Congratulations to Joe Witherspoon for winning the giant Pro class at the NAPA Auto Parts Ignitor presented by Peterson Chevrolet! In the highly-competitive final round, the `spoon stopped Chad Campbell as mother nature was building a massive thunderhead just south of the track as near 20 mph tailwinds kept things interesting. In the final, Joe hit a .003 against Chad's .002, winning with a 10.88 (10.86 dial)-122.72 against a 10.01 (9.98 dial)-125.25 - in one close race! Leading up to the final, Joe beat Jim Coryat in round one, then stopped Stan Keller (rd. 2), Jerry Hodges (rd. 3), Cody Lane (rd. 4), Troy Pecht (rd. 5), and Campbell in the final. Joe is pictured above with his son Kyle and NHRA Division 6 Director Matt Levonas.
