For the first time ever the West Coast Outlaw Pro Mod Association will travel across the border to compete internationally this weekend (July 6-8) in Canada at Mission Raceway Park, located in Mission, British Columbia.
Many racers are anticipating the event as great weather is projected throughout the weekend in the low 70’s with very little chance of rain, combine that with an actual track elevation of only 25 feet above sea level as well as a killer racing surface and record times are expected.
Mike Maggio is making the long haul from Southern California with his 1970 Camaro which ran in the mid 5.70’s last November at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. That team is going up with a big goal, to reset the world record for a doorslammer in the quarter-mile.
Also making the trip from So. Cal will be Dan Nickelson who is gunning for a 2012 WCOPMA championship as well as three time WCOPMA champion Rod Burabge from Northern California. There is a strong support of Canadian racers coming to play as current track record holder Joe Delehay will be in attendance as well as many other big names including Trevor Lowe, Glen May, Jay Syverston, Wade Sjostrom, Duane Grosart and Dave Warren.
Friday July 6th will be an open test session for all racers. Saturday the 7th will host three qualifying runs for the 8-car qualified field scheduled for 3pm, 6pm and 9pm. Sunday is race day with eliminations beginning at 12 noon. All times local and are subject to change.
