Southeast Division Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series opening round. Treadwell took out Arnie Martel of
Tewksbury, Mass., in the final of Comp Eliminator. Martel advanced to is second final round in
Super Stock where John Kakalecik, Whitehouse Station, N.J., won in his '70 Barracuda. Ed
Richardson and Mike Riggs also won from the home state. Richardson, Bradenton, Fla., won in Super
Comp and Riggs won out of Ocala, Fla., in Super Street. Each winner pocketed their share of the
event purse and contingency postings along with bragging rights and the champion's trophy.
The event was the first of six in the Southeast Division where racers earn points toward division,
regional and national championships. Southeast Division racers head about an hour north to
Gainesville Raceway for their next Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series event where they will be joined by
the 250 mph Top Alcohol Dragsters and Funny Cars for their opening round of the 2012 season. The
Top Sportsman finals and the final three rounds of Top Dragster eliminations for this event will be
