After a grueling week at the SEMA show in Las Vegas, Nevada, the Modified team topped things off with the REDLINE/Modified Magazine Time Attack event at Spring Mountain Motorsports Ranch’s new 4-mile road course in Pahrump. Conveniently located 45 minutes from Las Vegas, the REDLINE/Modified Magazine Time Attack brought out the hardcore road racers that survived the week of SEMA to race another day. With three different classes competing – Street, Modified and Unlimited – and front wheel drive, rear wheel drive and all wheel drive vehicles in each class, the Spring Mountain course was filled with cars of all shapes and sizes - from Preludes to S2000s to RX-7s.
From the all wheel drive camp, Subarus and Evolutions were also terrorizing the track. An S15 represented from Japan, racing in the Unlimited class along with Igor Sushko’s Skyline and Modified’s own Tarzan Yamada in the XS Engineering Skyline. Plenty of everyday racers were present however, getting plenty of lap time thanks to the great organization of the event by the professionals at REDLINE and Spring Mountain Motorsports Ranch.
We would like to thank Hawk and Nitto Tires for sponsoring the event and making it a great success.
