In addition to the wild Pro action, local Sportsman racer Mark Faul from Tacoma scored a win in Stock Eliminator at Phoenix as well. This is a good reminder that tickets are on sale NOW for the 27th Annual O’Reilly Auto Parts NHRA Northwest Nationals at Pacific Raceways on August 1-3. Tickets can be purchased online at www.nhratix.com or by calling (253) 639-5927.
