Drag Racing Nationals: FWD Class Qualifying & Elimination Rounds - Fontana, California 2018

Added by AutomotiveUploads
Drag Racing Nationals FWD Class Qualifying and Elimination Round Coverage! It is not very often a handful of East Coast racers pack up and head west to throw down. The DRN team put in the work to make this event possible and it was one for the history books!
Nineteen cars competed in two rounds of qualifying to see how they would face off during Elimination rounds. Nelsito of Chapulin Performance put down a 8.29 pass securing that top spot on his first hit, Vinny D was in second with a 8.45 pass.
Elimination rounds kicked off with a lot of great matchup's after a small drivers meeting. Fastest side by side race of the weekend, Chapulin and Ramey- 8.25 for Chapulin and 8.30 for Ramey. What a show that was! Going into the quarter finals there was 4 East Coast cars left and 4 west coast cars. The East coast put in work though and the semi finals was Chapulin vs Rafa and Vinny vs Greg Christensen, 3 east -1 west.
Unfortunately Greg had an issue after his quarter final win so Vinny had the by run into the finals, Chapulin eliminated Rafa with a 8.27 pass. It was Vinny and Chapulin in the finals.
Chapulin was throwing low 8 second passes up all weekend. Vinny had gone a 8.37 in the quarter finals over Aaron. The number 1 and number 2 qualifier facing off in the finals always makes for a great show and that is just what it was! Vinny 8.31 at 172mph over Chapulins 8.45 at 158mph - Congrats to Vinny D on the Win!

All of these Racers deserve a round of applause for the performance and show they put on this weekend. Everyone was able to compete and have fun doing so. A lot of sportsmanship and good times that we will all have forever. Thank you to the DRN team for hosting this event!
