ROCKINGHAM — It was a weekend full of Morrison Moments at Rockingham Dragway where Dylan Morrison won the All Motor Pro championship and Christian Morrison prevailed in the Front Wheel Drive Heads-Up class during the drag racing portion of the annual Import Face-Off event.


Part of a 40-event national series, the Rockingham stop attracted more than 300 show cars in addition to the 200 cars either racing for cash and titles or taking advantage of the opportunity to test on Rockingham’s high traction quarter mile. In addition, IFO featured a “crank-it-up” stereo sound competition, a burnout contest, 2 Step competition, DJs, music and models.

Dylan Morrison drove his 1993 Honda Civic past the ’93 Civic of Garner’s Devadia Riovo to win the All Motor title while Christian Morrison upset No. 1 qualifier Shawn Manyvong of Charlotte to win in Front Wheel Drive. Other winners included James Dean of Little River, S.C., who won in the Forced Induction Pro category, and Touchua Yang of Kannapolis, who prevailed
