Friday, May 25, 2012

Crossroads Dragway in Terre Haute recently held the first of five races of the Fast 33 at the 330, along with regular Summit E.T. points racing on May 19.

Brad Miles captured the Low Qualifier spot for a moment in the Fast series as his engine let go near the finish line during the first round of qualifying. Cloverdale's Tony Virgilio took over the Low Qualifier spot with a 2.93 second ET and marched his way to victory in the final over Adam Price. Jake Hodge took the Super-Pro win over Todd Stillwell and Mike Tewell won Pro over Steve Conrad.

Mike's son, Austin Tewell, lost the final in Sportsman to Adam Price and his daughter, Amara Tewell, took the High School class win over Alan Grayless III.
