BELLE ROSE, La. – Austin Williams took home the honors in the NHRA Moser Sportsman Shootout and Charlie Westcott captured the Inaugural Tim Hebert “Chootout” in Friday’s action for the NHRA JEGS Cajun SPORTSnationals at No Problem Raceway, Belle Rose, La.

Williams, Burleson, Texas, qualified for the Moser Shootout specialty race in not one but two classes running in both Stock Eliminator and in Super Comp.  Williams defeated David Latino in the round one Stock pairing but fell to former NHRA Lucas Oil world champion Jeff Lopez in the round one Super Comp pairing.  Lopez was also pulling double duty but lost to Jimmy Lewis in Super Gas round 1.

Williams and Lopez were on opposite sides of the 16-car ladder and would both win their second and third round match ups setting up the final round rematch with Williams getting a second chance at Lopez.  Williams was determined not to lose to Lopez a second time taking the win in his ’72 Duster running 6.924 seconds on his 6.91 dial.

Westcott, Parma, Mich., outran Schriever, La., racer Joe Teuton as  Westcott’s “War Fish” ’68 Barracuda went 8.314 seconds at 160.16 mph to Teuton’s 8.461, 157.36 in his “King Cuda” ’68 Barracuda.  The event was held to honor Tim Hebert who passed away suddenly last June at the age of 53 and was a regular at Hemi Shootouts across the country.

Leading qualifying today for the JEGS Cajun SPORTSnationals was Lake Charles, La., racer Keith Raftery in the Orteq Top Sportsman with a lap of 6.351 seconds at 217.39 mph followed by Earl Folse, Raceland, La., in the No. 2 spot at 6.408, 219.04.

Kevin Self and Richard Edwards are on top in Comp Eliminator and Sunset Racecraft Top Dragster respectively.  Self, Caddo, Okla., went 7.656 seconds in his ’32 roadster and Edwards out of Terre Haute, Ind., covered the quarter mile in 6.036 at 229.98 mph.

Super Stock saw Richard Rodgers, Dearborn Heights, Mich., qualify No. 1 in his ’12 Mustang and Paul Candies, Des Allemands, La., led more than 100 entries in Stock running 9.817 seconds in his ’10 Challenger.

With an unfavorable weather forecast for Sunday, NHRA and track officials have shifted the weekend’s schedule moving eliminations for this weekend’s NHRA JEGS Cajun SPORTSnationals to Saturday morning.  Any new entries will be placed at the bottom of the class ladder for incomplete fields.

The annual specialty fun races held during the JEGS SPORTSnationals will be held on Sunday as weather permits.  These events include the King of the Bayou, Stock/Super Stock CIC race, and the Top Sportsman and Top Dragster Shootouts.
