DRO AA/FC Challenge at The Strip at Las Vegas


It’s a new venue for the Mickey Thompson Tires AA/FC Challenge presented by Victory Performance and Comp Cams. To begin the fourth season, the Series hits The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway for the first time.

Many of the regular Midwestern teams haven’t made the tow, so a majority of the racers are from the Western states and Canada. Indiana racer Paul Romine is the returning champion of the Rockabilly Rod Reunion.

Can the Midwestern cars hold their own again or will the California guys show ‘em how?

The Tipsy One has crunched the numbers and calls it this way. And remember, this is just for fun -- although we are in Las Vegas....
