Calvert Racing PSCA Nor-Cal Nationals moved to The Strip;

July 30-31 event renamed Calvert Racing PSCA Summer Nationals


(Original post: June 13, 2004) -- Due to scheduling conflicts with the original host facility, Pacific Street Car Association (PSCA) and Las Vegas Motor Speedway officials moved the Calvert Racing PSCA Nor-Cal Nationals to The Strip at LVMS.  The July 30-31 nighttime event now will be known as the Calvert Racing PSCA Summer Nationals.

¿The PSCA Pro Street Series produces some of the most exciting heads-up action in all of drag racing,¿ said Chris Blair, LVMS¿ senior director of drag racing operations.  ¿Although we already have three PSCA events listed on our 2004 schedule, we couldn¿t pass up the opportunity to provide Las Vegas-area drag-racing fans with another chance to watch the 220 mph Pro Street doorslammers.¿

The Calvert Racing PSCA Summer Nationals will be the second of four PSCA events scheduled at The Strip at LVMS in 2004.  Nearly 200 racers from 10 states participated in LVMS¿ March PSCA event and huge fields are expected for the upcoming Labor Day Nationals and Mickey Thompson Pro Street World Finals slated for November 19-21.

"The PSCA series has shown tremendous growth in the last two years and has attracted the attention of the national racing media," continued Blair. 'The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway is committed to building this program and we look forward to our expanding our role as the west coast home to the world's fastest race cars."
