The second event of the season for the Alberta based Rocky Mountain Nostalgia FC circuit featured a first time winner…
Driving his slick looking vintage Corvette bodied machine, Norm Kolwich finally broke through for his first win in the Mickey Thompson Trail Tire-sponsored series during last weekend’s event held at Edmonton’s Castrol Raceway.
He qualified #1 with his strong 6.92 @ 206 mph on the 6.90 index. He met #2 qualifier Joey Steckler 6.96 @ 209 mph in the final round. It was a close race but it was all Norm, his 6.91 was too much for Stecklers 6.98.
The race also featured a new comer, Richard Morrison (from JB’s Power Centre/Dix Performance North Operations) who recently purchased the Pontiac funny car driven by Ryan Hodgson. Richard made licencing passes all weekend long. With steady improvement every pass, he finished off the weekend with a 6.98 @ 204 mph to complete his licence.
The Good Vibrations award for the event’s overall quick reaction time went to Cal Tebb for his .042 light in round #2.
Four of the Rocky regulars Joey Steckler, Cal Tebb, Jimmy Fersch and Shane Reykdal have made plans to attend the IHRA Nitro Jam race in Spokane July 10th. The whole group will be back in Edmonton the following weekend for the IHRA Nitro Jam event. Then off to Mission BC for the Canadian National Open July 24 to 26th.
