Dominant performances, holeshot victories and first-time winners highlighted the final-round action at the Professional Drag Racers Association (PDRA) Summer Shootout presented by Callies Performance Saturday night at Virginia Motorsports Park.
Kurt Steding (Penske/PRS Pro Boost presented by WS Construction) and Jimmy Pelcarsky ($hameless Racing Pro Outlaw 632) collected their first-ever PDRA event victories, while points leaders Tommy Franklin (Switzer Dynamics Pro Nitrous) and Johnny Pluchino (Liberty’s Gears Extreme Pro Stock) padded their leads with wins. Paul Gast earned the Drag 965 Pro Nitrous Motorcycle victory.
The PDRA’s sportsman classes had some upsets and races with major championship implications, as Buddy Perkinson (MagnaFuel Elite Top Sportsman presented by Tejas Borja), Chaz Silance (Lucas Oil Elite Top Dragster), Mike Butler (MagnaFuel Top Sportsman 32) and Stacy Hall (Lucas Oil Top Dragster 32) claimed victories.
In the Jr. Dragster categories, Will Creasman used a superior reaction time and a 7.939 to overcome the 7.909 pass by Nyckolas Shirkey in the 7.90-dial-in Coolshirt Pro Jr. Dragster final round. Similarly, Chloe Geryes’ better light allowed her 9.082 on a 9.07 dial-in to defeat Danika Miles, who went 9.083 on a 9.08 dial-in.
