Welcome ladies, gentleman, crews, and drivers for race 7 of the 2016 Southern Fryed Drag Tour at Heart of Dixi Drags at Alabama International Dragway in Steele, Alabama. Tonight is the first race of the second half of the season. We currently have a three way tie for first between "ET", Rick, and wisdonm with Bobby only one point behind.

Once again we have lucked out with a dry race night, after a week of rain.The bad news is that it's the coldest day of the week, only in the mid 60's. So without wasting any more time, let's go racing.

Our first pair is fast qualifier and 2013 SFDT champion wisdonm VS Kevin "IAracefan" Sassman.

Wisdonm in his red and blue Ferrari F-40 BIPOLAR. This car has a massive twin turboed 820 cubic inch Ford hemi. Kevin is driving his 1963 Chevrolet Corvette Funny Car for the Uncle Verde racing team.

The drivers do their burn outs and stage. Kevin roars away. Wisdonm screams after him. Then wisdonm's car seems to stutter a little. That is all Kevin needed to pass him and win. Kevin is going to Round 2.

The next pair coming to the line are Dave "Chargin Charlie" Bayer, winner if this yearís Race #3 VS Ruth Truth.

Dave is driving the twin blown Olds powered, four wheel driven Corvair called Unsafe At Any Speed, for the AMB team. Ruth is driving her Potvin-blown, 300CID powered '32 Bantam Altered.

Both drivers do burnouts and stage. Ruth cuts a perfect light and roars off. Dave thunders after her, but is unable to catch the Bantam in time. Ruth is going into Round 2.
