MWDRS CHAMPIONSHIPS GOING DOWN TO THE WIRE
There's going to be a championship battle decided this weekend at the Mid-West Drag Racing Series' final, starting on Friday at Xtreme Raceway Park in Ferris, Texas. Multiple series championships are up in the air as the action kicks off Friday, October 20.
This weekend, Pro Modified veteran Steven Whiteley and Keith Haney will duel in the season's final battle as the two head into the event, separated by only one round of competition. The battle tightened last weekend as the two faced one another in the first race of a doubleheader race weekend at Tulsa Raceway Park's Throwdown in T-Town. In the second event, Haney beat Ed Thornton.
"We knew we had to buckle up and finish these two races in just three days," said Haney of the rain-delayed event. "With the points battles this tight, every single round counts."
Jordyn Macklyn goes into the weekend as the crowned champion, thanks to the victory in the first race in Tulsa, and in the second race, Annie Whiteley took home the title.
Top Dragster points leader Cody Moore beat the rising star Jordan Eperjesi in a clash during the first event. In the second event, Moore once again rose to the occasion over the local favorite, Bob Henry. Moore is sitting pretty with a 63-point advantage over Jimmy Sackuvich as they head into the final event.
The Stroud Safety Pro 4.20 division championship will be decided at the final event as seven points separate Dave Pierce and Derrol Hubbard. Each driver won an event apiece in Tulsa.
had its own share of suspense as Dave Pierce emerged victorious against Travis Cannon in the first race, while D Bar D Racing owner Derrol Hubbard clinched the win over Travis Cannon in the second event. The Pro 4.20 class championship will be decided in Ferris, with just 7 points separating Pierce and Hubbard in a dramatic showdown!
Pat Musi Racing Engines Top Sportsman racer Rod Moore enjoys a commanding lead heading into the weekend.
"Taking just 17 days to contest a third of the season's points races is a colossal challenge," said Event Director Ellen Eschenbacher. "We were incredibly fortunate to have perfect weather, cool evening temperatures, and an exceptional team from both TRP (Tulsa Raceway Park) and MWDRS that made this incredible feat possible!"
This weekend's action promises a thrilling conclusion, with a
winner-takes-all $10,000 purse on Friday night, known as the Ronnie Hobbs Memorial Shootout. Landon Hobbs, Ronnie's son, and Lone Star Corp proudly support the Pro Mods that have been the backbone of the series.
