Lowe, Teachey, Butler win Top E.T. titles at The Rock

ROCKINGHAM — Raeford’s David Lowe made a narrow .003 of a second starting line advantage hold up for a final round victory over St. Paul’s William Brewer Sunday to win the Top ET championship on the final day of the Yuengling Carolina Power Fest 2 at Rockingham Dragway.

Bryan Butler won the Top E.T. championship Friday night at the Rockingham Dragway.

Lowe coupled a .006 of a second reaction time with a time of 6.380 against a target time of 6.360.  Whitley answered with a solid .009 of a second reaction and a 6.760 against a 6.740 target in one of the closest finals of the weekend.

Other winners in the premier bracket category were Barry Teachey II of Beulaville and Bryan Butler of Donald, S.C.  Teachey, at the wheel of a 1964 Ford Falcon, beat Eric Thomas of Fairmont in a rare all-door car final round on Saturday while Butler got the opening win on Friday.

One of the most impressive single runs of the weekend was that turned in by Junior Dragster driver Nick Weaver of Sanford in Sunday’s third round.  Weaver coupled a .001 reaction time with a track time of 8.456 on an 8.450 target – a .007 package.

Unfortunately, he pushed the Tree a little too far in the semifinals and lost to eventual Junior champ Kaylee Creech of Clayton.

Creech not only ruined Weaver’s day, she did the same to fellow Claytonite Blane Parrish when she beat him in Sunday’s final, denying Parrish a double after he had won the first Junior race on Saturday.

Footbrake winners were Brandon White of Hillsville, Va. (Sunday), Wesley Roberts of Benson (Saturday) and Art Laselle of Fayetteville (Friday).

In the Friday Footbrake final, Laselle ran dead-on his 6.620 target number.  So did rival David Sears of Holly Spring, who ran 5.960 on a 5.960.  The difference?  Laselle’s .055 reaction time to .061 for Sears, producing a final margin of just .006 of a second.
