Several racers stood out during April led by Donovan Williams who won twice at the Capital City Classic winning over $100K in the process. Lucas Walker made some noise in April after winning $30K at the Spring Fling Million leaving off the bottom. Lucas even switched cars midway through the race after a pit accident destroyed his primary ride. Walker also picked up a couple of wins at Beacon Dragway during the month.
Tova Marshall went back-to-back winning at Pine Valley Raceway and at the Six Shooter Showdown at Xtreme Raceway Park. His victory at Xtreme came in the $20,000 Shootout.

Randy Rice made a couple of Top 10 appearances during April after making three straight $5K finals and winning two of the three.
And last but not least was Chris Gulitti who made as many laps in April as anyone. After making 40+ laps at the Spring Fling where he went deep almost every day, Gulitti returned to his home track at won the Houston Raceway Super Pro championship shootout at the NHRA SpringNationals.
