Spring Hill, Tenn. native Russ Almand triumphed over six rounds of competition to take home the Bracket 2 title last weekend at Bristol Dragway's Super Chevy Show.  His winning pass clocked in at 102.55mph with a .018 reaction time and 6.621 elapsed time as he bested Abingdon, Va. resident Brandon Bailey in the finals. 

Bracket racing wasn't the only action this weekend at the straight strip as the region's largest Chevy event invaded Thunder Valley complete with car show, car corral and swap meet with more than 300 vendors. 

Jennings White of Manchester, Ky. claimed the title of Best in Show with his 1955 Chevy, earning his ride a feature in Super Chevy magazine.
