Comments Off on HARSTELL, MILLES WIN 24TH MOPARS AT THE ROCK MEGA MOPAR ACTION ET TITLES
James Lowe Wins Trophy Class for Fifth Time
ROCKINGHAM – Joseph Harstell of Stanfield, Bret Milles of Red Springs and James Lowe of Colfax were the big winners Saturday in the drag racing portion of the 24th annual Mega Mopar Action’s MOPARS at the Rock event at Rockingham Dragway.
Matt Hensley of Dandridge, Tenn., won the exhibition Hemi Shootout in his 1968 SS/HA Barracuda Hemi a field that included both the Salisbury-based Bob Reed Hemi ‘Cudas and the ’65 SS/BA Dodge of Mike Nelson, Fayetteville.
Harstell drove his 1971 Dodge Dart past the Dodge Daytona of Stephen Yantus of Goosecreek, S.C., to win Top ET. Milles, meanwhile, drove his ’72 Dart to a final round victory over Sanford’s Kevin Locklear to win Footbrake.
Locklear fouled out in the final by .002 seconds after using a .004 package to eliminate Laura Glasscock of Keysville, Va., in the semis. In that race, Locklear had .004 reaction time and was dead-on his 6.720 target.
For Lowe, it was his fifth trophy/street win at Rockingham. He beat Wesley Loflin of Asheboro in Saturday’s final.
Joe Gibbs Racing employee Jason Hinson of China Grove had the quickest time of the Hemi’s, stopping the clocks with a 8.599, 154.27 mph during time trials. Driving the second Bob Reed AA/HA Barracuda, Hinson fouled at the start in both of his matches against Hensley, wasting a 8.639 time against Hensley’s winning time of 8.8818, at 152.26 miles per hour in the final match. Hensley’s best time of the day was a 8.681, 154.67, in his first win over Hinson.
In the car show competition, Carson Mills, of Smithsburg, MD won the Best of Show Classic trophy in his 1969 Dodge Super Bee, Joe Kelly, Clayton, won Best of Show Modern Award in a 2009 Dodge Challenger, Mike Biggers of Monroe won the Best Truck Award in his 2001 RAM 3500, Tim Cunningham’s 1948 Plymouth won the Editors’ Choice Award. The Best Club Participation was won by the Carolina Scat Pack Club and Samantha Mills of Smithsburg MD won the Long Distant Award.
