Kevin Brannon and Rusty Cook are both pulling double duty as they are each qualified in two different classes.

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – T.C. Morris took home the NHRA Moser Sportsman Shootout trophy defeating Devin Isenhower in a great final round match up at Beech Bend Raceway Park in Bowling Green, Ky. Mia Tedesco and Doug Gordon qualified number one in Top Alcohol Dragster and Funny Car to lead their fields going into Sunday’s eliminations.
Morris, New Haven, Ky., took a slight advantage off the line with a .010 second hole shot lead and ran his ’04 GTO to a 6.897 second lap on a 6.87 second dial to hold on for the win. Isenhower, Lebanon, Ind., was right on his heels at 6.952 seconds on a 6.93 dial in his ’67 Camaro. Morris was on his game all day taking out Aaron Allison in round one with a near perfect .004 second reaction time followed by a perfect .000 second reaction time to down Jeff Dona in round two and a .008 in his semifinal match up with Larry Hodge to advance to the final.
BOWLING GREEN, KY – The NHRA North Central Division Moser Sportsman Shootout is set to take place on Saturday, August 26, in conjunction with the NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series event at Beech Bend Raceway Park, Bowling Green, Ky. Jacob Elrod is looking to defend his title from a year ago having qualified in two classes.
Elrod out of Harrod, Ohio, captured the 2016 Moser Sportsman Shootout with a win over Mark McDonald who is also qualified again this year in the Top Sportsman class. Elrod returns this year in both the Super Gas and Super Comp classes. Elrod will face off with Devin Isenhower in his round one Super Gas match up and Joe Fuesting in round one Super Comp.
Cummings worked his way through the 16-car field made up of drivers in seven different NHRA classes, knocking out Christopher Dodd, Double Oak, Texas, in the final with a time of 5.946 seconds in his Moser Engineering sponsored ’03 Cavalier. Cummings took a nice starting line advantage and it was over after that as the quicker Dodd could not make up the difference as Cummings took the win and the $5,000 purse from Moser Engineering. Cummings had excellent reaction times throughout eliminations beating Jacob Pit, Austin Williams and defending Moser Shootout Champion Ray Dew on his way to the final.
Through a season long point’s battle in 2016, the top two Moser Sportsman Shootout point’s earners in each of the seven classes in competition were slotted into the 16-car field while John Garner and Jessica Ogden will complete the ladder as the Moser Shootout Wild Card entries.
Ray Dew out of League City, Texas, captured the 2016 Moser Sportsman Shootout with a win over Steve Collier, and will look to defend his title as he is qualified in the Super Street class for the 2017 competition. To do so, Dew will need to get past 2014 Lucas Oil Stock National Champion Austin Williams who is qualifying in both Stock and Super Comp, along with former Moser Shootout Champion Slate Cummings who once again qualified for the elusive field in Super Stock.
