SATURDAY MATCH RACING - RADFORD, VA.

The largest car count in the history of three-year-old Motor Mile
Dragway in Radford, VA, made for some great racing in the track's Mean
16 event. The new format that splits the 16 qualifiers into a top and a
bottom half was a great hit among the competitors.

Because of the number of cars attempting to qualify for the 16
spots, track officials also added a third 8-car bracket as a
consolation race.
In addition to the Mean 16 and consolation races, Matt Hagan and Mike
Janis provided a best 2 out of 3 match race for the Saturday crowd.

PRO TOP OUTLAWS RECAP - KENTUCKY

Last weekend in London, Kentucky at the Bluegrass Nationals presented
by London Flyer Buggies Unlimited, the Pro Top Outlaws put on an unbelievable
show.  Over 20 cars turned out for the event and after 2 rounds of qualifying
the bump for the 16-car field was set at 4.19
seconds.

The bump for the Pro Top Outlaw class (the quickest 8
qualified cars) was just 4.08 seconds for the 1/8th mile event. 
Brandon Booher picked up the number one spot with a pass of 3.90 at 183 MPH.  In
the first round, 6 of the 8 cars down the eighth mile ran sub 4-second passes
and Booher and Phil Esz both thundered down the track with 3.89 ETs.  The
exciting action continued throughout the race when Phil Esz (3.88) eventually
picked up the first win of the season by taking out Anthony Trauth (3.92) in the
final round.  With the win, Esz, last years PTO Champion, has taken the early
lead in 2007 points chase.

can turn the event into "Hotlanta."
