ROCKINGHAM – Fairmont’s Eric Thomas got a win for the door cars Thursday when he outpaced Raleigh’s Gary Ingold in the final round to claim the $20,000 top prize on Day 2 of the SFG Super Bowl of Drag Racing at Rockingham Dragway. The pressure mounts today through Sunday when the winner’s share swells to $100,000. The format remains the same with the door cars and dragsters separated until the late rounds.
Thomas put together a .014 package in the final to turn back Ingold, a Rock regular, who was uncharacteristically .033 off his target number.
