VARNER, RAY AMONG WINNERS AT 23rd MOPARS AT THE ROCK EVENT
 
 
Stanley’s Billy Varner Jr. claimed the $1,200 top prize Saturday when David Keels of Matthews fouled out by .001 of a second in the Top ET final round at the 23rd annual Mopars at the Rock all-Chrysler event at Steve Earwood’s Rockingham Dragway.

Other bracket winners Saturday were J.W. Ray of Winston-Salem and Davey Emanuel of Laurinburg in the Footbrake and Trophy classes, respectively.

The event celebrated all things Mopar with a car show, swap meet and an exhibition involving hemi-powered Super Stock cars.  Among the cars that reached the quarterfinal round in Top ET were a pair of 1972 Plymouths – Jim Chandler’s Duster and Lynn Baldwin’s Roadrunner. 

Eric Hultburg’s vintage 1965 Plymouth Valiant was runner-up to Ray’s 1970 Dodge Challenger in Footbrake.

Stanton, who was in the other lane Saturday night when Taylor became the first to break the 3.50 barrier at the eighth mile distance (3.485 seconds), didn’t get a rematch on Sunday because Taylor, the veteran from Dickinson, Texas, was sent home in round one by Kuwait-based Anthony DiSomma in the biggest upset of the year.
