Brandon W. Mudd
ST. LOUIS – In front of a crowd of rabid fans with chamber of commerce weather conditions, the Street Car Super Nationals returned to Gateway Motorsports Park for Anarchy at the Arch II. Frankie Taylor earned the title in the Flying A Motorsports Outlaw Pro Mod class over No. 1 qualifier Randell Reid in a battle of the LJRC Corvettes. Taylor took the win with an ET of 3.588 seconds at 211.1 mph. This year’s Outlaw Pro Mods ran Gateway’s eighth-mile track while the Precision Turbo Pro Mod class, running NHRA class rules, ran the full quarter mile with top qualifier Kevin Fiscus taking the trophy over Jim Bell with a pass of 5.945 seconds at 232.75 mph.
In one of the biggest upsets of the weekend, SCSN veteran Krusty Ramsey was beat at the stripe for the MMR Outlaw 8.5 title by Jason Collins via a holeshot. Ramsey’s 4.917-second ET at 142.63 mph couldn’t overcome Collins’ 4.936 ET at 142.39 mph thanks to the latter’s quick launch.
In another marquee finals matchup, Mark Luton took the win via a pass of 4.089 seconds at 184.30 mph in the MagnaFuel 315 vs. 10.5 duel over Taylor Lastor. Lastor was also the runner-up in the Mickey Thompson 275 class, falling to Lamar Swindoll Jr’s 4.642-second pass at 156.48 mph who won for the second-straight year.
It wouldn’t be a true SCSN without the breaking of a doorslammer record and Aussie Paul Mouhayet topped the speed record with a quarter-mile pass of 274.33. Making the record pass even more impressive is the fact he drifted towards the center line and had to pedal his machine to the finish line.
Other winners included: Tony Ferguson (ProCharger 235 Limited, 6.711 at 117.55 mph), Jason Philips (Electronics Bracket, 7.657 at 175.75 mph), Jeremy McKague (Calvert No-Electronics, 10.086 at 129.06 mph), Lauren Chamberlin (Jr. Dragster 6-12, 9.272 at 68.33 mph), Kayden Kochler (Jr. Dragster 13+, 8.057 at 79.91 mph), Robbie Freels (Ross Racing Pro 7.0, 7.012 at 194.35 mph), Bo Boles (Phenix Industries Pro 7.5, 7.505 at 175.32 mph), Troy Wilson (Hot Heads Pro Comp, 9.062 at 137.93 mph), and John Troesh (Quick Fuel Pro Gas, 8.945 at 150.77 mph).
