SMITH WINS SECOND STRAIGHT NHRA GET SCREENED AMERICA PRO MOD DRAG RACING SERIES EVENT

BRISTOL, Tenn. -- Von Smith won his second straight NHRA Get Screened America Pro Mod Drag Racing Series race in his Barwa/Al-Anabi Racing '68 Camaro to take command of the points lead.

In the finals, Smith gave up 12-hundredths to Jay Payne at the tree, but he tracked him down with a 5.994 at 241.54 to Payne's 6.039 at 240.36 in his '68 Camaro. He now leads second-place Danny Rowe by 92 points.

Smith qualified fifth, but because of a series upsets on his half of the ladder he didn't meet a higher-qualified driver until the final when he was matched up against No. 2 qualifier Payne.

En route to the final, Smith defeated No. 12 qualifier Tony Pontieri, No. 13 Rick Stivers and No. 8 Ray Commisso.

The NHRA Get Screened America Pro Mod Drag Racing Series will be back on the track next weekend during the Summit Racing Equipment NHRA Nationals in Norwalk, Ohio.
