because you want to SEE it


MADISON, IL — The Premier Street Car Association comes to the St. Louis area this weekend for Heads-Up Hootenanny, an event featuring some of the best straight-up drag racing in the country. It’s the fourth running of the event at World Wide Technology Raceway Park at Gateway as the PSCA continues its relationship with the NHRA-sanctioned drag strip. Also in attendance for the second-straight year is the Mid-West Pro Mod Series.

Kicking off Friday when the gates open at 8 a.m., this year’s Heads-Up Hootenanny is paired up with Gateway’s Super Chevy Show, setting up a drag racing enthusiast’s dream weekend with near-perfect weather conditions. Headlining the race for PSCA is Vortech Superchargers Outlaw 8.5, an eighth-mile class that brings the excitement every time they stage.

Heads-Up Hootenanny isn’t the only PSCA race on the schedule this weekend. Two time zones away at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, MuscleCars at the Strip at Las Vegas is also providing race fans with a slice of Americana and a viewing of PSCA’s small-tire, no-time class.

“It’s going to be an incredible weekend,” said PSCA President Mel Roth. “The weather is going to be perfect, which means our 8.5 Outlaws and the Mid-West Pro Mods are going to be quick. We’ve set a lot of records here at Gateway and this weekend should see more records fall.

“Curtis Francois and Chris Blair have one of the best track crews in the country and that’s not just lip service. We’ve run this track in all conditions and our racers keep breaking records. When you combine fast race cars with a great race surface, you’ve got a race you do not want to miss!”

This is the first of two dates in which the PSCA will race at the newly-renamed Worldwide Technology Raceway Park at Gateway, with Street Car Super Nationals VI: Anarchy at the Arch scheduled for August 1-3. The PSCA’s signature event, the original Street Car Super Nationals now in its 15th year, returns to The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway Nov. 21-24.
