Lamb Wins Sonoma, collects Wally
Justin Lamb took home a big win at the NHRA Sonoma Nationals on July 29th. He was racing his B & B Cobalt in SS/CM and collected a Wally for his efforts. Justin cut the tree down and ran a 8.586 beating Dave Rayborn and his slower reacting 8.589 in the final round of eliminations.
This makes the third win Justin has collected at Sonoma, and his Ninth at a National Event. We have a feeling that track is going to be a favorite of his in the future!
Customers out in Force at NMCA Super Bowl
Our customers qualified quite well at the NMCA Super Bowl. Darren was driving Don Baskin's GTO in Nostalgia Pro Street, and it was the only car that picked up in the heat of the day. Darren qualified the GTO in #2 spot with a firstname.lastname@example.org. Dave Beeson ran some killer numbers making his competitors worried during qualifying, he busted off a 7.17 in qualifying putting him in the #1 spot and also set a new NMCA NPS ET and MPH record!!
Darren went to the semi's and Dave went on to runner up in the final round. He didn't quite take enough power out to hook the monster Camaro and it spun a little to much letting Joe Bucaro get out on him. You can't complain too much when you can take home runner up money and a New National Record set in the heat of the summer! That still makes for a great weekend of racing in our book! Beeson's Camaro is one of the earliest cars turned out by B & B, and we're excited to see it still out not only going strong, but setting records too! Way to go Dave!
