SIKESTON -- Here are the results from Saturday's Sikeston Drag Strip action.

Super Pro Class

1st Place -- Dave McDonald Cape Girardeau DI -- 5.02 ET -- 5.023 MPH -- 133.57 RT - .527

2nd Place -- Cecil Whitaker Dexter DI -- 5.00 ET -- 5.004 MPH -- 138.37 RT - .532

The final class final of the night featured two of the Super Pro Class titans. Dave McDonald, a former Super Pro Class champion, went up against Cecil Whitaker, a perennial contender to the class crown. The cars were very close, only a .02 difference in the dial in times. With that factored in, this was going to be a heads-up race. Both cars launched together, with Dave having the slight advantage off the starting line. At the end it was anyone's race, but as the cars crossed, the win light came on in Dave's lane. His victory was a slim one, by only .006 of a second. Saturday May 12th is Pro Mod Saturday. Friday Night Test n Tune is also going on from 6 p.m. until 10 p.m.
