WIDENER HEADLINES NMCA WINNERS AT SUPER BOWL OF STREET LEGAL DRAG RACING

 

While rain threatened to steal the racers’ thunder, it wasn’t able to as they dug in and dispatched profuse power during the Nitto Tire NMRA/NMCA Super Bowl presented by HPJ Performance, July 30-August 2 at World Wide Technology Raceway in Madison, Illinois.

They were aiming for the Aerospace Components Winner’s Circle and the storied Super Bowl shootout portion of the event, where NMCA winners and NMRA winners run off for a coveted Nitto Tire Diamond Tree Championship Ring, cash and a claim to fame. This marked the first time the event, traditionally held at Route 66 Raceway in Joliet, Illinois, was contested at World Wide Technology Raceway, and it was a success.

On the NMCA side, the VP Racing Lubricants Xtreme Pro Mod category was as cutthroat as ever, with most of the racers recording 3-second runs in qualifying, and leading the charge was Jim Widener, who wheeled to a 3.70 in his Corvette. The Indiana-based hot-shoe hauled to the final round of eliminations to face California-based ace Eric Gustafson. Either driver could have won the edge-of-your-seat race, but Widener got to the finish line first, despite an explosion under his car, with a 3.74, and Gustafson was not far behind with a 3.78.

K&N FLING EVENT ORGANIZERS REVISE SCHEDULE FOR 2020

 

With the K&N Spring Fling Galot presented by Optima in the rear-view mirror, co-promoters, Peter Biondo and Kyle Seipel, have been diligently trying to piece together their remaining 2020 event schedule.

“We have been working closely with our partner tracks to come up with a game plan for our Fall events,” explained Biondo. “After discussing our options and realizing the commitment we have to our racers and sponsors, we decided it was time to put a plan in place. This is exciting stuff and I think racers will be pumped up to hear what we have planned.”

Perhaps the biggest news starts with the move of the previously scheduled K&N Spring Fling Million event, which was set to happen in April at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. This event will now take place at Bristol Dragway on September 28 through October 3, taking the place of the previously scheduled Fall Fling at Bristol. The event name, sponsors, structure, and guaranteed purses will all remain the same.
