Quote from:  Chad Dailey ("cadprovw")
Well, the 1st Annual Unlimited Street South race is officially in the books!  Although the car count was a little down, everyone had positive things to say about the event, and there is already excitement about next year's event(s)!

Here's the run down on the event:

The Cruise: 5 participants entered the 23 mile cruise, with only 4 surviving and returning to the track.  Shane Smith in his beautiful orange '67 had the misfortune of his fuel pump failing!  Fortunately it was just after leaving the track, so he was able to limp it back.  Carl Nolen tells me that he too barely made it as his fuel tank was completely DRY when he got back to the pits!

Qualifying: Carl Nolen led qualifying with a stellar 10.48 @ 127 in his nitrous-assisted ride.  Tom Funnel was #2 in his normally aspirated ride, Emmanuel Sarger was #3 in his normally aspirated ride, and Mike Cummings rounded out qualifying with his turbo split.

Eliminations: Round 1: Tom's 12.72 beats Emmanuell's 14.50, while Carl beats Mike with a MASSIVE holeshot, 12.13 to Mike's quicker, but later 11.71.

In the finals, Carl's car slows to a 12.57, but it was enough to hold off Tom's 12.64!

BTW, Tom's car ran between a 12.58 and a 12.74 all day long, so, congrats Tom on having the most consistent car there!

Now for the Good Stuff:

Carl Nolen: Winner
□   $350 CASH
□   $100 Gift Certificate to JayCee Enterprises
□   5 Gallons VP C-16 provided by The Bug Stop
□   Gift Certificate for a case of LAT Oil

□   $100 CASH for having the quickest AND fastest nitrous car, provided by The Nitrous Outlet
□   $50 CASH for The Bounty Hunter Award, provided by Vintage V-Dub Works
□   $50 CASH for the Best Reaction Time, provided by Vintage V-Dub Works
Tom Funnell: Runner Up
□   $200 CASH
□   $50 Gift Certificate to JayCee Enterprises
□   $100 CASH for having the quickest AND fastest normally aspirated car, provide by GEERS Engineering
□   $50 CASH for the People’s Choice award, provided by The Bug Stop
Mike Cummings: Semi Finalist

□   $150 CASH for the quickest AND fastest turbo car, provided by TurbosDirect

Please visit these sponsors and THANK THEM for helping to make Unlimited Street South 2009 a success!

On a personal note, I’d like to give Carl Nolen a big THANK YOU for taking care of things on race day in my absence.  Your dedication to the VW drag racing scene is inspiring.  Also, to my bud David Peppin, who volunteered to help out any way he could.  I think we may have even been able to convert a die-hard V8 guy into a VW fan  Wink

Lets do it again next year!

If you guys haven't seen them already, I posted some pics from USS 2009 in the "Two Lounge Members Square off in the Finals at the Texas Big Bug Shootout" thread.

More to come. Stay tuned... Cool

It was a great day, and very cool to see something a bit different going on. It's raining here now (with up to 2-3 inches expected later today!), but the forecast for this weekend's big money VW race at Little River Dragway looks awesome.

Hopefully the VW turnout will match the weather - some people will be running their 3rd VW race in a week! Shocked
