Drag racing’s premier fast street car circuit (NMCA) includes early season Pro Mod drama….

 The racing was incredibly intense and impressive as drivers from across the country threw everything they had at the track for the 17th Annual NMCA Muscle Car Mayhem, March 7-10 at Bradenton Motorsports Park in Florida.

The first of six events on this year’s highly anticipated NMCA tour featured side-by-side passes, personal bests and records made by racers dead set on driving to the Aerospace Components Winner’s Circle.

There were 19 drivers dedicated to making a 16-car field In VP Racing Fuels Xtreme Pro Mod, and Joe Baker blasted to a 3.72 in his Corvette to set the pace. 

A total of thirteen drivers behind him managed 3-second passes, but thundering to the final were Tom Blincoe and Jim Widener. After the pair of Corvettes leaped off the line with almost identical reaction times, Blincoe wheeled to the win with a 3.75, while Widener was forced to get out of the throttle.

Racing this turbocharged ’63 Corvette Tom Blincoe drew first blood for NMCA Pro Mod class racing in 2019.
