Big congratulations to Stevie “Fast” Jackson and “The Shadow” owned by Phil Shuler on their Radial Vs. The World Win at Lights Out 6 February 22nd. The Shadow, Shuler’s Grudge car, was recently switched over to a blower and with the help of a handful of very sharp racers, it was running hard right off the trailer. Jackson ran a 4.026@191.29 in the final round over a broken Chris Daniel which also set Low ET for the race.

Congratulations to Steve, Phil, the Tutterows, and the rest of the Team on big win!

We also want to give a shout out to Jason Michalak who brought out his brand new blown¬†Vette to Lights Out 6, he was definitely buzzing the tower the new car!! Jason was #1 Qualifier and was going rounds like a bracket car in the 4.0’s but broke a crankshaft in the process ending their progress too early. No doubt Jason and his all star team of Billy Stocklin and Frankie Taylor will be back again making RVW¬†competition that much harder. Way to go guys!

We hated to see local racer Dewayne Mill’s accident in RVW, thankfully he was not injured! You can bet he’ll be back, faster and strong than ever…

King Tut came out of the gate swinging for the fences at the 2015 US Nationals at Bradenton Motorsports Park. The Galot Motorsports team was testing some new blower combination and apparently it worked pretty good as they qualified #1 in Xtreme Pro Mod with a 3.569@209.88.

Tutterow defeated Adam Flamholc in the “All NCRC” final round with a 3.60@207 when Flamholc had to abort when his 63 Corvette made a hard left after launch.

Congratulations to Todd Tutterow and the Galot Motorsports Team on their 1st win of the season!

We’d also like to congratulate Adam Flamholc and the MMR Racing team, they had a tough weekend with parts failures, but did manage to lay down a new best of 3.61@211 during qualifying and they made it to the final round! Congratulations guys!
