FONTANA, Calif. (Oct 7) – high winds forced the postponement of final eliminations for the second annual JEGS NHRA Pacific SPORTSnationals yesterday at Auto Club Raceway at Fontana, but not before champions were declared in Super Stock, Stock, and Super Street.

One of the champions crowned on Sunday is Justin Lamb of Henderson, Nev., who defeated Darren Smith of Palmdale, Calif., in the Super Stock final. Lamb, who won the Top Dragster title at last year’s Pacific SPORTSnationals drove his Chevy Cobalt to a final round victory over Smith’s ’68 Dodge Dart. Despite the loss, Smith was able regain the lead in the ongoing battle for the Super Stock national championship.

There was another repeat winner in Stock Eliminator as Tibor Kadar of Peoria, Ariz., won the Pacific SPORTSnationals for the second-consecutive season after driving his ’77 Pontiac to a final round win over Kyle Rizzoli of San Luis Obispo, Calif. Kadar has now won three of the last four races he’s attended at Auto Club Raceway in Fontana.

Dwight Downing, who hails from Glendale, Ariz;, was crowned the champion in Super Street eliminator after driving his Plymouth Arrow to a win over Joe Lokhaug of Bakersfield, Calif., in the final. With the victory, Downing has now scored enough points to clinch the NHRA Pacific Division Super Street title.

The JEGS Pacific SPORTSnationals will resume Monday morning, Oct. 8 with the completion of eliminations in Comp, Top Dragster, Top Sportsman, Super Comp and Super Gas. Super Comp and Super Gas completed two rounds of eliminations on Sunday while Comp, Top Dragster, and Top Sportsman competitors will be hitting the track for the first time since the completion of qualifying on Saturday, Oct. 6.
