The 2013 edition of the Dome Valley Raceway Top Fuel Shootout is complete after a great final day of sand drags at the Wellton, AZ track. Matthew Ludlow and the Coldwater Kid Top Fuel team became three-time TF Shootout champions as they took the win with a 2.35/169MPH blast in the final round. The Top Alcohol racers put on a great show with Gary Mink taking the win by mere inches in a great battle with Rod Trower 2.47 to 2.51. The 2012 TE champion Billy Morris started off his title defense in great form as he took the win light in a double break out final round over Dee Trower 2.90 to 2.86. Fast Fours was another great race as the 2012 class champion Aaron Mamer got the job done in the Sidewinder as he took a hole shot victory over Robert Skidmore 2.93 to 2.92. Missouri was well represented as Russ Bailey took the Pro Outlaw FE win in a great battle with Marc Whitmore 3.16 to 3.14, while fellow Missourian Dennis Burrows steered his VW-powered Buggy to the Pro 1 victory. Sunday’s biggest winner was Chris Adamson as he drove the “Bounty Hunter” to a Sunday double as he won both the Pro 2 and Pro 3 categories. Combined with his own win on Friday in Pro Truck and son Justin’s win on Saturday in Open Pro, the “Bounty Hunter” Jeep won 4 of the 5 categories it was entered in. Marc Ratliff continued his successful weekend as he won the Motorcycle Pro 1 category, and former Motorcycle Pro 2 class champion Joey Weaver was back in the groove as he took the Season Opening class win. *Run Sheets are now posted. This concludes the Daily Race Coverage from this event. (1-29-13)*
