Joe Bucaro did it. He showed us how it’s done. Using his Pro Systems carbureted small block he took home all the marbles at the recent NMCA race at Bradenton Florida. This is the first win for a small block powered car since the rule was written allowing them to enter the class. It was a great finish for our company as both cars in the NPS finals were Pro Systems carbureted. Jim Wideners Big block car was the runner up in his BES (812-576-2371) powered machine (last years champion) and that shows he is still a threat in the class.
Unfortunately moments later, there was a big accident and an even bigger fire from a turbo car accident that halted eliminations for the rest of the classes (to be contested at the upcoming Bowling Green event). The rest of our guys will have to wait until then to see where they finish. But we have racers in multiple final rounds so we await those results. Good luck guys.

Rod Bourke takes the win in the icy Washington waters.
Rod Bourke started 2009 off strong with a win on the APBA circuit. In ice cold water in Olympia Washington the season was kicked off. Rod races his small block Ford powered Ed’s Automotive of Mukilteo, WA (425-355-7268) built powerplant in a boat that races in the APBA National Modified class. They race around a course pulling amazing g-forces that strains the limits of the driver and a carburetors function. Rod uses a specially prepared Pro Systems carburetor to handle these g-forces and was rewarded with a win this past weekend. Cool looking boat ain’t it? Congrats everyone…keep it up!!
