Daniel Pharris with a win! Debuts EX EKANOO RACING Lexus RC-F in Limited Drag Radial at OSCR V!


Well, I guess that's one way to do it!! Back to back OSCR wins in the Andrew Alepa owned Corvette and rolled the Lexus into the winner's circle in its US debut! Needless to say, I think it's safe to say that I love that event - Pharris Motorsports

After arguably the toughest day in event history, the sun rose on Saturday morning with some gorgeous weather in the Kentucky sky and a full day of drag racing action in front of a great crowd at the Beech Bend Raceway Park. Daniel Pharris wheeled the deal in the Andrew and Kim Alepa owned ’14 Chevrolet Corvette running the table for the second year in a row, number one qualifier with a 3.715 elapsed time.

Mark Micke, Keith Haney, Jeff Naiser and Tim Slavens rounded out the top five in the eighteen car field. Pharris carried the momentum from qualifying all the way to back-to-back OSCR titles in Radial vs. The World by defeating the nitrous oxide entry of Jeff Naiser in the final round, 3.73 to Naiser’s 3.74. Pharris, Alepa and tuner Chase Driskell laid claim to the $25,000 to Win purse in Radial vs. The World, brought to the event by Billet Atomizer Racing Injectors, Mickey Thompson Tires and Strange Engineering for the second consecutive season, a feat that nobody else has ever accomplished at the Outlaw Street Car Reunion in the heads up categories.

But, the Sikeston, Missouri business owner was far from completed during his time at the Holley EFI Outlaw Street Car Reunion V. Pharris also debuted his ’15 Lexus RC-F in the Limited Drag Radial category, backed by Hyperaktive Performance Solutions, TRZ Motorsports and Wiseco Automotive. Pharris was the #2 qualifier right behind Justin Martin’s record-breaking 4.111 elapsed time in his Oklahoma based, twin turbocharged Chevrolet Nova. Lyle Barnett slid the leaf-spring record in at the third slot on the qualifying sheet with a 4.139 while Shane Stack and Scott Husted rounded out the top five in qualifying with a full 32-car field with drivers sitting on the outside. At the end of the day, Pharris blasted by ‘The Thrillbilly’, Shane Stack, in the final round with a 4.117 at 189 miles per hour blast to outlast the slowing Stack, running a 4.37 out of the loud pedal. For the first time in event history, a driver won two classes in the same weekend and that driver was Daniel Pharris.
