UPR Products has been attending the Atlanta Ford races for the last 25 years, and with the sale of Atlanta dragway to a real estate developer, this would be our farewell NMRA event at yet another legendary racing facility. A great spectator turnout on Sunday, coupled with nice weather and an incredible job by the NMRA staff, made for a great race UPR racers were out in force. Longtime Georgia UPR racer Tim Matherly won Coyote Stock over fellow UPR racer Nate Stymiest.
Jim LaRocca and Tommy Annunziata took their Whipple-powered Coyote CJ to a semifinal finish in Renegade with 4.60's 2nd time out. Danny Towe and Gary Youngblood had Bracket victories and Jason Henson a Mod Motor runner up.
The highly competitive Limited Street class saw class champion Bill Putnam win his third straight Atlanta event in his UPR Products 94 orange Mustang. UPR racer Samantha Moore had low ET for the class with an 8.31. We had sent her a UPR Pro Series weld-in antiroll bar prior to the event and her car was hooking! Bill's car is a rolling test bed for UPR Pro series suspension components and his recently installed Extreme Lower Torque Box Kit resulted in a 1.18 60' time in the final round.
Bill and suspension tuner Sharad Raldiris are constantly trying and tweaking the latest UPR Pro Series suspension components, and along with feedback from all our great racers, they are keeping UPR Products at the forefront of Mustang suspension parts.
So a big thank you to all our Georgia customers and supporters and hopes that NMRA finds another track nearby for future events.
UPR Products will continue to sponsor and attend the Lights Out and No Mercy DuckX events in Valdosta to service faithful customers. Next stop will be the Outlaw Street Car event at Virginia Motorsports Park April 22-24.
