“It’s A.O. Time,” Eric McKinney said on his way to the South Georgia Motorsports Park winners circle. His McKinney Motorsports teammate Ashley Owens (A.O.) had just won APE Pro Comp at the Exoticycle/Roaring Toyz Spring Cup and it was time to celebrate. It was the second win in two weekends for the Hamersville, Ohio-based team, after Eric collected the hardware at the first ever PDRA race at Rockingham Dragway in North Carolina the previous Sunday.

Making Owens’ win even sweeter for the McKinney team was the opponent in the other lane—multi-time champ Billy Vose. Owens’ winlight avenged McKinney’s round 2 loss to arch-rival Vose, who redlit against Ashley.
