KENT, Wash. - A handful of champions were crowned this past weekend for the postponed NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series event presented by Bret Chevrolet. The event, originally scheduled for June 15-17 at Pacific Raceways, was postponed due to rain with racers in Comp Eliminator, Super Stock, Stock, and the Sportsman Motorcycle Series presented by Harley Davidson concluding their eliminations at the Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series event in Woodburn, Ore. this past weekend.

In Super Stock it was defending Northwest Division Champion Mark Faul taking the win over Alan Falcone of Seattle. Faul held off Falcone with an 11.041 second pass at 117.00 mph. Toby Lang grabbed the win in Stock Eliminator knocking out brother Jody. Toby ran 11.672 at 105.84 in his '69 Chevelle to Jody's 12.281, 105.77 in his '81 Malibu.
Wade Johnson won in the Sportsman Motorcycle class on his '83 Suzuki with a lap of 8.640 seconds at 139.14 mph over Miles Hauer of Seattle.
