LAS VEGAS –
Street Car Super Nationals X Presented by Chris Alston’s Chassisworks was billed as the race where records are shattered. It has lived up to the billing.
After Larry Larson set the record for quickest and fastest street car on Friday with a 6.068-second ET at 241 mph, Turky al Zafiri got back to business Saturday in the EFIStore.com Outlaw Pro Mod class. At Anarchy at the Arch at Gateway Motorsports Park in August, al Zafiri set the doorslammer ET record with a 5.461-second pass at 272.83 mph and backed it up in the finals with a 272.50 mph run. He rocketed to No. 1 at the Pacific Street Car Association’s annual drag race extravaganza at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, passing Mike Maggio, who entered the day as the provisional pole sitter, with another 272.50 mph pass with an ET of 5.616 seconds. The reigning St. Louis SCSN champ will have a bye in the first round Sunday.
In the Precision Pro Mod group, Don Walsh Jr., maintained his lead over the pack with a 5.749-second ET at 257.53 mph. He will also have a first-round bye in Sunday’s eliminations. Roger Holder continued to blow away the competition Saturday night with the Pro Radial record of 6.138-seconds at 243.33 mph.
