LAS VEGAS – Jeff Bansbach cut a perfect light in the final round of Pro E.T. for his third victory this season as The Strip was host to one of the largest crowds of the E.T. bracket season and 200 mph Pro Mods Saturday night. “I have to thank the crew at The Strip tonight,” Bansbach said. “In the third round we were moving up to the line and the safety crew noticed my opponent was missing some lug nuts. They were doing a great job to catch that.” In the final round of eliminations, Bansbach lined up against July 15 Pro E.T. winner, Randy Holly. After leaving the line on a perfect light, Bansbach went on to complete his pass with an E.T. of 10.420 at 122.69 mph for the victory. “I’ve been working hard all season and trying to keep my ear open to the right people, especially Tim Arden,” Bansbach said. “The perfect light was wonderful. It was great racing in front of a big crowd and seeing everyone get excited when we gave out the Fletcher Jones Chevrolet shirts.” In Pro Mod competition, Las Vegas resident Richard Cross put on a great show for his hometown fans as he qualified number one and battled to the final round of eliminations. In the final round, Cross paired-off against Pro Mod points leader, Danny Rowe. Cross left the starting line first, but his 6.701 E.T. at 212.16 was not enough to beat the 6.613 E.T. at 210.01 mph of Rowe. “I think we put on a great show,” Cross said. “It’s fun to run fast and this is a wonderful track to really push these cars to the limit. In Super Quick competition, Tony Griese Jr. ran a 9.045 E.T. at 142.28 mph to defeat Bob Farnum with his 8.089 E.T. at 164.07 mph. Others winners at The Strip Saturday night were Dwight Machael in Sportsman, Sean Conner in Motorcycle and Monica Zahniser in Street.
