Continuing on our with our busy weekend, we returned to Atco Raceway on Sunday for the first Quick 8 (Outlaw 10.5) race of the season, as well as a new class for Atco, the Extreme 275 Radial class, brought to us by the Small Block Posse and Mouth Racing.
The Quick 8 class brought some heavy hitters to the track, but after qualifying was finished, it was anyone's race as they all scrambled to get tunes in the car that didn't overpower the track. Kasper & Christy Racing were laying down the best numbers in their new Mustang during eliminations, but the champ Joe Newsham wasn't too far behind them. Both South Jersey teams made it to the finals, Kasper had some technical problems on the line and the car cut off as soon as it was staged. The tree was already activated and Newsham took off, going A to B for the win.
The Small Block Posse</a> and Mouth Racing's Extreme 275 Class brought a small but determined crew of racers to the track. A bunch of the guys are still getting their setups together, so expect this class to grow as the season goes on. The hot weather and small tires these guys run on did not help their already difficult job! Team Mar-Schan was running the class today, trying to figure out the bugs in the Deuce and be dangerous in the 275 class. Don Barnett was also back in his Firebird, making some smoking passes, but hurt something and he did not make it to the finals. Taking home the win for the day was Walt Pfister in his 87 Mustang, congratulations!
