During the winter months of December and January, a lot of racing action takes place in the warmer, sunnier, better weather of southern Arizona. Mopar cars showed up in force at each event we attended, even one for Pontiacs! Featured in our lead in photo above is the 2011 Dodge Challenger of Andrew Durham who traveled from Monrovia, CA, to be part of the Stock/Super Stock program at the ADRA (Arizona Drag Racing Association) in Tucson.
Stepping back slightly to mid-December at Steve Barcak’s Phoenix Nostalgia and Pontiac Heaven race is the popular J.D. Campbell from Prescott, AZ, who was in the thick of action in the AFX category.
The ’69 Dart, while not an original Hemi Dart, now sports a Hemi engine featuring dual spark plug cylinder heads! J.D. is close to ready, IF the West Coast follows a trend and starts Nostalgia Pro Stock racing.
