9 May 2015 PSCA Spring Nationals

Last weekend we raced the PSCA Spring Break Nationals at Auto Club Dragway at Fontana. Because of a rain out earlier in the season, this particular event was a “double points” race, so it was important that we do well. From the start of qualifying on Saturday, the car was running exceptionally well, and I was able to cut some killer lights, some even close to perfect. We ended Saturday night with the 2014 Championship banquet, where I got to hand out the championship trophies and jackets to last year’s winners and runner ups. It was fun to see everyone’s smiling faces and hear some of the heartfelt championship speeches.
Sunday morning started with two good time runs in the Magnum and we felt that we were in good shape for eliminations. In round one of both Street Muscle and Bracket-1 the win light came on my side of the race track and we were on to round number two in both classes. Then I was off for my regular race day duty of singing the National Anthem in the tower. There were a few new faces in the tower this time, and everyone really enjoyed my rendition of the Nation’s most famous song. Luck was not on our side in round two of eliminations though, and we were done for the day pretty early when the car couldn’t run the number on the window. We were very disappointed as this was a grand opportunity to capitalize on the double points event.
We have decided to race some Divisional races in the Magnum in the Super Street class. We have never raced a Lucas Oil NHRA divisional in the Magnum before, and we’re really looking forward to showing Maggie off to a new crowd of racers and fans. This class is a 10.90 index that leaves off a .500 pro tree. This new racing procedure and rules will take some getting used to and we had to make a few modifications on car set up, but we are excited and think we have a shot at being competitive in this new class. Our first race is May 22-24th at Auto Club Dragway in Fontana. I’ll keep you posted on how the car does, but come on out to the track and cheer us on!
