During the Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series Texas Sportsman Challenge at Royal
Purple Raceway on September 18, 2011; this is the first round match-up in
Top Dragster of Chase Murray (me) versus Mallori McCullar Rodgers. We both
came up through the ranks of Junior Dragsters and are now driving in the
NHRA Top Dragster category which features rail-cars making 6 second,
200mph+ passes! Mallori is an excellent driver and is no stranger to the
winner's circle. The race starts off with my .001 light to Mallori's .036.
Because of my reaction time advantage, I catch her very quickly and find
myself "whomping" the throttle in hopes to not breakout. In the end, I run
6 thousandths of a second too quick, while she is 2 thousandths away from a
dead-on dial. Turned out to be a very close race with the Margin of
Victory being .0086.
