MECHANICSVILLE, MARYLAND (December 7, 2021) – The 2021 Ricks Jewelers Ring for the Queen fight brought six drivers tied at five diamond points each into the final race of the 2021 season. Marc Williams (Top ET), Brian McLaughlin (Top ET), Buddy McGowan (Top ET), Bobby Mattera (Mod ET), Alan Thatcher (Mod ET), and James Getty (Mod ET) would be making the chase for one of the most unique prizes for a track’s local ET Series. All six drivers would be eliminated early, and none would receive a diamond point to break the multiway tie. The Ricks Jewelers Ring for the Queen would ultimately come down to the tie breaker system. The first tie breaker, most points races won during the current season, would be the deciding factor. Bobby Mattera would be the only race winner after winning the Pro Challenge/ IHRA Sportsman Spectacular in the Mod ET Category in August. Bobby Mattera is the third Mattera to win the Ring for the Queen joining brothers Tony Mattera and John Mattera.
