There was price on Kevin Thorp’s head after his win last night in the Maytag/Silverstate Refrigeration Wednesday portion of the K&N Spring Fling Million presented by Optima Batteries. The person who beat him in any round of eliminations today earned themselves a Racepak Sportsman Data Logger. That person ended up being Dane Ward who took out Thorp in the very first round.
The gates opened yesterday and by the time they closed at 9:00 last night, over 500 entries rolled through the gate to take part in the week’s festivities. Three separate $30,000-to-win races bookend Friday’s Spring Fling Million race. Typically, a lot of people will enter the auxiliary races with hopes of earning enough money to enter the separate Million with its progressive payout that guarantees $250,000 to the winner regardless of car count. The payout increases according to the entry count with only 475 entries required to pay the full $1,000,000.

The pits were packed and the stands were stuffed at the 11th Annual Scoggin-Dickey Parts Center NMRA/NMCA All-Star Nationals by MAHLE Motorsport, April 4-7 at Atlanta Dragway.
That’s where drivers in both series made every effort to wheel their cars to the coveted Aerospace Components Winner’s Circle, and they put up plenty of personal bests and potential records along the way.
On the NMCA side, drivers in VP Racing Fuels Xtreme Pro Mod put on a show while pushing their cars to the limit. Among them was Daniel Pharris, who stopped the clocks at 3.72 in his Mustang to lead qualifying. Several competitive rounds later, he made it to the final. There he lined up alongside Don Walsh Jr., who, like Pharris, had been consistent and quick all weekend. The tight race saw Walsh Jr. take the win with a 3.72 in his Corvette to Pharris’ 3.75.
