Buzzards Bay, Ma – Lonnie Houde of LHP Racing will be at the biggest door car event on the West Coast next weekend tuning for three West Coast heavy hitters in the Pro Street class at the 6th annual Street Car Super Nationals event.
Houde will be calling the shots for Rod Burbage who finished 2nd in the 2010 West Coast Outlaw Pro Mod Association point’s standings and was the 2008 and 2009 WCOPMA champion. Burbage has not made the trip to the Street Car Super Nationals since 2007 and since then has made some major changes to his Bunker Race Cars-built 1958 Corvette. Together Houde and Burbage plan for success this year in Vegas after posting some career best numbers earlier this season with a 6.03/243.
Hawk Point, MO – If this trailer is an indication of what’s to come on Tim McAmis Race Cars TV, we can’t wait to watch the first espisode. Noted for some of the fastest cars and top grade products in the world of fast door car racing, I suspect this TV show will be no different.

Los Vegas, NV – Bluebaugh Racing’s Team Magna Fuel is busy preparing for another fantastic year at the Street Car Super National’s in Las Vegas, November 18-21, 2010. Bluebaugh said “We look forward to this race every year and the opportunity to run with the nation’s very best cars in our class. As a West Coast team, this is a big deal for us practically right in our back yard. While we are far from the fastest team expected to show up, it’s an exciting accomplishment to simply make the field and go a round or two.”
Team Magna Fuel is striving again for a mid-pack position as a strategy to go as many rounds as possible. Bluebaugh and team have often found the finals from the mid-pack point as faster cars seem to fall out early. This race will be no exception with a plentiful history of upsets and surprises in the competition. Anything can certainly happen in Vegas.

MEDINA, NEW YORK – After supporting the PMRA Series for its entirety of six seasons, Mike Stawicki returned to racing in the Pro Modified Racing Association for the 2010 season, and captured his first PMRA Championship in the Point Award Series presented by Magnum Auto Parts and Patio Passport.
“Our year went excellent,” said Stawicki, who set several Pro Modified benchmarks during the season, including a Canadian record of 5.739 seconds for a quarter-mile pass, just one one-thousandth of a second behind the world Pro Modified elapsed time record. “Our year was one of the best.”
Stawicki qualified for all PMRA events, and took the number one Marydel Homes qualifying spot in four of five events, qualifying second in the remaining race. His 2010 PMRA record included one victory, a co-victory, two runner-up placings, and a quarter-final round.
