Ross is a contender in the Outlaw Class after his win at the PSCA Labor Day Nationals. The Orange County California resident then set the pace with another number one qualifier at a heated West Coast Shootout in Fontana, California. Ross had a blistering 6.874 at 200.92 mph.

“Track conditions were tough at Fontana,” said Ross. “Track temperatures reached a sizzling 135 degrees and the competition was fierce. Almost all of the racers who competed at this event ran at over 200 mph.”

In the Outlaw 10.5 series racers run a 10 1/2 inch wide tire instead of a 15 to 17 inch wide tire. Competitors can also run any fuel combination they choose. “We call our series the world’s fastest cars on ten inch tires,” said Ross. “It’s all about having the proper tuning. The fans love to watch and the racing is simple. The first one to the finish line wins.”

K&N is an official class championship and contingency sponsor in the 2009 Pacific Street Car Association. In addition to being a PSCA sponsor, K&N posted contingency cash on K&N oil filters in all classes for each 2009 event. K&N will post $1500.00 in Championship Cash for the PSCA’s Street Challenge Class.

“K&N has worked great on my cars for years,” Ross said. “Now K&N is working great on our grandkids cars. My grandson Brandon Willoughby is only 15, but he’s putting his whole heart into junior dragsters and is the third generation in our family to use K&N products.”

Ross will next race at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway in Nevada on November 20-22.
