Sidnei Frigo defeated over Stevie "Fast" Jackson
Frigo ran 5.796-seconds at 256.55 mph in his Itatiba Sao Paulo Brazil Chevrolet Camaro picking up the final round win on a holeshot over Stevie "Fast" Jackson's pass of 5.768 at 251.16.

It marks the third career E3 Spark Plugs NHRA Pro Mod victory for Frigo, who qualified second and also earned round wins over Chip King, Alex Laughlin and Eric Latino .


Sidnei Frigo celebrates his first win this season.
"My team really pulled through today," Frigo stated. "For some reason, our turbo car runs really well in the heat and I wouldn't be mad if it was this in Topeka at our next race. I saw Stevie over there at halftrack and I know that the turbo power really comes on at the top end. All I could think of was that we had him. It was really cool."
