Daryl Jauernig continued his romp as the season’s most dominate competitor by blasting to his sixth win of the year in the Street Car Shootout Series held in conjunction with the NHRA Drags Street Legal Style presented by the American Automobile Association at Gateway International Raceway in Madison, Illinois. Known as “Dirty D” to fans and foes, Jaurnig came from the third qualifying position to clock the event’s quickest elapsed time and fastest speed despite three hundred forty extra pounds strapped to the chassis of his Ford Mustang!
For the third straight week, weather forced the postponement of the Tuesday night program to Thursday. After two weeks of Tuesday rainouts, a forecasted high temperature of one hundred degrees brought into play GIR’s mandate of cancellation when triple-digit temps are predicted. The mercury did, indeed, hit the century mark on Tuesday but the rescheduled race two days later was worth the wait. With temperatures between eighty-four and seventy-one degrees, the corrected elevation ranged from 2125 feet above sea level to 1291 feet during the final rounds and a huge field of cars turned out for a beautiful evening at the track.
Jauernig, the current SCSS championship point leader, drove his nitrous oxide-injected smallblock Ford-powered ’89 Mustang to the lead in the Super Sixteen field during the second qualifying session. However, his Mustang Muscle/Matheis Race Cars entry was strapped with three hundred forty extra pounds of ballast in preparation for an event in Springfield, Missouri, at which the Mustang was required to meet a weight minimum. After a strong 1.28-second elapsed time in the first sixty feet, Jauernig covered the eighth-mile at 5.45 seconds and 129.29 miles per hour before coasting across the quarter-mile finish line with an 8.91 at only 122.79 mph.
That pass held for the lead until the last fifteen minutes of the final qualifying session when every “hitter” made an attempt to qualify. Tim Mallicoat, Jr., who won his first SCSS title one week earlier, took the three-time season championship-winning M&M Automotive/Dale Huff Motorsports “Hellraiser” naturally-aspirated ‘68 Camaro to a 1.25 “sixty” and a stout 8.56/157.74 to knock Jauernig out of the lead. Next came Philip Reichardt, the five-time SCSS finalist whose nitrous-aided 400 cubic inch ‘67 Camaro has for three seasons reigned as the series’ quickest and fastest smallblock Chevy. Most recently seen at the helm of a ten-second smallblock Ford-powered ‘88 Mustang on May 4th, Reichardt returned with his infamous blue Camaro and blasted to a phenomenal 8.40 at 161.85 mph, (and a 5.38/129.94 eighth-mile), to reset his own SCSS personal bests by three tenths of a second and three miles per hour! A second smallblock Chevy entry also made big news; the Matheis Race Cars -backed 434-inch smallblock white ’84 Monte Carlo of thirty-year GIR veteran ”South County Dave” Reich and pilot Eric Luig screamed to a best-ever 5.89/118.43 eighth-mile and a great 9.21/147.62 to squeeze into the fourth spot. At the very end of the qualifying session, Jauernig made another attempt but, after an improved 1.25 “sixty” and an 5.46/129.35 eighth, shut off early to a 9.00/119.96 to remain third in the field.
Even after the four top qualifiers reported in front of the main grandstands for the opening round of eliminations, Jauernig and crewchief Joe “Mongoose” Voelkel remained tight-lipped about the aborted passes and, paired with the impressive Chevy of Reichardt in the opening match of the semi-finals, hardly seemed the favorite. When the two staged up, however, the Phine Designs/AMT Racing Engines Camaro fried its tires instantly as Jauernig launched to an amazing 1.21-second “sixty”! The black Mustang again shut down before the finish line but, this time, it recorded an 8.39 at only 154.37 mph! Mallicoat hit a 1.24 “sixty” of his own after taking a holeshot of five hundredths against Luig and charged to an 8.64/157.04 win. Luig and Reich displayed amazing consistency on a run with only one thousandth of a second and two hundredths of a mile-per-hour variance from their qualifying effort, running another 9.21 at 147.60 mph.
Tim “Moose” Mallicoat fixed the electrical problems which plagued his 565-inch Camaro during the previous week and was also experimenting with a large air cleaner from K&N Filters which precluded the use of the Chevy’s hood. “Because the air’s so much better tonight, it’s hard to tell how much the filter is helping until we crunch the numbers”, noted Mallicoat before the final round, “but, so far, it sure doesn’t seem to be slowing it down”. Mallicoat’s Chevy returned to its qualifying pace in the championship dash but another 8.56/157.87 was no match for Jauernig’s first full-throttle pass of the event, a blistering 8.36 at 162.84 mph to secure his sixth victory in thirteen completed events! During trophy presentations in front of the main grandstand, Jauernig admitted to the extra weight in the car and indicated he was experimenting a bit, too. “We added the weight for the race this weekend and we weren’t sure how the car would react”, said Jauernig, “but we were also testing some new multi-adjustable shocks that (crewchief Joe) Voelkel has been bugging me to use. I didn’t want to hurt the car in the early rounds and, as quick as the field was, I wasn’t even sure those shut-off runs would stay in the top four. We really had to run it hard against Reichardt and Moose; we didn’t have much of a choice. Still, that 8.36 on 315 series radials is within six hundredths of my best pass on slicks and, with that 1.21 ’sixty’ we had, I think we have the car pretty sorted out right now!”.

Dan Harris earned his tenth victory in a record-setting twentieth career final round en route to his fourth title of the season in the St. Louis Street Racing.com Sport Tuner Showdown. Despite the fact he is now only one win away from tying all-time STSS winner Adam Corbitt, the Mustang pilot’s latest win may have been his most frustrating ever.
SCSS Four-Cylinder Record Holder Jon Huber and his always-astounding turbocharged 178-cubic inch silver ’79 Mustang from his Huber Performance emporium actually led qualifying but still struggled with problems while clocking a best of 10.14/134.08. Harris took his familiar red 2004 Mustang to the second qualifying berth when the nitrous oxide-injected 232-inch V6-powered Ford charged to a 12.05 at a best-ever 115.08 mph speed. Huber elected not to compete in eliminations and longtime STSS racer Robert Baldwin’s lime green ‘69 Volkswagen Beetle, (13.25/105.05), made the final round match as the first alternate.
Baldwin, who often shares driving chores with his father, Bob, had never appeared in an STSS championship round despite years of racing in the series. The family’s turbocharged 2.4-liter VW had occasionally dipped into the twelve-second zone but always fell short of the STSS bump spot. The Bug’s qualifying efforts were punctuated by fuel delivery problems and Harris seemed destined to win yet another title but the Baldwins admitted they may have solved their fuel dilemma before the final round. “I think we really have it fixed this time”, said Bob, “and, if it runs the way it should, it’ll give the Mustang a race!”. Meanwhile, Harris was excited by the Memory Lane Customizing and Fabrication/Pur Performance Mustang’s performance and knew conditions were conducive to exceeding his best-ever 12.01 elapsed time and, just maybe, collecting a long sought-after eleven-second timeslip.
In the trophy dash, the Volkswagen launched without bogging and charged to a career-best 12.31/109.02 but Harris, who grabbed a huge holeshot, thundered to a winning…and simultaneously heartbreaking…12.00 at another 115.08 mph speed! “I can’t believe it!”, said an exasperated Harris in the winner’s circle. “If I had just taken off my belt or something, it would’ve gone in the elevens on that pass! All I needed was nine lousy thousandths of a second and it would’ve done it. It was so close…but what are you gonna do?”.

Ray Arthur’s up-and-down 2010 season has been difficult but the Edwardsville, Illinois, racer managed to pull victory from another tough scenario by winning his second title of the year in the St. Louis Drag Racing.com Super Truck Showdown. Currently holding second place in the SCSS season point standings, Arthur had already earned two SCSS victories in March but incessant problems with his nitrous oxide-injected 555 cubic-inch ”Suspicion” ’67 Camaro have forced him to utilize his equally-quick “S-10 Revenge” smallblock-powered pickup when the Camaro is being repaired.
On May 4th, Arthur’s R&R Towing ‘93 S-10 blasted to an 8.90 at over 146 mph to become the second quickest truck in series history behind record holder Kevin Autenrieth’s orange S-10. However, Arthur’s main goal is simply to continue qualifying for the Super Sixteen field to earn points toward the season championship and, if his gorgeous S-10 qualifies for the Super Truck battle, so be it.
“The Camaro burned several bearings last week”, said Arthur after leading the Super Truck qualifying standings with a strong 9.86/143.78, “and I had just fixed the truck after it destroyed the transmission a few weeks ago. I hate to keep jumping between the two but I’m lucky to have a back-up after what I’ve gone through this year. The S-10 probably won’t win an SCSS race but it’ll make the top sixteen and get me points each week. Plus, I get to run in the Super Truck Showdown which is really why I built it, anyway!”. Behind Arthur was Andy Rhodes and his 406-inch nitrous-injected ‘82 S-10 with a 10.53/129.85 bumping Jimmy Price’s 464-inch Buick-powered ‘84 El Camino which struggled with tuning problems throughout qualifying.
Rhodes, who has earned more Super Truck titles than anyone in 2010, was loaded for bear in the title bout and clocked a 10.35/130.53 but Arthur’s “juiced” S-10 charged to a great 9.37/144.46 for the win. “My year started out the best it ever has”, said Arthur during trophy presentations, “and I’ve had some problems along the way but I’ll keep racing whatever I can find to stay in the hunt. I only do this because I love it, you know!”.
