Super Bowl Results
The NMCA/NMRA Super Bowl match is a great time for the racers and fans as well as a chance to earn a little extra money and bragging rights for a year. Ford Muscle versus Nostalgia Muscle Car were paired in the Super Bowl tonight with NMRA leading the overall series eight to three. Andy Warren and Bryan Parker were matched up with Parker having the head start over Warren, with Warren taking the win on reaction time and thus scoring a point for NMCA.

Duell took the win on his 9.50 index running a 9.60 and scoring another one for NMCA. Gordon Harlow paired with Daryl Bureski in his 1970 Oldsmobile convertible and scored another point for NMCA in a double break out match.
Up next was Truck and Lightning racer Bob Dill versus Factory Super Car racer Scott Libersher. The truck got a small head start, to no avail, as Libersher scores yet another point to team NMCA. NMRA True Street winner Cal Hayward matched with NMCA True Street winner Kevin McCotter who won NMCA Gear Vendors True street with a 9.95 average. Cal had a long wait at the line with the faster of the two cars but he managed to pull it out, running a 7.24 personal best. Jeff Rudolf is representing NMCA with his Nitrous Pro Street Nova against Lexington, Illinois’ Marvin Knack with a very long four-second head start going to the Mustang, representing Super Stang this weekend.

Next up was Coyote Modified racer Tommy Annunziata versu Marty Stinnett, Mickey Thompson Radial Wars winner. Stinnet’s index was a 3.90 to Annunziata’s 5.00 with Stinnett likely set to run better than that considering the conditions. He didn’t quite get there with a 3.94 to Annunziata’s 5.02 moving the NMRA up five to seven. Next was the Street Outlaw final round rematch with Rob Goss and Manny Buginga with a 4.41 and 4.38 on the boards and no break out rule in effect. Buginga took the win running a 4.36 earning the win for NMRA.
The final pairing was a double points match but the NMRA has already locked up the win thanks to Buginga’s stellar run. Charlie Booze Jr faced off with Jesse Wilson running side by side with no break out earning the win with a 10.20 at 129 to 10.30 at 125 for Wilson.
