Rust Bucket Outlasts WFA Field In Tucson
Tucson, AZ (May 7, 2016) -
The Western Fuel Altereds, presented by Torco Racing Oils, headlined the 2016 Tucson Dragway Reunion at Tucson Dragway. New track owner Jim Hughes and the Standard 1320 internet group continued this annual tradition of treating fans to a steady diet of cackle cars, old and new cars making test and tune runs and the Fuel Altereds.
The WFA program featured a 12-car field running a “Modified” Chicago-style Shootout with one qualifying round, a round of competition based on the qualifying ladder and then the quickest two winners advancing to the final round.
