Screamin’ Eagle Pro Dragster saw hometown favourite and defending champion, Hi-Per Al Miles return to his winning ways. In the final elimination round, Miles and his FFR Racing Drag Specialties machine ran their best time of the weekend of 7.849 seconds at 160.37 mph, defeating Doug Hadley of Virden Manitoba. The win allowed Miles to leapfrog Evan Barsness and Dan Ramage to take over top spot in the chase for the 2015 championship.
The weekend event also saw Mike McBrine of Slave Lake Alberta take home the $1,000 prize in the CMDRA Harley-Davidson Street Legal Challenge. Open to any street legal Harley Davidson, McBrine won the heads up shootout aboard his 2007 Screamin’ Eagle V-Rod.
