Congratulations to both Sean Shaffer and Karisa Windley for sweeping top honors at the Spring Fling on Wednesday, April 3, 2024, at The Strip in Las Vegas, Nev. It was impressive seeing two Idaho racers earn titles in Sin City.

Competing in one of the biggest bracket events in the entire country, Shaffer put together a barrage of impressive runs to defeat Greg Hicks (who redlit in the final) to earn the posted cash prize of $30,000. Shaffer, pictured following his victory at the Nightfire Nationals last August, competed with his Dragster that has proven to be one tough machine when big money is on the line.

In the Pro category, Karisa Windley successfully earned top honors in the no box class with her beautiful Camaro. She is pictured here with her husband Ken following a win he captured at the 2021 Season Opener at Firebird.

Racing continues Thursday thru Saturday. It’ll be interesting to see if more racers from the Gem state find their way onto victory lane (considering there is quite a number of competitors who have made the trip south from their Firebird home base this week).
