Sheldon Bissessar broke the South Dakota dragstrip track record with a 7.2-second conservative shakedown pass in his Spitzer dragster on Saturday afternoon at the GMRSC’s 1320 Showdown International Drag Race Meet. It was his only run down Guyana’s quarter-mile for the weekend. Fellow Trini drivers Miguel Pustam and Kervin Rebeiro also completed initial test passes into Sunday, but an hours-long rainstorm stopped the entire meet. Mere moments before the track was soaked, Team Mohamed’s Clint Satterfield reclaimed the track record for Guyana with a near-perfect 7.0-second run in their Pro Mod Mustang. After the rains, Kervin Rebiero led the Trini return salvo. After a powerful launch, he skidded off the track on his run, and slowly rolled onto the hood. He was unhurt and the car damage was only cosmetic, but the window had closed for any further runs.
