FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
PSCA Record Breaker Nats Live Up To Its Name
Brandon W. Mudd
LAS VEGAS --
The Pacific Street Car Association’s 2012 season opener, the Record Breaker Nationals held at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, lived up to its name with ET and speed records falling in four different classes.
To qualify for an official record, the driver must back up his/her record within one percent, on the previous or following pass, at the same event. The car must also have passed the minimum weight requirements and a new technical inspection (after the record-setting pass). Establishing a new record will give the driver bonus points (10pts ET - 10pts mph). The driver who has the record at the end of the event will receive the bonus points.
The following class records were set at The Strip:
Hughes Performance Pro Street: Mike Maggio, 5.937 second ET, 245.85 mph.
MagnaFuel X-Treeme Drag Radial/TT-5 (eighth-mile): Rich Hoyle, 4.724 second ET, Al Jimenez, 155.13 mph
Ross Racing Pistons Outlaw 8.5 (eighth-mile): DJ Reid, 5.220 second ET, 141.74 mph.
Mickey Thompson Tires Wild Street: Kevin Young, 7.599 second ET, 190.14 mph.
“We couldn’t have asked for better conditions,” said PSCA President Mel Roth. “Between the weather and the amazing track prep by Chris Blair and his crew at The Strip, our drivers know every time they race in Las Vegas, they have a chance to make the run of a lifetime. We can’t wait to come back for our next event April 27-29.”
