With rain pushing the 1st NHRA race at Galot Motorsports Park in to the 2nd day and 9 tough rounds of competition, Gary Ingold comes out on top. Ingold said, "I would like to thank God first and foremost, Mr. Wells for such an awesome facility, Race Tech Race Cars, Mickey Thompson Tires, Biondo Racing Products, Paul's Transmissions, Aeromotive Fuel Systems, Goodridge Hoses, Motive Gear, and PAR Racing Engines. I would also like to thank, Durant Cottingham, my racing partner, for all of his help and encouragement as well as the staff at Duraleigh Auto Center. Before the first race, we installed two new Biondo double O buttons in both of my Race Tech dragsters, and as you can see, they worked very well! After 22 rounds of racing in one day, I won the first race, and in the second race, I got down to 12 cars with one entry and 6 with the other entry."
