John Labbous Jr. became just the 22nd driver to double up when he earned the Super Comp and Super Gas titles at the NHRA Four-Wide Nationals. Labbous, who was already a championship contender in both categories after a quick start to the 2017 season, defeated Franklin DiBartolomeo in the Super Comp final, 8.906 to 8.916.
Labbous’ two victories mark the 35th time a driver has doubled up at an NHRA event and the second time this season. In Pomona, Ed Olpin won in Top Sportsman and Super Gas. A week before the Charlotte race, Kevin Helms earned a win in Stock and a runner-up finish in Super Stock in Houston.
