Words & Photos by Sherm Porter

With 30 entries in NE-1, as well as 38 entries in 7.0 PRO qualified, the action was fast & furious!

NE-1 runs against a 7.60 index, with speeds from 149.75 mph to Mike Padar’s top speed of 201.73 mph.  When the smoke had cleared, Hans Jakob defeated Scott Corbett for the Championship.

7.0 PRO qualifies against a 7.00 index, with speeds from 153.54 mph to the quick 201.91 mph laid down by Reg Deforest. In the final Las Vegas racer, Allen Taylor, in his Krazy T roadster, put Long Beach driver Dave Rosenberg in the trailer, taking the Championship home to Las Vegas…..

Enjoy the action
