PSCA California Nationals May 21, 2011

WINNER - DALE SNOKE

R/U - RICK SHELMAN

Another exciting weekend was had by the group, this time in fontana. We had 2 first time finalists with our group with Dale Snoke coming out on top. The parity among these cars and drivers makes this the most exciting class to watch in drag racing. The PSCA was very receptive and we received plenty of very kind comments, hopefully we can run more with them in the future. Photos courtesy Mike Morgan http://bowtie0069.fotki.com

Mopars at the Strip April 8-10, 2011

WINNER - JOHN CALVERT

R/U - DAVID FRANKLIN

We had a great weekend at MATS 2011 despite temps in the 40s and even a brief snow flurry. Managed to get passes in every day with Sunday eliminations turning out to be great in terms of weather. The fans loved the MOPARS vs Brand X format even if they ended up with 2 Fords in the final. Several of the AFXers gave the purpose built wheelstander on the property a run for its money keeping the fans thrilled. The venue was fantastic and the Painters treated us great so we cant wait to return. John Calvert won with his 4 speed stocker while David Franklin got the runner up. Overall a great show with several new cars and a great turnout.

As a side note photo journalist / author Bob Mcclurg was shooting at the event and putting together an article for "Muscle Car Review" magazine which may come out as soon as July or August.
