Street Car Super Nationals VIII Shaping up to be Best Ever
by Brandon W. Mudd
LAS VEGAS -- After some of the top racers in the Pacific Street Car Association invaded the Shakedown in E-Town in Englishtown, N.J., recently, drivers from the East Coast are returning the favor Nov. 14-18 making the Street Car Super Nationals VIII the place to be for drag racers and drag racing fans.
In addition, NHRA Pro Mod stars such as Troy Coughlin, Jay Payne, and Steve Matasek have also confirmed they will participate in the eighth-annual drag racing extravaganza at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
“This is going to be huge!” said PSCA President Mel Roth at the sanction’s official booth at this weekend’s NHRA Full Throttle Series event at The Strip. “I can’t remember when we’ve seen so much hype around this event. Having our guys go to E-Town and represent the West Coast was a blast and now, having so many East Coast drivers tell us they’re coming to Vegas tells me they know where to find great racing and that’s with the Pacific Street Car Association.”
Street Car Super Nationals is a one-of-a-kind event bringing racers from all across the US and Canada to race for some of the largest cash purses in the sport. Add in another $250,000 in posted contingency and bonus awards and it's a who's who in the staging lanes. Past and current champions from the ADRL, IHRA, NSCA, NHRA Pro Mod, PSCA, Orlando, Shakedown at E-town and many others will be in attendance for this can’t-miss event.
Purses include $20,000 to the winner in Pro Street, $10,000 to the winner in Outlaw 10.5, and $5,000.00 to the winner in XDR/TT-5. All told, the event will see more than 40 Pro Street/Pro Mods, 32 Outlaw 10.5's, and another 250+ of the baddest hot rods on the planet in addition to the Lucas Oil Car Show Series.
