Lineberry Claims True Street Competition At Saturday's Super Chevy Show
Perfect weather, a huge car count and an on-the-edge thrill show highlighted an exciting day of Bowtie action during Saturday’s Super Chevy Show presented by the GM Performance Division at Bristol Dragway.
The highlight of Saturday’s event was the Fas Mart Thunder Valley Mayhem presented by Beef O’ Brady’s Family Sports Restaurant. Fans were treated to Nitro-powered Pro Mod action, Jet Dragsters and quick door-slammer index racing during the two Pro Sessions of Thunder Valley Mayhem. A monster truck match race between War Wizard and Maximum Overkill and a wheel-standing Radio Flyer wagon also hit the track to the delight of the crowd. Flying high above the action were the members of the outrageous Team FMX motocross group.
On Saturday afternoon, True Street participants took a cruise through the surrounding countryside, returning to Thunder Valley to battle it out for supremacy. More than 40 cars entered the category, and after proving their road-worthiness, the machines took two passes down the legendary quarter-mile.
David Lineberry of Pulaski, Va. drove his 1974 Camaro Z28 to the overall win from the 13.00-second index. Lineberry’s overall average time was a 13.087, putting him closest to his chosen index.
Jon Phillips (8.00-second index, Erwin, Tenn.), David Dockery (9.00-second index, Dunagannon, Va.), Garnie Peterson (10.00-second index, Erwin, Tenn.) and A.J. Sharpe (11.00-second index, Lavalette, W.V.) earned wins in their respective categories.
Wesley Cox (12.00-second index, Pulaski, Va.), Lineberry (13.00-second index), Chris Moore (14.00-second index, Waynesville, N.C.) and Anthony Cichocki (15.00-second index) also brought home victories during Saturday’s True Street competition.
