Welcome to the new look for the Canada
We are only
10 days away from the first race of the 2017 season. A new title sponsor
is the biggest news for this coming season. Henry Zacharias and Zacharias
Investments has the title banner and we welcome him as the top dog. Henry
is a veteran drag racer and the last four years he has been a regular
in the series. Henry has a brand new 55 Chevy and we are hoping to see
it out this season. We will see a few new cars this season and a few cars
returning to action after some time away. Big news comes from Joe Mellof
this year as he bought one of the best Doorcars from the NW.
has cooled off his racing the last couple years and he sold the GPX (B/AA)
to the Mellof family. Joe will debut the car in 10 days. Rumor has it
that the Camaro he ran the last two years will be in the hands of Josh
in the near future as well. Very cool!
Joe and his company Mellof Excavating has also come on board as a series
sponsor for the 2017 season.
Terry Shuflita will be back this season after a year away. He has a Pro
Stock legal bullet and a five speed Liberty in the Firebird, making his
ride as close to a legal Pro Stock car as you can get. Will we see 6 seconds
@ 200mph, My guess is we will once the bugs are worked out. Ray Bollinger
has a new Blake Foster built Camaro. He will likely concentrate in Top
Sportsman, but I expect a few forays into the DS class as well.
from Langley was out licensing his new early model Camaro. It is a 8.50
legal car with over 1000 hp. He could become a new member as well. Pat
McNally has moved down here from the Edmonton area.
Dean Woods GPX a few years ago and has a big inch Schmidt bullet between
the frame rails. The car runs well into the 6's, and if he runs doorslammer
along with TS, he will be near the top of qualifying.
If the weather is good we could expect 20 cars at race one.
A big welcome
to Chris Moffet as a series sponsor. Chris of course is Marcy's other
half and he has stepped into the real estate world after years as a sales
executive in radio. He is looking forward to serving all your real estate
Happy New Year to each and every one of you, I hope you are all having
a restful off season. It's time to get your engines started though as
our season is only four months away! Consider this your stand by call!
First and foremost I'd like to send a huge, Thank You, out to all of our
sponsors and express my appreciation for their continued support. Without
these very loyal sponsors, our association would not be the success that
it continues to be year after year. As Racers, I strongly encourage you
to please pick up the phone and express your gratitude to these sponsors
by supporting their products and services or at least a conversation to
let them know their support it appreciated. I'd like to take this opportunity
to personally thank Norm Wilson and Fortins Engines for their support
over the last number of years as our title sponsor. Fortins Engines is
taking a step back from the title sponsorship this year but will still
be staying on as a race sponsor for 2017. That being said I'd like to
make a very exciting announcement that we do have a new title sponsor
for the 2017 season! Another huge, Thank You, going out to Henry Zacharias
of Zacharias Investments for stepping up as our title sponsor for 2017!!
I am also super excited to announce we have been given the opportunity
to race at an NHRA event! This is a huge opportunity for us and I couldn't
be more excited! We are scheduled to race at the NHRA National Open at
Mission Raceway on July 22-23!
Also another big Thank You to Terry Millar for volunteering his time for
another season as Race Director!
I tried very hard to schedule an event at Pacific Raceway this year but
with their limited Saturday/Sunday event schedule it was impossible to
find a date that did not mean racing three weekends in a row or conflicting
with a weekend we were already racing. I apologize to those of you that
expressed your interest in racing there again this year, I definitely
tried very hard to make it work and I hope we can work something out to
race there again in the future.
If you have any questions regarding sponsoring a race this season, or
if you have any questions regarding the rules and regulations or schedule
for 2017, please do not hesitate to contact me.
