Steve Furr, past world champion, raced through three rounds of Elite Top Dragster competition to meet Kellan Farmer in an all-North Carolina final round. Furr picked up his second consecutive win in his Right Trailers ’13 American dragster with a .009 light and a 3.866 on a 3.85 dial-in. Farmer was closer to his 3.87 dial-in with a 3.875 in his ’20 Race Tech dragster, but he was behind off the starting line with a .042.
And there are more wins!
