Small Tire Outlaw

ESTA vs The World

This year’s version of the No Time event was arguably the best on yet as there were 17 cars on the property and they put on one hell of a race.

!While we could not announce or publish any of the times we had some of the cars dipping well into the 4 second zone at speeds over 170 mph in the 1/8 mile. The race was billed as ESTA vs. The World and while the ESTA gang ran very well they still have a bit of catching up to do in order to stop the racers that came in from out of town. By the time the semi’s rolled around there was Tyler Bedell in John Bova’s Camaro as the lone ESTA representative, then it was Rachael Jewell in her Chevelle, Josh Mills in his Mustang and Moe AlFaqih in his Mustang. The results of the semi’s were Josh Mills stopped Rachael and Moe took care of Tyler who spun the tires at the hit. In the final round Josh drilled the tree with a fantastic .018 compared to Moe’s .154, but it was it was not enough to hold back the “Copper Camel” as Moe drove around Josh for the well deserved win.

A special thanks to Vince Musolino for rounding up this group of racers to compete as well as the racers themselves. As always Gary, Zakk and Jace had the track prepared flawlessly and kept it that way all day long. Thanks to David Hilner for taking some great shots and giving us some exposure on the E3xtreme website. (e3xtreme.net) Hopefully by next year we will have most of this Covid stuff behind us and we can let in everyone to come out and watch the event.
