisional Race Report: Craig Treble picked up right where he left off in Nevada last weekend, parking the winning Pro Stock Bike, then putting the Matco Tools Bracket Racing Suzuki into the final round of the NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series at "The Strip" in Las Vegas.
Unlike NHRA POWERade Nationals where professional qualifying is based on Elapsed Time, the NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series events use reaction time (R.T.) to qualify the Kerker Sportsman Motorcycles. Craig Treble settled into the No. 7 spot with a .010 R.T. after three rounds of qualifying, following No.1 qualifier Greg Liskey who posted a perfect .000.
Treble's return to his bracket racing roots gives some insight to his popularity he enjoys as a professional "I just love to race" Commented Craig. "Getting back and bracket racing gives me some seat time which always helps, but the plain fact is I like hanging out with these guys and racing. The competition and camaraderie at the division level is great."
Treble opened with a victory's over No. 17 qualifier Roy Barrera in round one, and No.2 qualifier Larry Eperjesi from lake Dallas, Texas in round two. After winning a .0147 Margin of Victory race over Joe Collette in round three, Treble took a semi-final bye before facing No.1 qualifier and good friend Greg Liskey in the Kerker Vegas final.
The championship round was all Liskey as the veteran rider nailed the tree with a great .001 R.T, then ran a 9.646 on his 9.57 Dial In. Treble wasn't far behind running 9.038 on his 8.98 Dial, but a .067 R.T from the Matco Tools Rider put him too far behind to challenge Liskey for the finish line.
Like Craig Treble the week before, Greg Liskey also qualified No.1 and won the Vegas event. "Congratulations to Greg on a great race, and thanks to Kerker for putting together this series at the NHRA Division level."
