David Latino knows a thing or two about winning at State Capitol Raceway.
Quite frankly there isn't much left for Latino to conquer at SCR.
Other winners from the Renegades season opener were Kamron Wright and Ricky Miller (Top Sportsman), Matt Levatino and David Johns (Top Dragster), David Latino (Super Stock), David Latino and Jody Simoneaux (Stock), Jake Levatino and Laramie Reid (Quick Rod), Buddy Wood and Clayton Nance (Super Rod), Mike Frederick and Tommy Costales (Hot Rod), Jackson Core and Cory Gulitti (Junior Master), Bryant Huesers and Ty Casey (Junior Advanced) and Carson Russell (Junior Beginner).
Other multi-finalists from the Renegades season opener included Hidalgo who visited the Super Stock and Stock finals on Sunday, losing both. Clayton Nance also reached two finals over the weekend, splitting in the Super Rod category.
Kamron Wright highlighted the weekend's quickest categories by taking over where his father left off. Kamron's father Glenn had won a race at SCR in each of the past three seasons, and while Glenn did not reach a final over the weekend, Kamron's win makes it four straight for the Wright family. Wright defeated Matt Crisp behind the wheel of his 2010 GXP.
Renegades Division racers head to San Antonio Raceway for their next IHRA Summit Racing Equipment Pro-Am Tour event April 5-7. The event will be run in conjunction with Nitro Jam.
