MORGANO MAKING HIS MARK IN OUTLAW 10.5 COMPETITION

 

Many racing experts would agree that Outlaw 10.5 racing peaked in the mid-2000s once the Outlaw Racing Street Car Association (ORSCA) was created and it organized a 10-race series, but a lack of a rules package that allowed better-funded teams to run roughshod over the rest of the competition drove many racers away, and by the early part of this decade, the class was in dire straits.

One group of Outlaw 10.5 racers, under the tutelage of Jim Halsey and Dave O’Donnell at Cecil County Dragway, decided to reign in the class and set parameters that would equal the playing field. Those efforts eventually resulted in the creation of the Mickey Thompson Outlaw 10.5 National Championship Series by Jerry Morgano, who now serves as director of the series.
