SCSN COMES TO RECORD-SHATTERING CONCLUSION

Written by Brandon Mudd.

 

0f446e07-0a59-4de7-b988-cb03d15987a3It wasn’t just teased; it was GUARANTEED that Street Car Super Nationals X Presented by Chris Alston’s Chassisworks would shatter records and the Pacific Street Car Association delivered. In a weekend that saw Turky al Zafari double up by winning the Outlaw Pro Mod title here after taking the Anarchy at the Arch championship in August, class records fell early and often.

The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway was prepared masterfully by the track’s staff with the starting line manned by the NHRA’s Chief Starter Mark Lyle under near-perfect weather conditions. Larry Larson took the record for fastest-ever street car Thursday night and improved on that pass repeatedly until Sunday when he hit a Mind Blowing 5.950. In ProCharger Pro Radial, Roger Holder, always fast, not only won the event but took the title of fastest/quickest ever on a Drag Radial Tire with a monster ET of 6.127 at 245.54 mph. While al Zafiri kept his title of quickest-ever door-slammer with his ET of 5.461 seconds earned in St. Louis, Paul Mouhayet took the belt of fastest-ever with a pass of 273.39 mph. In MagnaFuel Outlaw 10.5, Canadian Nick Agostino had the fans not believing their eyes and ears as he set the new Small Block Outlaw 10.5 ET record with a 6.105 and on that same pass, broke both ends of the 1/8th-mile Small Block records (4.012/194.04). New Mexico racer Mark Meiering set a new mark with a 7.42/185.79 as the world's fastest Supercharged GT500.

BROUSSARD CROWNED 2014 OUTLAW FUEL ALTERED CHAMPION

Written by Chris Graves.

66JohnBroussardIn its nineteenth consecutive season the Painless Performance Products Outlaw Fuel Altered Association crowned it's ninth different series Champion at the final event of this year's season. John Broussard of Lake Charles, Louisiana not only won his first OFAA Championship, but also became the youngest person to do so at the age of 25.  Broussard stepped into the seat of the family owned "Purple Haze" entry in 2007 after his father and crew chief Kevin passed the seat down to his son.  The car is a 1932 bantam bodied 125" altered powered by a blown 526 cubic inch Alan Johnson alcohol burning combination.  

Broussard was able to clinch the 2014 OFAA Championship despite not winning a single event in the eight race season.  Consistency was the determining factor in a points battle that came down to the first round of eliminations of the final event in San Antonio.  Broussard and three time defending Champion Jimmy Jones entered the event separated by just 1 point with Jones leading.  After two rounds of qualifying in San Antonio, Broussard sat atop the pack to claim his fourth number one qualifying effort of the season and held the points lead by a slim margin as the first round of eliminations approached.
