NMRA Bradenton Florida 2015

Monday, March 30, 2015 - 12:00am

5 DeatschWerks Drivers, 4 WINNERS!

March 5th-8th we traveled out to Bradenton, Florida for the 1st NMRA race of the season. With the forecast in the mid 70s and sunny, it was perfect weather for a great race weekend.

Friday the track was open for practice and test-n-tune. Lines of trailers were waiting at the gates prepared to get set up and get unloaded. Walking up and down the isles of trailers we came upon our Title Sponsored 2006 Saleen Mustang, driven by Dyno Joe Cram, runner up in the 2014 Coyote Modified Class and Jim Swarr Award Winner. Once again Joe is competting in the Coyote Modified with his DeatschWerks Powered 5.0 Mustang. Joe's motor gets boost from a very large ProCharger and fueled by eight DeatschWerks 1200cc Dv2 Injectors. After unloading his car Joe got tech'd in for competition. Joe made multiple passes that day getting his new engine from Holbrook Racing Engine fine tuned.

Friday was also a great day to meet all the drivers in the series that run DeatschWerks products. We       ventured up and down trailers looking for DW Contingency Decals. Evenually we reached the trailer of 2014 Winner of the Factory Stock Class, Matt Amrine. He was making final preperations of his vehicle in the pits. Matt runs 35lb DW injectors. After speaking with Matt we also found Gary "Hollywood" Parker with his beautiful Cobra Mustang, with a coyote motor, competeting in the Factory Stock Class. 

Saturday started early with a small session of final test-n-tune then qualifing started. Qualifing passes started at noon and ran to around 5. The highlight of all the DeatschWerks drivers was John Mummary's .01 RT, securing his 1st place quailifier spot in the Super Stang class. John runs DeatschWerks 78 lb injectors.

Saturday was filled with great qualifing runs. Johny Lightning made some great passing qualifing high up in the Coyote Modified class and in Truck/Lighting. Johnny runs DeatschWerks 2200cc injectors in both cars.

Sunday's races started early to give everyone a few more hours to fine tune their engines for the eliminations rounds. Around noon all the drivers started lining up in the lanes to start racing. Eliminations went on for hours til all the classes were down to the final pairings. All the final racers were close, making it hard to take the win. Only the racers with the best reaction and best car were going to win. Below Lists all the classes with winners running DeatschWerks Injectors or pumps.
