Coming off a triennial of No. 1 qualifier awards St. Louis native John DeFlorian’s storybook drag racing season continues to reach new heights. Deflorian put together the quickest and fastest 1/8-mile run in Pro Stock history, running a 4.018 seconds elapsed time at 179.92 miles per hour during the third qualifying session on Friday during the American Drag Racing League’s (ADRL) Gateway Drags IV presented by CarSafe at Gateway Motorsports Park.
“This is beyond, far beyond my wildest dreams and having it happen here makes it so much sweeter,” Deflorian said. “I know so many people here and having them out here at this race just makes it so special. “I’m almost speechless. This is just unbelievable and that’s not even a big enough of a word to describe it.”
