Last weekend during the 4-Wide Nationals at zMax Dragway, near Charlotte, Monty Bogan Jr. drove his '67 Camaro to a runner-up finish in Stock Eliminator against Drew Skillman and finished one position better with his '92 Camaro over Joe Santangelo in the Super Stock final.
There was a time when those might be expected results for the four-time Sportsman racing world champion, who often raced up to 36 weekends per year in the late-'90s through early-2000s. But then Bogan backed off from racing to concentrate on building his career.

The day arrived. Maytag/Silverstate Refrigeration Million Dollar Friday, the main event of the K&N Spring Fling Million presented by Optima Batteries. A day which will certainly change the life of one person.
This being Vegas, what better “casino” to place a bet than The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway and first up today was the Brodix Run For The $50,000. For a $50 “bet,” place a dial-in on your car, “pull the handle,” leave the starting line with a perfect .000 reaction time and run dead-on your dial with a “0” gets you a perfect run and a $50,000 check. If no perfect runs are recorded, the best package earns that driver a set of Brodix SR20 cylinder heads. Second place gets a $2,000 check and third place a free entry into the 2020 Spring Fling Million main event. If no one hits the $50K perfect run, the first perfect run in Friday’s elimination will earn that driver $20,000.
