Share |




The 37th annual NHRA Southern Nationals took place this past weekend at Atlanta Dragway. And despite the inclement weather, all competition was completed. David Rampy, Piedmont, Ala., and Jimmy Hidalgo Jr. Donaldsonville, La., led the winner’s circle for the Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series.

David Rampy squared off against Jeff Longhany, Wade, N.C. in the final round of Super Stock. Loghany started slightly too quick, activating the red light on the tree, giving Rampy the win; 10.198 seconds, 129.23 mph. Rampy closes in on 100 national event victories, as he earns his 94th national event Wally trophy.

In the Stock Eliminator final round, Jimmy Hidalgo Jr.  grabbed a big hole shot and successfully held off Jerry Emmons, Pasadena, Texas for the win. Hidalgo Jr. made a victory pass of 10.849 seconds, 117.56 mph. Emmons runner upped at 10.526 seconds, 114.62 mph.

Top Sportsman standouts Sandy Wilkins, Mount Ulla, N.C. and Vince Hoda, D'Iberville, Miss., faced off for Top Sportsman glory. Hoda took the lead but Wilkins displayed resilience and was able to push past his Mississippi rival for the win in the Top Sportsman presented by RacingRVs final round. Wilkins cruised to victory at 6.722, 198.70, Hoda followed up at 6.892, 198.15. Joe Fischer, Clayton, Ohio, reached his first final round in Top Dragster Presented By Racing RVs, and made the most of it.  Kevin Brannon, Boiling Springs SC, took the starting line advantage but eased off the throttle as he experienced mechanical issues; Fischer took the win at 6.391 191.54. Brannon clocked in at 7.729 135.82.
