In a side-by-side final determined by a .0026-second margin of victory, Alan Felts earned his second-straight Mickey Thompson X275 victory at Street Car Super Nationals 6: Anarchy Under The Arch Saturday night at World Wide Technology Raceway near St. Louis. The Bowling Green, Ky. native drove his ’91 Mustang GT to a holeshot win over Kenny Hubbard, Hubbard’s 4.429-second ET falling to Felts’ 4.432.
