Kyle Bigley Clinches His First Win at Numidia

Numidia has long been called home for Kyle as he largely grew up racing there in his later childhood years. Numidia has been home of the best racers in Division One for a number of years and is called home by Dimino, Biondo, Krushinske and many other well-known and very accomplished racers.

 

With so many years spent at this facility, memories made, races and championships won, what better track to win your first NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series Divisional Event at than home? That’s just what Kyle did as he debuted his Super Comp car for just the second time this season.

 

The victory though, came nothing short of headaches and problems for Bigley and his ride. Come first round, the car suffered technical problems with a broken water pump, and with Super Comp being called to the lanes, time was of the essence for Kyle. Luckily, his crew Ed and Bill along with the help of Matt Schell, and Ken Moses were able to get the car ready just as the last pairs were rolling out.

 

Kyle went on to beat Don Bangs with a .000 light in round one after Don turned it -.009 red. The rest of the race was nothing short of exciting as Bigley put on a show for the home track as he drove the wheels off his 14’ Undercover into the Final Round where he found himself lined up against former Division 1 Champion Mike Robilotto.

 

Bigley parlayed a holeshot of .002 into a win over Mike Robilotto in Super Comp. Bigley clocked in at 8.921 seconds at 170.64 to take just .002 at the other end and hold on as Robilotto came charging with an 8.903 run on the 8.90 index but couldn’t seal the deal as Bigley was “#Be00Take00”. This win was extra special as it was not only his first Super Comp win, at his home track, it was also on Father’s Day. Happy Father’s Day to Ed!
