BUNKER HILL, IN — Zack Gosnell made history at historic Bunker Hill Dragstrip on Saturday night by doubling up as the winner of both the Top (Box) and Mod (No Box) classes at the IHRA Sportsman Spectacular presented by Moser Engineering.

Other Sportsman Spectacular winners included: Jim Andrysiak in Sportsman, Tyler Fisher in Motorcycle and Treson Ambrose in Junior Dragster. The drivers not only landed in the Coan Engineering Winner’s Circle, but also punched their tickets to the IHRA Summit SuperSeries World Finals presented by Strange Engineering.

Gosnell took home two of the prestigious IHRA Ironman trophies, big checks and commemorative medals. He defeated Morgan Wood in the Bellman Oil Top final as Wood fouled at the start. With the race in hand, Gosnell cruised down the track in 7.935 seconds on a 5.52 dial-in.
