NORWALK -- Veteran drag racer Pat Musi raced to his first NHRA Get Screened America Pro Mod Drag Racing Series victory Sunday at Summit Racing Equipment Motorsports Park.

Musi, who outran Troy Coughlin, Ed Hoover and top qualifier Raymond Commisso in the first three rounds, defeated Brad Personett in the final round. It was Musi's first victory in NHRA competition since 1981, when the New Jersey driver won a Wally in Pro Stock competition at the Gatornationals in Gainesville, Fla.

Musi's Dodge Stratus posted a 5.981 at 239.44 to hold off Personett's hard-charging '68 Camaro, which trailed with a 5.996 at 251.02.

Series points leader Von Smith, winner of three events this season, was upset in the first round by Rickie Smith. Smith leads Danny Rowe by 85 points with three races remaining in the 10 event series.

The NHRA Get Screened America Pro Mod Drag Racing Series continues Sept. 1-6 in Indianapolis at the Mac Tools U.S. Nationals, the world's most prestigious drag race.
