Saturday $20K

Kevin Brannon has added a Doorslammer Pot O’ Gold presented by Summit Racing Equipment $20K Eagle Trophy to his Loose Rocker resume (which is just a tiny part of a rather storied career!) to go along with his St. Patrick’s Classic $10K win in his dragster years ago. Brannon won a barn burner over first time Loose Rocker finalist, John Engleman, by just .005. Laura Bailey and Chris McGuire were the semifinalists.

Sunday $10K

Cory Gulitti bookended an incredible all-star show at the Doorslammer Pot O’ Gold presented by Summit Racing Equipment by earning twin 10K Eagle Trophies. The 10K Warmup race was his first win in a doorcar, but it only took him a day to add number two, with the 10K Finale victory. Gulitti stopped Randy Biddle, Jr. in the finals, who footbraked his way there! 20K winner Kevin Brannon was the lone semifinalist in the 10K Finale.
