It’s that time of the year again for the always popular NMRA finals in Bowling Green, Kentucky. Virtually any class that is being led by 1000 points or less is still up for grabs. Also, Saturday will be the make up final eliminations for the NMRA Columbus rain out. Keep it tuned to Stang TV all weekend for the updates and videos from Bowling Green.

Special thanks to our event coverage sponsor SCT Performance, check their fine line of flash tuners out at www.sctflash.com.


Joel Greathouse, who had previously been on quarter mile duties for John Kolivas' Mustang, is now campaigning Brad Medlock's old Super Street Outlaw Mustang, as Medlock has made a switch to Drag Radial. Greathouse is no stranger to Mustang drag racing and use to drive Mark VanMeter's beautiful Outlaw 10.5W Mustang dating back in 2005.


If you are looking for a turn key and fast Drag Radial Mustang, then you need to get a hold of Sean Lyon. With his four year old chassis, Lyon has begin to build a new Mustang for the 2012 series. He doesn't know what he plans to do with it yet, but X275 and maybe a little Super Street Outlaw will probably be where he will be racing.

TEST AND TUNE NOTES - more inside!


Jim Brown is back out with his freshly rebuilt Pro Outlaw 10.5 Mustang that has been converted from nitrous to supercharged. The team has been trashing to get the car here for the race and the first test hit resulted in some parts coming off after the burn out. For their second test and tune pass, Brown lifted mid track after a strong 60 foot.


One racer we were happy to see here this weekend is Victor Nieblas, who suffered a massive heart attack while preparing for the NMRA Georgia race back in April. We are happy to report that he is healthy enough now to be back behind the wheel.

Robbie Blankenship is in a heated battle against 2011 (and multi-time) champion Charlie Booze. Blankenship won his first Hot Street championship in 2008, finished second in 2009 and third in 2010.

QUALIFYING ROUND 2 AND 3 RECAP NOTES INSIDE!


Don't count out Tim Essick out of the 2011 Pro Outlaw 10.5 championship, who is within striking distance of defending champion Mike Murillo. Essick laid down his fastest pass of the weekend on his last qualiying attempt with a 6.781, putting him about a tenth slower than Murillo's number one spot.


Carlos Sobrino's Milk-Powered, dairy cow Mustang charged into the number one qualifying spot during round two, with a 10.908 @ 122.71 mph pass. It made for an unprecedented weekend of qualifying with four Factory Stock Mustangs in the 10s.
