Welcome ladies, gentleman, crews, and drivers for the Greater Los Angeles Lions Club Championships, at the historic Lions Drag strip in Wilmington, California, the inaugural 2016 Saturday Night Racing Association's Southern Fryed Drag Tour event. Most of us are enjoying the relief from the unrelenting winter in most of the country. The temps here are in the low 80's. Today’s highs were single digits back home.

This is the 6th season of the Southern Fryed Drag Tour. For some reason we have a disappointing small field of only seven cars. We also only have one past Southern Fryed Drag Tour champion competing this year. That would be the 2013 champ wisdonm who is tonight's fast qualifier in his Ford powered Ferrari.

It's time to get this season started. Our first run of the season will be a single car pass by our fast qualifier wisdonm in his red and blue Ferrari F-40 BIPOLAR. This car has a massive twin turboed 820 cubic inch Ford hemi.



Wisdonm takes a pass of 6.50 for an uneventful season starting pass.

Has a checkered past.

Stand on it....brakes only slow yoou down.

Has a checkered past.

This brings up our last pair in the semi-final round, for a classic show down between Historic Racing Associates team mates, Speed VS "ET".

Speed is driving the "Terrible Toppolino".



"ET" is driving the beautiful Dynamic Performance Special.



The two diggers do their burnouts and gingerly stage. "ET" has a 0.28 second advantage and roars away hanging the hoops. Speed also does a wheely, but gets a little high and has to back peddle. "ET" hangs on for the win and will move into the final round.



That concludes the semi-final round. Be sure to return in time to see the exciting final, after the mandatory break.

Has a checkered past.

Welcome back to final round of the Greater Los Angeles Lions Club Championships at the historic Lions Dragstrip, in Wilmington, California. The opening event of the 2016 Southern Fryed Drag Tour.

The temp is going to be great for the final round between wisdonm and "ET".

Wisdonm will be driving his Ford powered Ferrari for DIRT.



"ET" will be driving the Historic Racing Associates Dynamic Performance Special.



Both drivers go through their prep and stage. "ET" roars off with a 1.74 second lead. Wisdonm drops the hammer on the Ferrari, but gets excessive wheel spin. He gathers it up, but can not recover and "ET" hangs on to win the first 2016 Southern Fryed Drag Tour event of the year.



Congratulations "ET" and the Historic Racing Associates.


See all y'all at the second event of the year on Feb, 20th. at the Copper Drags - Firebird International Raceway, Chandler, Arizona
