The 2012 October Showdown at Dome Valley Raceway completed on Sunday with some exceptional racing action. Dennis Rieck took home the Top Fuel victory defeating Marcus Norris, who was unable to fire on the starting line in the final round. Unfortunately, Dennis was unable to back up his 2.16 pass from Saturday night for a new Top Fuel record. Billy Morris did a great driving job to take the Top Eliminator victory as well as lock up the 2012 NSRA TE Championship. Craig Sines (Top Alcohol) and Aaron Mamer (Fast Fours) took decisive victories in their respective classes. George Amos took a huge victory in the Pro 2 class to virtually lock up the points championship in that class. Other winners on the day include Craig Durning (Pro 1), Donna Huff (Pro 3), Christian Payne (Motorcycle Pro 1), and Mark Ratliff (Motorcycle Pro 2). Run Sheets are now posted from this race.
