Horan ran an ET of 5. These are the fastest and quickest times thus far.
Going into the final round Tony Bartone was in the number 1 spot. When the dust settled at Famoso Raceway in Bakersfield, California, a New Yorker, a Canadian, a couple Arizonians, and a fistful of Californians had won their respective classes at the coolest nostalgia drag race in the world.
The weather in Bakersfield was virtually perfect from the time that qualifying started on Thursday morning to the time that the last of the cars were loaded into their trailers on Sunday afternoon. Droves of fans came by the day and hundreds a thousand plus? The swap meet was huge and diverse as usual, the famed Famoso Grove was filled with cool cars each day, and as they have in years past drag racing luminaries could be found on the track, in the pits, and even in the stands watching the racing.
Like at all good races, there were heavy favorites, dark horses, and once the racing got going there were upsets and non-stop action.
So who won in the nitro classes? Bartone is the owner and driver of the quickest and fastest front engine dragster in history but for whatever reason, the car has never performed consistently after crossing west of the Mississippi River. With that in in their caps, the Bartone team was at Famoso to really show the world what they were capable of and they did so in fine fashion.
Against August, the team leaned on the car and went 5. This allowed a slower 5. Bartone broke through in fine fashion with one nasty rail! On one side was Dan Horan Jr. Horan was the number one qualifier and he looked like it.
