One of the largest Nostalgia Super Stock races in the country will once again call Beech Bend Raceway and the NMCA home in 2012. After a successful 2011 event with NMCA, Doug Duell brings the Dave Duell Classic back to Beech Bend Raceway this weekend in conjunction with the NMCA Flowmaster series. “Bowling Green has a great Super Stock tradition,” Duell said. “Keeping the race there and pairing it with the NMCA event makes the most sense for the continued success of the Classic,” he added. Duell is no stranger to NMCA racing either, having won the series’ Indy Cylinder Head Nostalgia Super Stock championship several times.
The addition of the Dave Duell Classic to the Bowling Green event the past two years is a major factor according to Marvin Benoit, co-founder of Quick Fuel Technology, the NMCA’s Bowling Green event sponsor. “I’ve always been a fan of Super Stock, specifically these 60’s era cars. Bowling Green is a perfect fit for this event and I’m happy to see Doug and the NMCA work together to bring these cars to our race,” Benoit said.
Duell and fellow racers organized the Dave Duell Classic six-years ago as a tribute to his father, Dave Duell, who was an instrumental racer and ambassador to the Nostalgia Super Stock movement across the country. The Classic is open to all brands of vehicles, and has continued to grow each year. “Last year we had 60+ entries racing for the big cash prize,” explained Duell. ProMedia president Charlie Harmon adds, “It’s our goal to help grow the Classic. We’re grateful that Doug continues to entrust our organization with its success. Nostalgia Super Stock is a big part of what we do at the NMCA Flowmaster series and we are honored to host such a prestigious race.”
The winner of the Classic will roll out of town with a stout $4,000 payday and a chance to take home big money from the NMCA contingency program. The entry fee is $150, which includes a ticket to the BBQ being held Saturday night. There will be four qualifying runs, two on Friday and one Saturday morning. The final qualifying run Saturday afternoon will also serve as the first round of class eliminations. NMCA membership is not required when competing in the Dave Duell Classic.
