A lot of things took place at the AC Delco Nationals in Las Vegas this past weekend, some of which has already been reported here on Torco’s Competitionplus.com already, while other items will be brand new.
Friday’s PRO Board of Directors meeting was highlighted by the first appearance of new Board member Bill Miller, he of connecting rod and Top Fuel fame. A thoughtful, extremely intelligent man, Miller’s voice was a breath of fresh air for the Board, as we’re hearing he spoke out on the issues while at the same time offering the organization a fresh perspective on drag racing’s problems. Miller replaced John Force, who resigned before his term had expired.
We’ve also heard that Kenny Bernstein will serve a third two-year term as the organization’s president at the specific request of the Board. Pro Stock driver Vieri Gaines will reportedly join the Board, which already includes Pro Stock racers Warren Johnson and Mark Pawuk who, while not competing in Las Vegas (or at the Finals in two weeks), flew in specifically for the meeting.
