2017 NHRA GATORNATIONALS - EVENT RESULTS

TREADWELL’S ASCENT IN COMP CONTINUES

Despite riding a wave of success that has made her a force to be reckoned with during the last year, Jenny Treadwell remains humble and appreciative of simply being able to make a competitive pass down a dragstrip.

"It's pretty amazing. It's what I've always wanted to do," said Treadwell. "I grew up attending races with Dad and wanting to be a racer."

Treadwell, however, didn't attend races as a fan. Instead, she did it as a crewmember for her father, Glen Treadwell, who has had a successful racing career.

FINAL RESULTS FROM THE 23RD ANNUAL NITTO TIRE NMRA SPRING BREAK SHOOTOUT

For the twenty-third time in a row, Mustang drag racers converged on Bradenton Motorsports Park to shake the winter blues and kick-off the NMRA Keystone Drag Racing Series. The annual pilgrimage from parts across North America, and even Germany, is for the Nitto Tire NMRA Spring Break Shootout, presented by Muscle Mustangs & Fast Fords. The first event of this six-race series for 2017 was nothing short of fast fun with record-breaking performances on the drag strip, as well as in the spectator stands with a near capacity crowd on Saturday. The kick-off event always features many specialty shootouts including the historic JLT Performance Spring Break Shootout—home of the wildest Mustang street cars.

The quickest and fastest cars on property belong in VP Racing Fuels Street Outlaw, as a wild assortment of small-tire heroes made up an 11-car field. The number-one qualifier was Manny Buginga, who set the all-time quickest run in class history with a 4.33 elapsed time at a questionable 177 mph, a high speed mark that was never run again. He finished runner-up to Charlie Cooper in an anti-climatic finale—Buginga spun the tires and Cooper ran 4.369 at 169.68 mph to take his first career NMRA victory.
