Mopars at Rockingham, NC

Mopars Rock the Rock

Billy Varner Jr. claimed the $1,200 top prize Saturday, April 12, when David Keels fouled out by .001 of a second in the Top ET final round at the 23rd annual Mopars at the Rock all-Chrysler event at Steve Earwood’s Rockingham Dragway.

Other bracket winners Saturday were J.W. Ray and Davey Emanuel in the Footbrake and Trophy classes, respectively.

The event celebrated all things Mopar with a car show, swap meet and an exhibition involving Hemi-powered Super Stock cars.

This original 1965 Factory Hemi is driven by Mike Kayrouz from New Albany, Ind.

Among the cars that reached the quarterfinal round in Top ET were a pair of 1972 Plymouths – Jim Chandler’s Duster and Lynn Baldwin’s Roadrunner (shown).
