    For the second time this season, the competitors of the NMCA and NMRA converge on the same property for the annual Super Bowl of Street Legal Drag Racing here at Route 66 Raceway in Joliet just outside Chicago. Racers have been met with unseasonably cool temperatures that feels more like October than June, meaning we could see some record performances this weekend. Stay tuned throughout the weekend as we bring you all of the NMRA action along with Sunday’s Super Bowl Shootout against the NMCA contingent.

    Special thanks to our event sponsor SCT Performance. Check out their great line of tuning products at www.sctflash.com.



    We're underway this morning under suprisingly cool mid-60 degree temperatures with test and tune action, and while that's underway, we've been browsing the pits to see who's here to do battle this weekend.

    Longtime NMCA racer Randy Adler awoke the troops last night in Pro Street when he JUST missed the fives by uncorking a 6.001 at 237.00 mph. Dan Stevenson was on track to turn the feat on his attempt but stepped off the loud pedal before the stripe, posting a 6.08 at just 209 mph. Pro Street boasts a stout field of 15 cars here this weekend.



    Bob Kurgan recorded the quickest pass in Xtreme Street history last night when he put a 7.81 on the scoreboards to lead the field into today's final round of qualifying.

    Don Bowles' Maverick broke on the burnout, although rather unconspicuously, but a redlight by Ben Mens handed the wounded "Coal Digger" the win. Robbie Blankenship advanced and will receive the bye in round two, while Keith Courtney will face Mike Curcio and Charlie Booze Jr. will meet Bowles, if indeed he can return.



    Jeff Colletta made the quickest run of the opening round in Nostalgia Pro Street with a 7.31 defeat of Shawn Baker. Jim Jarrett advanced and will face Andy Vogt, Joe Bucaro, who went 7.32, will meet Skip Baskin's gorgeous new Camaro, and Chuck DeMory Jr. will have lane choice over Pete Ricart.



    This photo pretty well tells the story of the evening. After persistent sprinkles that weren't quite enough to halt the racing, the skies opened up just as Super Street Outlaw was rolling out from under the tower and after an hour delay, the call was made to pull the plug. We'll start tomorrow with the first round of Pro Street and continue through the order from there.

    Another local doorslammer lagend, Nick Scavo, joined Adler in victory lane as he captured the Super Street/Pto Outlaw crown with an easy 10.20 idle down the quarter mile after Brian Hicks' impressive run to the final ended with a dead race car when the tree dropped.



    In a matchup of a couple orange '69 Camaro's, #1 qualifier jim Jarrett went wire-to-wire in Nostalgia Pro Street. Jeff Colletta sawed the tree down with a near perfect .002 reaction time, but encountered trouble downtrack and slowed to an 8.63 as Jarrett cruised to a 7.35 at 187.52 lap.



    Alan Von Ahnen drove his '79 Mustang to the Mean Street crown over Gary Duncan after grabbing the advantage at both ends of the racetrack, .061 to .070 at the tree and quicker 10.46 at 131.86 to 10.67 at 127.44.
