CSCN Weekend Ramp Up!

By:       Bruce Biegler

 One of the most anticipated summer weekends in all of Canadian drag racing is almost upon us.  Cayuga Dragway at TMP will host the Canadian Street Car Nationals this weekend…..

The event which is hosted by DaSilva Racing (Pickering ON) in conjunction with presenting sponsor Matco Tools will coagulate some of the fastest “Door” cars in the world in a variety of classes and is not to be missed.

The event includes numerous added bonuses.  The very popular Can-Am Stock/SS and TNT Super Series (for 10.90 class cars) have both scheduled “double headers”.  The Can/Am Stock Super Stock series will have time trials each morning followed by full eliminations on Saturday and Sunday afternoons.  It will be season races #5 and #6 for those competitors.   Canada’s Rob Carpenter is the current points leader.

The event will in fact also mark the beginning of the 2nd half of the season for the Joe’s Transmission TNT Super Series who will run race numbers 8 and 9 this weekend.  New York’s Pete Maduri Jr., leads their points chase following a recent very impressive winning streak.

Both of those series racers will also have the opportunity to compete within the special Super Bowl SHOOTOUT on Sunday evening.  The winner (whoever runs the closest to his selected dial in overall) will land a $7000 tool box from Matco Tools. 

The eliminator winners (from all event categories) from both Saturday and Sunday will automatically qualify for that event ending honor.
