Gainesville, FL, is serious about racers. Even the show cars have a racy look to them as we saw in the blown and tubbed '61 Impala owned by Dale Faulds, Jr., of (how fitting) Daytona Beach. In the Nitro Coupe finals, Gary Irving did it again, defeating Dan Nickelson in the final run. If you're wondering how a guy like Irving can be in so many finals and not take the season crown, it has to do with being able to be at every event. Nickelson not only won often, but he ran every race accumulating points along the way.
