DIV. 4 SEALS THE DEAL IN JEGS ALL-STARS AGAIN
The NHRA's Div. 4 (South Central Division) took home the JEGS AllStar team title once again and the Central Region captured the alcohol crown at the most prestigious race-within-a-race sportsman events on the NHRA sportsman tour at the NHRA Route 66 Nationals.
NHRA's Div. 4 includes Texas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Mississippi, and Arkansas
The victory ensured all members of the Div. 4 team would share a $20,000 bonus courtesy of event sponsor JEGS Mail Order.
Armed with the success of four individual champions, the Division 4 team scored crucial victories from Jeff Lopez (Stock), Christopher Dodd (Super Comp), Cy Hill (Super Street), and Darian Boesch (Top Dragster). A reasonable close second place finish was turned in by Div. 2 (Southeastern), while Div. 1 (Northeastern) was third.
With the victory, Div. 4 tied Div. 3 (North Central) for most team victories at eight.
The Central Division claimed the alcohol portion scored the title when they won a tiebreaker over the West Region team. Those winners included Joey Severance (Top Alcohol Dragster) and Ray Drew (Top Alcohol Funny Car).
Other winners included Frank Aragona (Comp), Jeff Dona (Super Stock), John Labbous Jr. (Super Gas), and Kynon Dinkel (Top Sportsman).
