PERSONETT WINS NHRA LAS VEGAS NATIONALS; SMITH CLAIMS GET SCREENED AMERICA PRO MOD SERIES WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP TITLE

LAS VEGAS -- Brad Personett raced to his second victory of the NHRA Get Screened America Pro Mod Series Sunday at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Meanwhile, Tennessee driver Von Smith clinched the inaugural series championship title in the NHRA's newest national touring series.

Personett defeated top qualifier Melanie Troxel in the final round. Personett powered his turbocharged '68 Personett Performance '68 Camaro to a run of 5.859 seconds at 254.57 mph to hold off the hard-charging Troxel, who trailed with a 5.984 at 244.69 in her In-N-Out Burger '68 Camaro.

With the victory, Personett, who also defeated Joe Baker, Roger Burgess and Jay Payne in earlier rounds, moved to third in the final point standings.

Smith, who claimed the $50,000 champion's prize after he took the tree in the first round of eliminations, eventually lost in the quarterfinals in his Barwa/Al-Anabi Racing '68 Camaro. Smith claimed victories at St. Louis, Englishtown, N.J. and Bristol, Tenn. during the season to earn the championship title.

The remainder of the top five points finishers are second place Danny Rowe, fourth place Troy Coughlin and race runner-up Troxel in fifth.
