Welcome ladies, gentleman, crews, and drivers for Race #9 of the 2016 Southern Fried Nationals at Rockingham Dragway, in Rockingham, North Carolina. We finally have some nice warm weather with todayís highs in the 70ís and current temps in the mid 70ís.

We have completed 2/3 of the season. In our first eight events of 2016 we have had seven different winners. There is only 8 points separating the top 5, with "ET" back at the top So, let's go racing and see who will be the Spring Thunder champion.

Our first pairing tonight is the winner of Race #5, Rick, driving a 383 c.i. Hilborn injected small block Chevy powered 1941 Willys pick-up for the Johnson Racing and Whoopee Parlor team.

VS

The ever fast, but so far unlucky, Paul D. "Speed Merchant" Smith driving his beautiful blown Hemi powered "Terrible Toppolino" Fiat Fuel Coupe for the Historic Racing Associates team.

Both stage, after warming their tires. Rick roars away with a 2 second head start. Speed thunders after him and is able to pass him for the win. Speed will go to Round 2.

Has a checkered past.

Stand on it....brakes only slow yoou down.
