Arizona Nitro Jam Lights Up the Southern Sky

2013 NitroJam-TucsonAZ-3-23-2012 164

Tucson, ARIZ. (March 23, 2013) — IHRA’s Nitro Jam lit up the sky Saturday night at Southwest International Raceway in Tucson as nitro burning beasts made runs down the quarter mile.

Exhibition runs by jet powered trucks and dragsters impressed the crowds as much as Ed Jones and his wheel standing Jelly Belly Candyland stage coach did.  Ed ran down the track on two wheels, putting down a 12.631 at 106.04 mph.

Top Fuel Dragster driver Bruce Litton put his dragster on the line against Curt Eierdam’s jet powered dragster.  Littleton blasted by Eirdam at the top of the track, running a 5.007 at 246.35 mph against the jet’s 5.734 at 280.66 mph.  Les Shockley ran an impressive 7.982 at 201.34 with the Super Shockwave jet powered truck.

Jason Rupert took the win in Prostalgia Nitro Funny Car with the Black Plague after Steven Densham went red by .366.  Rupert went 12.704 at 74.04 mph against Densham’s more impressive, but losing 5.950 at 240.17 mph.

In Nostalgia Fuel Altered it was Kyle Hough crossing the finish line first in the final round against Mike Hilsabeck.  Hough ran a 6.829 at 198.52 mph against Hilsabeck’s 7.081 at 160.21 mph.

The No Box ET Finals paired John Nacis with Bruce Stone at the line.  Nacis took the win by running a  11.292 at 97.76 mph.

In the Box ET Finals, Howard Gerstel and Luis Martin Salido met at the tree.  When the tree dropped Salido cut a perfect .000 light against Gerstel’s .046, but broke out when he ran a 10.220 on a 10.23 dial.  Gerstel ran a 9.580 at 138.26 on  a 9.56 dial.

Grant Jones took the win in Jr. Dragster.
