The three-day Pacific Street Car Association's (PSCA) K&N Filters Nationals at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway now resides in the record books.  Kelly Bluebaugh of Phoenix topped the Pro Street class with a final-round win over John Mihovetz of Ontario, Calif., but Giuseppe Gentile also caused quite a stir.

With the quarter-mile strip back in its usual excellent form, Gentile's 2008 Mustang doorslammer shattered the PSCA's Pro Street elapsed time (ET) record.  Gentile, of Sun Valley, Calif., bettered the old marks with a pass of 6.297 seconds at 226.05 mph.  The old ET record (6.357 sec.) was set by Mihovetz at Firebird Raceway on Oct. 7, 2007.
