Special to the Record

Drifting and drag racing were featured Saturday at Saratoga Speedway.

Round three of the drifting competition was won by #26 Alex Davidson, who once against beat out #4 Andrew Otteson to win his third straight drifting race. In heads-up drag racing, Tyler Bodkin of Courtenay drove his 300-horsepower 2005 G35 Infiniti coupe to victory lane.

In the drifting, four cars made it through to the quarter-finals; Davidson and Otteson competed for first and second, with third and fourth being fought out between #14 Kyle Fallowfield and #15 Tom Flagel.

After meeting up in the finals in the first two rounds, Davidson and Otteson once again squared off in the finals, with Davidson again emerging victorious. After just missing out on the finals, Fallowfield dominated Flagel to take home third.
