The 62nd annual World Series of Drag Racing was another great event. Just like past World Series, it was full of stars from the past and present, and, oh yeah, some fantastic racing!
Even with Mother Nature playing her games from time to time on Friday, there was still some awesome racing and even a new track MPH record for Nostalgia Funny Cars. Texan John Hale laid down a 253 MPH pass for the record.
Saturday brought a lot of excitement along with NHRA and IHRA Nitro stars like Top Fuelers Bruce Litton, Clay Millican, Jenna Haddock and the Lagana family. On the Nitro Funny Car side there was the Midwest favorite father and son team, Tim and Daniel Wilkerson.
The DRO Challenge was exciting as well. With the combination of Nitro Nostalgia Funny Cars and Dragsters running for the first time together, Paul Romine came out on top.
Rounding out the excitement were the ever popular Nostalgia Gassers, Nostalgia Pro Stockers and the Midwest Super Stock Mafia.
It was another great World Series of Drag Racing. I’m looking forward to the 2016 races.
