MILLINGTON, Tenn. -- The racing excitement heated up over the weekend as the fifth race of the 2014 Summit Bracket Racing Series presented by COMP Cams hit Memphis International Raceway (MIR). The races produced another first time winner, a sweep of the B&B Towing Footbrake and R.T. Turbines D.O.T. Street classes and some gains in the point standings.

Leigh Hubbard, sister of IHRA Seven-Time World Champion in Top Fuel, Clay Millican, picked up her first career event win in the Rick's Powder Coating Super Pro and Todd Berry swept the B&B Towing Footbrake and R.T. Turbines D.O.T. Street Saturday night.

The points battle is heating up as Leigh Hubbard advanced 12 spots to fourth and Mark Meadows moved up one spot to third in the Rick's Powder Coating Super Pro class. Drew Mann Tracey made some big gains in the R.T. Turbines Jr. Dragsters as he closed the gap from 54 to 12 points and Sophie Newberry jumped from ninth to sixth in the point standings.

"It was exciting to be a part of Leigh's first career win and see Todd take home two championship plaques," remarked Paul Cartwright, Director of Operations. "Leigh is making her first full season run at the Championship in Rick's Powder Coating Super Pro Class so this was a great win for her tonight. It was a great night of racing all around."
