Duane Shields made his annual appearance in beautiful upstate New York at the scenic Lebanon Valley Dragway for a Lucas Oil Regional Drag Racing Series event. The Nevada standout driving the popular PEAK A/Fuel dragster made three solid runs in qualifying with his best run being a respectable 5.33 at 271 MPH to qualify third over the ten cars competing to get into a tight eight car field. In round one, Duane faced east coast regular Dan Mercier. Unfortunately, the traction wasn't there and Duane severely smoked the tires at the hit. Mercier, also suffered some traction loss but not nearly as bad. Mercier was able to pedal his way to the win with a 5.74 over Duane's 13.96. The PEAK team now takes an early summer break and will be back into action in Atco, NJ, for another Lucas Oil Regional event, August 2-4. As always, Duane would like to thank PEAK Antifreeze and Motor Oil, Final Charge, Blue Def, NGK Spark Plugs, GRP Connecting Rods, Brad Anderson Enterprises, Hot Wheels Car Care Products, SRI and Clean Boost for their support.
