Brinsfield Loses In A Battle Of Record Holders At IHRA Parts Pro North American Nationals

EPPING, NH-- If it were boxing, this would have been the battle for unification of the belt.

The battle was between the record holders of the class and this time elapsed time prevailed.

Brinsfield opened the qualifying with a 6.512/216.51, which was good enough for the 13th spot. He stepped up in a big way during the final session as he carded a 6.396/217.91 and that made him the quickest nitrous car on the premises.

He secured the second spot and his present was a match with Billes. The Canadian was quicker off of the line than the Dylan Mortgage-sponsored, Greensboro, N.C.-based, Brinsfield played a frantic game of catch-up. However, the finish line came too quick as Billes won by a 6.457/219.79 to 6.463/217.98.
