O'Reilly Auto Parts Friday Night Drags & Show-N-Shine Week 11 results
The O'Reilly Auto Parts Friday Night Drags and Show-N-Shine revved up the action on the pit-lane drag strip at Atlanta Motor Speedway Friday night in Week 11 action of the 16-week summer series.
Jonesboro's Robert Cheney returned to Victory Lane for the first time since Week 8 in the Harbin's Mechanical Services Super Pro Division, as he had it in gear in the evening's finale, beating out 2015 division champ Billy Clevenger, to extend his commanding lead in the overall standings.
In the Active Pest Control Pro Division, Clevenger's son, David, won for the second straight week and third time in four weeks. Behind the wheel of his red 1986 Chevrolet Corvette, David edged Kevin Mayo of Griffin to pad his own narrow lead in the standings in a tight race heading down the stretch.
Flynt Biles of Williamson made his 2016 Victory Lane debut in the Summit Racing Equipment Sportsman Division driving his 1979 Ford Mustang. Biles appeared in the division's finale in Week 10 but had to wait one more week to record his first win. Biles beat out Bonnie Queen of Jonesboro in the division's last race of the night. Both drivers entered the evening winless on the year.
Repeat Friday night winners from last week include James Hames of McDonough in the Truck Advanced Division, Tony Freeman of Stockbridge in the Super Bike Division and Jamar Copes in the U.S. Marines Motorcycle Division.
