Two drag racers from Las Vegas ¿ and a third who lives in Arizona but is a regular at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway ¿ claimed victory during the Calvert Racing PSCA Summer Nationals Saturday night.


Sal Cachia of Las Vegas won the Pacific Street Car Association's Borla Trophy class in his 1955 Chevrolet by defeating Bill Dudley in the final round.  Las Vegan Chris Naffziger, The Strip's defending Super Pro champion, won the Bracket 1 category over Henderson's Bryan King.


Dan Reaume, of Kingman, Ariz., is a regular competitor in The Strip's Jerry Nugget Championship Drag Racing Series and won Saturday night's Payton Index finale over Las Vegas' Alfred Sweeting.


Perennial Pro Street competitor Ed Thornton of Chino Hills, Calif., did not win as expected.  Thornton's 1957 Chevrolet posted a 207.75 mph run to earn No. 1 Qualifier status but broke on the starting line ion the first round of competition.  Clint Hariston of Alta Loma, Calif., won the Pro Street final by outrunning Jim Rasko of Gilbert, Ariz.
