Tourek, Dream Chaser Win March Meet Title
Dream Chaser and Hughes Performance customer Tom Tourek successfully navigated his way through a stiff 32 car B/Gas field of the NHRA Heritage Series this weekend at the famed Bakersfield March Meet.
The second generation racer out of Surprise, Arizona started the week by qualifying seventh with an 8.620 at 155.61 mph on the 8.60 heads-up index in the nostalgia drag racing series. While competing in only the eleventh race of his career, Tourek was able to capture the coveted Wally with five consecutive round wins.
Fighting his way through the field, Tourek took out B/Gas mainstays Doug Carter and Vic Miller before taking down 2014 March Meet champion and NHRA Super Comp racer Cliff Boyles in the final. The door-handle to door-handle final round was decided by less than a tire on a double break-out effort with Tourek running an 8.592 to Boyles’ 8.577.
Congratulations on the win at Bakersfield’s Famoso Raceway and good luck as you chase the points championship!
