NHRA Pro Stock Results From the US Nationals
Jerry Savoie has made three starts at Indy and been to the final round twice (2011 & 2014). Savoie gets the easy trip to the winner's circle after a redlight by final-round opponent Chip Ellis.
“The last round was not the way we wanted to win, but we held our composure," said Savoie. "We had a good day, and we’ve been blessed.”
Jerry Savoie took home his second NHRA Pro Stock Motorcycle victory of the 2015 season with a 7.011 at 193.02 on his Savoie’s Alligator Farm Suzuki, beating No. 1 qualifier Chip Ellis, who fouled out at the start of the final round on his PiranaZ/Pippin Motorsports Buell. The win was Savoie’s third career victory and his first in Indianapolis. He was the runner-up here in 2011 and 2014. He defeated Chaz Kennedy, Steve Johnson, and Hector Arana Jr. to advance to the final.
“It’s a great day,” said Savoie, who will enter the Countdown as the No. 4 seed. “The last round was not the way we wanted to win, but we held our composure. We had a good day, and we’ve been blessed.”
Chip Ellis and event winner Savoie have each won one time against the other in prior events and this is the first time they have faced each other in a final round. Ellis has a career national event record of six wins and four runner-ups.
Ellis was the No. 1 qualifier and was looking for his first win of the season. Despite the loss, Ellis was able to move around LE Tonglet and earn a Countdown spot.
Scotty Pollacheck secured the final Countdown spot when three-time world champ Angelle Sampey lost in the semifinals.
Excellent reaction times got Angelle Sampey to the US Nationals semi-finals, an event that she has won previously in 2001 and 2002.
