REPEAT WINNERS IN SOUTHEASTERN JR. DRAGSTER SPRING NATIONALS

ROCKINGHAM – There was an air of familiarity last weekend at Rockingham Dragway where three of the winners from last year’s inaugural Southeastern Jr. Dragster Spring Nationals found their way back to the podium during this year’s renewal.

Fayetteville’s Noah Johnson, Dunn’s Dawson Wiggins and Alec Dukes of Orangeburg, S.C., all were repeat winners although Johnson and Dukes swapped roles this time around.

Last year, it was Dukes who doubled-up. This year it was Johnson who did so, sweeping the Half Scale Dragsters 7.90 Index class and Jr. Dragster 1 on Saturday. Dukes rallied to win Sunday’s 7.90 title while Wiggins prevailed in Jr. Dragster 1.

Other winners included Kaden Harrill of Madisonville, Tenn., Logan Westmoreland of Greenwood, S.C., and Samantha Hollingsworth, also of Greenwood.

But for a heartbreaking .001 of a second foul start, Westmoreland might have swept the Jr. Dragster 2 races. Instead, he split with Harrill. Hollingsworth prevailed in the 330 class contested only on Saturday and sponsored by Roy Hill’s Jr. Drag Racing School and Fireade.

Although she didn’t win on either day, Kaylee Miller of Lancaster, S.C., came so close two times Saturday. First, she lost the Jr. 1 final to Johnson when she ran under her target number by .004 of a second. Then, she lost to Johnson a second time in the 7.90 semifinals where she came up .006 of a second short at the finish line.

The two-day event attracted Junior racers from seven different states including Samuel Peterson who got the long distance award after traveling from Richland, Mich., to compete.

Results from the second annual Fireade Jr. Dragster Spring Nationals at Rockingham Dragway:
