RACER SPOTLIGHT: JACOB ROGERS

Congratulations to 16 year old Jacob Rogers for winning the Mopar Cup at the Best of Detroit event on Sunday, September 28th. The High School student from Middleton drove his `74 Dart out to the raceway in the rain and then proceeded to win four straight rounds to collect top honors for all the Mopars. In the final, pictured, he ran 8.59 on an 8.60 dial in to defeat a red-lighting Clyde Hughes who finished at 7.88 (7.87 dial) with his `67 Belvedere. Earlier in eliminations he defeated Bret Ward with a 8.62 (8.62 dial), then Kevin Petty with a 8.57 (8.62 dial), and a 8.60 (8.56 dial) over step father Richard Williams.

Great job Jacob in scoring the big Detroit title with your Dart!
