Medical Lake's Cooper is double-drag winner

 


Drag racer Justin Cooper of Medical Lake took home not one, but two trophies as he pulled off the rare double win in the NHRA Lucas Oil Series at the 48th annual NAPA Auto Parts Ignitor at Firebird Raceway near Boise, Idaho, May 6.

Cooper, driving cars owned by Tom Clark of Spokane Valley knocked out Mike Hiatt, of Fallon, Nev., in Super Comp running 9.159 seconds at 161.56 mph to Hiatt’s 9.171, 161.56. In Super Street, Cooper met up with Al Quigley out of Aldergrove, British Columbia. Cooper’s 1967 Chevelle covered the quarter mile in 11.140, 129.79 to Quigley’s 11.114, 140.91 in his 1998 Mustang.

These were Cooper’s fourth and fifth victories in the regional Lucas Oil Series where the winner claims the coveted “Wally” statue trophies, named in honor of NHRA founder, Wally Parks.
