For the first two episodes of The Great 8, the 405 will be on top once the show airs on the Discovery Channel. On Friday night at New England Dragway and Motorsports Park in Epping, New Hampshire, there was a new 405 winner.

“Daddy Dave” Comstock defeated Ryan Martin to complete the action that began at Maple Grove Raceway in Mohnton, Pennsylvania. Due to rain on Friday and Saturday, Pilgrim Studios — which films the show for the Discovery Channel — was not able to complete the event near Amish Country.

Only two races of the show were able to be completed at Maple Grove Raceway. In the first race, Martin defeated Jerry Bird, who nearly saw the two-time Street Outlaws No Prep Kings champion crash in front of him.

Martin nearly hit the wall. However, he was able to save it and not do any damage to his newly rebuilt car that he had just got back right before the Maple Grove filming.

Then, Justin Swanstrom defeated “Super Dave” Adkins in the second race. Swanstrom experienced a fire midway through his race.

Then, towards the finish line, Adkins crashed into the rear end of Swanstrom’s Prenup. This caused extensive damage to Prenup.

Daddy Dave is the second driver to win this new format that took the place of Team Attack, which aired last year. Martin defeated Bird in the final round of the Great 8 at Virginia Motorsports Park in North Dinwiddie, Virginia.
