LAS VEGAS -- Being the No. 1 qualifier in a
drag race theoretically gives a racer an
during eliminations because, on paper at least, the opponent doesn't
have as strong a car. Mickey Thompson wants to give top qualifiers a
DEFINITE advantage on the line at the Super Chevy Show at Bandimere
Speedway Aug. 17-18 by awarding a new set of drive tires to the pole
sitters in the Pacific Street Car Association classes.
"PSCA's Hot Street and Outlaw 10.5
racers are not only battling for supremacy at Bandimere in
eliminations," sanction president Mel Roth said, "they're also fighting
for a set of rear tires for the top qualifier. Every drag racer out
there knows the value of free equipment, especially when it comes to the
quality product Mickey Thompson brings to the track. I have a feeling
qualifying will be very interesting at Super Chevy."
Roth went on to say work continues in the effort to bring a full-blown
PSCA or Street Car Super Nationals event to the Denver area. "(Mickey
Thompson Tires Director of Motosports) Tom Kundrik sees the value of
bringing an event to the region," Roth said. "He wants his company
involved in a Colorado race just like they've been involved with PSCA
races since our early days."
