NMRA ALL-FORD WORLD FINALS CROWNS WINNERS

The sun has set on the 2018 NMRA drag racing season and on twenty years of incredibly awesome NMRA All-Ford World Finals competition at Kentucky’s beautiful Beech Bend Raceway Park. Tons of sunshine and great racing allowed the year to wrap up with wins celebrated in the Aerospace Components Winner’s Circle, records, championships, and a whole lot more at the 20th Annual Nitto Tire NMRA World Finals Presented By Holley EFI. Congratulations to all the NMRA racers on another epic season, and to all the event winners and newly-minted season champions.

Andy Manson topped the qualifying order in VP Racing Fuels Street Outlaw with his ’96 Mustang when the man from Manassas, Virginia, cruised the eighth-mile in 4.281 at 175.64 mph. Manson maintained his momentum through to the finals where he met with Alton Clements of Central, South Carolina. Both men left the line hard, but Clements in his newly-acquired ’92 Mustang got the hole shot win on a 4.342 at 167.28 mph blast over Manson’s 4.333 at 169.47 mph effort to capture the NMRA Victor trophy. It wasn’t moot for Manson, though, as he was crowned the champion for 2018.

TIM NICHOLSON'S CLUTCH CAMARO BECOMES A FAN FAVORITE WITH ST LOUIS WIN

 

Tim Nicholson stands as a reminder of the old days of Super Gas racing when in the formative days a 9.90 racer could race competitively without an automatic transmission and mid-range throttle stop. 

RAMPY SCORES NUMBER 99 AT GATEWAY MOTORSPORTS PARK

 

In the final results from the AAA Insurance NHRA Midwest Nationals and the Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series, David Rampy claimed victory and took home is his 99th NHRA national event win this weekend at Gateway Motorsports Park.
 
Rampy, Piedmont, Ala., worked his way through the field and ran 7.240 seconds at 166.13 mph in his final round victory over Allen Wilson, Kokomo, Ind., who clocked in at 8.238 seconds, 163.75 mph. Wilson took the starting line advantage off the line but could not hold off Rampy, giving Rampy win number 99 at the national level.

PAWUK ESTABLISHES NEW FACTORY STOCK SHOWDOWN RECORD

 

The Factory Stock Showdown record took a beating on Saturday at the NHRA Midwest Nationals outside of St. Louis, and not surprisingly it was the two-car Don Schumacher Racing team blistering the mark.

Mark Pawuk nailed the mark in the final qualifying session with a 7.929 elapsed time.

SPARCO FALL FLING – FRIDAY RESULTS

 

It was a long night yesterday before a winner… and a runner-up… both walked away with a new dragster in the American Race Cars/Racetech Super Tuesday Dragster Shootout, but we’re sure Thomas Bell and Corey Gulitti didn’t mind the late night as both walked away winners.

Today began with a single time trial for all competitors followed immediately by eliminations on Yukon Gear & Axle Wednesday, a day where by the end of the night one lucky, and most assuredly talented racer will walk away with $15,000 after his or her win. In addition to the win money, as is always the case at any Fling event, a fair amount of round money and prizes are given away.
