16th Annual SDPC Raceshop NMCA World Street Finals Featuring the 11th Annual Chevrolet Performance LSX Shootout
World’s Fastest Street Cars Invade Indianapolis!
In years past, by the time the final race of the season begins, many championship battles have already been decided – especially in the heads-up classes. That is not the case this year as several of the most exciting classes are going down to the wire including VP Racing Fuels Xtreme Pro Mod where the points battle was tossed on its head recently after points leader, Adam Flamholc, announced that due to health reasons, he would not be attending the 2017 season finale. That essentially puts Jason Hamstra and Steve Summers in a two-way battle for the title, with Billy Banaka having an outside shot.
Santa Ana CA – Sensational racing took center stage at the 16th Annual Honeywell Garrett NMCA All-American Nationals, Aug. 24-27, at Summit Motorsports Park in Norwalk, Ohio. There were wheelies, wild rides, and wondrous elapsed-times, and when it was all said and done, the Aerospace Components Winner’s Circle welcomed winners.
In VP Racing Fuels Xtreme Pro Mod qualifying, 13 out of 24 drivers delivered 3-second passes, and Billy Banaka led the field with a 3.78 in his Camaro. He took it all the way to the final to rumble with Jason Hamstra and his Camaro, and Hamstra hauled to a 3.86 to win over Banaka’s 4.05.

12th Annual Nitto Tire NMRA/NMCA Super Bowl of Street-Legal Drag Racing Presented by Precision Turbo July 27-30
Who Will Win the Nitto Tire Diamond Tree Rings?
The 12th Annual Nitto Tire NMRA/NMCA Super Bowl of Street-Legal Drag Racing Presented by Precision Turbo has arrived. The largest race of its kind in the country showcases the world’s fastest street cars and the world’s fastest Fords racing together at Route 66 Raceway in Joliet, Ill., July 27-30.
Twenty two championship classes from both the NMRA and NMCA will be featured during the event which begins with a test session on Thursday July 27th and concludes with the legendary “Super Bowl” portion of the event on Sunday afternoon when class winners from both organizations race against each other in hopes of being awarded a Nitto Tire Diamond Tree Ring© in the Aerospace Components Winners’ Circle.
In the Super Bowl runoffs last year, it was a back and forth battle with the NMCA taking an early two-point lead, followed by the NMRA rallying back to a two-point lead as well. The NMCA needed to sweep the final three pairings, and Kevin Fiscus led the charge, followed by Louie Filippides and DeWayne Mills to secure the team win – complete with Nitto Tire Diamond Tree rings and bonus money – A much needed win for team NMCA which still trails the NMRA team by a seven to four margin.
Santa Ana CA – Mother Nature tried her best to disrupt the race with several rain delays, but the NMCA staff was patient and eventually the storms passed and cars were able to get down the track at the 16th Annual Quick Fuel Technology NMCA Bluegrass Nationals Presented by Scoggin-Dickey Parts Center Featuring the Chevrolet Performance Challenge Series at Beech Bend Raceway Park in Bowling Green, Kentucky. A monumental effort was made by all to get the race in before the weather turned once again, and, incredibly, all was said and done just before 4:00pm on Sunday as winners headed to the Aerospace Components Winners’ Circle.
The three power adders of the VP Racing Fuels Xtreme Pro Mod category were all well represented, but it was Steve Summers whose twin-turbocharged ’16 Camaro took top honors after qualifying on a 3.810 at 214.45 mph hit. Daniel Pharris of Sikeston, Missouri, had a few minor issues with his gorgeous new Mustang during the weekend, but it wasn’t enough to keep him from squaring off against Billy Harper in the finals. There, Harper fouled at the start and opened the door for Pharris to take the win; Pharris had problems getting down the track, but got it done and made the victory official.
