This one hour and thirty-five minute video includes footage from the 422 ALL STARS Nostalgia Super Series race held at Maryland International Raceway Budds Creek, Md on August 20-21, 2013.
This is the first race of the 2013 season for the 422 ALL STARS group and they had twenty-six cars of various makes ready to do battle on the historic quarter mile at MIR. It was also billed as “Door Wars” at MIR and a variety of Pro Mod and Outlaw street class cars were on the grounds.
The primary focus of this video was to capture all the activities associated with the 422 ALL STARS and we followed them both in the pits and out on the track during the weekend. We started off by taking a look at the two rounds of Time Trials that set the qualifying ladder. We also include selective driver introductions where they tell us about their cars. After that we followed them all the way through their elimination rounds right down to the final run. We also did interviews with both the winner and runner-up. The racing was very exciting as we saw various match-ups of brand vs. brand. I really enjoyed seeing the Fords, Mercury’s, Dodge’s, Plymouth’s, Pontiac’s and Chevrolet’s beat up on each other during the event. We also had a couple of exciting racing incidents that resulted in some drag racing drama. Luckily no one was hurt and the cars are repairable.
We also captured the final run in the Pro Mod class. Man these cars thunder. Usually the Pro Mods only run an eighth mile but at the Door Wars they ran the full quarter mile.
I also talked to 422 ALL STARS Series Coordinator Rich LaMont and he filled us in on what they do with the Series. These guys are very serious about what they do and it is a very professional group to say the least. If you have enjoyed our other Nostalgia Super Stock videos I am sure you will enjoy this one as well. Factory Super Stock Style Racing At Its Best.
