First Compact in Wally Parks NHRA Motorsports Museum

After an introduction by NHRA President Tom Compton, Parks briefly spoke about the pride he had in not only the Museum hosting the ceremony, but in the NHRA’s involvement in the growth of sport compact drag racing itself. Referring to the sport as well as the previous night’s historic induction of Abel Ibarra’s R100 - the first sport compact car to be inducted into the museum, Parks called sport compact drag racing the racing of “tomorrow”.
Abel Ibarra is from PR...

what about this

Abel Ibarra made sport compact drag racing history on Saturday when he clocked the first six-second pass by a rotary-powered vehicle at a sanctioned event.** Ibarra powered his three-rotor K&N Filters Mazda RX-7 to a run of 6.95-seconds at 199-mph during Saturday's second StreetGlow Extreme Rush test-and-tune pass at Texas Motorplex.

"I feel pretty good about it," said Ibarra. "I wish we could have gotten the 200 mph also. This helps out for all the problems we've had. I'm still bummed because we hurt a motor on Saturday and we don't know what the problem is. The six was great, but we need consistency to win races. This is great for Mazda and K&N. I hope we can do the 200-mph on Sunday. I had a hunch it would happen this weekend because the Motorplex has been good to me."
Puerto rico have the fastest rotarys in the US !

My focus is not even a shadow of what it once was...
