GALOT Motorsports’ Kevin Rivenbark scored a great runner-up finish at The Bash on the Bayou


After four rounds of qualifying, Rivenbark was ranked third overall for the Pro Mod class with a best pass of 4.057 at 182.23 MPH in his supercharged Pontiac Firebird, while teammate Todd “King Tut” Tutterow qualified just a hair off the pace in the Pro X-Treme class with his supercharged 1967 Ford Mustang GT500.

During the first round of Pro Mod eliminations, Rivenbark easily drove past his opponent with a strong 3.994 at 183.34 MPH pass to take the win. In the finals, Rivenbark went even quicker and faster but lost at the tree in a holeshot battle; despite having a lower ET than his challenger, Rivenbark’s 3.964 at 184.70 MPH run got him through the traps just two feet behind the other car.

In Pro X-Treme eliminations, Tutterow had a solid first round trip with a 4.031 at 184.35 MPH run, but luck was not on his side and he was unable to continue in the competition.
