Two-time world champion Rickie Smith outran Danny Rowe in the final round to win the NHRA J&A Services Pro Mod Drag Racing Series portion of the Amalie Motor Oil NHRA Gatornationals Sunday at Gainesville Raceway.
Smith's late model IDG Chevrolet Camaro powered to a performance of 5.829 seconds at 249.86 mph to hold off Rowe's Agave Underground Tequila '68 Chevy Camaro that raced a 5.869 at 233.76. It was Smith's ninth victory and second at Gainesville Raceway. He was runner-up here in 2014.
Smith took out Steven Whiteley, last year's Gatornationals champ, Mike Castellana, and Chip King to meet Rowe in the finals.
Rowe, who qualified 15th, was looking for his fifth career victory and first at Gainesville. He defeated Robert Patrick Jr., Steve Matusek and former Pro Stock driver, Jonathan Gray in the earlier rounds. Rowe was runner-up behind Khalid alBalooshi here in 2011.
