Fortune Hunters Big Buck Series Finals from the World Series of Drag Racing

Tuesday, August 30, 2016
As the World Series of Drag Racing presented by Sunoco and the Memphis Convention and Visitors Bureau featuring the Fortune Hunter's Big Buck Series' final event of the year - we want to thank everyone for their support and understanding as we shifted schedules a few times.   On Saturday splitting a round midway through it is never the desired action, but we appreciate everyone's understanding for the shift.  It was a great weekend and we couldn't grow without you.  #AlwaysImproving #WSOD #SUNOCO #ILOVEMEMPHIS


The recap of the finals -

Friday would pair Johnny Ezell and Wes May to battle it out for the $5,000 - Ezell would take the win as May was a little too quick on the tree with a .004 red.  Ezell would run a 4.802 on a 4.80 dial in with a .013 reaction time.

Saturday, multiple finals took place:

In Box the final would see J.R. Barclay paired against Cody Harger - it would be a repeat of Friday night with Harger going .004 red and Barclay taking the win in the $10,000 to win.

7.0 Index:  The final would see David Smith paired against Tadd Gates - Smith would take the win with a .021 reaction time running a 7.007.

6.50 Index:  The final would see Rick Taylor paired against Cliff Hubbard - Taylor would take the win with a .027 reaction time with both drivers breaking out.

6.0 Index:  The final would see Chad Roach paired against Shannon Collins -  Roach would take the win with a .033 reaction time with both drivers breaking out.

Sunday, the final day of the Fortune Hunters:

Box class would see Ron Minton paired against Jason McKague with McKague taking the win with a .015 reaction time running a 4.645 on a 4.64.  Minton had it on the tree and gave it back on the top end.

6.0 Index:  The final would be a repeat appearance of Saturday with Chad Roach paired against Shannon Collins.  Roach would be the repeat winner with a .034 reaction time, with both drivers breaking out.

7.0 Index:  The day of repeats at Tadd Gates and David Smith would meet again in the 2nd final in as many days.  Gates would take the win with a .012 reaction time running a 7.003 - Smith had it on the tree and broke out on the top end.

6.5 Index:  Again with a repeat pair in the finals of Cliff Hubbard and Rick Taylor - it would be who broke out the lease - Taylor with a .018 reaction time would run a 6.477 to Hubbard's winning run of a 6.479 with a .031 reaction time.   

7.5 Index:  The 7.5 on Sunday would be a solo run in the finals with Wes Neely taking the win.
