I didn’t get to go to NITRO SHOOTOUT 1: UNFINISHED BUSINESS AT BARONA. But, when my Fuel Altered neighbor, Rob Winefsky, said there was a spot in the rig for me to tag along, then I was game.

NITRO SHOOTOUT 2: UNFINISHED BUSINESS AT BARONA put together 4 Nostalgia Nitro Funny Cars, 7 Fuel Altereds, and 2 Nostalgia Top Fuel Dragsters. There were also several 7.00 cars, A/FXrs, and other fast cars making for a fun evening.

The nitro cars ran 500 feet while the others ran the full 1/8th. Nitro cars ran 2 rounds to see who the 2 quickest would be for a final shot at the title. By the time the smoke cleared, only ‘Nitro Jim’ Holtz made it to the final and after a smokey burnout, he took the final pass of the night winning the nitro portion of the show.

Plans are to run a race like this next year, as well.
