Keith Neal started of the 2009 season strong with a big win at Bradenton. He was working hard to close it out in fine fashion too. He qualified just a couple ticks behind eventual champ Dan Millen with a 6.91/200 rip. That ranking squared Keith's twin-turbo, small-block '04 Cobra against Dwayne James in Round 1. Fortunately for Keith, Dwayne was way off pace with an 11-second pass, so Keith cruised to the win. Round 2 found Keith taking on Dan "The Desert Eagle" Millen. Both racers were a bit off their qualifying pace, but Keith was quicker on the Tree and faster to the stripe for the win. Alas, the flip of the coin didn't fall his way.
