MEDEISIS, KELLEY EARN JR. DRAGSTER CHALLENGE WINS

Share:

JOLIET, IL. – Cody Medeisis earned a truckload of bragging rights with his NHRA Jr. Dragster Challenge Modified Jr. win on Saturday.

And he celebrated by jokingly leaping into the arms of the driver he’d just beaten, Briana Sevik, in the Winner’s Circle.

Medeisis, 14, of New Lenox, Ill. drove his 2006 Mike Boss junior dragster to a 7.964-second finish at 80.25 mph to Sevik’s 8.025 at 81.19. With this win, Medeisis took his sister Nichole’s place atop the season point standings.

Sevik, 17, of Palos Hills, Ill. has known Medeisis since he was born, she said. Their fathers used to work together and the families are close friends.

The two have met in the final round of the NHRA Jr. Dragster Challenge twice – and both times, Medeisis has beaten her, she said.

Nate Kelley, of Tinley Park, Ill. earned the win in the Sportsman Jr. category with a 12.833 at 51.01 in his 2008 Gage junior dragster. Kelley ran faster than his 12.90 dial-in on a double break-out but that didn’t matter by virtue of runner-up Johnathan David’s red-light start.

Eleven-year-old Austin Raider, of Crestwood, Ill., had a perfect .000 reaction time to earn the Best Reaction Time award in Modified. Raider, the season Sportsman runner-up in 2007, has three years behind the wheel.

Rookie driver Katie Rusiniak, 9, of St. John, Ind. earned her first Best Reaction Time award in Sportsman Jr. with a .014 light.
