Steve Cox Takes Runner up position at Las Vegas Speedway during 2014 NMCA West Drag Racing Event.

The Hedman Headers Nostalgic Street Car Class lit up the Las Vegas Motor Speedway strip on September 5th – 7th,2014. The competition was stiff and the already blistering blacktop served as excellent proving grounds for the amazing rides of the Hedman class.

After a fierce round of qualifying, the drivers prepped their cars and buckled up for eliminations. Class veterans such as Steve Cox and Mike Nordahl put on an excellent show through the elimination rounds, but it was Jan Vanderpool and his Mustang that would leave Las Vegas victorious with the Wally. The final event of the NMCA West season takes place at Auto Club Dragway in Fontana, CA October 24-26, 2014, and four racers are still in the hunt for Hedman Hedders’ coveted Nostalgia Street Car Class Championship Trophy and Ring.
