With the fastest trap speed of 84.5 mph in an eighth of a mile, Minot's Kyle Berry won the first Pickup Truck Championship Race at Magic City International Dragway this weekend.
Berry hit the top speed in his 2008 Chevy Silverado with a 6.6-liter Duromax engine and twin turbochargers.
"I think I could have gone faster if I'd been better on the starting line," Berry told MCID.

MCID will hold an IHRA-sanctioned points race next weekend. Cars, motorcycles and junior dragsters will compete.
