Alex Rogeo went four rounds in a tough field in the non-electronics class at SCSN Las Vegas. A record car count, over 500 cars, meant long days in the cool weather. But the weather also helped Alex set a new fastest time of 10.25 seconds at 130 MPH in her Liquid Glow MAHLE Arrington Dodge Magnum.
Alex Rogeo used a borrowed 2015 Volkswagen Jetta to earn enough round wins in the PSCA unlimited electronics Bracket-1 class to clinch her third place finish in the 2015 championship. Alex’s Liquid Glow MAHLE Arrington Dodge Magnum suffered a mechanical failure in the first round of practice on Friday that could not be repaired in time for the race on Sunday.

Alex Rogeo raced her Liquid Glow MAHLE Arrington Dodge Magnum to runner up in the Premier Street Car Association Magnafuel West Coast Shootout presented by Mickey Thompson Tires at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway on Sunday.

Hot rodding is all about expressing your creativity and passion. Some people like to create vehicles with wild powertrains that attempt to increase the rotational speed of the earth every time they hit the gas, while some take a more artistic approach and use a car as a rolling canvas to create things never before seen. Famous car customizer Geroge Barris was one of the first to create these wildly modified and styled vehicles back in the 1950s and ’60s. Today, Gary “Chopit” Fioto of Chopit Kustoms is keeping this tradition alive with his wild, one-off creations like the Beatnik Bubbletop. Read the rest of this entry →
