Bristol Dragway Hosts Final Street Fights, Crowns Power Hour Champions
More than 200 cars filled Thunder Valley Saturday for the year's final Street Fights presented by ZRock 99.3. The season-ending event hosted by Frito-Lay not only gave anyone with a street-legal ride one last chance to tackle the legendary straight strip, but also saw Bristol Dragway crown the 2013 Power Hour champions.
Pitting the night's eight toughest rides in the best two-out-of-three grudge matches, on any given night Power Hour determines which racers are dominant in Thunder Valley. Those choosing to participate in the year-long championship race accumulated points over the course of seven events with the goal of being named 2013's fastest ride.
Blountville's Bobby Kisner entered Saturday's final race with a ten point lead over Kentucky resident Willard Kinzer, and while both men recorded impressive performances, turning on their respective win lights and receiving maximum points on the day, Kisner's advantage ultimately proved too much for Kinzer to overcome.
Jerry Turner, Bluff City, Tenn., secured the 2013 Power Hour Bike championship trophy, edging out second place Johnny Jobe, Gate City, Va., by just six points overall. However, it was Elizabethton's Chris Johnson who raced his way to Saturday's single event trophy, posting a top speed of 155.76 mph.
