LaRose DeFeats Pro Sophmore Hardman for Showdown Win
July 6 -Justin Hardman had a banner year in 2013 as a graduate from the Jr. Dragster division, but it was the cagey veteran Mike LaRose who won the Pro Showdown battle on Sunday. With a tenth of a second head start, Mike nailed the tree with a stout .519 reaction time and shut the door at the top end with a 10.299 at 125.73 mph run on his 10.27 dial-in to seal the win. Justin was on his game as well when he posted a decent 10.197 at 128.93 run on his 10.17 dial, but his .532 light wasn't enough to chase Mike down. Todd Lipke and Jason Wahl both made strong semifinal finishes on the day.
