Barona Bash Brings Fresh Vibes

(5-6-2009) LAKESIDE, CA – The West Coast Outlaw Pro Mod Association completed its second event of the 2009 season this past weekend at Barona Drag Strip in Lakeside, CA.

Barona Drag Strip is an 1/8-mile track and is the only 1/8-mile event on our 2009 schedule and the first 1/8-mile event in the history of the new association. Myers was one of four racers that showed up for this event, the other racers included Shawn Jones, Jay Diedrich and Rod Burbage.

After the first qualifying session Burbage had captured the top spot with a 4.467 and was followed by Jones, Diedrich then Myers. The 4.467 by Burbage was good enough to keep the number one spot after the second session as well but Diedrich improved which put him in the second spot then Jones and Myers rounded out the field in the three and four spots.

In the first round of eliminations Burbage had some electrical problems which affected his 6-shooter not dumping timing out at the hit so he instantly blew the tires off and Myers cruised down the track for the first round win. In the other pair, Diedrich defeated Jones in the battle of the 1957 Chevy’s.

The final round would pair up Myers against Diedrich and Myers had lane choice.

Diedrich was looking for his first event win after losing against Lee Smith the weekend before at the WCOPMA Funny Car Fever event and he had it hopped up a little too much for the cold track and started dancing around at mid track and wisely lifted. Dan Myers was once again thundering down the 660’ while clocking the second quickest et of the event and taking the event win as well in front of his home town crowd!

Congratulations to Dan Myers on his second West Coast Outlaw Pro Mod Association event win!
