Street Machine of the Year Autocross Results from Columbus!

The 2009 Goodguys/Air Ride Technologies Street Machine of the Year Competition heated up in a big way this afternoon here at the Goodguys 12th PPG Nationals in Columbus. A total of 31 vehicles entered this year’s competition which saw the debut of several new cars including the Roadster Shop-built ’62 Corvette of Barry Bloomquist, two cars from Roger Burman’s “Lakeside Rods & Rides” shop (’67 Camaro and ’65 Mustang), a new ’69 Camaro for Nathan Powell built by Alan Johnson, a radical ’71 Jaguar XKE from Posies, Devan Glissmeyer’s ’68 Mustang built by Kindig Design and many others. Tomorrow the cars will be displayed in the “Builder’s Choice” arena from 8am to 2pm followed by the announcement of the top 5 award finalists. The winner of the 2009 Goodguys/Air Ride Technologies Street Machine of the Year will be announced here tomorrow evening at the awards reception which begins at 5:30pm inside the Celeste Building.

The showman of today’s autocross was Roger Burman when he launched the ’67 Camaro with a vigorous burnout then spun the car completely on one of the corners doing a full throttle tire smoking donut. The crowds went wild!

The fastest lap of the day was logged by Bloomquist’s ’62 Corvette which posted a 32.222 with Phil Gerber of the Roadster Shop doing the driving. Gerber and Detroit Speed’s Kyle Tucker were locked in battle to see who could post top time. Tucker was driving a fresh ’69 Camaro for customer Jason Stanola.
