Race Results: Brown, Ingraham and Rainwater score wins to start Crossroads Trailer Jr Drag Racing Series
4/9/21 by Ronnie Kohrt
The 2021 season kicked off Friday night for the Crossroads Trailer Jr. Drag Racing Series. Over 75+ junior dragsters participated in several classes for the first points race of the year.
The Crossroads Trailer JD1 category (6-9 year olds) featured James Brown and Brenna Shannon in the final round. Brown was out of the gate with the better reaction time-to-green and turned it into the first win of the year. Brown ran 12.27 in the final on the 12.18 dial-in set, racing to the finish line over Shannon at the top-end, who ran 14.06 on the 13.95 dial.
The Crossroads Trailer JD2 category (10-12 year olds) featured Emmerson Ingraham and Colin Rogers in the final round. Ingraham was better on the light and closer on the dial at the finish line to light the NAPA Auto Parts right lane win-light.
The Crossroads Trailer JD3 category (13-17 year olds) boasted a massive field and looks to be a large category in 2021. Friday's final featured Brody Woolverton and Bradly Rainwater. Woolverton took out tough competition leading up to the final, including a .0002 MOV round win over Robby Swartwood and a win over 2-time division champ Kylee Nazarenus. But Rainwater proved too much in the final as Woolverton broke out and Rainwater scored the first win of the year in JD3.
The event also featured a consolation category where Kelsey Haase defeated Rudy Sweetman in the finals of consolation A (6-9 year olds) and Logan Duhachek bested Greg Oenes in consolation B (10-17 year olds.)
Duhachek in his Black Mamba Jr. Dragster also took home the first perfect light pin of the year with his .000 effect leading up to his consolation B win.
Several Jr Racers (and Mom and Dad) celebrated birthday's over the weekend! A special Happy Birthday to JD2 racer Tristan Vehar, Jr Dragster graduate Jagr Anderson and to Tawnya Brown, who watched James snag the win in JD1 on her birthday weekend!
