Warm temperatures and sunny skies greeted fans and racers at the Atlanta Dragway in Commerce Saturday. Fans were treated to some great racing, with Brad Howard and Kyle Stephens ending their win droughts with victories on the quarter mile.
Brad Howard, Gainesville, found a tire combination that worked well for his ’02 Miller Dragster, helping him towards his victory in the Super Pro category. Howard took out Toccoa’s Thomas Bell with a great 4.88-second pass at 141 mph (4.87 target). Bell attempted to win by taking the finish line stripe first, but broke out with a 4.67 at 144.88 mph (4.68 dial) due to Howard’s better reaction time.
