STP Wednesday Night Drags Results (Nov. 9)
The STP Wednesday Night Drags, Nov. 9, saw some of the best racing action of the year due to the much cooler November temperatures, which served as Mother Nature’s supercharger. Many racers obtained all time-bests due to great track conditions, mid 50-degree temperatures and no head winds to contend with.
San Jose's Steve Jaslovsky continued his reign in the Gear Jammer class and added another trophy to his collection making it four wins in a row. For the second straight week, it was Martinez’ Dwayne King, who had to settle for the runner-up spot.
Sonoma high school student Brian Hurley scored his first-ever class win beating out fellow teammate Mike Norrbom in the High School class final. Other class winners included Doug Love (Motorcycle), Mitch Gately (Comp Rod), Doug McCay (Sport Street), and John Terry (Street)
Next week (Nov. 16) will be the final STP Wednesday Night Drags race of the 2011 season. The final STP Bracket Drags event will be held on Sunday, Nov. 27. Fans at home can follow these events on www.1320go.com
