This passed weekend found the Webb Family Motorsports team and cars at Castrol Raceway. Both cars sounded and ran fantastic. The Cuda being just a shakedown pass, soft launch, short shifting and a bit of pedalling was a 7.92 @ 171 mph. Scott didn’t miss a beat from being off for the winter and made a stellar pass right out of the box with a 7.30 @ 192 mph. They are now just going to gather all the spare parts and tools needed for the long haul to Palmer, Alaska and pack up for the trip. Again a huge thanks to the team for all their help over the past couple of months. It’s been a trying time, but was well worth it after yesterday.
Also an update from the ASB team from their test weekend. They made 4 passes to get the car dialed in. Last pass was 6.82 sec at 202.52 mph. You can see some of there pictures and some video on Facebook under ASB Race Stuff. Sounds like they are ready to hit the track for the Rocky Mountain Nationals in July.

Webb Family Motorsports update - Car #2 - It Lives!!!! Finally, after many, many, long nights we have fired the Cuda. Everything is good, no leaks. Just a quick clutch pedal adjustment and she is good to hit the track. The body has been primed and ready for the wrap. Both cars will be out this weekend for testing... hoping the weather stays dry. A huge thanks goes out to all our crew for the extra hours getting everything ready. And also thanks to the families for letting the guys be away from home so much. After this weekend, things should return to our usual shop night schedule.
Superbird Racing has been out on the SIR track a few times over the last few weeks and are running great.
Both teams are ready to hit the highway for the long trek to Palmer Alaska on the 26th.
ABS Racing was out at Castol last weekend testing and I hear they made a 6.86 pass.
Flatline Racing is working hard to get their car ready to fire.

It is getting close to race time. All of the crews have been busy getting the cars ready to race.
Twisted Motorsports were out at the track a couple of weekends ago testing the Camaro. They ran a stellar 6.96 at 192mph with a .034 light. Pretty amazing for the first hit.
Superbird Racing is ready for testing.
Webb Family Motorsports are ready to fire the Vette and working hard fabricating the Cuda and working on the body. Hopefully it will be ready to hit the track soon for testing.
The 2015 Schedule is set and has been posted. We are still waiting for confirmation of the race in Grande Prairie.

This weekend we were in Saskatoon at SIR. The weather was brutally cold and the track wasn't much better, but thanks so much to Skippy and crew for the awesome effort to try to get the track to work for us. There just simply was no heat in the track for the VHT to work. All the cars were out and did the usual awesome burnouts. The runs weren't stellar, but the fans loved it and we all got down the track without any damage to the cars or the drivers. Jerry and Brenda Kos unfortunately had severe engine damage on the test pass after a great burnout, but will thrash all week to get to Drayton Valley next weekend.
I am so happy to say we also had long time past member Brent Jones from Montana join us this weekend. It was great racing with Brent again and hope we will have more to come. Jamie Kemp, also a long time past member was also at the track helping out another Montana car. Hopefully we will see Jamie back in a funny car and racing with us again in the near future. It really feels like the IBAA has come full circle. What a great weekend with great friends.
We have to thank the Bodnarchuk's for putting on an amazing spread of food during the race. And, OMG, a special thanks to Baba Bodnarchuk for the most amazing perogy I have ever tasted... I ate enough for 3 people.
As always, the race ended with good food, good drinks and great people.
Next weekend find us all in Drayton Valley, AB.
It's August and it's hot... put those together and you have the annual Hot August Nights race at Castrol Raceway. Come out and see our drivers lay down their side-by-side long smoky burnouts. We run at 7:00 and 9:00. Come to the pits for hero cards and get the drivers signature.
Well after a very long delay I am happy to say.... We're baaaaaack!
We thank you so much for your patience. We will have live updates from each race and ongoing updates about the teams. All are working hard to get their cars fired up to get on the track to do some testing. Unfortunately, our race schedule is shorter this year than expected as we have had a few races cancelled due to track conflicts.
We are really looking forward to the 2014 race season.
