Right out of the gate the new tire option was helping all the Pro Street pilots at Northern Lights Raceway with Ethan jousting back and forth with rival Rob Aston for top spot in Saturday's qualifying. Ethan was on top until the final round, and Rob just edged out a .02 second lead, his 7.74 to Ethan's 7.76. Even though Rob had won the battle, the war was far from over.
Barkley pored over the data all evening in order to come up with a winning tune for Sunday. In the morning test session he posted an amazing 7.69 / 181 pass, to date the quickest Pro Street pass ever at this venue. In the final run of the day Ethan found that extra bit of power and was able to shatter that previous run with a stellar 7.57 / 182 to take the win.
Ethan and Rob battling head to head for the win
Barkley will be back in action September 6-7 for the CMDRA Prairie Nationals at Castrol Raceway in Edmonton, AB.
