Sunday, 26 May 2024

GOODLETTSVILLE, TN — Five racers —John Labbous Jr., Jordan Echols, Jordan Johnson, Jordan Weiss and Elliot Echols — heard the sweet sound of victory at the IHRA Sportsman Spectacular presented by Moser at Music City Raceway on Saturday night. 

The drivers went home with the prestigious IHRA Ironman trophies, big checks and special IHRA commemorative medals. Drivers, who were IHRA members, gained entry into the IHRA Summit SuperSeries World Finals presented by Strange Engineering.

Labbous won on a holeshot with a .003 reaction time to a .019 for runner-up Kelby Walker in the $5,000-to-win Super Pro (Box) final. Labbous drove his blue Dodge truck down the drag strip in 5.924 seconds at 112.70 mph against a 5.89 dial-in. Walker finished in 5.972 seconds at 112.24 mph against a 5.95 dial-in.

Johnson proved his No. 4 finish in the Sportsman class at the 2023 IHRA Summit SuperSeries World FInals rankings was no fluke. With the final-round matchup the same as Pro, the roles were reversed with Johnson the winner and Echols runner-up. This time, Johnson had the clean run and Echols fouled.
