Alex Hossler a Canton, Il native captured the American Drag Racing League (ADRL) Pro Extreme title Saturday night in Madison, IL. It was one of the most exciting races of the weekend as he crossed the finish line with his car on fire. With more than 100 friends, family and co-workers looking on Alex captured his second career ADRL PX win. His ’71 Camaro went a Saturday-best 3.69 at 203 miles per hour, beating Gaylen Smith before a massive overflow crowd at GIR. ”(The 3.69) put quite the exclamation point on the coolest win I’ve ever had,” Hossler said. “I don’t know how I could have made it any better. “There is no race I would rather win. This is definitely the highlight of my ADRL career. This has been great, to share this experience with all the people I care about.” You can check out more on Alex at Chris Duncan Race Cars.
