Welcome ladies, gentlemen, kids of all ages, crews, and drivers to Race #11 of the SNRA 2017 Southern Fryed Drag Tour here at the For the Fans Classic at Yellow River Dragstrip in Covington, Georgia, the most infamous dragstrip of them all.

It has been a wonderful week, weather wise, being in the mid 80's. That is until today. It is still in the 80's, but it started raining off and on today. It stopped rainng right after qualifying stopped. Let's hope it's done for tonight.

The lead for the 2017 Southern Fryed Drag Tour championship has been very close all season, with Kevin and Otto swapping first place several times. Only two drivers have been mathematically eliminated with only 2 more races to go.

The track is slightly damp, but let's not waste time. So let's bring out our first pair, Winner of Races #4 and 10, Kevin Sassman. Kevin driving his Dodge Red Ram hemi powered Fiat Topolino prepped by the Uncle Verde race team and sponsored by Hellion Speed Equipment VS winner of Races #7 and #9, reining 2016 Southern Fryed Drag Tour champion, L. Edward "ET" Foot. "ET" is driving the 392 Cu. In. Dodge Hemi powered "Tin Box" B/Fuel Competition Coupe, for the Historic Racing Associates.

Both drivers warm their tires and gingerly stage. "ET" roars away with a .5 second advantage. Kevin charges after him but looses traction at the 100 foot mark. "ET" will advance into Round 2.

Has a checkered past.

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

Coming up next are DTD Motorsports teammates, the winner of Races 2, 5, and 6, rookie Otto Varoom. Otto is driving the 425 C.I.blown Buick Nailhead, Alky powered "what The----Altered" VS the winner of Race #1 Dirttrack Dave. Dave will be driving his 1972 Nova SS-Pro stock powered by a 454 big block sponsored by Valvoline Oil, called Old Poo.

Both drivers do burnouts and stage. Dave thunders away with a 2.5 second head start. Otto waits, then charges after him, but, just like Kevin, looses traction and has to back off. Dave wins and will move into Round 2.


Our final pair in Round 1 will be the winner of Races #3 and #8, Paul D. "Speed Merchant" Smith. Speed is driving the 310 Cu. In. Aluminum Small Block "Chevy" powered, "Little Feather" Junior Fuel Dragster, prepared by last year’s champions, Historic Racing Associates VS this year’s hard luck driver, Barry Kuta. Barry is driving the beautiful SVO Mustang II Trubo powered by 2,300cc's. Prepped by DIRT and sponsored by the Durango BBQ and grill and Jameson Irish Whiskey.

The drivers prep their tires and stage. Barry takes off with a 2.8 second advantage. Speed tries to wait but red lights. Barry is the last to move into Round 2.


That concludes round one. Come back after our short break, for more exciting action.

Has a checkered past.

Welcome ladies, gentlemen, kids of all ages, crews, and drivers to Race #11 of the SNRA 2017 Southern Fryed Drag Tour here at the For the Fans Classic at Yellow River Dragstrip in Covington, Georgia.

After that exciting round 1, which favored the underdogs, we can't wait to see the round 2 action. The rain is holding so let's go racing.


Our first driver of Round 2 is "ET". He will be making a single car pass.

"ET" warms his tires and stages. "ET" charges off and makes a clean pass and will move on to the final round.


Up next is Rick VS Kevin.

The drivers prep their tires and stage. Dave roars away with a .8 second lead. Barry gets the Stang to hook up, and he runs down Old Poo for the win. Barry will also be in the final.


That concludes the semi-final round. We will be right back for the final round, after a short break.

Has a checkered past.

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

Both drivers warm their tires and slowly approach the lights. They stage. Barry is off with a 2 second advantage. "ET" does a wheelie and is not to be denied. "ET" wins by .002 seconds. To win the 2017 For the Fans Classic.


Please join me in congratulating “ET” and the Historic Racing Associates team for being the 2017 For The Fans champion. fbr

There is a reason that "ET" is the reining 2016 Southern Fryed Drag Tour champion. He has won 3 out of the 10 races that he has run this year. He would at least be in 3rd place, if he had run all 11. maddr

But, either Kevin or Otto will be the 2017 SFDT champion.

Has a checkered past.
