LAS VEGAS — Five Pacific Street Car Association classes will be included in the Fun Ford Weekend event at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway April 20-22 it was announced today.
The following classes will represent PSCA and will earn points that will be counted towards the 2012 championship:
*Hughes Performance Pro Street
*Ross Racing Pistons Outlaw 8.5
*Goodyear Racing Open Comp
*Ford Racing Mustang Maddness
“The PSCA classes that we are adding are a perfect fit for Fun Ford Weekend,’ said Chris Blair, Las Vegas Motor Speedway Vice President of Racing Operations.”This will make the show even more exciting for our Ford enthusiasts.”
The event, one week ahead of the next official PSCA race at The Strip April 27-29, will provide racers in the aforementioned classes the opportunity to race as well as save travel money thanks to the cooperation of Blair and his staff.
“By making the Fun Ford Weekend part of the PSCA Series, it will help the Southern California racers who are currently dealing with the loss of their home tracks,” Blair said. “This will enable them to race with us, leave their rigs here at LVMS and return the following weekend for PSCA. This should dramatically reduce travel costs.”
PSCA President Mel Roth said the event is a welcome addition to the schedule, especially with the races at Auto Club Dragway in Fontana, Calif., currently in limbo.
“Racers race. It’s that simple and we can’t thank Chris Blair and Las Vegas Motor Speedway enough for their generosity. The folks there understand this sport and they know how important it is to our racers and the fans. PSCA will get to be a part of a unique event and fans of the Ford Fun Weekend will get to see some of our top drivers in action. It’s a win-win.”
