Gustafson, Goss, Skillman Win NMRA/NMCA All-American Nationals
The Arrington Performance NMRA/NMCA All-American Nationals presented by Force Engineering rocked the U.S. 131 Motorsports Park in Martin, Michigan over the weekend, hosting more than 650 racers from the NMRA, NMCA and Chevrolet Performance Challenge Series and a host of speciality categories.
It’s a record-setting and remarkable number that included a perfect mix of series regulars and series rookies ready to put it all on the line at the facility whose slogan is “The Fastest Track in Michigan.” They prevailed over heat, humidity, rain and raucous thunder early in the weekend to heap on the horsepower when cool and crisp air came later in the weekend.
While there were fewer fans in attendance in accordance with current state guidelines, they were engaged and eager to see which racers would go all the way to the Aerospace Components Winner’s Circle after several rounds of close competition.
VP Racing Lubricants Xtreme Pro Mod racers were in rocket-mode, with seven of eighteen of them running 3.70s in qualifying, and others right there with 3.80s and 3.90s. Jim Widener set the pace for the second race in a row with a 3.70, but it was Eric Gustafson and Adam Flamholc who were pulling into the waterbox for the highly anticipated final round of eliminations. They leaped off the line with nearly identical reaction times, and it was anybody’s race until Flamholc was forced to pedal it and Gustafson went on to a 3.70 to win.Read more >
