This weekend is Doorwarz VI
Dan is looking forward to racing the Camaro all weekend long and is looking for the 6 second zone with the doorcar. It has run as quick as a 7.02/198
RAD Torque systems is the proud sponsor of the Top Sportsman class this weekend.
It is a double header For Top Sportsman. It is also a double header for all the bracket classes and Darien will likely compete as he is one point out of 1st place in the Super Pro standings. John Tabak will race in Pro Bracket as well.

The Mission Raceway Lordco BC Nationals took place this past weekend and it was a pretty good weekend for a couple of RAD sponsored teams. Firstly, Dan's son Darien won Super Pro on Sunday in solid fashion taking out Jr. Dragster rival Bradee Lowe in the final round.
Darien was strong all day Sunday and had good light and a consistent race car earning him the coveted Silver Wally, commemorating Mission Raceway's 25th anniversary of the event.
John Tabak won Pro Bracket in his unstoppable s-10 pick-up. John is undefeated so far this year running his round record to 16-0.
Paul Nero won Top Dragster on Sunday of the double header and has proven to be a solid candidate for the world championship in Top Dragster.
He currently leads the national (and divisional) points ahead of over 300 other competitors. Casey Plaizier won two races on the weekend. First he won the Super Gas shoot-out Saturday then he took on all 40 competitors in SG to earn the win.
Dan, did not fair as well, as he went out early in both the Dragster and the Camaro, but I am guessing he would forgo any wins to see his son have success like he did.
Good job Darien!

Dan was out testing his new all motor Camaro (750+ cu.in. Sonnys EFI last thursday and once the injectors were dialed in the car made a solid pass to end the day. He will run the same combination in his new M&M dragster when it is ready to go in a few weeks.
