FORT WORTH, Texas (July 5, 2016) – The Street Outlaw Division remains the most competitive class of Friday Night Drags presented by Maaco and despite the strong field of competitors it was Burleson’s Trent Savage who walked away with the division crown for Week 2 of the summer series. 

Savage, driving his 2001 Pontiac Trans Am, earned his second consecutive victory defeating Brock Anders in the final. Savage is the only driver to win in the first two weeks of the competition.
