The Pacific Street Car Association will resume racing this weekend at Fontana for the Calvert Racing Summer Nationals, after taking a week off following The MagnaFuel Nationals at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, where David Bevers of North Las Vegas beat Enrique Soto of Lennox CA to win the MagnaFuel Outlaw 10.5 title. Bevers drove a 1966 Chevrolet El Camino final with a run of 4.704 seconds at 153.35 mph, while Doug Sikora ended up the top qualifier in the class. In addition, Santa Maria, CA’s Mike Orban broke the year-old Mickey Thompson Tires Wild Street ET Record with a solid 4.875, which qualified him No. 1 and led to a runner-up finish to the new points leader Armen Maghdessian of Westmister, CA.

"We had a blast at Fontana and we can't wait to get back up there this weekend," exclaimed PSCA President Mel Roth. "In fact, we're giving our fans/spectators tickets that are half off to let them know how much we appreciate them and how much we are glad to be back here."

Also claiming class titles at The Strip were: Roger Holder (Bakersfield, CA) in MagnaFuel XDR/TT5; Casey Van Tol (Orland, CA) in Vortech Superchargers Outlaw 8.5; Joe Keurjikian (Hollywood, CA) in AOS Hot Street; Brent Calvert (Lancaster, CA) in Accufab Mustang Madness; and Nick Kendrick (Lake Havasu City, AZ) in Edelbrock Super Index; and Charlie Jorgensen (Wildomar, Calif.) in Ross Triple Index.

The Summer Nationals will run June 6-8, beginning with an open test and tune Friday 11 a.m. - 5 p.m. Actual racing will commence Saturday morning at 8 with Jr. Dragsters kicking off the program. Spectator gates open at 7 a.m. both days.
