The first event on Sunday March 10th, was rained out, but the second event on March 24, was a HUGE success. The weather was cold and windy, but that didn’t stop 33 “BOX” racers and 47 “TOP” racers from competing for a total GUARANTEED prize payout of $7,525. Jr. Dragster class was not contested, because, the Jr. Dragster Nationals was being held just down the Hwy at San Antonio Raceway.
The big money winners were Jay Robinson in TOP who took home $3,000 and Troy Lakey who took home the $ 1,000 top prize in MOD.
Jay Robinson also runner-up’d to Troy Lakey in Mod for a second pay out of $500.

“Yes, it really was a FREE RACE “ said Jay Robinson. “ I owe it all to GOD for giving me the ability to compete at this level.”
