Last year, the “Heart of Oregon Wine Country,” McMinnville, Oregon was host to the very first Oregon Airstrip Attack. The event was a hit, and couldn’t have gone better. The bar was set. The quality of cars left us speechless and we’ve been biting at the bit to see what this year had to offer. Everyone was looking forward to it being bigger and better than the last.
BIGGER, STRONGER, LOUDER, FASTER. 6,500 feet above sea level, two days, two runways and speeds exceeding 225 mph. Records will be broken, engines will be blown, idols will be immortalized and international fame will be achieved. This is how thousands of spectators, hundreds of drivers and dozens of sponsors and media outlets will describe what takes place at the 2016 OB Prestige Auto Pikes Peak Airstrip Attack at the Colorado Springs Airport. Once again, this event will go down in history as the largest event of its kind in the world.
Welcome to the official Team Revvolution coverage of the 2015 SEMA (Specialty Equipment Manufacturer’s Association) Show in Sin City, Las Vegas, Nevada! The SEMA Show is a yearly industry-only event bringing together the brightest minds, hottest products and most progressive builds under the 3.2 million square-foot roof of the Las Vegas Convention Center.
There’s a new Rip City in Oregon, and it’s not Portland. The charismatic town of McMinnville was the host of the very first OB Prestige Auto and English Racing Oregon Airstrip Attack presented by Revvolution.com and Shift-S3ctor.
The roll races competition is really what this event is all about. The high-level competition pits competitors against each other, taking them off the streets and putting them in a safe environment where they can really show what their machines are worth. It’s put so much more into perspective. It’s not just about how many horses come pumping out, but also about the strategy, the shifts, putting the rubber to the pavement, gearing ratios and having the cajones to hang it all out on the line for that one glory pull. This is what it’s all about. We’re not trying to diminish the importance of record-enabling trap speeds, but this is toe-to-toe competition and what many of our competitors come out for!
