            In Top Alcohol Funny Car, Melinda Green-King defeated Mark Billington for her second Southeast divisional win in a row, scoring the win at Atlanta Dragway back in May.  Green-King drove her ’10 Mustang to a pass of 5.903 seconds at 244.43 mph.
            Taking his first win of the season in Top Alcohol Dragster was Sidnei Frigo of Ft.

            Comp Eliminator racer and current division champion Glen Treadwell took the win in his ’23 roadster holding off Sal Biondo, Maspeth, N.Y., and Jeff Adkinson, Damascus, Ga., and Joe Santangelo, Marlborough, Conn., won in Super Stock and Stock respectively.  Adkinson ousted David Simmons, Suwannee, Ga., and Santangelo was too much for Robbie Shaw, Bowdon, Ga.
