BAYTOWN, Texas -

Jim Whiteley
Jim Whiteley drove to victory on Sunday during the E3 Spark Plugs NHRA Pro Mod Drag Racing Series presented by J&A Service portion of the NHRA SpringNationals at Royal Purple Raceway. This weekend's Pro Mod racing, presented by Tige Boats, is the second of 12 events this season.

Whiteley ran a 5.834-second pass at 239.14 mph in his J&A Services 1969 Yenko Camaro to take down Rick Hord in the final round and earn his first victory since Houston 2016 and second of his career. He defeated Mike Castellana, Khalid AlBalooshi and Steve Jackson on his way to the win.

"This is very special," Whiteley stated. "We've tested and worked our butt off here the last two months. We've definitely got a hot rod here. Beating Stevie was just icing on the cake today."

Whiteley finished the 2017 season 15th in the points standings and leaves the event in the No. 2 spot in pursuit of his first championship.

The E3 Spark Plugs NHRA Pro Mod Drag Racing Series presented by J&A Service continues at the NGK Spark Plugs NHRA Four-Wide Nationals in Charlotte, N.C. on April 27-29.
