Montgomery Motorsports Park kicked off the sixth season of the Super 7 Series this past weekend with the new purse structure. The weather was cold and windy but racers traveled several hours to get a shot at $10,000 to win in the electronics class. The event also included the No Box and Jr. Dragster class. The guaranteed Super Pro purse will make for one of the best seasons ever for the Super 7 Series.
This weekend was definitely called “Lynch Motorsports Park.” On Friday, Jason Lynch of Cars Protection Plus kicked off one heck of a weekend after claiming Winner and R/U in the Electronics class. Brent Jones was the lone semi-finalist. Lynch backed up his performance on Saturday after marching to the winner’s circle to claim $10,000. Lynch took the win after 16 year old Cole Langford turned it red in the final round. DragCoverage.com congratulates both Jason Lynch and rising star Cole Langford on the final round appearances.
In Saturday’s No-Box Class, Josh Green marched to the winner’s circle after DragCoverage.com star Jared Pennington turned it red in the final round.
Rebeka Evans was on a mission in the Jr. Dragster Class on Saturday. In the finals, her .018 reaction and 3 above the dial was enough to take out local racer Tucker Kay in the final round.
Sunday’s forecast was dead on as the temperatures were much warmer than the previous days of the event. Sunday’s at Montgomery Motorsports Park seem to belong to Timmy Smith as he continued his dominance into the final round after defeating Lance Kittle in the final round.
On Saturday Night, Heath Davis defeated Jason Enfinger in the 32 Car Shootout for the Million Dollar Entry. Davis, behind the wheel of Bob Savages’ Miller Dragster, went several rounds in other races during the weekend.
Timmy Smith continued his “Sunday dominance,” as we like to call it, after defeating Lance Kittle in the final round. Cole Cousins, Milbrook, AL was the lone semi-finalist.
On Sunday in No-Box, Jason Pruitt defeated Jonathan Booth to march into the winner’s circle. Pruitt was .006 and 1 above his dial in the final round. Talk about gunning for his opponent! Congratulations to both drivers!
In the Jr. Dragster class it was a “Quick” final round as Brody Quick and Kiefer Quick faced each other. The two were gunning for each other as Brody Quick lit up the win light after his .019 reaction and only .002 under his dial. Kiefer Quick was -.008 red in the finals. The Jr. Dragster class is getting tough! Congratulations to Brody and Kiefer from DragCoverage.com!

Mar 11, 2014 0Good winter day DC readers! My goodness what a tough and long ‘off’ season it has been. I’m 42 years old and although I didn’t keep up with the weather as a youngster, I am 97.29% sure this is the hardest winter I’ve seen. Snow and ice are a drag racer’s enemy and we’ve had […]
