NMRA VS. NMCA AND EAST COAST VS. WEST COAST!
The upcoming NMRA vs. NMCA Super Bowl of Street Legal Drag Racing, presented by Strange Engineering, gets a lot of hype. There's a reason for that; it's the largest gathering of heads-up and street legal muscle cars in the country! From 5-second Pro Modifieds to 13-second True Street cars, this race holds a lot of prestige for whoever ends up in the winner's circle on Sunday.

Winning this race is unlike any other, because it's the muscle car event of the year, and for the past eight years it has lived up to it's name and the hype associated with it. The tradition continues July 10-13 as more than 400 racers gather at Route 66 Raceway - doing their best to earn a piece of Joliet gold.

One of those racers will be James Lawrence who will be competing in the Street Outlaw class. Lawrence, from Temecula, Calif., is one of a handful of racers from the West Coast who will be doing his best to prove his mettle among some of the best outlaw racers in the country, as he tries to dispel the myth that West Coast racers can't compete with their East Coast counterparts.

"We wanted to measure ourselves against some of the legends in Street Outlaw. It will be great to do battle with guys like (John) Urist, (Phil) Hines, (Sean) Ashe and the others. It's a long tow and not cheap, but this thing should be a blast. Plus we're looking forward to racing at the facility," Lawrence said.

"I think sometimes the West Coast gets a bad rap racer-wise that we can't compete. Frankly, you have to race the surface and deal with the air density, and most often times we don't have the ability to lay all of the power down," Lawrence continued. "Moon shots and record runs aren't the way to end up with the check at the end of the weekend. There is some REAL talent out here on the West Coast that can run with anyone in the country." Lawrence will soon get his chance to carry the flag for his western counterparts as he tries to enter the six-second zone in his high-flying Camaro.


MORE THAN DRAG RACING... CAR SHOW, GIANT MIDWAY & MORE!
Have an under-construction '54 Ford pickup that you just dropped a late-model Cobra engine into? Or what about the '70 SS 454 LS6 Chevelle you've been hiding in the garage for a while?

The car show features many different awards that are presented on both Saturday and Sunday. The "Show 'n Shine" in Illinois is populated with all sorts of awesome machines making it one of the largest shows of the year. This stop on the tour also brings in one of the largest Manufacturer's Midways around, where you can see and purchase parts from the hottest aftermarket manufacturers. Talk to experts from all over the country to answer your questions about how to make your American car or truck perform to your expectations. Last year, this was the largest gathering of American muscle in the country - you can't miss this once-in-a-lifetime event!

8th Annual JE Pistons NMCA Muscle Car Nationals Race Wrap



8th Annual JE Pistons NMCA Muscle Car Nationals Race Wrap

Summit Motorsports Park hosts huge event that featured record runs, personal bests and non-stop excitement for everyone!

Santa Ana, CA (August 25, 2014) - Incredible. That's the only word to use when describing this past weekend's 8th Annual JE Pistons NMCA Muscle Car Nationals featuring the Chevrolet Performance LSX Challenge Series.



The fifth race of the Flowmaster NMCA Drag Racing Series, featuring NHRA Unleashed presented by Aerospace Components, produced record runs and personal bests at Summit Motorsports Park. Despite high levels of humidity and warm temperatures, the legendary track surface at Summit Motorsports Park delivered consistent traction, allowing drivers and crew chiefs to remove the "guess factor" on a proper setup.

In Kooks Pro Mod, Steve Summers led the field in qualifying with an incredible 5.88/256 MPH run. Summers' performance took him to the final where he met Josh Green, who had been running consistent numbers all weekend long - also in the five-second range. In the final, it was all Team Green after Summers' left the starting line with a disappointing -.001 red light. Green went on to take the stripe with a 5.97 run.



Mickey Thompson Radial Wars featured 17 cars in competition with DeWayne Mills leading the pack after unloading a 4.22/192 MPH eighth-mile qualifying run. In eliminations, Mills and his Camaro would end up facing Jason Rueckert driving his familiar Olds G-Body - a race Mills would win 4.26 to 4.34.

Andy Manson lowered the boom in Stainless Works Street Outlaw after setting a new ET record of 6.94. Manson ran the table in eliminations, beating Dwayne Barbaree in the final after Barbaree went red.

In Edelbrock Xtreme Street, David Hutnick and his Camaro dominated the class with a 7.74/177 MPH qualifying hit, followed by consistent runs through eliminations. In the final, he met the Mustang of Dan Baumann who posted a nice 7.95, but that wasn't enough to overcome the 7.83 from Hutnick.



Don Baskin and his Cutlass carved their way through the ARP Nitrous Pro Street field to face Kevin Parent in the final. At the finish line it was Baskin taking the 7.38 to 7.42 win over Parent's Nova.

In N/A 10.5 action, Leonard Long and his Mustang led a large crowd of all-motor cars in qualifying (7.97) and then found the winner's circle on Sunday after beating Mike DeMayo in the 8.07 to 8.14 final.

In the index classes, Dallas Schultz followed his father Dave's Joliet win with one of his own in ATI Nostalgia Super Stock after beating Ricky Newmeyer in the final.

In Detroit Locker Truetrac Nostalgia Muscle Car, Dan Fotti ousted Bryan Parker in the final round while in Magnafuel Open Comp, Mike VanHoose defeated Chuck Hockenberry for the win. Chris Bishir won Gear Vendors True Street by pushing his Chevrolet truck to a 9.13 average.



In the Chevrolet Performance LSX Challenge Series, the "Ohio Boys" Mike Brown and Mark Koehler dominated the JE Pistons Drag Radial class, as they qualified on top of the field and then faced each other in the final round, where Brown's 4.47 topped Koehler's 4.97 in the eighth-mile race. In ERL All Motor, Judson Massingill and his Camaro, who qualified on top with an 8.16, defeated Robert Strong's Monte Carlo in the final after Strong left the starting line too soon. Racers in Holley EFI Real Street were knocking on the seven-second door all weekend, and that barrier was finally crossed in the final round, as Kevin Rounsavall and his Camaro dropped a 7.99/172 MPH hit in the final to defeat Adam Preston. In the LSX index classes, David Rickey topped Travis Martin and Jenna Pierce-Wilson defeated Andrew Cowherd in the final of LME 5th Generation Camaro.

This NMCA event also included the Ford Racing Cobra Jet Shootout - a gathering of the nation's Cobra Jet owners who use this special event as a tune-up for the U.S. Nationals held in Indianapolis on Labor Day weekend. Winners included: Paul Candies who defeated Phillip Myers in Super Stock, Brett Candies who bested Anthony Bonjiovanni in CIC, and John Calvert who defeated Chris Holbrook in Top Stock. In a special runoff between Calvert and Candies to determine the "King of the Cobra Jets" Calvert prevailed.

In Summit Motorsports Park bracket action, Michael Toombs won in the Electronics class, while John Gregory won the Non-Electronics class.

Race Wrap: NMCA World Finals at Indy



13th Annual FEL-PRO NMCA
World Finals Race Wrap
2014 NMCA Flowmaster Drag Racing Series & Chevrolet Performance LSX Challenge Series Come To A Close at Lucas Oil Raceway in Indy

Santa Ana, CA (October 15, 2014) - Cool October weather set the stage for big performances at the NMCA's final race of the year at Lucas Oil Raceway in Indianapolis, and as expected, records fell in a number of classes and numerous upsets made for an exciting finale of the Flowmaster series at the 13th Annual FEL-PRO NMCA World Finals. Race teams put it all on the line to win the Aerospace Components NHRA Unleashed Wally and collect as many points as possible to achieve championship status.



Kooks Pro Mod saw four cars qualify in the 5.80-5.90 range - a feat that had never occurred before in NMCA competition. As these ultra-fast machines went through the rounds, Steve Summers' parachutes failed to deploy after his semifinal win. A subsequent thrash ensued and he made the lane call to square off against Michael Biehle II in the final. Biehle's Boss Mustang Pro Mod was at the top of its game this weekend, and secured the event win with a 5.89 at 251 mph pass, while Summers broke traction early in the run.

In Mickey Thompson's Radial Wars, DeWayne Mills faced off against Keith Berry, both of who had posted times in the 4-teens all weekend. Both cars left hard and Mill's front wheels slowly crept into the air past the 60-foot clocks. At the eight-mile marker, Mills was first, stopping the clocks in a staggering 4.08 seconds at 197 mph. Berry wasn't far behind at 4.11, his best effort of the weekend. The side-by-side final goes into the record books as the fastest side-by-side run in 1/8-mile drag radial competition.

ARP Nitrous Pro Street saw Don Baskin put up a stout 7.19 in Round 2 and backed it up with a 7.20 in Round 3. Greg Delaney didn't show up for what would be an all-Baskin-Truck-Sales final, allowing Don Baskin to solo for the win.



The Edelbrock Xtreme Street class was one of the most exciting classes of the weekend with wild wheelstands and wicked performances. The chilly weather saw the ET record bounce from competitor to competitor as the weekend progressed. In the final round of action, John Warren left hard, and early, in his yellow Nova charging to a red-lighted 7.84. Dave Hutnick ran 7.75 at 178 mph for the win.

Traveling all the way from Florida, Robbie Blankenship squared off against Rocko Khoury in the FSC NA 10.5 final. Khoury left first and charged to an 8.04, but it wasn't enough to edge out Blankenship's 7.90 at 170mph performance.

Dwayne Barbaree was the Stainless Works Street Outlaw points leader coming into Indy, and he wasn't about to let that go, despite Phil Hines taking the number 1 qualifier spot with a low-ET-of-the-weekend 6.85 and a top speed of 205.76. The pin had been pulled, though, as Hines engine let go in the semifinals. That set up Barbaree vs. Andy Manson for the final. Barbaree was first to leave, but it was a close race to the end, with Barbaree edging out Manson with a 6.971 to Manson's 6.973.

In ATI Performance Nostalgia Super Stock, it was an all-Mopar final with Jan Niceswanger's '65 Coronet facing Mike DeChicco's '65 Coronet. The better light by Niceswanger was the deciding factor as his 10.52 ET on a 10.50 dial-in was further off than DeChicco's 9.75 on a 9.75 effort.



Chris Stephenson took his '73 Buick Apollo to the Detroit Truetrac Nostalgia Muscle Car winner's circle in Indy after defeating Gerry Vizzo and his '67 Chevy II Nova. Vizzo made a run for the win cutting a .005 light, but he was a tenth off at the stripe while Stephenson was closer with an 11.56 on an 11.50 dial-in.

MagnaFuel Open Comp saw the top points-holding racers bow out early in Indy. In the final round, it was Louie Raffetto and his '66 Chevy II against Kevin Skinner in his 2014 Cobra Jet Mustang. Skinner had the slightly better light, but Raffetto was closer to his dial-in at the finish line. Raffetto, ran a 9.477 on a 9.45 dial-in, while Skinner was 8.55 on an 8.50 dial-in.

Thirty-three of the thirty-eight cars entered in Gear Vendors True Street finished the abbreviated two-run True Street schedule, and recent NMRA Bowling Green True Street winner, Cal Haywood, was in attendance to take home another win. Despite some startling-line issues, Haywood put up an 8.17 on his first run and slammed it home with a 7.85 for an 8.01 average-just a tad slower than his 7.73 from the NMRA World Finals in Bowling Green, KY. Scott Klepinger brought home the Runner-Up award with an 8.69 average.



A teaser for the 2015 season, spectators got to see a number of Top Sportsman racers competing this weekend. Clocking high-7 and low-6-second times, the Top Sportsman door-slammer class will fit in nicely right behind Kooks Pro Mod.

As part of the NHRA Unleashed program presented by Aerospace Components, all of the points-class winners received an official Wally for their efforts. As this event finishes the NMCA season for 2014, it also concludes the Unleashed program with NHRA.

8th Annual Chevrolet Performance LSX Challenge Series

The LME 5th Gen Camaro class featured six entries with Ronnie Hackelton the number 1 qualifier. Hackelton then made his way to the finals where he faced off against Tom Calabrese. After Hackelton turned on the red light, Calabrese ran it out the back door, running 11.96 on his 12.00 dial-in.

In Proform LSX Rumble competition, Nicholas Massengale qualified on top, but it was Kevin Lumsden that dropped a .003 light on Kurt Anderson who wasn't far behind with a .029. Anderson went 10.006 on his 10.00 dial while Lumsden ran 10.030 on his 10.00 for the win.

Holley EFI Real Street was all about Louie Fillipides and his American Racing Headers 2010 Camaro. Fillipides was number one qualifier and top speed holder for the class, and his 7.84 at 176 was too much for Adam Preston and his 7.94 at 170mph effort. The Baskin train kept rolling as Don Baskin's '67 Chevy II was victorious in ERL Performance All-Motor. Baskin's 8.31 was too great for Robert Strong and his Monte Carlo's 8.62 to beat.

Anthony Manna was top qualifier and the top-speed holder coming into JE Piston Drag Radial eliminations. Manna charged to the final where he met up with the quick Corvette of Mark Carlyle. Carlyle had a slight advantage at the start, but encountered problems as Manna drove around his 6.36 with a 4.59 at 167mph performance.

Fifty-seven cars made up the Gear Vendors LSX True Street class. All but a handful made it through the two rounds of competition. It was Don Rensch and his '72 Nova averaged 8.29 for the win, while Tim LeMay and his '87 Buick Regal weren't close behind in the Runner-Up spot with an 8.64 average.
