LAS VEGAS --
The Pacific Street Car Association Presented by Chris Alston’s Chassisworks announced the full schedule for its 2012 racing season Monday. The PSCA’s 13th
season will kick off Feb. 17-19 at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway and wrap up Nov. 2-4 at Auto Club Dragway in Fontana, Calif.
The PSCA, featuring seven heads up classes, four bracket classes, and three index classes, are headlined by Pro Street, a low six-second doorslammer class with cars rocketing down the quarter mile at 245 mph.
"The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway and Auto Club Dragway are two of the finest facilities in the country and I am proud to hold our PSCA events at these prestigious tracks" PSCA President Mel Roth said. "This season is going to be record-setting year and track managers Chris Blair (Las Vegas) and Mark Dawson (Fontana) have assembled crews to make the PSCA racing experience not only fast and exciting, but fun as well.”
Blair, fresh off having his facility named as the NHRA Division 7 Track of the Year for 2011, is looking forward to the return of some of the best drag racing the West Coast region has to offer both fans and racers.
“The Pacific Street Car Association has been a tremendous partner with Las Vegas Motor Speedway since we opened our new facility in 2000," said Blair, the Las Vegas Motor Speedway vice president of racing operations. "Through the years the efforts of the organization to produce amazing racing, along with our state-of-the-art facility, has produced more than just races; we have produced ‘happenings’.”
