WHAT A DRAG!

Diesel World - - Event -

Dustin Jack­son tripped the red light by start­ing a lit­tle too early. Ryan Mil­liken took ad­van­tage of Michael Dal­ton’s slow reaction at the lights to take home the Pro Mod win de­spite ped­al­ing through a slower pass than Dal­ton, who ran a lower ET in the loss.

Af­ter the of­fi­cial racing was com­pleted, Mil­liken ac­cepted a big money call-out from Bobby Du­cote of Street Out­laws New Or­leans fame to race any diesel for more than $5,000. With a ton of cash on the line, Mil­liken knocked the tires off and ped­aled his Cum­mins-pow­ered Nova to the fin­ish line be­hind Du­cote’s new Mus­tang. But some­thing tells us we

 De­spite tak­ing the win, the Scheid rail did not fare too well in Bowl­ing Green, with the head, tur­bos and com­plete top end blow­ing off the block be­fore it crossed the fin­ish line. For­tu­nately, no one was in­jured and the team at Scheid Diesel built and in­stalled a new en­gine in the drag­ster the very next week­end.

 Joshua Bald­win won the Best Sus­pen­sion award for the cus­tom-fab­ri­cated air sus­pen­sion on his GMC De­nali HD, seen here in its low­ered po­si­tion.

 Woosley had a chance to dou­ble up, mak­ing it to the 6.7 In­dex fi­nal round but fall­ing to Austin Doidge (near lane) as they both broke out. Doidge’s was the lesser foul and took the win.

 The TS footrace was an­other new event added to the week­end of fes­tiv­i­ties. The dash for cash was a fun event for those will­ing to sprint down the track.

 Lavon Miller (near lane) took the win in the Pro Street class Satur­day when Dustin Jack­son left a lit­tle too early.
