Chris Chaney wins Stock at 2019 Heartland Nationals
Chris Chaney won his fourth NHRA national event at the Heartland Nationals.
TOPEKA – Chris Chaney drove his classic ’69 Camaro to his first Stock Eliminator win and his fourth overall at the Heartland Nationals. The 2018 Division 5 Stock champion continues to showcase his driving skills in Stock and Super Stock.
In the final round, Chaney grabbed the instant win after opponent Scott Libersher left -.002 early. Chaney was .027 at the tree and ran dead five to his 10.21 dial-in.
Chaney ran almost uncontested to the event win after a string of errors by his opponents. His first round opponent was way late and he received a competition bye in round two after his opponent was a no show. In round three Brenda Grubbs ran four seconds off the pace.
With a bye to the final on the line in his round four match up with Logan Wernet, Wernet was -.001 red. This gave Chris a free pass to the final round.
Congratulations to Chris and his family on their national event triumph.
