» Fiscus/Klugger Racing Update
Big Tire "Big Deal" for Fiscus, Klugger goes rounds at NMCA Indy

(6-29-2016) JACKSONVILLE, FL – Fiscus/Klugger Racing (FKR) has been making big moves in both the radial tire world and the big tire scene lately. From Kevin “Flash” Fiscus being tapped to drive the “Big Deal” Pro Mod to Josh Klugger going rounds in NMCA Radial Wars, the future is brighter than ever for this talented team.

Earlier this season, Fiscus was hired on by Nelson Morales’ Puerto Rico-based “Big Deal” racing team to drive their “Big Deal” Pro Mod Mustang.

You can’t keep a good man down

(6-28-2016) PITTSBORO, NC – In March of this year PDRA Pro Extreme pilot, Terry Leggett, went in for a regular eye checkup. He walked away with a long list of upcoming appointments and treatment options. Leggett had melanoma eye cancer.

“Back in March I went for just a regular eye checkup and found out I had a melanoma tumor in my eye. The week during Rockingham I had a radioactive plaque put in my eye. It stayed in for five days and then they removed it. I really won’t know anything about the tumor for another five or six weeks. That’s when they’ll do all the resizing of the tumor to see if the radiation killed it or not. I’ll wind up having to have my thyroid removed, too. Probably sometime in July. There’s a strong enough possibility of cancer there that they want to remove it.”

In conversation with Leggett, none would be the wiser about his current... [Read More]

Third time’s the charm for Team Aruba

(6-28-2016) GRAND BEND, ON – The last three events have equated to three final rounds for Team Aruba. While the team came heartwrenchingly close to its first ever IHRA Pro Stock win in its last two outings, it was the IHRA Canadian Nationals and Team Aruba’s third trip to the final round that would give the team, led by team owner, Ven Eman, and Aruba.com Mustang pilot, Trevor Eman, their first victory. An elated Eman was thrilled to get the win for his hard working team and the country he represents:

“It's very relieving to win an IHRA race finally. We've been after a win for a long time, and we have gotten close several times, but when the win doesn't come, you feel as if your determination and patience is being tested. All the time traveling away from home and on the road to make it to a final round and not win, blow up engines, tear up a race car only makes... [Read More]

Farber rallies and qualifies well at Norwalk

(6-27-2016) NORWALK, OH – Pete Farber overcame transmission troubles from the previous week, qualified eleventh, and made it through to eliminations at the 10th annual Summit Racing Equipment NHRA Nationals event in Norwalk, Ohio on June 23-26 at Summit Motorsports Park.

A faulty sprag caused problems for Pete Farber while racing at the 16th annual NHRA Thunder Valley Nationals event in Bristol, Tennessee, the weekend before, but the issues had been resolved and his supercharged CRC Automotive Brākleen ’69 Dodge Daytona was running better than ever for the Norwalk race.

In the first round of eliminations on Friday, Farber started out great with a strong 5.994 at 228.73 mph hit with a 0.987-second sixty-foot which ranked him tenth, but as he crossed the finish into the shut down area, his Daytona’s engine let go. Farber hustled... [Read More]

(6-27-2016) NORWALK, OH – In a battle of Pro Mod superstars, Troy Coughlin Sr. came out on the losing end -- this time -- against Rickie Smith in the second round of the Real Pro Mod Association NHRA J&A Service Pro Mod Series race on Sunday in Norwalk.

Coughlin and Smith have won the last four NHRA Pro Mod championships, with the JEGS.com driver winning in 2012 and 2015 and Smith in 2013-14. Sunday in Norwalk, the race was over early as Coughlin red-lit for what he believed was the first time in his Pro Mod career.

"It's definitely more fun to beat him," Coughlin said. "We're good rivals, and we're always picking on him and he's picking on me. We're going to get him next time; it's our turn."

Coughlin has been solid on the Christmas Tree this season, but he left .001-second too soon. Another hundredth of a... [Read More]

Banaka, Mills, Bucaro and McCarty big winners at NMCA All-American Nationals

(6-27-2016) INDIANAPOLIS, IN – After a long weekend chock full of some epic racing, the 2016 NMCA All-American Nationals featuring the 10th Annual Chevrolet Performance LSX Shootout has come to a close. Held at Lucas Oil Raceway in Indianapolis, Indiana, nearly twenty classes were hotly contested and racers were all looking to get to the Aerospace Components Winner’s Circle.

VP Racing Fuels Xtreme Pro Mod’s class was full of turbocharged, supercharged, and nitrous cars all vying for the right to take a trip to the Aerospace Components Winner’s Circle, but four rounds of eliminations whittled them down to just one. It was a battle of the Camaros in the finals but ultimately it was Billy Banaka of Brandon, Missouri, who reached the big end with his car in front. Banaka, the number four qualifier, ran the eighth mile in 3.914... [Read More]
