Paul Mouhayet set a new personal best at the Street Car Super Nationals at the The Strip in Las Vegas this past weekend.
Battling electrical problems all four days, Mouhayet still managed a personal best with a 5.565 at 267.69 mph to top Outlaw Pro Mod qualifying.
A tyre shaking solo 5.724 at 271.52 mph in Round 1 set up a meeting with Andrew Berry in the semis. Unfortunately it ended disappointingly with a 6.288 at 174.44 mph to Berry’s 5.993 at 247.66 mph.
In an update posted to Facebook Mouhayet said:
“Vegas SCSN is over. We PB’d but had to work hard for it. Had an electrical problems for 4 days straight.
“We lost our MPH record to Team mate Troy Coughlin. At least it’s a PLR turbo car!!
