The 2012 ARCA season starts this Saturday, 02/18/12, with the Lucas Oil Slick Mist 200 at the Daytona Int’l Speedway. I couldn’t get much better.  Not only do we have Milka Duno and Maryeve Default returning we have Lillian Munter, Sloan Henderson and Alli Owens thrown into the mix. I have documented Milka and Maryeve fairly well over the past year or so. Please, if you haven’t seen those articles and pictures just type their names in the search box. There’s lots of pictures and info on both.

ARCA is stock car racing that is very similar to NASCAR just step or two below.

Lielani Munter

Lielani has been in and out of racing since 2001. She has driven both open wheel and stock cars. I would grade Leilani as an average driver in the ranks of the ARCA level racing. But its her looks and environmental activism, plus the average driving ability that have given Leilani notoriety Her 2012 ride at Daytona is truly unique. Lielian had raised money through donations from other environmentalist to rent a car from Tony Marks Racing. The car is to promote the movie The Cove. The Cove is a award winning documentary film about the killing of dolphins by the Japanese fishing industry.


Sloan Henderson

Sloan has a one race deal with Brian Keselowski’s(as in Brad’s brother) team, K-Automotive Motorsports for the Daytona race. Sloan is a mere 20 years old and has been racing competitively since she was twelve years old. Her resume seems to be good enough that she should get this chance on her driving ability alone but it never hurts to be gorgeous and a good role model.


Alli Owens

Alli is 24 years old and has been driving competitively since she was 12 years old. Allie has raced in various ARCA and NASCAR truck races over the past few years. Allie is scheduled to drive the #1  Andy Belmont Racing Ford for the 2012 ARCA Daytona race. Allie missed most of the 2011 season because of being pregnant and having a baby. Allie’s husband, Paul Chodorawill, will be the team crew chief.

 Milka Duno 

Go To Search Box on home page to find more pictues and info on Milka. Milka will be in the #63 Sheltra Motorsports Ford.

 Maryeve Dufault

Go to Search Box on home page to find more pictures and info on Maryeve. Maryeve’s ride at Tony Marks Racing could be in jeopardy with the arrival of Lielani Munter to the team.

Here we have Britt and Starla having a good time being B.F.F. while posing with Rod Milligan’s E.T. Gear Corvette. I’ve covered two of Rod’s hugely popular Spring Rod Runs. Now I’m featuring his Corvette. He tells me he can’t afford a $100 for an ad on I guess he’s just a good business man. I give him all this publicity and he doesn’t pay a dime.

The O’Reilly’s Winter Nationals at Panoma Ca. kicks off the 2012 NHRA Full Throttle Series this weekend,Feb.9-12. Top Fuel, Funny Car and Pro Stock divisions dominate the series. For the 2012 season the Funny Cars could prove to be the most intersting division. More on that later.


Top FuelAmong the fastest-accelerating machines in the world, 7,000-horsepower Top Fuel dragsters are often referred to as the “kings of the sport,” and with good reason. They are capable of covering a quarter-mile in 4.4 seconds at more than 330 mph. Powered by a supercharged and fuel-injected 500-cubic-inch adaptation of the famed Chrysler Hemi engine, Top Fuel dragsters can burn up to 15 gallons of nitromethane fuel during a single quarter-mile run. Constructed of chromoly steel tubing and carbon-fiber composite, Top Fuel cars are 25 feet long and weigh 2,250 pounds in race-ready trim.

Del Worsham driving the Al-Anabi Top Fuel Dragster was the 2011 Champion. Del has since retired and will be the crew chief for the Al-Anabi Funny Car that will be driven by Alexis DeJoria. The plot thickens in the Funny Car section.


Funny Car — Similar to their Top Fuel counterparts but with a shorter wheelbase and a carbon-fiber body that loosely resembles a production-based automobile, Funny Cars routinely run in the 4.7-second range and are capable of speeds in excess of 330 mph. Funny Cars are powered by the same supercharged and fuel-injected 500-inch engines as Top Fuel dragsters. Funny Cars are also similar to Top Fuel dragsters in that they do not use a transmission but rather transmit power to the huge Goodyear rear slicks through a multistage clutch assembly that is activated by timers.

Matt Hagan driving the DieHard Dodge Charger R/T Funny Car for Don Schumacher Racing was the 2011 Funny Car Champion.

Here’s where things get really fun. For the 2012 season we have Alexis DeJoria, a good driver and daughter of billionaire Paul Michell Hair Co. CEO Paul Dejoria, going againist Courtney Force, daughter of legendary Funny Car driver John Force and sister of former driver Ashley Force, for Rookie of the year award in The Funny Car series. John Force is still an active driver while Ashley has started a family and has retired from driving. Ashley was a very good driver.



I regret to say that R2B2 Racing has cancelled it’s Funny Car teams so as of the writing of this article Melanie Troxel and Leah Pruett do not have rides.


Pro StockOften called “factory hot rods” because of their resemblance to production-based automobiles, Pro Stock cars are some of the most technologically advanced machines in drag racing. Built around a sophisticated tube chassis and four-link rear suspension, Pro Stock cars must conform to precise measurements and weigh no less than 2,350 pounds. Pro Stock engines use two carburetors and spec gasoline and are restricted to a maximum of 500 cubic inches. They can rev to more than 10,500 rpm and make in excess of 1,300 horsepower. A competitive Pro Stock car can run in the 6.6s at more

Jason Line driving the Ken Black Summit Racing Pontiac GXP was the 2011 Pro Stock champion.

Erica Enders is one of the most capable female drivers in any racing venue, drives in the Pro Stock Division. Watch for Erica to be one of the top conteners for the 2012 Pro Stock championship.
