The 2011 Sandhills Open Road Challenge is in the books.  Last years runners Bob "Rowdy" Radefeld and Bud "7-Banger" Hower worked valiantly to get their cars to the race.  Unfortunatley neither of them ran.  Even so, they had convinced another Pantera team to come out.  Mark Skwarek and Jim Wallace.

Bud's new engine wasn't performing quite to his expectations, so rather than chance a blown engine on the way there or on course, Bud decided against running and instead became support for those who did.  Bob took his Pantera there, but at the last minute (or actually the day before), his ignition went south for the summer.  Not being able to repair it in time, Team Pantera Racing was down two Panteras.  At least a third was still in the running.

Mark Skwarek, in his nicely prepared orange and black pantera took on the event and finished 9th in the 110 mph class at +43.496 seconds.  Another good time had in Arnold Nebraska by both Mark and his navigator, Jim Wallace.

A big Thank You from Team Pantera Racing for upholding the team spirit, competing well and having a good time.

Wrapped Pantera

What do you do when you can't wait for the latest round of paint?  Or the paint vendor is backed up and can't get to you for a few months?

You WRAP IT instead!

Team Pantera Racing President Dennis "Mad Dawg" Antenucci recently had a local vendor create a vinyl "wrap" for his Pantera.   The process was painstaking up front, having the guy come out and take measurements on the car.  Then it was a matter of choosing the artwork and text and where to place it all.  Dennis chose to keep everything simple, mainly to keep the car one color.  He also added some information on past Open Road Racers who are no longer with us; a kind of tribute to those who have gone before.

2011 NORC Pre-Race Update PDF Print E-mail

Dennis "Mad Dawg" Antenucci is temporarily back from his desert hijinks and will be running the 2011 Nevada Open Road Challenge in his race prepared street legal DeTomaso Pantera.  He's recently finished up all the prep and tech work, made some local runs to make sure the cobwebs are blown out and is ready to roll.  Although he's not revealed his final speed class, he once again reminded the Pantera world of his long standy $5,000 challenge, with a friendly tuant to our Texas brethren:

Any street licensed Pantera that shows up at the 2011 Nevada Open Road Challenge, Races, -and- obtains a higher average speed than Mad Dawg, will receive as their reward, all expenses paid up to $5,000.  If the driver and Pantera are from Texas, the payout may go as high as $10,000.

To date, none has taken on this challenge.  Will this be the year?

The last thing the Dawg is waiting for, is the new car "wrap" that will be applied to the Pantera this year.  Dennis has decided to forgo paint for now and substitute a full body wrap with tributes to past TPR veterans and those who have died doing what they love.  It should be quite the head-turner, not that the Pantera isn't anyway.


A second Pantera is currently scheduled to make an appearance at this year's NORC as well.  John "JB" Bentley has been preparing his Pantera, truck and trailer for the past few years and is now planning to accompany the TPR President to the event.  John will be running a new rebuilt engine.  In addition he added some NACA ducts and is looking to take on the 135 MPH class.  Like all good Team Pantera Racing members, John has thought ahead and installed Z-rated tires all around.  No worries in tech for him.

 

The Nevada Open Road Challenge begins next week and will encompass a parade, car show, lots of great getogethers, the race on Sunday the 15th and the awards banquet to follow.  Keep your eyes peeled to this space for more information after the race.
