And so it’s on to Bakersfield and the California Hot Rod Reunion (Oct. 20-22) to wrap up the 2018 Nostalgia/Heritage season. The initial five-race Good Vibrations UNFC Championship Series was completed last weekend in Spokane with a large crowd watching Bobby Cottrell in the Bucky Austin and Mike O’Brien Camaro once again dominate the field. Cottrell piloted the sleek green Bardahl machine to its fourth UNFC win and posted low elapsed time of every single round culminating with a 5.69 low ET of the weekend in defeating Wally Giavia and the G-Men in the final. In total Cottrell rang up 488 total points to dominate the Good Vibrations Series beating second place finisher Tim Boychuk by over 200 points. When all the smoke had cleared, Good Vibrations and the UNFC handed out over $150,000 in cash and plans are already underway for the 2019 series with race dates to be announced in the near future.
