Laughlin Takes Win Light at EliteHP SCSN: Dallas
ENNIS, TX — He’s won the NHRA US Nationals, he’s won the biggest small-tire races in the country, and now Alex Laughlin has a Street Car Super Nationals victory. The native Texan earned a home-state victory early Sunday morning at the inaugural EliteHP SCSN: Dallas at the Texas Motorplex. As the sun rose at the conclusion of the overnight festival of speed, Laughlin powered his brand-new Hot Wheels Corvette to the win over Dan Myers.
Making the win extra special was the fact it came on Father’s Day with his dad onhand, four years after earning the NHRA Pro Stock victory in Bristol, also on Father’s Day.
“First win of 2021 and it feels realllll nice!!!” Laughlin said in a post on his verified Instagram account @alexlaughlin40. “We ran the final directly into the sunrise, so that’s a first for me. Huge thanks to Marty Robertson and Elite HP for getting us out here. It’s also rad that it’s the first time to have the car out as a life-size Hot Wheels car too! What a weekend… Seriously, what. a. weekend.”
Event promoter Mel Roth was pleased with the race, from the co-promotion from Team Boddie which was key in attracting some of the nation’s best racers, to the incredible track prep by Andy Carter’s crew.
“One of the things we focus on when we’re looking at facilities to host a Street Car Super Nationals race,” Roth said, “is the quality of the racing surface. The Texas Motorplex is world-class. Those guys gave us an amazing track and we can’t wait to come back!”
All classes were run in grudge, no-time format, with Laughlin winning the Big Tire class. Here are the final-round results for the other classes:
