Severance, Hough Take Lucas Oil Wins

In the final results from Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park and the NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series on March 2, Joey Severance, Woodburn, Ore., and Brian Hough, Junction City, Ore., took home the wins in Top Alcohol Dragster and Top Alcohol Funny Car respectively.

Severance (near lane) worked his way through the field and ran 5.390 seconds at 230.21 mph in his final round victory over Johnny Ahten, Santa Clarita, Calif., whose time was disallowed due to a technical infraction with his fuel. Severance qualified #3 and had the early lead in the final as he picked up his 14th regional event win.

Johnny Ahten’s fuel reportedly came up .5% too high and his final-round run was thrown out.
