Tucson NHRA Lucas Oil Division 7 Points Race by Agent 1320 Report

NHRA Lucas Oil

Tucson, ARIZ. – Cody Lane enhanced his name and reputation during a brief 10 day sojourn in Arizona. Sunday, March 3, Lane won his second NHRA Wally, driving the Hancock – Lane Cobalt to victory in Super Stock! Last week at the Arizona Nationals, Lane stopped all comers in Stock, with the team’s wild wheel standing Corvette for the Gold.

A large number of Division 7 points chasers were joined by the always present array of northern racers who are escaping the cold snap in Canada & Alaska.

People like Dan Lafferty from Wendell, ID who claimed the Top Sportsman title with his beautiful ’68 Camaro. Or long time racer, Ralph Van Paipegham, the Competition Eliminator winner also from the potato state.

Locals were proudly represented by Top Dragster winner Chuck Phelps who topped 57 runners for the highly contested title. Chuck hails from Chandler AZ where the AZ Nationals were held last week.

Stock Eliminator was hauled home to Telluride, CO by a ‘feel good’ racer John Dourlet. He met and defeated #1 Stock qualifier, Al Corda on his road to the title.

While Ray Cordiero won the wild Super Gas title.

Sportsman Cycle went home to Lemon Grove, CA with Reggie Mackay, and the entire crew with Garcia Racing won the ‘Best’ Appearing Crew award.
