This past weekend at the Summit Equipment Nationals in Norwalk, Ohio, Bill Reichert in the Rislone Top Alcohol Dragster bagged his fourth win in pursuit of the series championship. Facing Dan Page of Arthur Gallant Racing in the finals on Sunday, Reichert pulled a 5.334 ET versus Page's 5.436 to take the win.
The run began at 5:04 PM. Weather conditions were a relief from the insane heat they had on Friday and Saturday: air temperature 81 degrees, relative humidity 55 percent, barometer 29.05 inches, adjusted altitude 3,243 feet, track temperature 120 degrees.
Reichert and crew are 25-21 in final rounds. They have been in 16 finals when starting from the number one position and have won seven of those. This was Page's first final round.

From everyone here at Rislone HQ, congratulations to Bill and team. Class guys with one seriously kickass car.
