Great Racing and Great Weather at Round 2 of Summer Drag & Brag
Great weather and great racing graced the Bellagio of drag strips on Wednesday during round two of the Summer Brag and Drag Series at zMAX Dragway. All types of vehicles, from pickup trucks to powerful drag racing machines to street bikes took to the concrete quarter-mile to compete for the opportunity to win the evening’s awards.
Mike Thyen of Sherrils Ford, N.C. smoked the competition on his 2009 Suzuki Hyabusa and took home the honors for Best Reaction Time (.002 seconds), Best Elapsed Time (7.628 seconds) and Top Speed (182.70 mph). More impressive than dominating the awards was the fashion in which Thyen won them, on the final pass of the evening! Aaron Smith of Mooresville, N.C. had the Best Burnout in his 1972 Chevrolet Chevelle, while Anthony Shelton of Charlotte, N.C. received Best in Show for his 1966 Chevy Nova II.
