Bryan Warf of Meridian set Meridian Speedway’s overall track record for the second night in a row.

Warf ran a qualifying lap of 10.866 seconds on Saturday, dipping below the 11-second barrier for only the second time in track history in his No. 91 Super Modified. Warf became the first driver to break into the 10s with his run of 10.974 on Friday.

The 31-year-old driver then swept the two-day Diamond Cup points titles for both the Super Modifieds and NSRA Winged Sprints, collecting two diamond rings — one for each championship.

Warf won the Super Modified main event both nights and the 50-lap Winged Sprint main Saturday.

Firebird record also falls

Scott White of Seaside, Ore., set a new track record at the 37th annual Oldies But Goodies Drags on Saturday.

Driving his 1941 Willys coupe, White ran an elapsed time of 6.71 seconds, eclipsing the five-year-old record of 6.73 set by Troy Owen.

Sunday’s time trials will now start at 8:30 a.m., and the first round of eliminations is scheduled for 11:15 a.m.
