TROY OWEN WINS AA/SUPERCHARGED TITLE AT FIREBIRD OLDIES RACE

Troy Owen conquered the AA/Supercharged Big Sky Championships at the Snap On Oldies But Goodies Drags at Firebird. In the final round, the Albany, Oregon `41 Willys coupe recorded a 6.92 elapsed time at 201.79 miles per hour. The runner-up was Mike Molea, Grants Pass, Ore., who redlighted, finishing at 7.34-191.81 with his `33 Willys coupe. Earlier in the day Owen set low e.t. of the meet at 6.86 seconds (and made five consecutive 6-second performances during the two-day event with his “Legends” coupe).

The event featured the warmest weather of the season as temperatures soared into the low 90’s under partly cloudy skies as racers from six states and Canada attended the 32-year old event.

In one of the more remarkable racing feats in recent memory, Mark Kidd, Twin Falls, won his fourth consecutive Pro title, further increasing his lead in the Boise Muffler point’s series. Kidd defeated John Johnson Jr., from Caldwell who redlighted away his opportunity in the Pro final.
