If you missed this race, you missed a good one. There were 9 different classes for all kinds of car enthusiasts. The Pro Mod/Renegade race originally scheduled for August 13 was rain delayed to August 27 which meant we ran our classes along with the Southwest Heritage Racing Association (SHRA). Mother Nature was a drag racing fan and that was evident by the very nice weather we had. After two rounds of qualifying in our series, here’s how everything unfolded.
#1 Steve Wiley – 3.921 at 182 mph **Low ET Blown**
#2 Gaylen Smith – 3.932 at 190 mph **Top MPH Blown**
#3 Bob Alexander – 4.104 at 187 mph
#4 Eric Clark – 4.145 at 157 mph **Best reaction time qualifying .004)
#5 Chad Green – 4.212 at 172 mph **Low ET Nitrous**
#6 David Baldwin – 4.275 at 173 mph **Top MPH Nitrous**
