NEW CAR SMELL (PART II)
VICTORIA, BC
(September 19) - Team NPP's newest race car is just weeks away from completion.  Alien Race Cars, based in Victoria, British Columbia, is building Darrell Midgley's brand new pavement Super Late Model.  "We got the chassis back last week (from the powder coaters)," exclaims Alien Race Cars owner Ted Zerbin, "we are now in the process of re-assembling the car."


BRAND NEW SLM TAKING SHAPE AT ALIEN RACE CARS

This brand new race car replaces a near decade-old Super Late Model. "I had a close look at the car on the weekend," says Sidney, BC's Darrell Midgley, "it's coming together nicely."  The brand new Northern Provincial Pipelines/Alien Race Cars #81 Dodge will be run on a Hamke chassis.  "Talking with a lot of people we've raced against over the years they say this is the way to go."  Hamke Race Cars is based in Moorseville, North Carolina and is said to be one of the most successful racing business in North America.


DECADE OLD DODGE WILL BE A BACK UP CAR

"Our old car is still a good car but this new car will compete against anything thats out there today." Midgley has two top-ten finishes this season in the 10 year old #81 Dodge.  When completed, finding a place to test a brand new Super Late Model will not be a problem.  Midgley is president of Western Speedway on Vancouver Island. "We'll probably put down about 30 laps here to make sure there are no leaks.  After that, we'll secure the car in the hauler and get ready to head down to Vegas." 


DIGITAL DASH REPLACES ANALOG GAUGES

Midgley is already entered into the two-day Senators Cup Super Late Model race on October 20th and 21st at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.  After the Las Vegas event, Midgley and team head to Tucson Speedway for a one night race on October 28th.  Team NPP will set up a makeshift base camp in Tucson, Arizona in order to attend several SLM race events during the winter months.
