SpeedFactory Racing Event Update

OUR NEWS: Tacoma, WA 11/09/17: World Cup Finals - Mechanicsville, Maryland November 3-5, 2017

The 22nd annual World Cup Finals, Import VS Domestic once again lived up the hype and proved to be by far the best race of the year. Sold out crowds and packed to the limits pits proved this is indeed the Super Bowl of drag racing where the best of the best come to battle it out! With 40-70 cars in each class trying to make the 32 car fields, even qualifying at this event is a major accomplishment. The weather was ranged from 80* on Friday to the mid-60's on Saturday and Sunday. We had a decent event overall with all 3 of our cars qualifying in the top half of the fields. Sadly we experienced an onslaught of both mechanical and electrical issues of various severity with all 3 cars that created lots of working on the cars trying to find and alleviate these issues.

Joel in the BLOX Racing SFWD Civic qualified #15 of 32 in the Super Street class with a solid 8.342 @ 182.55mph pass. Unfortunately shifting issues resulted in a round 1 loss which was disappointing for us all.

 

Cole in the Vibrant Performance SFWD Civic battled issues with repeatedly hurting cylinder #1 during qualifying. He still mustered a best pass of 8.333 @ 172.14mph during qualifying with a hurt motor and was able to get in the show as #14 of 32 in the Super Street class with that pass. We finally traced it down to a bad fuel injector and he laid down a solid 8.201 @ 181.59mph on a low power tuneup to win first round. Sadly, in round 2 an ignition coil decided to fail and he posted a losing 8.843 @ 162.57mph effort on 3 cylinders.

James in the Competition Clutch Outlaw FWD Civic qualified #8 of 32 in the new Wild Street class which was RWD/AWD & Domestic dominated with a 7.841 @ 200.08mph pass and posted Top Speed in qualifying. We struggled all event to get the car back into proper form since the fire and had to chase issues with the suspension which caused the chassis to be out of control. We really needed the 4th qualifying round to figure things out but lost that hit due to rain so we crossed our fingers and hoped for the best. Round 1 resulted in a win with a 7.939 @ 198.47mph. By round 2 we were finally close to getting the car back into form but narrowly lost by .02 secs at the stripe with our quickest pass of the event, a 7.744 @ 199.17mph. The crowd was stoked to see the 200+mph trap speed in qualifying, and we left happy and with a healthy car that is still showing great potential to drive the ET's even lower.

Some of our top-performing customer builds also competed at World Cup Finals; traveling all the way from the Virgin Islands, Florida, and Alaska!

Fall is upon us and we will spend the next few months planning & preparing for 2018, as we will be making some big changes to our program next year.

Thanks to you all for your continued support in 2017 and we hope to see you at the track next year!

Sincerely, The SpeedFactory Team
