2012 COSDRA Top Gun Shootout of Grass – Harrowsmith, Ontario

On Saturday October 27th, the Central Ontario Snowmobile Drag Racing Association(COSDRA), sanctioned the 2012 Top Gun Shootout of Grass, in Harrowsmith, Ontario. After a great day of racing at the Bill Day Farm. With world records being set in the 800 Improved class by Johnny Davis Jr., as well as in Open Improved by Jeff Marks.

Little Johnny, aboard the Davis Racing-Benoit powered Ski-Doo F-III 800, continued his dominance of the 800 Improved class. Laying down a pass of 4.961 seconds, breaking his own record in route too victory and earning himself another Top Gun jacket in the process.

Marks rode his D&D Racing prepared Arctic Cat too victory, in the Open Improved class, and broke the record for the second time of the day. In qualifying, Martin Gignac laid down a 5.18 on his Arctic Cat, breaking the old record. Only too have Jeff break his record, by .003 one thousandths of a second, five minutes later. Unfortunately for Gignac, who was also aboard a D&D prepped Cat, it was quite possibly the shortest time anyone has ever held a world record. Hats off too D&D Racing and Jeff Marks for their efforts and the new World Record of 5.18 in the Open Improved class.

Here are how the remainder of the class results looked, after a great day of racing in Harrowsmith.
