In his first-ever appearance at the Nitrous Outlet Street Car Super Nationals
Presented by FuelTech, Arkansas native Brad Medlock drove his 2013 Mustang to the top of the ladder
in the Vortech Outlaw 8.5 class Saturday with a pass of 4.593 seconds at 162.22 mph. In Round 1 of
eliminations Saturday night at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, Medlock slowly meandered down
the track thanks to a single-car pass made when his opponent was unable to make the call.
"Come out working pretty good and just switched over to alcohol, trying to keep things under wrap
with that and try not to get too aggressive, too quick," Medlock said. "Especially with the air
change here, it's so much different than what we're used to running. So far, so good."
Rick Hord continued his tear through the Precision Turbo Pro Mod class, beating his already
impressive ET with a pass of 5.587 seconds in the final round of qualifying in his 2016 Corvette.
His hot streak continued after his E1 opponent, Jay Boddie, was also unable to stage with Hord
taking a single-car run to the win light.

Promoter Mel Roth continued his praise of the track staff after another day of a near-perfect
racing surface. "Jeff Foster's crew is amazing," he said. "Year after year, they continue to raise
the bar and I can't thank them or our SCSN staff enough. We have a record car count of 493 this
year and things have gone as smoothly as they have on our end because of these great folks."
