NHRA SOUTHEAST DIVISION MOSER SPORTSMAN SHOOTOUT TO HIGHLIGHT SATURDAY’S ACTION AT ROCKINGHAM DRAGWAY
The field of 16 drivers was set through a year-long point’s battle and a year-end wild card drawing. The event presents a unique match of NHRA sportsman racers in Super Stock, Stock, Super Comp, Super Gas, Super Street, Top Dragster and Top Sportsman in head-to-head competition to see who really is the best of the best.
Kevin Brannon and Rusty Cook are both pulling double duty as they are each qualified in two different classes. Brannon will run in Top Dragster, facing off with Casey Spradlin in round one, and will meet up with Cook in round one of Super Comp. Cook is also qualified in Super Gas where he will meet up with John Taylor in round one
The Moser Sportsman Shootout is unique in that racers from the seven entirely different class structures will be racing each other. Eliminations will be in a dial-in/breakout handicap format on an eighth-mile. The Christmas tree will be a full countdown mode with the Cross Talk feature not in use.
A $15,000 cash purse is up for grabs with $5,000 to the winner, $2,000 to the runner-up, $1,000 to each of the semi-finalists, $700 to the quarter-finalists and $400 to each of the remaining event qualifiers.
