You think NHRA Pro Stock has diversity?...How about the BTE S/Pro class at DRR Good Year events this year. So far 26 possible race days and 26 different winners! The Coan Milan event was no exception with not only a new winner but two of the last three cars left in S/Pro were door cars. Whats unique about that?...It's one of a few select 1/4 mile races in the series. Rick Cornell taking over the driving duties for Matt Cornell won one for the door car guys and gals when he took out Junior Streib from Whitehouse Ohio.
