LODRS Division 7 at Las Vegas

LODRS Division 7 at Las Vegas

Severance and Leanders lead winners  

Joey Severance, Woodburn, Ore., and Ulf Leanders, Viksjofors, Sweden, took home the wins in Top Alcohol Dragster and Top Alcohol Funny Car respectively at the Short Line Express Market Gambler Shootout at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway on Nov. 9. There was a 25-car field in TAD and 20 in TAFC and to make it into the top eight to qualify was a challenge with the great competition that was in attendance at this event.

Severance picked up his second win in a row after winning the NHRA Toyota Nationals in Las Vegas last weekend. He worked his way through the field and ran 5.382 seconds at 270.32 mph in his final round victory over Mike Strasburg, Lehi, Utah, who smoked the tires off the line and did not make a pass down the track.

With a good pass right down the groove, Severance picked up his second win in the last two weekends in Las Vegas and also scored his 16th divisional win.
