MOORESVILLE, N.C. -- In 2012 a then unknown 17-year-old racer by the name of Corey Manuel came out of nowhere to claim the IHRA World Championship in Quick Rod at the Summit Racing Equipment Tournament of Champions.
Manuel traversed four rounds of competition at Mooresville Dragway ending with a victory over Jamie Farrell to record his second career Pro-Am win. The two competitors produced identical .008 reaction times, but Manuel backed it up on the top end with a 5.708 second pass at 132.63 mph in the 5.70 class while Farrell broke out by -.014.
In a very competitive field of Super Stock and Stock racers, Roanoke, Virginia's Marvin Duanhoo advanced five rounds in his PFA-1 1977 Ford Mustang Super Stocker culminating with a win over Jim Reynolds in the final. Reynolds lit the red light by -.012 to hand over the win. In Stock Wytheville, Virginia native Jamie Holston drove his I/CM '80 Malibu through five rounds ending with a breakout victory over Lee Truell.
Finally one of Division 9's most prolific hitters Greg Slack (Albemarle, N.C.) returned to the winner's circle in Super Rod with a very close win over Ernie Knight. In Hot Rod Kevin McLamb (Maxton, N.C.) wrapped up the day with a win over a red-lighting Cale Lambert.
