Walsh On The Verge Of History At Street Car Super Nats In Las Vegas

Cool temps, fast cars, and a well-prepared track all worked in favor of Detroit, Mich.-native Don Walsh Jr., Friday during Hughes Performance Pro Street qualifying at the Street Car Super Nationals at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. In the first round of qualifying, he ran one of the quickest times in doorslammer history, laying down a lap of 5.748 seconds at 260.56 mph and backed it up under the lights, running .003 seconds faster to take the provisional No. 1 spot in the class.

Jose “El General” Gonzalez finished the day second on the charts with a 5.770 second ET and 2012 NHRA Pro Mod champ Troy Coughlin rounded out the top three with an ET of 5.843 seconds at 253.14 mph.

“The car went through the lights with a lot of RPM, so I knew that it was running (good) mph and it felt good from the time it left,” Walsh said of his first round on Friday. “As far as the car drifting around, it moved around a little bit, but no radical moves. We had to slightly pedal it on that run, so the car could have run a little bit faster, but I don’t know how much better and it really depends on what we have for a race track for the rest of the weekend.”

In the MagnaFuel Outlaw 10.5 class, the competition was just as fast with San Antonio, Texas, native Mike Murillo making the quickest pass of his career with an ET of 6.354 seconds to hold on to the provisional pole Friday night. Doug Sikora was .034 seconds slower to finish the day second with Billy Glidden running third with a 6.450 second ET at 217.98 mph.

Other top qualifiers going into Saturday were Willard Kinzer (6.733 ET, 230.92, Extreme Drag Radial); Jeff Young (7.463 ET, 189.07 mph, Mickey Thompson Wild Street); Michael DeMayo (8.214 ET, 159.32 mph, Edelbrock Hot Street); Keith Winters (.001 Index, Brodix Cylinder Heads Bracket 1); Ken “Dak” Spears (9.601 ET, 9.60 Index, Super Index); Kelly Davis (.006 Index, Ford Racing Mustang Maddness); Sergio Felipe (10.605 ET, 10.60 Index, Triple Index); and Brent Calvert (.002 Index, Goodyear Racing Open Comp).

Thursday night, Gonzalez, a native of the Dominican Republic, took home the win in the event-opening Daystar Products Dash For Cash in his 1968 Camaro. In addition to bragging rights, the Pro Street competitors had the opportunity to earn $500 in cash for both top speed and fastest ET. Gonzalez decided to take both prizes with his ET of 5.806 seconds at 256.16 mph.

Also Thursday night, Willard Kinzer of Allen,Ky., ran the quickest lap ever on a set of Mickey Thompson tires in the Extreme Drag Radial class with his 6.733 second run. In Outlaw 8.5, George Rayguza set records in both speed and ET with his run of 5.132 seconds at 142.07 mph.

The Street Car Super Nationals is a one-of-a-kind event bringing racers from all across the US and Canada to race for some of the largest cash purses in the sport. Add in another $250,000 in posted contingency and bonus awards and it's a who's who in the staging lanes. Past and current champions from the ADRL, IHRA, NSCA, NHRA Pro Mod, PSCA, Orlando, Shakedown at E-town and many others will be in attendance for this can’t-miss event.

Purses include $20,000 to the winner in Pro Street, $10,000 to the winner in Outlaw 10.5, and $5,000.00 to the winner in XDR/TT-5. All told, the event will see more than 40 Pro Street/Pro Mods, 32 Outlaw 10.5's, and another 250+ of the baddest hot rods on the planet in addition to the Lucas Oil Car Show Series.
