After noticing no other national Import events were going back to New England this race season, Import Face-Off continued to fill the void by scheduling New England Dragway in 2010.  The event was such a success, Joe Lombardo, New England Dragway manager, has already scheduled the 2nd  annual New England IFO for the same weekend in 2011 and most likely a second one in the fall.

Import Face-Off 2010: Baton Rouge, LA

Johnny Williams pulled the upset win in the FWD class after number qualifier and 2010 points leader, Aaron Lopez (San Antonio, TX) timed out in the first round of eliminations. Aaron was looking to take the easy win, but he did not realize the timing clock started as soon as his opponent’s second staging bulb flickers. The second bulb never stayed completely lite, only flickered, due to an extremely shallow stage. Before the second bulb, both racers sat on one light playing a “staging duel” for about 15 seconds. This just goes to show there is more to drag racing…

Auto Gallery Car Show 2012

. Ever been to the Louvre in Paris or the Smithsonian in Washington, DC? Imagine all the art pieces, along each wall and in your mind.

With the stage in the center along the horizon line, there were two aisles of cars to walk through and admire. Auto Gallery was an intimate show, with moderate quantity of cars…

It’s the second time that the DMCC series comes to this racetrack but for this year they used a new layout that was more technical and a lot more exiting for the fans. Unlike the other rounds of DMCC this event was only a one day event so the entire day was jam packed with action. The practice session went off great with all teams setting up the cars for this unique track. The layout had a real high speed entry that…
