And finally, for the vast majority of you between coasts, we have Import Face-off. Equal parts show and drag race extravaganza, with healthy doses of drift exhibition, bikini contest, live music, amateur MMA fighting (the good stuff), and all-around automotive chaos sprinkled throughout, IFO recently did Dallas harder than she'd ever been done before. Elbow room was tighter at Crandall, TX's, Dallas Raceway than in years past, and the drag racing was even tighter. The short story of the Outlaw class is this: Winning with an 8.907@158.69, Kenny Tran and his Jotech tC are officially back. FWD Sportsman classes saw our boy Tony Palo and his 8.7-second DC2 fall victim to staging games by Aaron Lopez and his 9.4-second Civic when, after Tony fully staged in the finals, Aaron sat on one light for a full six seconds, prompting Tony to preempt the drop and redlight the win to Aaron with a -0.31-second reaction time. Shady? Maybe, but this is why drag racing is anyone's game!
