Two-time world champion Tommy Franklin scored his first Pro Nitrous victory of the season defeating fellow two-time world champion Jason Harris in the final round.
Tommy Franklin’s late-season hot streak continues to build, as he secured his first PDRA win of the season after winning in Pro Modified at Virginia Motorsports Park’s Shakedown Nationals in September. Plus, his daughters, Amber and Ashley, enjoyed success of their own, with Amber taking runner-up honors in her Pro Outlaw 632 debut and Ashley reaching the semifinals in Pro Jr. Dragster. In the Pro Nitrous final, Franklin piloted his Musi-powered “Jungle Rat” ’69 Camaro to a 3.666 at 203.16 to knock off two-time world champion Jason Harris and his 3.709 at 203.71.
Franklin, the 2016 and 2017 world champion, qualified No. 2 and made it past fellow Virginian Dane Wood in the first round with a 3.867 at 188.17. He dipped back into the 3.60s with a 3.681 at 205.79 in his second-round win over Virginia engine builder Billy Albert. Franklin ran a 3.763 at 184.90 to beat Marcus Butner in the semifinals.
Harris, who returned to Pro Nitrous at the last race after a couple seasons in Pro Boost competition, qualified No. 4 in his Albert-powered “Party Time” ’69 Camaro. He used a 3.739 to defeat Dave Roemer, then a 3.705 to beat Ed Burnley’s 3.73. The 2014 and 2018 world champion won in the semifinals on the starting line when 2019 and 2020 world champion Jim Halsey went red by .005. Harris slowed to a 4.025 next to Halsey’s disqualified 3.656.
