Drivers from Ten Racing Series compete for Speedworld Dragstrip’s 2012 “King of the Track”

Wittmann, Arizona (December 8, 2012) — Running for the chance to win a Wally, the top ten competitors from ten different racing series from the 2012 NHRA Summit ET Drag Racing Series did battle on Saturday at Speedworld Dragstrip.

Drag racers from Team Speedworld, the ADRA, F n F Racing, AZ Fastest Street Cars, AZ Grudge Racing, American Drag Car, and AZ S/ST, plus the winners Southwest Heritage Race, the NMCA race, and the WMDRA were eligible to compete for Speedworld Dragstrip’s King of the Track.

After timed runs to dial their cars in, all racers and their cars competed in one bracket race, narrowing down the field to see who would be the 2012 King.

A Round 1 upset saw NHRA Champion Dave Muller and his Camaro go out to Mike Zimmerman and his Dodge Dart.  After 6 rounds of eliminations, it was Travis Wallace and Danny Walker paired at the line for the final round and a chance to be the King of the Track.

With Walker in the right lane running on a 11.11 dial and Wallace in the left lane running on a 10.32 dial, the cars staged on the starting line for the final run of the day.  Walker was away first, cutting a .0300 light.  Travis’ tree was the next to drop.  Unfortunately, Travis launched and went red by .0235.  Walker ran an 11.114 at 134.13 mph on his Wally winning run.

Congratulations to Danny Walker on the Wally and earning the right to be the 2012 Speedworld Dragstrip King of the Track!

Henry Leyba won the gambler after Bong broke in the third round and couldn’t make it back to the starting line.  Congratulations Henry!
