First 16-Car WCOPMA Field Expected at Sonoma this Weekend

For many years, back to the very beginning of the West Coast Outlaw Pro Mod Association (WCOPMA), everyone on the West Coast has been trying and hoping for a 16-car field to happen.

The wait may finally be over, as announced last week were 18 pre-entered cars for this weekend’s (July 18-20) NHRA Division 7 Drags event at Sonoma Raceway.

A  great list of cars have pre-entered , including those of Andrew Berry, Rod Burbage, Rob Cacioppo, Steve De Young, John Durden, Troy Ferry, Jeremy Hanger, Mike Maggio, Marc Meadors, Rob Moore, Scott Oksas, Ron Piazza, Sean Renteria, Garrett Richards, Rich Roberts, Lee Smith, Justin Wake and Rich Zehring.

The five turbo cars entered (Berry, De Young, Oksas, Piazza & Zehring) will have a special side bounty to aim for by resetting the WCOPMA Turbo ET record (currently held by Oksas at 6.04). A total of $1,300 was collected for a “winner take all” thanks to the following companies: Bunker Race Cars, Hogan’s Racing Manifolds, Precision Turbo & Engine, Pro Line Racing, Racing Media Solutions, www.TurboBullet.com, Turbopunk and ZMOD Performance.

Friday will host two qualifying sessions at 1pm and 5pm. Saturday will host a third qualifying session at 1pm then go into the first round of eliminations at 5pm with 16 cars. On Sunday the final eliminations for the 8 remaining cars will start at 11am and the event winner will be rewarded with an NHRA “Wally” trophy.
