Thankful for what 2018 brought them, Michelle and Rick recall their first win for 2018 in the new Ohio Crankshaft powered Corvette Super Gas roadster at the “Baby Gators” NHRA points race the weekend before the 2018 NHRA Gatornationals. They followed with a runner-up finish the following weekend at the Gatornationals as well.
In April, they made the trip to Galot, NC and scored another Wally, winning in the Ohio Crank powered Dragster in Super Comp eliminations, making it to three finals in a row!
This summer season was filled with an assortment of semi final and quarter final finishes but ended the year with another final round appearance at Rockingham, NC in Super Comp.
The Super Gas Division 2 points championship came down to the final round at the Rockingham event. The team is very proud of our 2nd place Super Gas and 3rd place Super Comp Division 2 points finishes.
The Furrs have won and finished in the top 3 Division points in three classes, several times now. We also wrapped up a strong NHRA National points showing all year finishing tied for 10th place in Super Gas
1/19/19 – Rusty and Theresa Cook struck out for 2019 with an NHRA Division event runner-up at both Indianapolis and Reynolds, Georgia. He ultimately qualified for the NHRA Moser Engineering shootout and finished as NHRA Division 2 champion. Cook finished third in the Southeast Super Gas Association Series. A notable accomplishment since he competed in only three of eight circuit events.
