NMCA WEST ProCharger Street Outlaw racer Eric Gustafson has issued a "First in the Sixes" challenge to all racers in the class.
NMCA WEST Racer Puts $1k Bounty on the Line
NMCA WEST ProCharger Street Outlaw racer Eric Gustafson has issued a "First in the Sixes" challenge to all racers in the class. The California racer recently wrote, "With two races left to go, we thought we would have a little fun. Coast Packing Co. and their sponsored race team, R&E Racing, are putting up $1,000 to the first NMCA WEST Street Outlaw car to run sixes."
When asked how and why he came up the idea, Gustafson said he wanted to challenge other racers in the class to step up. "I know there are several racers who are capable of running in the sixes. I thought tossing in $1,000 might draw attention to what many of my fellow racers are capable of. I know I need to be on my game to reach the six-second zone, and while many consider me among the favorites to go in the sixes, I am certainly not alone. It's time for all of us to get off our asses and run the number. Vegas at night might just give us the air to do it in as could Fontana in the fall," he added.
Gustafson says he hopes other racers and manufacturers will match his challenge in hopes of sweetening the pot even more. If he wins, Gustafson said he will donate the initial $1,000 from Coast Packing Co. to a charity.
