Carl Widner has risen to the top of the Trading Post Sportsman class at Bristol Dragway.
The Elizabethton racer leads the point standings, following a final-round victory last Saturday at Thunder Valley. Widner is also competing in the Pro-Footbrake decision, where he stands sixth in the points.
Widner laid down six winning Sportsman passes in the DER Bracket Racing Series.
Elizabethton’s Taylor Gill reached the winner’s circle in Junior Dragster 2. Gill has climbed to second place in the season standings, after taking three rounds on Saturday.
