As an NMRA racing fan one of my favorite classes to watch is the “10 inch Tire freak show,” formally known as the Super Street Outlaw class. Among some of the baddest small-tire Mustangs that compete in that class, one of the most successfull underdogs with a 450 cubic inch Small Block nitrous combo has been Sam Vincent. With numerous mid/high 7 second passes under his bel,t there’s no doubt that he’s getting it done with such a small tire, but some breaking news came in this week when we learned that Sam was making the switch to drag radials for an upcoming race in Georgia.

Sam relayed this info to Justin Pennington who made a Yellowbullet post about it.

In hopes of putting in a solid effort towards bringing home the large payout the ORTC race has, ($20,000) Sam has been doing lots of testing. He’s going to be giving the radials a try to see if they’re faster, stating he’s simply going to see what will give him the best chance to win the big race. The ORTC race in Georgia won’t be a quarter mile show, (1/8 mile) which may favor the nitrous combinations due to their ability to do a bit better than the turbo and blower cars in the first half of the track. Sam even entertained the idea of possibly participating in other drag radial events if things go well.

While it’s still uncertain if Sam’s car will be wearing radials or slicks, one thing is for sure and that’s that he will be there amongst the best in competition – rumor has it that this may be one of the biggest radial Vs. slick car races of the year, so you won’t want to miss it. Look for Sam’s notchback to put down some impressive times soon, as always we wish him a successful season in the NMRA as well as any other events he partakes in.
