Easy win for Trevor Colon at The Strip at LVMS
Three nights of racing this week at The Strip

LAS VEGAS -Trevor Colon easily took the Import Eliminator win Friday night at The Strip, when opponent Josh Hill failed to appear at the starting line.

Colon took advantage of his lack of competition with a .931-sec. reaction time and topped out at 94.30 mph. No reason was given on Hill's no-show.

Boulder City's Nick Ariotti dominated the High School division, beating Shawn Anderson. Both piloted 1996 Chevrolet S10, V-6 pickup trucks. Despite Anderson's near-perfect reaction time of .564 sec., Ariotti crossed the finish line first, reaching 67.20 mph. Anderson maxed out at 66.58 mph.

Reaching 122.71 mph, Perryn Torres won the Gambler division in a 1967 Chevrolet Camaro over second-place finisher Rob Strait.

This week marks the first of many for the newest division at The Strip, Street Muscle Trophy Eliminator. Import Eliminators are also scheduled to compete.
