JEGS Allstars at Joliet

Chevys dominate at JEGS Allstar event

There was indeed a silver lining for the Chevrolet contingent at the 25th annual NHRA JEG’s Allstars race held June 6 at Route 66 Raceway in Joliet, Ill. All of the class winners were Chevrolet cars or Chevy-powered dragsters.

In the Top Alcohol Funny Car class, Northeast Division racer Frank Manzo, already the most successful racer in the history of the JEGS Allstars race, won for the seventh time when he drove his Lucas Oil entry to a 5.56 to 5.63 win over West Central Division racer Roger Bateman.

It was an all-Chevy final in competition Eliminator, as the DD/AT 2008 Cobalt of Bruno Massel (Woodbridge, Ill.) got the win over the I/AA ’93 Beretta of Sal Biondo (Maspeth, NY).
