IFO Drag Racing - 411

Import Faceoff, teamed with NOS Energy Drink, to bring import drag to Virginia Motorsports Park.

And in yet more East Coast news (kind of), Import Faceoff, teamed with NOS Energy Drink, recently rounded the Northeast on their way out west, bringing import drag competition to Virginia Motorsports Park, before Columbus, Ohio's National Trail Raceway. In VA, Justin Barnes and his '92 Eclipse proved unstoppable in the Forced Induction Pro class, as not even a 1,200whp Supra could stop them in the finals, when the 8.5-second beast succumbed to kill switch problems and allowed Justin to skate to a 9.974@142.07 win. Not far behind was FWD class winner Shad Sawyer, whose '99 Civic claimed the final-round win over rival Honda pilot Ricky Lower, with a 10.592@147.44. Past 2NR cover car owner Jamie Carter (Jan '10) pulled seconds faster than anyone else in competition, his '98 Supra claiming an easy Forced Induction Pro win, running as fast as a 7.99@184.4 in Ohio. FWD class of that event boiled down to a domestic-versus-domestic battle, which we normally wouldn't mention if not for the fact that SRT-4 pilot Jon Moore broke the wastegate off his '98 in the second round of Qualifying, left the race to repair it at his shop, made it back in time for eliminations, and eventually won with a 10.517@147.05 to his opponent's 10.565@138.63. Now that's racing!
