LAKESIDE, Calif. -- Southern California Super Street Association newcomer Jeff Lindstrom knows how to make a statement: Not only did he win the series Rookie of the Year honor, but also earned the series 2013 championship along with it.
John Sapone, the president of the series, finished second in the championship standings as he drove his El Camino to two victories and the runner-up spot in the Super Street Shootout. Sapone won the series second event, held at Bakersfield, and race three in early September at Barona. Rounding out the top five finisher was Scotty Gearhart, John Castro, and Brian Mendenall.
Sid's Auto Body sponsored race four, where Scotty Gearhart took the top qualifying honor for that race. Lindstrom opened the semifinals with a .002 light to Mendenhall's .004 red-bulb, while Kevin Houmard's blown Camaro stopped the T-Bird of Boner. In the final, Lindstrom was .008 off the index, with Houmard settling for the runner-up honor.
Brian Mendenhall had the best qualifying number for the final race of the season, .003 off the 6.90 1/8 mile index. Dennis Blehm went to his first final of the year when he beat Sapone in the semifinals, and Lindstrom got a bye into the final with his Mustang. Lindstrom banner season ended with a victory over Blehm, as he red-lighted his chances away in the final round. RPM Racing sponsored the event.
Series sponsors for the Super Street Association include Denso Products, Sid's Auto Body, RPM Racing, and Tim & Donna Daniel.
