Mopars Aplenty At The 27th Running Of The Mopar Nationals

It was Mopar or No Car at the 27th Annual Yukon Gear and Axle Mopar Nationals held at Woodburn Dragstrip on July 22, 2012. In addition to the drag race, an excellent car show presented by the Mopar MuscleCars car club and a swap meet filled the grounds with Mopar excellence. In the drag race portion of the event, Ronald Weise drove his ’34 Coupe to victory over Richard LaChance in Super Pro. Casey Allum used a .008 reaction time to defeat Jerry Bugge in the finals of Pro. In Sportsman, Jerry Durant, Jr. earned the win over Derrick Jackson. Scotty Stoner was champion of the Stick Shift class with his win over Alejandro Razo. And finally, in Run Tuff, Dave Kranz downed Jay Phillips for top honors.
