The town of Raceland, La., celebrated its second NHRA national event title in less than a month after Trene Cressonie won the Super Comp title in Atlanta. Last month, fellow Raceland resident Ross Laris, who is also one of Cressonie’s sponsors, claimed the Top Dragster win in Houston. Cressonie cruised to the title after final round opponent Shannon Brinkley red-lighted but he would have been tough regardless with a .008 light. Cressonie also got a free pass in the third round when current points leader Ray Miller III red-lighted. Brinkley was in his second final in as many weeks after a runner-up finish at the Four-Wide event in Charlotte.
