Bucky vs. Twig Highlights GoodGuys Drags

July 26, 2014

(KENT, Wash) – It was a throw-back throw-down as northwest Funny Car legends Bucky Austin and Twig Zeigler delighted a large Pacific Raceways’ crowd with a side-by-side hammer-down pass at the 27th Annual GoodGuys Vintage Friday Nite Drags July 25th at the historic Kent track. Kris Krabill, driving for the legendary “Northwest Hitter” Bucky Austin, grabbed a slight starting line advantage and powered to a 5.748 at 249.44 mph over Zeigler’s ’74 Plymouth Satellite piloted by Devery Howard, who stopped the clocks at 5.834 at 246.39 mph.  In the nightcap, Krabill set top ET and speed of the night in his match-up with Roger Garten’s 1973 Mach 1 with a 5.737 at 254.86.  Howard’s second round run wasn’t enough to hold off the hole-shot win of Nathan Sitko and his Edmonton, Alberta based ’78 Plymouth Arrow that ran 5.934 at 244.03 to Howard in the Twig Zeigler car at a 5.914 ET at 222.18 mph. Sitko also took the measure of Garten in the opening round with a 5.889 at 243.33 to Garten’s centerline crossing foul. Austin’s and Zeigler’s floppers were mainstays at Pacific Raceways in the heyday of Funny Car match racing when the track was known as Seattle... View Article
