Some of the east coasts biggest names in drag racing made the call on Friday night. Racers such as Pete Peek, Virgil Prehn, Buddy Chicklo and Gene Cook Sr were part of the 55 and older class. In the end it was Virginia’s own Virgil Prehn taking the win over a red lighting Gene Cook Sr.
Another special class on Friday night was the High Rollers Class. It featured a $100 buy in, and with additional sponsor money chipping in the pot was almost $3,000.
