The Victory Performance Nostalgia Super Stock Series opened
its third season as part of historic Byron Dragway’s annual Spring Nationals on May 5-6. Thirty-three teams representing five states and all of the major Detroit brands were on hand for the event which also marked the beginning of the 2012 Points Championship.

Series regular Jay Friehage drove his nine-second Hemi-powered ‘68 Barracuda from the number one qualifying spot to the winner’s circle on Sunday, defeating Wally Krueger and his 10-second wedge headed ‘64 Plymouth sedan when Krueger red-lighted away his chance for victory.
