In Outlaw Drag Radial Frank Soldridge set low ET with a 4.41 @ 180 with his best pass ever, just behind him Scotty G ripped off a 4.399 @ 170 with his nitrous sniffing Camaro which will be a track record if he can back it up. In 275 Drag Radial Martin Connelley is on a roll with his nitrous big block running another 4.65 just ahead of Bruder’s 4.66 @ 158, Connelley will not make the next round sadly.
