Nick Bowman became the first No Box racer to win an International Hot Rod Association (IHRA) Summit
Sportsman Spectacular race on Saturday at Keystone Raceway Park.
Bowman from Export, Pa., doubled up with the Moser Engineering Saturday $10,000-to-win race and
earning a $1,000 bonus as the final No Box racer. He also won a uniquely designed helmet by Jerron
Settles from Imagine That Customs.
His sixth-round opponent red-lighted and then he ran a 6.790 elapsed time on a 6.79 dial-in in the
seventh round. In the final, Bowman was .03 slower than Andy Conrath from Pleasant Unity, Pa., at
the tree, but Conrath broke out by .006 on his dial-in, while Bowman went 6.789 on a 6.78 dial-in.
Bowman had earlier taken the No Box win with a .012 reaction time and a 6.783 against a 6.79
dial-in. Runner-up Jeff Stewart of Fairmont, W.Va., was slightly slower .014 at the start and ran a
7.259 against a 7.27 dial-in.
In the Junior Dragster 7-11 category, Jake Harvanek from Cheswick, Pa., matched his 8.94 dial-in to
overcome Nicholas Abruzzi from Warren, Ohio. Abruzzi had the better reaction time .052 to .153 for
Grace Rowe from Marengo, Ohio captured the Junior Dragster 12-17 victory with a .063 reaction time
and a 7.915 elapsed time. Kyle Beno from LaGrange, Ohio finished with .079 reaction time and a
7.932 elapsed time.
Racing continues today with a $5,000-to-win top prize and several round prizes and contingency
bonuses on the line.
