Share:
JOLIET, Ill. ? Bill Reichert in Top Alcohol Dragster and Jay Payne in Top Alcohol Funny Car took their number one qualifying positions straight to the winner?s circle this weekend at the Chicagoland Dodge Dealers NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series event at Route 66 Raceway. Reichert, driving his Bars Leaks sponsored dragster, got a bit of a break in round one when No. 8 qualifier Ed Schmeeckle broke giving the Owosso, Mich., racer the win with a sub-par run of 6.798 seconds at 264.13 mph. Reichert went on to defeat David Wells in a semi-final match-up and then Ken Perry in the Final. Reichert clocked in at 5.430 seconds at 268.76 mph to Perry?s 5.515, 254.86. The win extends Reichert?s North Central Division points lead and should move him ahead of Jeff Wilson in the race for the NHRA Jeg?s Allstar Points title.
