An additional 30 racers bought back in after round one losses, but in the end, it was Laura Shepherd fromTillsonburg, Ontario Canada cashing in on the big payday.

Laura ShepherdLaura earned her way into the final dash-for-cash, but caught a break literally when her opponent Russ Denmark broke at top end and fell 2-tenths of his 4.64 dial-in. Laura ran a great top end pass with a 4.790 at 143.28 mph run on her 4.78 dial, but opened the door for Russ to drive around her with a .574 to .531 reaction time deficit. Russ, a regular competitor at Skyview Drags, was dialed in at a quicker 4.64, but fell off to a 4.849 at 139.65 mph for the runner-up finish. John Cooper, a frequent racer at both ESTA and Skyview was the lone semifinalist.

LaRose DeFeats Pro Sophmore Hardman for Showdown Win

Mike LaRose - Pro Showdown Winner

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.
