It had been almost six years since the Hearn family had been to Central Illinois Dragway, but after Friday night’s race, the Litchfield racers may be more frequent visitors to the track in Havana.
Racing on the track where his father David picked up his first win, Timothy “T-Bone” Hearn had a stellar night at CID on July 17, taking second overall to Jenna Riley in the junior dragster division.
The Litchfield 11-year-old won four rounds to get to the final and posted a fantastic .016 reaction time at the start in the final. Hearn would be first to the finish line in the race, but was under his dial-in, giving the win to Riley.
David Hearn also ran at CID, making a few test passes following a complete rebuild in the offseason.
