GROOMS, LYNCH, CARR EACH WIN $100,000 AT ROCKINGHAM

 

While Top Fuel driver Steve Torrence was picking up a check for a mere $50,000 as winner of the NHRA Fall Nationals Sunday at Dallas, Texas, three different drivers in far less powerful cars were departing Rockingham Dragway more than $100,000 richer after big victories in the SFG Super Bowl of Drag Racing.

the five-day bracket race attracted more than 500 participants from across the country and, at week’s end, Marshall Grooms of Washington, D.C., “Racin’ Jason” Lynch of Pleasantview, Tenn., and Shane Carr of White House, Tenn., had grabbed off the biggest shares of the purse.

Auto Club Dragway racers topped the list of 19 teams as they out scored the teams from Sonoma Raceway in Northern Calif., and Rocky Mountain Raceway out of West Valley City, Utah, who took second and third respectively with 65 and 55 points each.
 
Dye, Ontario, Calif., grabbed the holeshot lead on Jeremy Rapp then laid down a lap of 7.507 on the 7.50 dial to take the win in Super Pro running 177.32 mph. Rapp, Las Vegas, was right behind with a nice 7.365 second pass at 181.74.

Pritchett and Skinner had a close start of the line with Skinner in the lead at the 300-foot mark until his car made a quick move allowing Pritchett to go around and pull away for the win and the championship.

NMRA ALL-FORD WORLD FINALS CROWNS WINNERS

The sun has set on the 2018 NMRA drag racing season and on twenty years of incredibly awesome NMRA All-Ford World Finals competition at Kentucky’s beautiful Beech Bend Raceway Park. Tons of sunshine and great racing allowed the year to wrap up with wins celebrated in the Aerospace Components Winner’s Circle, records, championships, and a whole lot more at the 20th Annual Nitto Tire NMRA World Finals Presented By Holley EFI. Congratulations to all the NMRA racers on another epic season, and to all the event winners and newly-minted season champions.

Andy Manson topped the qualifying order in VP Racing Fuels Street Outlaw with his ’96 Mustang when the man from Manassas, Virginia, cruised the eighth-mile in 4.281 at 175.64 mph. Manson maintained his momentum through to the finals where he met with Alton Clements of Central, South Carolina. Both men left the line hard, but Clements in his newly-acquired ’92 Mustang got the hole shot win on a 4.342 at 167.28 mph blast over Manson’s 4.333 at 169.47 mph effort to capture the NMRA Victor trophy. It wasn’t moot for Manson, though, as he was crowned the champion for 2018.
