CONFIRMED – Gio Salinas @ IDRC West Coast Nats – PB: 8.69 @ 175 mph
Racer Gio Salinas will be competing at the IDRC West Coast Nationals on April 12. For those familiar with Salinas, he had previously campaigned a turbocharged 1984 Honda CRX with a shot of nitrous oxide. In 2014, he debuted his new racecar, a 1994 Honda Civic hatch. This will be his first time racing at IDRC with this car, which will be powered by a turbocharged B18C engine without the assistance of nitrous oxide injection. Salinas started racing at an early age as a hobby, but as the years passed, his hobby evolved and became his lifestyle. His goal is to continue to get quicker, go faster and hold a spot among the top 10 quickest and fastest FWD cars in America.Salinas would like to recognize his sponsors at JMS Cash Service, Sheepey Built, Ramey Built, M&H Tires, Synchrotech, Arias Pistons, Web Cam Racing Cams and Skunk2 Racing.
