Marty Stinnett, the world’s quickest man on 275 Drag Radials, took his Southern Speed tuned Ford Mustang all the way to the winner’s circle for the event win in 28s vs. 275s! Stinnett, based out of Kuttawa, KY, took his Jeff Burns Racing Engines/Turbo by Garrett sponsored Mustang all the way through the qualifying sessions to end up qualified #3 with a 4.45 @ 177mph blast. Stinnett faced off with good friend, Alex Shows, in the final round where they chose to split the purse but Stinnett was awarded the win due to Shows’ having engine problems and chose not to make the call for the final round. Glen Jones qualified in at the #19 slot with a 4.71 but was defeated in Round 1 of Eliminations by Patrick Clenney on a slight holeshot, 4.72 to Jones’ 4.71.
