Things are definitely not yet back to normal, but we can say that some racing is taking place across this great country of ours. 2 events worth highlighting are the No Brainer Nationals at Shadyside Dragway in North Carolina, and the PSCA Rocky Mountain Summer Series at Bandimere Speedway in Colorado.

Race: No Brainer Nationals
Location: Shadyside Dragway, Shelby NC
As Drag Racing continues in 2020 with somewhat limited spectators, The No Brainer Nationals was staged up and the battle began at Shadyside Dragway in Shelby, NC on Sep 4th & 5th. Classes included DXP Street, Real 28s, No Clock Small Block and 6.00 Index as the racers all vied for the payouts.
Vortech Racer Alton Clements lines up to take down another competitor with his V-30 105A Vortech Race Supercharger as he moves his way through the field in the Real 28s class.
On the final round of Real 28s NT, Alton Clements car was doing its thing and hooked up well, taking his Vortech Supercharged Fox Body Mustang all the way through to the Winner's Circle. However, being a charity event, and Alton being the standup guy that he is, Clements mentioned on Facebook that he split the pot, and even donated some for the 2nd Annual No Brainer Event!
Race: PSCA Rocky Mountain Summer Series
Location: Bandimere Speedway, Morrison CO
The PSCA Rocky Mountain Summer Series kept the pedal down and continued with Round 3 getting under way on Sept. 18th & 19th at Bandimere Speedway in Morrison, CO just outside Denver. The weekend class races included Outlaw 10.5, XDR & Limited 235, as the drivers competed in the different classes to see who had what it takes to claim the victory.
Vortech Racer and Rocky Mountain Summer Series Veteran Andrew Osborne took the PSCA Magnafuel XDR Class Win with a come from behind victory, pushing Vortech V-30 123A Supercharged 432 cubic inch Small Block Ford to a 4.663 E.T @157.21 mph to edge out Ryan Scully's 4.820 E.T. @ 154.17 mph in the final round!
Vortech Racer Dave Eggerling and RADegg Racing had a good weekend of his own, beating out Corey Mitroyic in the final round with a 5.562 E.T. @126.39 mph vs. Mitroyic's 5.591 E.T @ 125.16 mph. This was good enough for Eggerling and his Patriotic Chevy to secure the Limited 235 class win, trusting his Vortech V-7 YSi-B Supercharged 406 cubic inch Small Block Chevy to take him all the way to the top spot in the event.
This year has certainly been different as far as motorsports is concerned, but even with a pandemic, race events are happening, and (unsurprisingly) Vortech Racers are finding themselves in the all-too-familiar spot in the Winner's Circle. Keep your eyes out for more Vortech Supercharged racing action as we continue on through 2020!
