Jason Rupert returned to his winning ways taking out Kris Krabill in the final round for the NHRA
Hot Rod Heritage Series event at Mission Raceway Park and the Lucas Oil National Open this past
The Yorba Linda racer and 2012 NHRA series champion came out of the box to qualifying No. 1 on
Saturday with a 5.731-second lap at 252.88 mph followed by Cameron Ferre at 5.739 and Krabill in
third at 5.76.
Rupert had a bye in round 1 when Mark Hentges hurt his motor in qualifying and could not make the
call. Rupert then clicked off the two best runs of the event taking out Dan Horan in his semifinal
match up with a 5.715 and a 5.783 in the final to defeat Krabill.
Krabill beat point's leader Tim Boychuk in round 1 then took out Ferre in round 2.
Up next for the NHRA Hot Rod Heritage Series is the Pepsi Nightfire Nationals at Firebird Raceway
in Boise, Idaho, August 8-11.
