Championship runner-up JR Carr was the lone winner on Saturday night at the Professional Drag Racers Association (PDRA) Proline Racing Brian Olson Memorial World Finals, as rain set in just after completing the Extreme Pro Stock final round at Virginia Motorsports Park. Carr won on a single after final-round opponent Dwayne Rice lost power after the burnout.
The all-eighth-mile series will attempt to finish the season finale on Sunday, though rain remains in the forecast.
“We’ve been trying to get ahead of these storms all weekend, and we just came up a little short tonight,” said Tyler Crossnoe, race director, PDRA. “We are watching the forecast and we’ll do the best we can to get this race completed when the weather allows.”
During eliminations that were completed, drivers in a handful of classes secured 2020 PDRA world championships. John Strickland claimed his first title in Penske/PRS Pro Boost presented by WS Construction. Similarly, Wes Distefano became a first-time world champion in $hameless Racing Pro Outlaw 632. Steve Furr (Lucas Oil Elite Top Dragster), Stacy Hall (MagnaFuel Top Sportsman), Nyckolas Shirkey (Coolshirt Pro Jr. Dragster) and Alyssa Rabon also clinched championships.
