2014 NHRA: Al Zafiri Smashes Pro Mod Records in Epic PSCA SCSN Final at Gateway


Over the course of the Pacific Street Car Association’s Street Car Super Nationals: Anarchy at the Arch at Gateway Motorsports Park, the door slammer world record has been the subject of a tug of war. Frankie “The Madman” Taylor set the ET record with his ’04 Corvette at 5.550. Turky Al Zafiri answered with a 5.531 in his ’69 Camaro, but Taylor finished qualifying Friday night with a 5.529.

Saturday night, those records were destroyed.

In a head-to-head matchup that seemed pre-determined, Taylor and Al Zafiri faced off in the Pro Line Racing Outlaw Pro Mods finals, but not before Taylor made another record-shattering pass, this time dipping into the 4s at 5.479 seconds. Al Zafiri answered back with the speed record with a run of 272.83 mph, breaking his own speed record from Friday night.

Late Saturday night, under humid condition, Al Zafiri took the victory in what is easily the quickest side-by-side door slammer pass in the history of drag racing. The Q80 racing drive had the last say on the ET record with a 5.461 second pass, very nearly resetting the speed record at 272.50 mph. Taylor made him work for it, though, with his pass of 5.476 seconds at 263.77 mph.

“I’m just at a loss for words,” said PSCA President Mel Roth. “I literally can’t believe what we witnessed here this weekend. Since the 2012 Street Car Super Nationals in Las Vegas, we’ve seen the ET record fall by nearly a full three-tenths of a second. If this isn’t the best door slammer show in drag racing, I don’t know what is.”

In the Hughes Performance Pro Mod class, Canadian Jim Bell topped No. 1 qualifier Kevin Fiscus. Former NHRA Pro Mod champion and two-time defending SCSN winner Troy Coughlin went out early after mechanical issues struck him at the starting line.

Other Anarchy at the Arch winners were: Scott Lowery (MagnaFuel 10.5), Justin Martin (MagnaFuel XDR/TT5), Lamar Swindoll (Mickey Thompson Wild Street), Krusty Ramsey (Steve Schmidt Outlaw 8.5), Clay Tyler (Goodyear Open Comp), Greg Cason (Edelbrock Super Index), Dennis Pearson (Ross Racing Triple Index), Corey Landolt (Brodix Bracket 1), and Clay Tyler (Calvert Racing Street Muscle).

The next PSCA event on the schedule is the Mickey Thompson West Coast Shootout at Fontana with the season-ending Street Car Super Nationals X scheduled for November 20-23 at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
