Evan Stack (age 6-9), Ryan Avallone (10-12), and Zachary Zibella (13-17) claimed top honors in Jr. Dragster competition during the Division 1 NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series event at Lebanon Valley.
Stack, near lane, got off the starting line first in the 6-9 age-group final, and he used the advantage to defeat Emma Stodulski, 12.630 (12.54 dial) to 12.295 (12.28).
The Stack family came up just short of a double when James Stack Jr., far lane, came out on the losing end of a great match with Avallone in the 10-12 title round. Both drivers broke out with Avallone’s closer 9.109 (9.13) turning on the win light against Stack’s 8.857 (8.90).
Zibella, near lane, earned the Wally in the 13-17 class when he bested Spencer Jasmin, 8.494 (7.90) to 9.734 (8.09), in the final.
