2016 Year in Review

2016 was a great year. We had a lot of fun traveling to the events and racing with these great racers and meeting all the fans and Companies involved in the racing scene.

We ended the season qualifying #1 at every event and was able to go all season without losing a round until the final race of the year in the finals at Fontana when we broke an axle! We tried to replace it with the help of our fellow racers but the axle end was stuck to the differential and we had to pull out.

Special thanks to Jerry who actually pulled his own axle off to let us borrow it if we could have got the old one out. That is how close the racing community is and we love being part of this brotherhood.

Can’t wait to get back out there next season!

092516 – Import Faceoff Bakersfield Recap

We recently returned to the venue of our first win of the season. Woke up extra early in the morning to make the journey out to Auto Club Famoso in Bakersfield.

Once again we had a full field of 16 cars racing in the class. We knew it would be a hot day but came prepared with the tents and some cold drinks. With the higher track temps we ended up being the only car in the field to run a 9 second pass. Qualified #1 with a 9.85@138.37.

080616 – Raceworz 3

The week before the event was one filled with long nights and parts runs. In the end it was all worth it. We brought out two cars for the Pro All Motor call and finished 1-2 in the class.

The first place win also came with a Whitefield Fab 10-point cage!

Next up is IFO Bakersfield where we get to run with all of our southern California racers!

 

041016 – Import Drag Racing Circuit Recap

With rain looming for both the CMI Racing at Sacramento Raceway Park and the IDRC’s West Coast Nationals & InstaFame Car Show event at Auto Club Dragway it was a game time decision to make the trip down south once the event up north was canceled!

Going down south was preferred and mother nature made it so. Racing up north means running against the SFWD since the All Motor class was eliminated! There is always the chance of a full class down south too! Last time at IFO Bakersfield the AMP class was packed with a 16-car field!

Managed to qualify with the #1 spot but then then the rain prevented the finals for the class to be run.

Volk TE37s

We are a huge fan of the TE37 wheel. With its low spoke count and beefy construction they are both lightweight and easy to clean. They are a forged wheel providing a good balance of performance and looks.

We run the TE37 on the drag car, track car, daily driven car. It works so well for all the cars in terms of looks and performance.

Can’t wait to see what they come up with next!

022816 – Import Face-Off Bakersfield Recap

The first event of the year was a good one. After a long drive down south the team was able to bring home the win.

The 16-car field marks the greatest turnout for the class in many years. Cannot wait to see the great competition in the class this year. With 4 cars capable of running 9 second passes and 4 other cars on the cusp of breaking the 9 second barrier this season is bound to be full of tight competition!

Looking forward to the next event in Sacramento at CMI!

Quick weekend Recap Video.
