(Idalou, TX) Seasons Last Points Race

Lubbock Dragway finished up their last points race with a bang.

Super Pro- Mike Belk (Plainview, Tx.) finished the season with a vengeance in his `84 Duster by defeating Larry Stokes (Plainview, Tx.) in his `67 Camaro. Belk had the lesser of two evils in a double break out. Eldon Russ (Clovis, N.M.) was the class semi. Car trouble during the season kept Belk from having a shot at the Class title.

Sportsman- Coy Franks (Flomot, Tx.) cut the tree down in the finals and wheeled his `82 Firebird to victory over Chad Guthrie (Floydada, Tx.) with a .006 light and a 9.588 (9.56) to the `73 Novaís .072 light and 10.074 (10.09). In the semis, Gregg Davis (Olton, Tx.) suffered a heart breakiní loss to Franks .013 light advantage to Davisí .067 and a 12.350 (12.35).

Modified- Jerry Cottrell (Lubbock, Tx.) owner of a 2004 Wally trophy finished the season with win number four aboard his `72 Nova.


Street- Street class was a preview of whatí s to come in the `05 season. Freddie Ybarra III (Lorenzo, Tx.) made his first appearance of the season in the Precision Auto Winners Circle. Ybarra in his `67 Camaro broke out by .012 to edge out newcomer Laura Cavazos (Smyer, Tx.) in her `01 Chevy PU who broke out by .024. Diana Stevens (Lubbock, Tx.) was also a newcomer and piloted her v8 Mazda to a third place finish.

Jr. Dragster-Keiri Fergusonís (Hereford, Tx.) extraordinary .001 light and a 9.444 (9.37) was enough to seal the deal over Beth Skeltonís (Hereford, Tx.) .094 light and 12.64 (12.56). Trent Womack (Sundown, Tx.) fought through the tough competitive field to finish in the top three.
