Mark it down as a strong weekend for regular racers at Atlanta Dragway. Saturday’s race exposed some Atlanta Dragway regulars as serious competition, with many names reappearing in the top spots of each category.
In Super Pro competition, Gainesville’s Brad Howard got the bye-run into the finals, pitting his ’02 Miller Dragster against Stan Sinack’s ’69 Dart. Sinack, of Lilburn, left the line first with a .020 reaction time, while Howard left early, turning on the red light and instantly handing the win to Sinack.
Sinack ran under his 6.62 dial-in with a 6.56 ET at 103.96 mph. Sinack also dedicated his victory to his late mother Betty Vihinen.
