The Inaugural JE Pistons NMRA/NMCA West Coast Shootout, presented by Lucas Oil, is all set to go at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, CA, the weekend of July 8-10, 2011. Because of recent noise restrictions imposed upon the track, NMRA/NMCA will not be able to run Pro Street and Outlaw 10.5, classes previously planned, however the rest of the classes can all run as long as all competitors have mufflers on their vehicles for the entirety of the event. NMRA & NMCA will showcase Hot Street, Xtreme Drag Radial, Wild Street, Open Comp, Mustang Madness, RASR True Street Challenge, West Coast Shootout, Sportsman Brackets, and Street Brackets...all racing for glory down the 1/4 mile!
Don't forget that there will be a special Racers Against Street Racing (RASR) True Street Challenge class that will run on Saturday, July 9th. This class will feature street-type racers taking on members of the media and manufacturers to win cash and over $10,000 in prizes. TREMEC True Street is a class where all street cars (licensed, insured and able to make a 30-mile cruise) make 3 back-to-back passes and the closest 3-pass averages to 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, and 15-seconds each win $100 and a bonus prize. The King of True Street, the overall fastest average, will win $250 and the runner-up $100 in addition to cool prizes from NMRA & NMCA sponsors. On Sunday the quickest 16 True Street cars will be invited to race heads-up for bonus cash in the Nitto Tire West Coast Shootout class.
The NMRA/NMCA West Coast Shootout will also feature the Hotchkis Sports Suspension Autocross and the Baer Brake Systems Speed-Stop-Challenge, where folks that prefer corners can race both for one low entry fee. The TREMEC / UPR Products Car Show will feature some of the coolest hot rods and muscle cars on the planet at Auto Club Speedway shining up and showing off for the fans! And don't forget the world class manufacturers midway where you can talk to the experts and find the parts you need for the best prices.
