TRUE COMPETITORS: Just before FWD finals, IFO official had to call off the race due to Sunday curfew after an FIS car oiled down the entire track.  Finalists Jose Jimenez from Houston, TX (Honda Civic) and Michael Howard from Abbeville, AL (Honda Civic) split payout to $700 each, but wanted to see who would take home the trophy and true win. Instead of just giving to fastest qualifier which would have been Jose (8.970 @ 165.71 mph) both agreed on a 330' foot race. Mike came out of the hole hard and seemed to be pulling away, but Jose's vtec cardio prevailed at about 250' where he passed Mike for the win.

BROKEN YET STILL WINNING: 2011 All Motor Pro points leader, Jason Lumpkin, from Fort Worth, TX with his lime green CRX won the AMP class running an 11.555 second pass @ 120.22 mph in the finals against Josh Chlystek from Mobile, AL who ran 11.569 @ 117.81.  Jason, who normally runs high 10s, was only able to run mid 11s this day after breaking 3rd gear in the second round of qualifying (1/2/4 shifting).

All under one roof (although spread out into three halls) were a showcase of vehicles ranging from the expected classics, rat rods, and muscle cars to awesome tuner vehicles both import and domestic.

SEMA 2015: The Raddest Things We Saw at SEMA This Year

As always, PASMAG scoured the show floor of the SEMA Show to find some of the coolest things on wheels in existence. From the pre-opening media day to SEMA Ignited on the last night, here are just a few of the things we thought were pretty awesome this year! THE REVIVAL OF RUSTY SLAMMINGTONWe all thought it was gone for good, that old chopped up, rusted and body-scraping BMW E28. The famed Rusty Slammington was the victim of an unfortunate garage fire and the world of stance had a moment of silence. A few years ago, a couple teaser images…
