Mike Coltrin struck gold at the NAPA Ignitor Opener - Lucas Oil Drag Race Series. The Super Gas champion started off his day with a perfect light (.000) against Kevin Griffiths, winning with a 10.10 (10.15 index) against a further under 10.05. In round two, Coltrin beat Gene Kelly with a .024 to .015 start line deficit, winning with a 10.15 to a 10.16 on the fixed 10.15 SG index. Round three saw Coltrin hit another perfect 10.15 with a .036 to knock out a too quick 10.03 (.039 r.t.) by Gene Brown, followed up with a .014 to .029 r.t.'s, 10.126 against a further under 10.120 by Phil Gilbert to advance to the final, above. With a nearly 20 mph tailwind trying to blow in huge thunderheads to the south, Coltrin beat the rain by about 10 minutes (before it started sprinkling) with a 10. 13 to 10.10 by John Whitmore who redlighted by -.003 in the final. Congratulations to Mike Coltrin, family and friends for winning the Division 6 opener!
