Rainbow City, AL – On top of all they are already doing for the race at SGMP, today, Marty Witt and the team at Patriot Performance announced they will step up to bring you all of the racing action “Live” form South Georgia Motorsports Park Feb 24-26. Starting with the pre-race show Thursday evening and continuing through all the qualifying and final eliminations on Sunday, you can watch all of the racing action along with Live Timing on MotormaniaTV.com.
“We love this sport. It’s been so good to us and the rest of the folks at Patriot Performance.” stated Witt, “We used to do a lot of advertising in various publications and other racing groups, but found we did not get a great return on money spent. So last year I decided we would start helping with the outlaw races in the southeast along with holding a couple of races ourselves. We’re doing this all to say ‘Thank you’ to the folks who have made us who we are and give back to the racers!”

During an exciting night of reflection on the 2011 NEOPMA (Northeast Outlaw Pro Mod Association) season, RPM Magazine and www.goDragRacing.org took time to recognize four exceptional series competitors with their Editor’s Choice Award.
RPM Editor In Chief, Chris Biro along with RPM V.P. Of Marketing & Customer Relations, Trish Biro personally attended this years banquet to present the goods. “The Editor?s Choice Award is generally presented to one, maybe two racers in a given season. We worked closely with NEOPMA this past season and when faced with the decision of choosing recipients for 2011, we quickly realized the difficulty of the task and called in re-enforcements,” explained Chris.
“So, with the help of our good friend Mark from goDragRacing.org and series frontman, John Mazzorana, we decided there would be 4 Editor’s Choice Awards for 2011, and that ALL 4 would go to racers of the Northeast Outlaw Pro Modified Association!”

LAS VEGAS, NV – It’s hard for a race team to have higher expectations for the 2012 Pacific Street Car Association series when the ’11 season ended with them hoisting the PSCA Pro Street championship, but that’s exactly what Maggio Motorsports is planning.
A year that saw the San Dimas, Calif.-based team earn a Wally by winning the WCOPMA/NHRA Division 7 drags at Infineon Speedway in Somona, Calif. by setting a new ET record (5.849 seconds) as well as the speed record record (251.91 mph), set PSCA records for ET and speed twice (currently 5.973 seconds and 245.54 mph, respectively), earn the 2011 Super Chevy championship at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, and be featured on the cover of Drag Illustrated in July is a season to remember.
“Looking back on the Maggio Motorsports 2011 season is a true pleasure,” Maggio Motorsports Owner Mike Maggio said. “We have so much to be thankful for and proud of.”
