The National Muscle Car Association West VP Racing Fuels Drag Racing series was recently held at the Auto Club Dragway in Fontana, CA. The three-day event brought more than 150 racers from across the West together on the legendary drag strip. Competitors in 15 classes all had hopes of taking home a coveted Wally trophy as they chased points toward a year-end prize and the title of World Champion.

The early Friday morning weather was in the mid 60s and the track was ready for action by 9:00 a.m. Starter Donie Butts kept the competition running till 6:00 p.m.  The creative class names include True Street, Mustang Madness, Open Comp, Nostalgia Street Car, Quick Street and Super Quick, Street Outlaw, True Ten 5, and Pro Mod. These racers are some of the best muscle car racers in the region. NMCA West also runs the Edelbrock Bracket Series.

The Garrett Turbo Pro Mod (1000’ race) winner Rick Snavely of L.A., CA. (near lane) ran a 5.244et. Runner-up Mark Luton.
Mickey Thompson True Ten .5 (1/8 mile) winner Johnny Coleman (near lane) of Lakewood, CA (4.692et). Runner-up Dana Cook.
Super Quick winner Ricky Deushle (near lane) from Palmdale, CA (7.919et). Runner-up Michaelyn Roelle.

If it’s road racing that floats your boat—the event has that too with a professionally set up Hotchkis Autocross course presented by Nitto Tire. Over 50 participants raced the clock for the fastest lap and a chance at some special prizes. There was also an awesome manufacturers’ midway where you could find great deals on the performance parts you need for your muscle car or hot rod.
