Kicking off the '09 season in record-setting fashion, Jason Lee put up the number and backed it up, too, to become the first Drag Radial racer in the 7-second zone. He qualified in the top spot with a just-on-the-cusp 8.001/175.13. After a first-round single, Jason lowered the boom on Matt Bell with a 7.987/174.55 ripper. After only beating Sonny Biggs with an 8.10, Jason set the stage for a titanic battle with Sean Lyon's consistent low-8-second player. If Jason felt the pressure, it didn't show. He was just a tick slow on the tree, but laid down a punishing 7.974/174.85 pass to take out Sean and cement his name in the Drag Radial history books.
