Pro Stock Motorcycle up-and-comer Jianna Evaristo powered to the quickest elapsed time of her career in qualifying this weekend with a scorching pass of 6.870 at 194.86, putting her in the No. 13 qualifying position to face Angelle Sampey. Sampey got the better of Evaristo but the rider of the Pep Boys/Scrappers Racing Suzuki feels positive about the weekend overall.
“Right now I’m just working on getting better every round,” said Evaristo. “To hold my own against a legend like Angelle is big for me and we reached a new best elapsed time. The wins will come when they come, but I’m loving every part of this journey.”
In the Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series, Jasmine Salinas made an early exit in the first round of eliminations when she faced James Stevens in her Pep Boys/Scrappers Racing Top Alcohol Dragster. Entering competition from the No. 6 position, J. Salinas and Stevens had identical E.T.s of 5.373. However, Stevens was just a bit quicker off the starting line giving him the Round One win.
“We still have a lot of competition left this season,” said J. Salinas. “I’m not discouraged at all. Overall we have a powerful and consistent car. This just wasn’t our day. But we are still in a good position in the points standings and I do not give up.”
The next stop on the NHRA Camping World Drag Racing Series will be the Betway NHRA Carolina Nationals at zMAX Dragway in Charlotte, N.C.
