CECIL, Ga. - Jimmy Hidalgo Jr. raced his way into the final round in not one by two classes this weekend for the NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series at South Georgia Motorsports Park and took home the win in Stock Eliminator.

The second-generation driver, Hidalgo worked his way through the fields in both Stock and Super Stock and posted a solid .024 second package in Stock to take out Daniel Young, Palm Harbor, Fla., for the first half of the possible double-up. Young ran too quick as he tried to chase Hidalgo down.

In the Super Stock final, Hidalgo, Donaldsonville, La., faced off with Jeff Longhany, Wade, N.C., who got the jump off the start and took the win as Hidalgo was forced to run too quick and broke out. Longhany posted a 9.842 second lap at 133.91 mph.

Van Puckett, Monroe, Ga., returned to the winner's circle for the first time since 2009 in taking the Comp Eliminator trophy over Jim Kimbrough, while Mark Jones and David Marcus each won for the first time in the Lucas Oil Series. Puckett wheeled his '05 Cavalier to an 8.286, 163.26 mph run as Kimbrough slowed with problems. Jones and Marcus both won via the starting line with Jones taking the holeshot in the Hickory Trailers Top Dragster to defeat Elie McGee and Marcus took the win in Super Gas as James Justice left early with a red light. Jones went 6.259, 223.25 on his victory lap and Marcus was 9.909 on the 9.90 index to capture the win.

Wrapping up the weekend's winners were Dylan Stott with a big holeshot over Bruce Duncan for the Stott's Ford Top Sportsman crown; Ray Miller III grabbed his second win of the year to oust Buck Holmes in Super Comp; and Matt Weston won on a double breakout over Jesse McKnight in Super Street.

The NHRA Summit Jr., Drag Racing League was also in action this weekend at South Georgia with Michael Carpenter leading the charge with a win in the 13-17 year old class. Carpenter beat out Carson Brown with a lap of 8.012 at 77.67. Dylan MacNicol downed Hayden Miller in the 6-9 class and Budd Trammel II upended Wyatt Palmatier in the 10-12.
