Pro Street qualifying
53 cars made laps on Friday for the 32 car field in Pro Street.
The usual suspects are out front, With Pat Musi leading with a 6.066/235.
California Hitter Mike Maggio is #2 with a 6.085 and turbo king Brad
Personett is #2 running 10.5's to get a wieght break. He ripped off
a record 6.088 at and amazing 250mph. That shatters the old 10.5 record.
(but Personett is 250 lbs lighter that Tim Lynch's laps in a 3000lb
car. Canadian drivers in the field include Jay Syvertsen running his
second quickest lap ever, a solid 6.42/216, Dan Vogt, the 2009 winner
is #19 with a 6.46/217. Wayne Hofer, Craig Cawte, Roy Moznik and Dale
Pederson are all in the field after two rounds. Washington State drivers
in the field include Mark Wolfe running a career best 6.426/225, Yvonne
Lucas also a carreer best 6.46/215. Garrett Richards is #28 with a
6.77. BC Driver Trevor Lowe is struggling and is outside the field
right now after running a 6.92 best. Frank Tamez is also outside the
field turning in a mid seven et in his new Bickle built 69 Yenko Camaro.
a NUMBER OF OTHER CANUCKS ARE ALSO OUTSIDE THE FIELD AND THEY INCLUDE
Ross Hogenson, Don Wilk, Brett Williamson, Dal Sangha (out for the
first itme in his rebuilt Mustang), Scott Blake, Toni Moretto and
Steve Horne are also outside the field.
Saturday's weather does not look too promising, but hopefully they
get in at least one more lap.
10.5 looks to be tough
as well and Kurtos Tamez leads after two rounds with a 6.63/211. Rick
Snavley is #2 with a 6.64. ADRL star Billy Glidden is # 5 with a 6.76.
Two time champ Dale Moznik is #10 with a 6.89 best. It is his first

LHP to tune three
Pro Street cars at the Street Car Super Nationals event
Buzzards Bay, Ma - Lonnie Houde of LHP Racing will be at the biggest
door car event on the West Coast next weekend tuning for three West
Coast heavy hitters in the Pro Street class at the 6th annual Street
Car Super Nationals event.
Houde will be calling the shots for Rod Burbage who finished 2nd in
the 2010 West Coast Outlaw Pro Mod Association point's standings and
was the 2008 and 2009 WCOPMA champion. Burbage has not made the trip
to the Street Car Super Nationals since 2007 and since then has made
some major changes to his Bunker Race Cars-built 1958 Corvette. Together
Houde and Burbage plan for success this year in Vegas after posting
some career best numbers earlier this season with a 6.03/243.
Jay Diedrich will also be making the trip with his blacked out 1957
Chevy. Houde began helping Diedrich at the beginning of this season
and the results have been positive for both. Diedrich switched his
engine combo over last winter and has been posting career best numbers
while setting 5 different MPH track records during this 2010 season,
the fastest being 249.47. The Firebaugh Express Racing team hopes
to lower their 6.11 career best ET and wants to break the 250 MPH
mark next weekend.
Lastly Lonnie Houde will be tuning for Dan Myers and his unique 1957
Chevy Cameo Pickup Truck. Myers has struggled this 2010 season with
consistency but looks to Vegas to turn his luck around. Dan finished
4th in the 2010 WCOPMA points standings and ran some good numbers
qualifying for every event and winning one event. Both Lonnie and
Dan look to Vegas to improve the teams' career best numbers as this
is the event where Dan has ran the best in the past.

Firebaugh, Ca - Jay Diedrich and his Firebaugh Express Racing 1957
Chevy will head to Las Vegas for the Street Car Super Nationals VI
event to compete in the toughest Pro Street field in the world this
Diedrich, who missed the event last year and only had 1 shot to qualify
the year before, will be locked and ready as soon as the lanes open
for testing on Thursday to acquire data and make some laps in preparation
for the Thursday night "Pro Street Showdown" where $500
will be given to the quickest AND the fastest Pro Street passes.
Diedrich has had a stellar 2010 season so far placing 3rd with the
West Coast Outlaw Pro Mod Association in points and 2nd with the West
Coast Hot Rod Association's Pro Street class. At each racetrack attended
in 2010, Diedrich has reset the track MPH record at every one (5 total)
with a best being 249.47 and has ran career best ET's, the best being
6.11. In Vegas he plans to better on both personal best numbers.

prepares for Pro Street racing at the Street Car Super Nationals VI
San Diego, Ca - Dan Myers Racing will be making the trek to Las Vegas
Motor Speedway to compete in the toughest Pro Street class at the
6th annual Street Car Super Nationals. Myers' and his team have competed
at the SCSN event the last 2 years. In 2008 Dan made it to the 3rd
round of eliminations in the 32-car field and in 2009 he narrowly
missed the 6.53 bump spot with a 6.58 best pass.
This year Dan is looking to be running in the 6.25-6.35 range and
with engine tuning help from Lonnie Houde and chassis assistance from
Bob Bunker Jr. he believes that it is possible. On Thursday Dan will
be letting his son, Brandon Myers, make some license passes in the
blown alcohol 1957 Chevy Cameo Truck. Then for the rest of the event
(Friday-Sunday) Dan says "Dad will show him how it's done!"
On Wednesday before the NHRA World Finals event in Pomona, Dan took
his truck to make a couple exhibition passes along with some other
local west-coast racers for the NHRA Career Opportunities program.
In the stands were close to 1,000 kids and Dan laid down a half track
burnout under power finally coming to a stop at the 1000' mark. He
backed up and then made an easy pass down the track. Helping Dan that
day was his younger son's karate instructor and new sponsor for the
2011 racing season, Hans Hemkes with Ramona Martial Arts.
Dan is excited and looking forward to finishing off the 2010 season
with a good performance at the Street Car Super Nationals this upcoming
weekend. The 2011 season for Dan Myers Racing is already shaping up
to be a good one with the new sponsor from Ramona Martial Arts and
continued support from Pacific Repair Services, Red Line Oil, Tom's
Differentials and Carolyn's Miniatures.
