Krabill, Sorokin and Myers score pro wins at Pepsi Nightfire Nationals

(8-13-2012) EAGLE, ID – Kris Krabill scored for the third time at the Pepsi Nightfire Nationals, winning AA/Funny Car over defending Heritage Series World Champion Jason Rupert. Krabill drove his Bucky Austin-owned '78 Arrow to a string of 5.9-second passes, including a 5.941 in the final, which was enough to cover Rupert's 6.00.

In AA/Fuel Dragster, Adam Sorokin's crew pulled off a dramatic pit area thrash between the semi's and final round, rolling into the lanes at the last possible moment to ensure that there wouldn't be a single in the final. Thanks to the good sportsmanship of Rick Williamson who waited patiently for Sorokin, as well as fellow racer Jim Young who pitched in to help Sorokin's crew get the car ready, the Champion Speed Shop team ripped off a 5.83 in the final to edge Williamson's 5.94.

The Pro Modified final was less dramatic, as an inopportune oil leak derailed Marc Meadors dream weekend. Meadors could only sit and watch as Dan Myers soloed to the title in his '57 Cameo.

There were numerous stars in the sportsman ranks on Sunday. Starting with Canadian ace Darryn O'Connor who picked up wins in both Bracketeer and Top Fire, netting a cool $6,000 in one night.

Firebird regular Houston Head scored a clutch title in Pro, which propelled him to the weekend title, as well. And in Sled/Bike, second-generation ace Richie Pedraza scored an unprecedented third win on the weekend en route to a runaway overall title.
