It’s not all work at SEMA Show

Lest you think the SEMA Show attendees spend all day walking the huge convention floor and all night resting their weary tootsies, Dave Wallace Jr. has sent us photos of the SEMA banquet’s entertainment Thursday night. That’s Billy Gibbons, Jimmie Vaughn, and Michael Anthony with Vaughn’s Tilt-A-Whirl band on stage rockin’ the night away.

Spinozzi tests new Doorslammer in Australia

Emilio Spinozzi and his team have finished their first test of a blown Chevelle doorslammer at Sydney Dragway. The ’69 Chevelle body was by McCoy Racecars in the U.S. and the chassis by SCF.


“I was very impressed with how our first test day went, the whole team did an outstanding job and adapted very quickly. Ultimately, after endless hours of hard work it comes down to launching the car and letting it tell us what it wants," explained Emilio. "The second launch did exactly that. It has given the team enough information to go away and build from".


Michael Marriott, Spinozzi Racing's crew chief added, "We appreciate it will be a steep learning curve. Emilio did an incredible job driving a total different race car.”


Spinozzi began racing 16 years ago in Super Street and then moved through Super Sedan and Super Stock to Pro Stock before moving to Doorslammer.


The team will do more testing in mid-November.
