SAVAGE REMAINS PERFECT FOLLOWING WEEK 3 OF FRIDAY NIGHT DRAGS

FORT WORTH, Texas (July 11, 2016) – Street Outlaw Division championship leader Trent Savage of Burleson continued his impressive winning streak, winning for the third consecutive week of Friday Night Drags presented by Maaco. 

Savage, driving his 2001 Pontiac Trans Am, remains the only driver to win in all three weeks of Texas Motor Speedway’s summer drag racing series. Savage was one of four previous Friday Night Drags winners during Week 3 that include Aledo’s Chase Prollock in The Speedway Club Tuner Division (2005 Acura RSX); Lucas’ Chris Brown in the Snap-On Tools All-Wheel Division (2013 Nissan GT-R); and Watauga’s Shawnee Haggard in the 4 Wheel Parts Black Smoke Warrior Division (1992 Chevrolet S10). 

Three first-time winners broke through with victories including Lewisville’s Rafayel Khosrovyan in the Reunion Tower Geo-Deck Street Bandit Division (2015 Volkswagen GTI); Flower Mound’s Colin Hundley in the Sportsman Division (1993 Nissan 240SX); and Fort Worth’s Mike Franks in the American Steel Carports Supercar Division (2011 Cadillac CTS-V). 

Winners from Hills Air Support Show-N-Shine include Southlake’s Gary Dilahunty (1955 Chevrolet Bel Air) for Best in Show; Lake Kiowa’s Angie Erwin (1969 Chevrolet Camaro) for Best Classic; and Weatherford’s Harold Walzer (Yamaha V Star 1100) for Best Motorcycle. 

The six-week summer series that converts Texas Motor Speedway’s pit road into a 1/8-mile drag strip continues Friday for Week 4. The gates open each week at 6 p.m. with inspection, practice and Hills Air Support Show-N-Shine beginning at 6:15 p.m. Drag racing competition gets underway at 9:15 p.m.
