The Pacific Street Car Association is set to bring it’s much-heralded Street Car Super Nationals to the midwest for the first time with the inaugural running of the ‘Arnachy At The Arch’ this weekend under the lights at the Gateway Motorsports Park just outside of St. Louis. Many of the top racers in the nation have made the trek for what could be a record-breaking — but certainly exciting — event, and we’ll have all of the coverage right here on Dragzine all weekend long!





Less than a week ago, Australian star Paul Mouhayet’s trip to the United States was in jeopardy after a high-speed crash off the end of the Sydney Dragway in his Outlaw 10.5 Mustang that caused then-unknown injuries to his ankle. But not one to let a little bump in the road deter him, Mouhayet and company hopped on a bird destined for Missouri to give their brand new Tim McAmis-built Pro Modified machine a thorough flogging. And that they did: after a shutoff run in the 5.80′s last night, Mouhayet cooked the already red-hot Gateway quarter-mile to the tune of a 5.75 at 260 MPH and change in testing this afternoon, setting the bar really high for the rest of the Outlaw Pro Mod class.

You’re looking at the quickest door car in the world -1/8-mile and 1/4-mile – on its way to the quickest pass in history at 5.590-seconds. The bad news for the rest of the class is this was Taylors’ first hit right off the trailer, and not only did it bobble early, but the 250 MPH speed indicates he tossed the laundry a little early. 5.40′s, anyone?

Local Missourian Scott Lowery campaigns this stunning Cadillac CTS-V in Outlaw 10.5 with a turbocharged Hemi between the pipes. Lowery gets assistance from fellow St. Louis-area racers Mark Micke and Mark Woodruff, so he’s certainly not short on knowledge. Lowery current sits fourth in qualifying after two sessions with a 4.63 best.



Outlaw 8.5 racer Jason Kenzevich towed his great-looking '90 Mustang out from Las Vegas to contest the Anarchy at the Arch this weekend. Kenzevich recently hurt his primary motor while testing in Denver, and was forced to turn to the stock-block big block Chevrolet you see here, featuring Dart Pro 1 heads, an Edelbrock intake, and a single plate nitrous oxide setup. Kenzevich was the Outlaw 8.5 champion with the PSCA in 2012 and still carries the No. 1 on the car, but alternates between 275 radial racing and 8.5 depending on the event, and has been 4.90's on the 275's and 5.20's on the small slick. He currently sits ninth in the order with a 5.50.

270 MPH in a door car? You'd better believe it. The Q80 Racing team and tuner Steve Petty and driver Turky al Zafiri made the call for the fifth and final qualifying session and boy did they they ever close the night out in style, becoming the first team to ever top (or even approach) the 270 mark. Al Zafiri, showing his mettle behind the wheel, drove the car from right of the groove right through the boards to a 5.53.

Here’s Frankie “The Madman” Taylor’s weekend resume, in order from right to left. According to Taylor, his screw-blown Corvette started eating up the blower belt at half track and finally departed just before the finish line on the 5.52 run, cutting his speed down to a mere (relatively speaking) 251 MPH. Taylor and his crew chief and brother, Paul Taylor, are confident the Stupid Fast machine can go a 5.48 or .49 tomorrow evening if they can keep the car happy for 1,320 feet.

We can't make this stuff up, ladies and gents. In the semifinal round of Outlaw Pro Mod, Q80 Racing's Turky al Zafiri uncorked the quickest and fastest pass in door car racing history with a mind-numbing 5.47 at 272 MPH! In the final round, he'll face the man he's battled tooth and and nail with all weekend long, Frankie Taylor, in what could be the most epic match in Pro Modified history.
