WELCOME TO "THE ROCK"  ROCKINGHAM DRAGWAY - ROCKINGHAM, N.C.
 
 
NHRA’S FUTURE STARS SHINE THIS WEEK AT ROCKINGHAM DRAGWAY
Lucas Oil Series Features Diversity in Both Vehicles and Drivers
ROCKINGHAM, N.C. – The future stars of NHRA drag racing including second generation standouts Dylan Stott of Columbus, N.C., Randy Daniels of Grantsboro, N.C., and Jenny Treadwell of Mount Plymouth, Fla., take the spotlight this week when the NHRA’s Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series moves to Rockingham Dragway.

The fourth of six races in a Southeast division encompassing the Carolinas, Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee and Virginia will feature racing in the Top Dragster and Top Sportsman classes as well as in Competition Eliminator, Super Stock, Stock, Super Comp, Super Gas and Super Street.

“It’s been 16 years since we’ve been in the NHRA system so we’re just kinda tip-toeing right now,” said Rockingham owner Steve Earwood. “The Lucas Oil Series is like NASCAR’s Infinity Series. It’s the series that feeds the Mello Yello Series.

“Jack Beckman, who beat John Force to win the NHRA race at Topeka, Kansas last weekend, came up through the Lucas Oil Series. So did Erica Enders-Stevens and Shawn Langdon, Courtney and Brittany Force and Alexis DeJoria,” Earwood said, referencing some of the biggest current stars on NHRA’s main stage.

Stott, whose uncle and father both were standouts in the IHRA Pro Modified division, will send his 1967 Ford Mustang replica after point leader Jeffrey Barker of Kathleen, Ga., in a Top Sportsman category that also includes Donny “Hollywood” Urban of Pittsboro, N.C., Ken Ellison of Moore, S.C., and reigning PDRA champion Ronnie Davis of Suwanee, Ga.

“Pro Modified racing grew right out of Top Sportsman,” Earwood said. “It’s a great class because of all the different combinations. You’ve got early model Mustangs like Dylan’s and then you have late model Camaros and Cobalts and Pontiacs. And the companion to that is Top Dragster, the next step down from Top Fuel.”

In fact, the Top Dragster field may be even more competitive than that in Top Sportsman with many-time Southeast Division Super Gas champ Steve Furr of Harrisburg, N.C., squaring off against former IHRA and NHRA World Champion Anthony Bertozzi of Ashland, Va., among others.

In fact, Furr and Bertozzi will be among a handful of drivers trying to double-up at The Rock. In addition to Top Dragster, Furr also will compete in Super Gas, a class in which he has won eight times at the divisional level. Bertozzi will try to break a tie for the Super Stock point lead at the wheel of his venerable 1968 Pontiac Grand Am.

In Competition Eliminator, which showcases the greatest diversity of all with dragsters and roadsters competing against coupes and sedans, the favorites are Daniels, son of former NHRA standout Garley Daniels Jr., and Treadwell, daughter of many-time national event winner Glen Treadwell.

Racing will begin Friday with a Sportsman Shootout featuring $2,000 to the winners in Super Gas/Super Comp/Super Street and Super Stock/Stock to be followed by the first round of qualifying in Top Sportsman, Top Dragster and Competition.

Saturday’s program will feature Top Dragster and Top Sportsman qualifying at 1 and 4 p.m. followed by first round racing at 6:30 pm. Racing will resume with the second round at 9 a.m. Sunday.

General admission tickets, which include full pit access, are $50 for the weekend, $40 for Saturday and Sunday or $20 Sunday only. Children under 12 are free when accompanied by a ticketed adult and, as always, parking is free in Rockingham’s main lot.

DOBBINS, CREECH BIG WINNERS IN ‘BIG JOHN’ MEMORIAL RACE
Plott, Aman, Pennington Among Champions at Rockingham Dragway
ROCKINGHAM – Familiar names claimed the bulk of the hardware over the holiday weekend as Jeffery Dobbins II of Wilmington, Tommy Plott of Winston-Salem, Jarrett Creech of Selma, Eric Aman of Clinton and Zach Pennington of Lexington, S.C. and were the big winners in the 17th annual “Big John” Leviner Memorial Bracket Championships at Rockingham Dragway.

Creech claimed the biggest single share of the holiday purse after winning Sunday’s $7,500 Pro ET title over Sammy Adkins of Bluefield, West Va., and he also won Sunday’s “Wally”, but it was Dobbins, the son of IHRA Pro Stock standout Jeff Dobbins, who was the big winner.

Not only did he win Monday’s Pro ET title, he was runner-up to Plott on Saturday and capped the weekend by winning one of the four special “Wally” trophies awarded at the end each day to the winners of runoffs between the Pro ET and Footbrake winners.

Other winners of the trophies named for NHRA founder Wally Parks and presented to race winners at NHRA national events were Plott and Pennington.

Creech got the “Wally” on Sunday when Aman was guilty of a breakout foul, missing his target number by .010 of a second. A former Rockingham track champion, Aman got his shot by winning Sunday’s Footbrake class.

Plott, a frequent Rockingham winner and former Carolina Coalition Series champion, beat Footbrake winner Tommy Duff of Holly Ridge to win the “Wally” on opening day.

Pennington got the last “Wally” in a three-round shootout involving the most successful of the weekend’s Jr. Dragster drivers. He beat Fayetteville’s Noah Johnson, last year’s winner, in the final.

CARROLL, LYTCH WIN BIG AT ROUSH YATES SPRING CIVIL WARS
Tasca Wins the Battle of the Cobra Jets, but Hills Salvages a New Record



ROCKINGHAM – After losing the first two races Sunday in a special Spring Civil Wars showdown with Yankee invader Carl Tasca, Carolina’s Roy Hill earned a measure of revenge in the finale when he pushed his Cobra Jet Mustang to the quickest quarter mile in the history of the high-performance Ford breed.

Hill, a former IHRA Pro Stock world champion who now operates Roy Hill’s Drag Racing School at Rockingham Dragway, stopped the timers in 7.523 seconds at 184.75 miles per hour to win a somewhat anticlimatic final against Tasca, who already had won bragging rights in the best-of-three duel.

However, losing the title of “world’s quickest” sent the Rhode Island driver back home determined to recapture the title of having the sport’s quickest and fastest Ford Cobra Jet. The son of the late Bob Tasca Sr., the man who created the original Cobra Jet, had a best time Sunday of 7.596 seconds, his second quickest time ever.

In addition to the match race, the 20th renewal of the Roush Yates Performance Products Spring Civil Wars included a Ford-only car show, events in the Ford Fun Series, exhibition performances by a jet-powered dragster and Danny O’Day’s “Superwinch” wheelstander and a full slate of drag races.

Clayton’s Jamie Carroll picked off the biggest single share of a record event purse when he drove his 1971 Chevy Nova to an eight-round victory for a $2,000 payday in the Soles Auto Service Footbrake class on Sunday.

In addition to Carroll, event winners included Willie Lytch of Southern Pines, who drove his 1967 Chevy Camaro to a big win in the ATI Pro Tree Doorslammer class; Dallas Glenn of Mooresville, whose 1968 Chevy El Camino was a popular winner in Open Comp; Bennett’s Howard Brewer, a winner in Combo Eliminator with his ’85 Mustang; and former Rock track champ Steve Alford of Angier, who won Saturday’s Sole Footbrake title in a race completed Sunday morning.

In an all-Alford final, Steve Alford used a .003 of a second reaction time to turn back Rashad Alford of Benson, who lost despite running dead-on his target at 6.860. The margin at the finish line was .010 of a second.

In the 5.30 Index class, which made its Civil Wars debut, Robert Anderson drove his 1963 Chevy Corvette to victory over Andy Jeffers in a final round featuring drivers from the same hometown – Cassatt, S.C.

Although an overall champion was not determined due to Saturday time constraints, the debut of the Donnie Gibbs Racing Outlaw 4.70 class was declared a major success after attracting a field of 25.

The purse was split Saturday night among four unbeaten – Nick Cline of Mooresville, whose 1934 Chevy coupe was a fan favorite, Dale McSwain of Norwood, Charlotte’s Greg Patillo Jr. and Kevin Carpenter. Johnathan Gibbs of Salisbury was the top qualifier at 4.705 seconds, .005 off the target.

The Fun Ford Car Show awarded Best of Show to the 1985 Mustang of Randall Snider, Garner, Best Truck to John Eddings of Foxfire Village in his 2000 Ford Lightning with the Best Classic Award won by Freddie Kelly, Jr of Southern Pines in his 1970 Mustang. Best New Ford was won by Richard Barnhill of Rockingham in a 2015 Mustang and the Club Participation Award went to the Campbell Club or Aberdeen.

DIEFFENBACH RENEWS SUPPORT FOR CLASSIC ROCK SUPER CHEVY SHOW



Track owner Steve Earwood and Dieffenbach GM Super Store General Manager Jeff Dieffenbach have confirmed that the Rockingham General Motors dealership has renewed its sponsorship of the Classic Rock Super Chevy Show presented by Richmond County Tourism, which returns to Rockingham Dragway Oct. 9-11.

The sport’s largest all-Chevy event, the Dieffenbach GM Superstore Super Chevy Show will feature bowtie action both on and off the track with a car show, swap meet and Chevrolet product displays along with a full slate of drag races.

The Dieffenbach GM Superstore, located at 1209 E. Broad Avenue in Rockingham, is a one-stop source for everything branded with the Chevrolet, GMC, Cadillac and Buick logos as well as for service on all makes and models. Dieffenbach technicians are trained and equipped to handle everything from oil changes to tire rotations to brakes, batteries and multi-point vehicle inspections.

“The Dieffenbach GM Superstore is where you can get one of those Camaro 2LT coupes with the 6.2 liter V8,” Earwood said. “That’s one fast hot rod and you can bring it out to The Rock and shake it down whenever you want and maybe even bring it to the big race in the fall. We look forward to continuing our relationship with Jeff Dieffenbach and his crew at the dealership”.
