Wild Mustang action from the 13th Annual Street Car Super Nationals
Mike Bowman came full circle Sunday evening at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, earning his second-straight Precision Turbo Pro Mod victory at the Nitrous Outlet Street Car Super Nationals 13, Presented by Speed Society in a span that also saw him earn the win at the Drag Illustrated World Series of Pro Mod earlier this year.
Tom Bailey joined in all the way from Orion, Michigan earned the class top qualifier with an ET of 5.750 seconds, but Bowman’s speed of 270 mph flat was an incredible benchmark that wouldn’t be topped in Pro Mod. Bowman topped Carl Stevens in the finals with a 5.789 at 260.91 mph over Stevens’ 5.876 at 224.62 mph.
In MagnaFuel XDR presented by TurboSmart, Norman Chang of Atherton, California also went back-to-back piloting his twin turbo small-block Ford Mustang. Chang sweep the class by qualifying number 1, set top speed and low ET of the meet (4.207 at 179.23 mph) then took out fellow Californian Ryan “Toaster” Jones in the final round.
In the Flying A Motorsports Outlaw Pro Mod field, the Mustang of Eric Dillard took the win with a 5.940 at 243.77 mph over John Stanley’s 2015 Cadillac CTS-V after Stanley failed to make a clean pass in the finals. In one of the best side-by-side runs of the weekend, MagnaFuel Outlaw 10.5 champion and number five qualifier Steve Nicholson edged past Giuseppe Gentile, qualifying 11th, with a 3.946 at 183.72 mph over Gentile’s 3.973 at 224.62 mph. Nicholson ran the quickest nitrous assisted 10.5 pass in the world on his way to the victory.
“We had another incredible weekend with some of the fastest and quickest cars in the world,” said SCSN Promoter Mel Roth. “Seeing a guy like Bowman wrap up a year like he’s had with another win is just incredible, seeing the Q80 car of Eric Dillard almost hit 276 mph during qualifying was just unbelievable and the Outlaw 10.5 which I believe is the quickest Side-By-Side 10.5 pass in the world was mind numbing! Every year we say it and every year it comes true: The Street Car Super Nationals are where records are shattered!
“And obviously, we couldn’t do this without our great staff, the incredible LVMS crew led by Jeff Foster here at the track, the racers, our sponsors, and of course, the fans who come here from everywhere and stick around until the very end.”
BE sure to mark your calendars, reserve your flight and room as the Street Car Super Nationals returns for the 14th edition on November 15-18, 2018 at the Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
