Rain tried to win the weekend at Colonial Classic over the weekend, but winners were still able to be crowned after a beautiful race day on Sunday.
Colonial Classic made its way back to Virginia Motorsports Park over the weekend with $5,000 to win on Friday and Sunday, and a big $10,000 to win on Saturday. Racers traveled from all over in hopes to park their ride in the winner’s circle after a long off season.
The crews battled rain all weekend, up until Sunday where the skies finally cleared up and they were able to race.
In Super Pro, Mike Hoff took home the win of the weekend after defeating Gabe Taylor in the final round. Hoff wheeled his ’11 Racetech dragster to a .011 package which was too much for Taylor and his ’20 Maddox dragster to handle.
Kenny Young was the semi-finalist.
In Pro, Nathan Sexton defeated Rick Bowman to take home the trophy after Bowman turned on the red bulb by -.008. Sexton was .016 and ran an 8.364 on his 8.39 dial-in in his ’01 Mustang.
Daniel Duff and Jonathan Martin were the semi-finalists.
