FONTANA, Calif. -- Mike Lang and Paul Wiechmann opened the 40th anniversary of the Southern California Pro Gas Assoc., with class victories, while David Butler won the SoCal Super Street season-opening event with his Chevy Vega.

Lang defeated number one qualifier Val Torres Jr in the Russ Harris Memorial Pro Gas Race final 9.899 to Torres 9.840. Torres was driving the Conroy Brothers '57 Corvette for the first time. Sunday's Champion Cooling Systems Super Sunday Pro Gas Race saw Paul Wiechmann cut a perfect reaction time in the final and run 9.913 to beat Kevin McClelland at 9.936 after a .009 reaction. Hollis Colleasure went to both Pro Gas semifinals over the weekend and will have a narrow point lead over second place Wiechmann going into the next races, scheduled for June 16-17 at Fontana.

David Butler finished second in the SoCal Super Street championship in 2017, but he has an early lead in this year's points battle, as he defeated Paul Giacalone's '55 Chevy in the first race of the year. Butler ran 10.905 for the win, as Giacalone drew a -.005 redlight.
