NSCRA Round 1
March 13th, marked the 1st Round of the NSCRA schedule for 2011. Taking place at Palm Beach International Raceway under weather so fantastic it was unbelievable. Hundreds of South Florida tuners, race teams, and spectators came out to enjoy the event.
Vendors from all over lined the grid behind the stands and offered a place for spectators and racers to enjoy food, check out new products, meet some industry partners, meet the drivers, see the cars and of course get your picture taken with the gorgeous girls of Jessica Barton’s Model Lounge. If that is not enough, the girls stripped down to almost nothing for the Hot Body contest.
All in all it was a great day. There was plenty to do and see and the weather was record perfect for South Fl. The NSCRA will be hosting more events in their series at Palm Beach International Raceway with their next one coming up on May 22nd. All I have to say is mark your calendars, tune your motors, and wash your cars because these are events that cannot be missed!
Keep an eye out as well for State of Stance& NSCRA to be collaborating and bring you even more to see and do at future events!
