GAST wins Pro Mod; Leland’s Lovingood Prevails in Pro Open; Schwartz, Dunbar, Delong also take Wins.                  

Leland’s Bobby Lovingood spoiled Hawaiian rider Rickey Lanham’s bid for his first mainland victory and a seemingly ageless Paul Gast claimed his third straight ManCup Series Pro Mod championship by winning the 190hookup.com Nationals at Rockingham Dragway for the third consecutive time.









Although he qualified No. 1 at 4.102 seconds, the 72-year-old Gast saved his best for race day, dipping to 4.087 seconds in the first round and 4.072 in the final to earn a narrow .041 of a second win over No. 2 qualifier Jeff House of Keller, Texas.

Like Gast, Lovingood earned a wire-to-wire win in Pro Open, qualifying No. 1, cruising past Christopher Lucarolli of Moncks Corner, S.C., in the first round, advancing at the expense of Robert Giard of Gainesboro, Tenn., in the semis and then beating No. 2 qualifier Lanham in the final.

There were race winners from eight different states including John Schwartz of West Seneca, N.Y., who won in Ultra 4.60; Terry Dunbar of Augusta, Ga., who prevailed in Top Gas; and Scott Delong of Citra, Fla., the winner in Super Comp.

Mathew Knaggs of Oak Harbor, Ohio, and Landon Noble of Zachary, La., took home the money in Pro ET and Street ET; Scott Allen of Wheeling, West Va., won in Super Eliminator, Rockingham regular Barry Pryer of Chesapeake, Va., took hom the Street Fighter trophy and Vance Houdyshell of Vero Beach, Fla., won the Saturday V-Twin title before settling for a runner-up finish to Ken Koby of Austintown, Ohio, in the same category on Sunday.
