The PMRA presented by Fast By Gast held race #4 of 6 this past Saturday at Thunder Valley Raceway Park in Noble, OK. We saw some great racing under the lights as we tried to beat the July heat.
In the Pro Open class sponsored by Hughes Racing, Shane Eperjesi from Lake Dallas, TX once again dominated and took the #1 qualifying spot and went on to win the race. Kenwone Fulsom out of Collinsville, OK was right there with his 7.115 and a better light but it wasn’t enough to hold off Shane with his 6.738 ET.
