🚀 **Ironlisting.com Dominates at Carolina Nationals!** 🏁
Ironlisting.com is thrilled to announce our victory at the Carolina Nationals in the Extreme Pro Stock class. Our sponsored drag racer, Alan Drinkwater, made history by claiming his second consecutive win, marking the third victory of this season.
In an electrifying final round, Alan Drinkwater faced off against the 2021 world champion and points leader, Chris Powers. With lightning-quick reflexes and an impressive run, Drinkwater secured the win. He unleashed his Kaase-powered IronListing.com '08 Mustang, clocking in at 4.078 seconds with a speed of 178.01 mph, edging out Powers by just a mere 0.006 seconds.
Drinkwater's triumph was even more remarkable because he raced without his tuner and teammate, two-time world champion Johnny Pluchino, who had a significant reason to stay home. Johnny and his wife Monica welcomed their first baby over the weekend.
Drinkwater expressed his joy and dedication, saying, "I hate it that our buddies from Long Island couldn't make it here, but I'm glad we were able to rise to the occasion and really do this for them. Johnny just had a baby, so I'm glad we were able to put it in the winner's circle and just represent us as a team, as a whole."
He also gave credit to his support team, sponsors, and everyone who contributed to this fantastic win.
A Weekend of Triumphs:

However, it was in the semis that Drinkwater truly shone. He delivered his best performance of the day, clocking in at 4.077 seconds with a speed of 177.58, advancing to the finals by leaving No. 1 qualifier John DeFlorian in his dust.
