GET ON THE GAS!

Kicking things off will be a LMC Truck “No Limits” AutoCross shootout pairing the “Pros” versus the “Joes” from 4-5pm. Non-pro competitors will be given a time reduction (TBD on-site) to have a shot at beating the pro drivers in this unique AutoCross single-elimination shootout.

From there we’ll head over to pit road for a track cruise around Texas Motor Speedway’s 1.5 mile, 20-plus degree banked oval from 5-6pm. To obtain your Friday Night track cruise ticket visit the LMC Truck vendor display booth between 3-5pm on Friday.

Associate Editor

A lifelong car kid, Steven grew up around drag strips – his name may sound familiar because his grandfather is Bob Bunker, a Pro Mod pioneer who piloted the “Folsom Flash” ’55 Chevy from the ’70s through the ’90s. Steven’s father, Bob Bunker Jr., heads up Bunker Motorsports and is a regular in the West Coast racing scene, building chassis and race cars for more than 30 years. With genetics like that, it’s no wonder Steven has a passion for both cars and motorsports. In addition to helping his father and honing his fabrication skills at Bunker Motorsports, Steven began shooting photos at the drag strip and capturing the action with his Canon camera. He is now artfully crafting stories around the awesome machines at the shows, as well as the men and women behind them. When he's is not on the road covering events, he spends his downtime out on the water fishing, building his 1962 Chevy Nova, or cruising his 1987 GMC Suburban.
