Outlaw Pro Mod

The Q80 Racing Team dominated at this years Street Car Super Nationals with Turky Al Zafari leading the charge qualifying #1 with a 5.599@272.50 closely followed by Eric Dillard in the #2 spot at 5.625@269.51. The two held the field back through eliminations, although another NCRC customer, John Stanley, almost took out Al Zafari in round three with a big holeshot in a very close race where he ran 5.567@270 to Stanley’s 5.69@216. Dillard on the other side of the ladder defeated a red lighting Mike Maggio in the semi-finals, but hurt the engine in the process. It would have been a awesome sight for both Q80 Teammates to go at it in the final, but Dillard wasn’t able to make the call giving Turky a bye in the final for the well deserved win!

Congratulations to Turky, Eric and the Q80 Racing Team on a dominating performance!!!

Wild Street

Eric Gustafson and the R&E Racing Team kept their winning streak alive at SCSN, the 2014 WCHRA & NMCA West Champion qualified #1 with a 4.456@162.88 which also broke his previous PSCA Wild Street Record in the process and became the Wild Street first car to the 4.40’s! It’s amazing how much this team picked up since last year at the same race where he set the record with a 4.56@157, that’s a big gain and very serious ET for combo this would be X275 if it wasn’t for his billet block!

Eric meet up with the #2 qualifier, Chris Grooves in an “All NCRC” final round for a very good race. Groves was on his game and cut a .014 light to Gustafson’s .032 but didn’t quite have enough to hold Eric off, he went 4.501 to Chris’s 4.522.

Congratulations to Eric & the R&E Racing Team on the win and new Wild Street Record and to Chris on his Runner Up!!! Good job fella’s !!!

We’ve got to give a shout out to Mustang Mike Modeste, he ripped off a blazing fast pass at MIR November 11th when he was there testing. Mike went 4.179@179.66 making him the 2nd fastest ProCharger car on 275’s, right on the heals of David Pearson’s 4.1698.

Interestingly, the 1/4 mile clocks were on, take a look at the back half it made not even on a full pass – 6.686@161.36. We’re not sure exactly where he lifted, but it would have been interesting to see what it would have ran out the back door too!

Way to go Mike!!

Richard Sexton First to the Threes in Outlaw 10.5

Richard Sexton broke the 3 second barrier last weekend at Maryland International Raceway when he laid down the first 3.99 pass in Outlaw 10.5 History (Cecil Country Rules). Richard ran a 1.05, 2.72, 3.997@194.66, then backed it up later with a 4.001 to prove it was no fluke. Team Mobley was also the #1 qualifier setting the MIR Track record in the process with a 6.08@238!

Unfortunately the team hurt the engine and weren’t able to continue eliminations, but you can bet that was a good day with a history making pass!

Big Congratulations Richard and the Mobley Motorsports Team!!

Mean Dean Marinis got the win in the X275 Vs. Hot Rod class at the Haltech World Cup Finals November 19th. Normally a 1/8th mile car that runs X275 class, Marinis had to run it out the back at this race. With the Nitrous shutting off early and running out of gear he still ran a 7.15@171 MPH which qualified him in the #2 spot. In the final he spun a bit, but still beat Tony Alm and was able to collect the $5,000 check in the winners circle!

Congratulations Dean and the Marinis Motorsports Team!!!
