MARTIN, Mich. --
>From an amazing Top Fuel final to an earth-shattering side-by-side jet truck run to close the evening, Friday's Northern Nitro Jam opener at U.S. 131 Motorsports Park was one for the ages.
While Lagana took the win in Top Fuel, Mike Minick in the "Chi-Town Hustler" Prostalgia Nitro Funny Car had two tremendous passes to take the win in the popular Funny Car class, while Tracy Kile won Nitro Harley and Mike Hilsabeck claimed the Ironman in Fuel Altered Friday at the CarSafe Northern Nitro Jam presented by Perry Harley-Davidson at U.S. 131 Motorsports Park.
Lagana will be trying for the team's quickest-ever pass Saturday night at the same track where the brothers eclipsed so many benchmarks in the past.
In AMSOIL Prostalgia Nitro Funny Car Mike Minick continued his rampant pace in the "Chi-Town Hustler" Dodge Omni, running a 5.780, 250.48 in round one before backing it up with a 5.820, 246.39 to give the Justice, Illinois native his first career Nitro Jam Ironman. Mike McIntire took runner-up honors with a 6.112, 232.78 pass.
Tracy Kile had a de facto victory in Nitro Harley when final round opponent Jay Turner failed to make the call.
