After being delayed by inclement weather last week, racers at the Atlanta Dragway opened their 2011 season with near perfect conditions Saturday.
Jefferson’s Jody Blalock brought his fast and unique 1947 Hudson out to the Commerce quarter mile, and succeeded in turning on the final round win light in Pro class against Randall Roop of Canton. Blalock’s small reaction time advantage helped him take the win in spite of a breakout pass of 6.264 at 109.47 mph (6.27 dial).
Roop actually took the finish line first, but broke out more in his ’95 Mustang GT, which carded a 6.457 at 105.87 mph (6.51 dial).
