The Cummings Motorsport team took an annual pilgrimage from their home in Hammond, Louisiana, to the Las Vegas for the 10th Annual NHRA Nationals. In the NHRA Full Throttle Drag Racing Series Stock Eliminator final, Slate Cummings snatched the victory by a mere tire's width, or 0.0154 seconds.
Slate Cummings Stock Eliminator win at the 10th Annual NHRA Las Vegas Nationals was the K&N sponsored drivers third national event victory for 2010.
"The Vegas event was a great win for a number of reasons," commented the K&N sponsored driver. "First off, the victory marked our third NHRA national event win of the season in our fifth final, which capped off a tremendous year! We came into this event as a national championship contender in both Stock and Super Stock, but we were out of national events to claim toward our year-end total. So, it was nice to be able to race without the pressure of the points chase, and at the same time, we felt like the win would give us some momentum to carry into the deciding event the next week.
The championships would be decided the following week at the divisional event at the same facility - The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
"We finished the season the following weekend at the LODRS (Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series) event in Las Vegas. The result wasn't what we'd hoped for, as we lost a heads-up battle in round two of Stock Eliminator, falling just short of the national championship."
"In retrospect, we had a fantastic season, regardless," added Cummings. "I finished second in NHRA national points in Stock, and ninth in Super Stock. Our team driver, Jody Simoneaux, won the Division 4 Stock Championship, and my father, Larry, won the IHRA Division 4 Super Stock title."
"We look forward to more of the same for 2011. Moser Engineering is back on board as our major sponsor once again, and we'll have new graphics for next season. We also thank K&N for their continuing support for Cummings Motorsports, a.k.a. The Bayou Boyz."
"We plan on running an ambitious schedule of NHRA events in pursuit of the Lucas Oil Championship," says Cummings. "Between my brother Britt, father Larry, Jody and myself, we will field six cars in Super Stock, Stock, Super Comp, and Top Dragster. We're looking forward to another great year in 2011."
