FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
PSCA Sept. Event at Fontana Moved to Vegas

LAS VEGAS --
With the future of the Auto Club Dragway in Fontana, Calif., up in the air and one Pacific Street Car Association event there already canceled, the decision has been made to move the Lucas Oil/Slick Mist Drags originally scheduled for Fontana to The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway Sept. 7-9. All PSCA classes, including Lucas Oil Top Comp and Jr. Dragster, will be contested at the event.
Mel Roth, PSCA president, worked with Las Vegas Motor Speedway Vice President of Racing Operations Chris Blair to ensure participants in the West Coast’s premiere drag racing series would have a place to compete.
“Once again,” Roth said, “we are indebted to Chris Blair and his staff at The Strip. We are doing everything possible to relocate any events loss due to the unfortunate situation at Fontana and once again would like to thank Chris for stepping up and giving PSCA racers a place to race.”
"The loss of both the Fontana and Irwindale drag strips is a tough blow to our racing family," Blair said. "We hope that by working with the various groups that supported these tracks during this difficult time, we can keep more racers interested in the sport until all of the issues are resolved and things are back to normal.
“The addition of the September event places a PSCA event between our TRE Bracket Series/So-Cal Pro Gas event of Labor Day weekend and our Super Chevy event of Sept. 15-16. Racers will have the opportunity to leave their rigs here at LVMS and get three great weekends of racing without the expense of towing their rigs back-and-forth."
The Strip is host to the next event on the PSCA calendar April 27-29. For more information on Las Vegas Motor Speedway and its events, visit their Web site at LVMS.com or on Facebook at Facebook.com/TheStripAtLVMS.
