Import Face-Off | Firebird Raceway | Tucson, AZ
Despite the bad weather, the third annual NOS Energy Drink’s Tucson Import Face-Off had the highest attendance from previous years. All race classes were full and the car show was packed to capacity with some contestants having to park outside the designated display area because there was no space. You want drama? A few contestants from the Supra club protested that the entries parked outside the designated area should be disqualified for not following the "park inside the yellow tape" instructions even though there were no more available spots! Because of their protests they are banned from a year of competition. The drag racing action was hot with many build cause coming in to cause a ruckus. The racing was clean and fair resulting in some serious action for the fans to sink their teeth into.
