2017 Mission Canadian Open

Here is a video of this years Mission Canadian Open from Mission Raceway shot by Doug Nichol. Shows all the qualifying and elimination runs.

Mr. P's Detailing

Low qualifier award

Everyone at the RMNFCA would to thank Rick and Karen Forman from Mr. P's Detailing for donating the gift package of cash and detailing (value $1000.00) to the low qualifier at the Canadian Diesel Drags. Al Weich took home the package running a very good 6.91 (on a 6.90 index)

JB's Power Centre Canadian Diesel Shootout

Cal Tebb wins

Everyone at the RMNFCA would like to thank the NHRDA and JB's Power Centre for inviting us out to last Saturdays JB's Power Centre Canadian Diesel Shootout. We had a lot of fun showing the diesel racing fans our style of racing (big burnouts and close side by side racing) and we also got to see something new, in what a diesel power vehicle is capable of. The weather, NHRDA staff, Castrol Raceway staff and all the fans were amazing. We ran a Chicago Style Shootout (two qualifying runs with two closest to the 6.90 index racing in the finals). Cal Tebb ended up beating Al Weich in the finals (6.98 to a 6.96 for a holeshot victory) Look for more photos on the Canadian Diesel Drags event page or in the photo gallery.

Hot August Nights

What a night

The RMNFCA teams were out in full force at this years Hot August Nights at Castrol Raceway in Edmonton, AB. The stands were packed and the fans were treated to excellent weather and some very exciting racing. The event is always fun for us as racers too because it is a match race format not actual competition. This gives us more time to mingle with the fans and the other racers. Check the Hot August Nights event page or the photo gallery for more photos.

Update from Sunday at Castrol Raceway. Norm Kolwich stole away the win away from Joey with an almost perfect run (6.9007 with a .015 reaction time) Shane Reykdal and Mike Reynolds were both too quick running 6.73 and 6.78 respectively. All in all a very strange weekend out at Castrol Raceway but the race season has started and that is a great thing after a very long off season.

Update from Saturday qualifying at Castrol Raceway. Joey Steckler made a great pass today and is sitting #1 with a 6.911, Cal Tebb ran a slightly to quick 6.897 but had some parts breakage on his last qualifying pass and will have to sit out Sundays event, Norm Kolwich ran a little to quick as well with a 6.81, Ron Stennes ran a low 7 second pass (didn't get exact time) and Shane Reykdal made a half track checkout pass and one full pass with a soft tuneup to a 7.35.

Update from Sunday testing. Because Cal made two great runs Saturday he decided his was ready to go for the first event and sat out Sunday. Jimmy ran two great runs of a 6.83 and a 6.87, so Jimmy and his Bulldogger team are dialed in pretty good for our 6.90 index. Ron Stennes was hit hard by the flu bug all weekend and decided to not run the car and the Canadian White Trash team had some parts breakage and never got a full pass in but should be ready for the first race next weekend.

Sounds like Jimmy Fersch and Ron Stennes were doing finishing touches on their cars yesterday out at the Castrol Raceway and I believe they did not make any runs. Cal made two passes however and looks like he is ready to go. Cal ran a 6.98 on his first pass and a 6.93 on his second. Pretty good out of the box for our 6.90 second index. I hear Jimmy and Ron are planning to make a couple of passes today as well as Troy Sitko and the Canadian White Trash team fired their car up yesterday and are planning on being out at the track today as well.

Cal Tebb warmed his car for the first time this year today and it sounded really good.
