Jimmy DeFrank had an impressive weekend on April 10-12 and doubled-up at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway in Super Stock and Stock while Joey Severance picked up his fifthTop Alcohol Dragster win at Las Vegas and Annie Whiteley scores her second National event win.

DeFrank, Chatsworth, Calif., first worked his way through the field in Super Stock and ran a winning run of 9.070 seconds at 148.79 mph. He faced off against Les Norton, South Jordan, Utah, who had a runner up finish of 9.394 seconds at 140.25 mph. DeFrank then went into the final against Brad Burton, Snohomish, Wash., in Stock and posted a winning run of 10.941 seconds at 118.93 mph. This was DeFrank’s 15th win and has had two in Stock. This was not the first time that DeFrank has doubled-up. His first time was at the 2013 Winternationals and won in both Super Stock and Stock.

Severance (near lane), Woodburn, Ore., worked his way through the field and ran 5.416 seconds at 267.16 mph in his final round victory over Megan McKernan, Sierra Madre, Calif., who clocked in at 5.416 seconds, 269.51 mph.
