HEBRON, Ohio -- Charlie Westcott of Parma, Mich. , took home the $5,000 purse at the Mopar Hemi Super Stock Challenge today at the NHRA JEGS Northern SPORTSnationals at National Trail Raceway. Westcott piloted his hemi powered vehicle to the victory with a time of 8.680 seconds over Larry Woo who fouled with a red light start handing the win over to Westcott.

Jon Clark, Manager of Mopar Performance said he is always impressed at the level of competition and the great attitude the competitors in the Hemi Super Stock Challenge bring to the table day in and day out.

In the JEGS Top Dragster Shootout John Coughlin was not to be outdone at his own event as he powered his JEGS dragster to the win. In the winner's circle, John was in high spirits as he expressed his great excitement in receiving his first photo check, it didn't hurt that the check was made out to him for 3,000 dollars.
