In a joint announcement by Good Vibrations Motorsports’ President Jim Maher and UNFC CEO Bill Doner, the initial series featuring Heritage/Nostalgia funny cars will have a $25,000 prize money payout to the top five finishers at the conclusion of the 2018 season.

“Our involvement with the Heritage type drag racing has steadily grown over the years due largely to the fact that it delivers results. Looking forward to returning to Tucson Dragway which is a hot bed of our racing customers. Also very excited to be a part of the most competitive Nitro Funny Classes in the world” said Maher, owner of Good Vibrations Motorsports.

Doner echoed Maher’s words saying,

“We couldn’t be happier to join forces with a sponsor like Good Vibrations Motorsports

and know the racers who take part in the series will be delighted as well.”

Points will be awarded at each event for qualifying and round wins with a $10,000 cash payout

to the champion at the end of the UNFC season.

The remaining series prize money will be paid out as follows: $6,000 for 2nd, $4,000 for 3rd, $3000 for 4th and $2000 for 5th.

With the March Meet less than six weeks away and the opening event of the five-race 2018 Good Vibrations UNFC Series not far behind (April 13-14 in Tucson), the upcoming season is rapidly taking shape. I will be in Tucson two days next week to meet and formulate scheduling, etc. with Tucson track operator Jim Hughes and right hand man Matt DeYoung.

Once again Ron Hodgson and Oceanus Resources will be hosting a Thursday night (March 1) barbeque in the pits at the Bakersfield March Meet.  All UNFC members and guests are invited..Naturally there’ll be beverages for all and again drawings for various prizes. 

The always excellent Salty’s will do the catering.

As if all of that isn’t enough to kick off the 2018 season, we will unveil our new Good Vibrations UNFC Series shirts and hand out posters with all the details of the upcoming races.  Kevin Stith is busy at this very moment designing the shirts and there’ll be a long deal for all UNFC team members. You won’t want to miss this happening in Bucky Austin’s pit area!

In the next couple of weeks I’ll post the contingent awards for the March Meet.

(the entry form is attached and you’ll note that once again there is a $500 credit

which means car/driver and three crew members will be free).

Here’s more news…Dale Pulde is selling nitro for $1250 per barrel plus shipping.  The shipping cost will be a lot less if you order it delivered as part of the bulk Bakersfield shipment.  Further Pulde is sending out a Material Safety Date Sheet (attached) which will be most helpful if you happened to be stopped for inspection. I’ll have copies of these sheets to hand out at Bakersfield if you don’t print the attached copy. Bill Windham is planning to have his “giant” souvenir trailer at the March Meet as well as all the UNFC races.  He will sell racer t-shirts. Get in touch with him and hammer out the details. 

Rob Reeves is working hard on the Edmonton purse and I’ve also attached a letter he’ll supply to help with racer border crossing.  It works!  More on this later.  His Edmonton prize money will be higher than in the U.S. and there will be no entry fee this year.  Stay tuned!

Spokane County Raceway owner Craig Smith is looking for some used 15 or 16 inch tires for his track prep machine.  Also Smith (who’ll host two of our five UNFC races in 2018) points out that racer rates are available at the three hotels listed on the Spokane county Raceway web site.  Just ask for the special racer rates.  Further, racers are welcome to park at the raceway before the July 4th event and the August 17th race by calling in advance (509) 988-0106.

There will also be parking at Pacific Raceways in the pits prior to the July 6-7 UNFC race.  It’s a easy tow from Spokane to Pacific Raceways (Kent, Wa.) on Thursday July 5th. 

Also attached is a copy of the Good Vibrations UNFC series press release.  Just so everyone knows, the purses for the US races will be universal at $2500 first round, $3500 second, $5000 runner-up and $7500 to win.  Non-qualifiers will be paid $1000.

See you all in Bakersfield!
