GREAT BEND, Kan. - In the first half of the double header at SRCA Dragstrip and the NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series Cornbelt Classic David Rampy continued his winning ways with his 61st NHRA divisional event win and Mike Town and Mark Grame grabbed their second straight wins at SRCA.

Alabama racer Rampy and Nebraska runner Matt Harris left the line together with .018 second reaction times in Comp Eliminator but Rampy had the power to pull away with a 7.631 second, 152.50 mph pass for the win in his '32 roadster with Harris clocking in at 8.770, 125.90. The win was also Rampy's third divisional of the year to go with this 99 NHRA national event wins.

Jason DeForrest, Andover, Minn., was out on Mike Town, Paola, Kan., in the Super Stock final before Town laid down a 10.805 on the 10.80 dial to take the win and the NHRA Wally trophy by about two feet over the quicker DeForrest at 9.457, 131.93.

Grame, Overland Park, Kan., took the early lead in Super Comp over Michael Miller and held on as Miller could not make up the difference. Grame went 9.077, 182.90 in his '11 dragster to Miller's 9.064, 166.52 in his '10 dragster.

In the Fineline Madcap Top Dragster final round Kendra Larson out of Minnesota was better at both ends of the track to take down Dusty Meyer of Tonganoxie, Kan. Larson tripped the clocks in 7.284 at 179.42 mph for her second series win.

First time winner Monte Weaver celebrated in the winner's circle as he left the line first against Todd Stallbaumer in the Advanced Product Design Top Sportsman. Weaver, Lubbock, Texas, held on for the win with his '63 Corvette running 6.590, 185.77 to Stallbaumer's 7.611, 180.67 out of Seneca, Kan.

In Stock Eliminator, Paul Merolla bagged his first win with a nice pass over the red-lighting Norman Warling; Tim Nicholson was out first in Super Gas but ran too quick to give Butch Kleewein, North Platte, Neb., and his '13 Camaro the win; Rodger Sauder was .007 seconds on the tree then went 11.057 on the 11.05 index for the win in Super Street; and John Fitzpatrick went four rounds for Sportsman Motorcycle trophy over Robert Williams in an all Kansas final.
