TULSA, OK — Eddie Rogers laid down a pass of 3.863 seconds at 190.30 mph to earn the win Saturday night in the Midwest Pro Mod Series show at Tulsa Raceway Park.

The thrilling finale wrapped up an incredible weekend of racing that kicked off with Keith Haney earning top qualifier honors with a pass of 3.756 seconds at 201.64 mph.
“I thought it was great,” Rogers said after his victory. “We had a great turn out of good cars and a nice mix of power combinations.

I think (the event) was run very well and if we can make sure one combination doesn’t run away with it, the turn out will be good and there will be some great racing.”
