June 22nd the Harmon Racing crew travelled to London Kentucky for the London
Dragway Volkswagen Nationals. A weather front moved through and gave the
track a bath limiting the race to two rounds of qualifying. The weather
also seemed to be effecting the speeds as well with most cars running
significantly slower than usual in the early rounds. In the
first match up during eliminations, Damon faced off against ECPRA
vice president Gene Collier and his blue 69 ghia. Damon beat him
soundly turning in a time of 6.61 seconds against Gene's 7.05. In
the semi-finals Damon was paired up against Denis Elliot of Conyers
Georgia. Damon got a little loose somewhere near the sixty foot marker,
and though he got the car straightened out, it hurt his time.
Despite the slip, Damon still managed to turn in a time of 6.62
seconds, but it was not enough to beat out Denis who ran a 6.41 time to advance
to the finals. Denis went on to win the final round and claim
his firts ever ECPRA victory. Watch for a rematch at an upcoming race
Damon Harmon and Warren Skaggs face
off again, but this time only for qualifying.
