Events and promotions we have participated in to support our sponsors and or dracing racing:
Promo – Graffiti Night for Cappuccino Car Cruisers 08/17/13 in downtown old Folsom. We were joined by some of our great drag racing buddies Jason Evans, his fiancée Angie, Chris, their fantastic D/Gas Henry J. Husband and wife Jason and Annette Bauer and their screaming fast dragster. Thank you guys for taking the time to share your COOL rides and spending time talking with all the folks who I know were thrilled to see these Drag Vehicles. Many smiles from the kids that sat in some of them. You guys ROCK!!!!!! Even as we melted in the heat. Special shout out to Ray and Chris from Cappuccino Cruisers who invite us back for this event and the wonderful work they do for a fantastic cause!
The gangs rides all hanging out

My Valentine hanging out by the fence. I think she was watching the Blacksmith doing old school.
I will say our set up worked out pretty darn cool. Maybe we will get t next year.
The trophy MBA was presented as a pick by Sutter Club as their choice from the show. Can we say we were blown away!
Promo – Casa Roble High School 03/16/13 We quietly pulled into the parking lot early in the morning and pushed the cars out, careful to not wake up the neighborhood. Watching all the beautiful variety of cars, trucks, motorcycles and one big rig pulling in. The place filled up almost faster than “I Dream Of Jeannie” could of blinked her eyes. The gals and guys of the Auto Shop Class put on one well ran event, especially when you consider this was their first Car Show! Look forward to your next one.

12/07/12 Casa Roble High School We were invited to attend the schools Auto Shop Class. Can I say what a GR-RRReat experience it was for Mike “Hot Wheels” Winston and Mean Barbara Jean. We were privileged to work with two of the classes and do hands on with the guys and girls! We took Lowded 67 and the Fire Chicken to the school to share with the class the differences/common between the cars and turn up some horsepower on campus. We hope the class enjoyed the day as much as we did. It was fun to share the importance of the bond of automotive and math with the classes. What a superb group of young minds and a fabulous Teacher!
09/08/12 Folsom Prision Car Show What a great day at the Prision. Such that I was so busy I forgot to take pictures. Great show, great cars, great event.
04/15/12 Petaluma Jubilee Car Show With the "Insurance Crew Chief Jared Soukup". We took two of our racecars out for this event to add with all the beautiful old cars, trucks and motorcycles. A very well organized event!

05/07/11 WyoTech Car Show at their campus in Sacramento These folks sure know how to put on a car/truck show. Organized along with some great smelling BBQ. Hot Wheels had a bumpy ride getting there, got a flat on one of the trailer tire. Fortunately some nice guys hand signaled him going down the freeway. Not much fun to change a flat on a stacker trailer. One tire destroyed...... at least no trailer damage, thanks to those nice guys. Had several of our fellow racers parked with us at the show. That makes it great for the spectators as they have cars to compare to each other.
Hot Wheels Mike and Lowded 67 won "Best Drag Car" at the show. Below they are picture with Chris, one of the MBA Crew.
One really cool trophy the Wyotech folks made

08/28/10 Graffiti Night for Cappuccino Car Cruisers in downtown old Folsom. We were joined by one of our fellow West Coast Pro Gas Racers Kurt who brought his A-Gas car. Was cool to have four of the club's classes present to show the spectators talk about the differences in the indexes and cars.
To end the evening ..... the MBA Racing 1969 Fire Chicken won runner up in Pro Street/ 1/4 Mile Drag class.
05/22/10 FUEL Energy Beverage Free FUEL So who would have thought of the idea of filling the bed of a dually pickup with ice and using it as a portable ice chest???? Our boys! Early this morning we filled it up with lots and lots of ice then headed out to meet the FUEL boys.
The bed of ice for all the FUEL Energy Beverage to be added to.
Now appropriately loaded with FUEL Energy Beverage to make a lot of people happy on there way to the race. :)
The boys definetly had a GR-RRReat idea with the ice in the bed of the truck, way to go!!!
05/08/10 WyoTech Car Show at their campus in Sacramento Beautiful weather with lots of hot cars and trucks, nice way to spend the day. We were able to park with some of our buddies from West Coast Pro Gas, thanks guys :) Several of the WyoTech gentlemen who pit crewed with us at the last race came over and hung out with us. We had the chance to also see their rides. I have nick names for them that they may not be aware of but I have to have a way to remember people. Crawler Chris had his awesome 4 X 4 onsite, some serious work on his ride of which he did, that is a clean truck that can do some hardcore wheeling. Colorado Chris also known as Mile High Mopar had his Super Street truck, very clean, pumped up truck that will be out at the drag strip most likely at the end of this month. Mr. Boise I did see you slide out in your El Camino, was that a 65? AJ - my hat is off to you, GR-RRReat job the school did and I know it takes allot of work behind the scenes to do pull this off of which you were a very large part of.
MBA Racing was honored to receive the "Best Drag Car" award for our 1969 Firebird or as we call her the Fire Chicken. Thank you WyoTech.

Looking forward to future graduations for the other students who have crewed with our MBA Racing Team. Way to go Wyotech!

MBA Racing had the great pleasure of being involved and in the fantastic movie "Car Stories". It is a story about different people and their love for cars. We fit right in there. :) June Bug Films made this wonderful documentary. They won many awards for the movie. We had the pleasure of being invited to attend the premiere of the movie. We also were able to attend a few other film festivals. Kari Nevil the producer is a extremely talented individual and a jewel to work with. We had a BLAST! More information at the attached link and a trailer of the movie. If you are interested in seeing the movie let us know as we can loan you a copy. http://www.junebugfilms.com/ourwork/documentary.html
Apryl and Kari at the movie premiere after party, wahoo we had fun
"Mean Barbara Jean" and her Fire Chicken. Many of the cars from the movie were on display in San Jose, CA for the movie premiere.
Mike “Hot Wheels” Winston autographing Car Stories movie posters..
We had the great pleasure of meeting Ronnie Montrose. He wrote and did the most of the music for the movie. He autographed a guitar for MBA Racing. What a treat for us. “Mean Barbara Jean” has been a fan of Montrose since she was a teenager. She also brought one of her vinyl Montrose records along and he autographed that too. Still tickled about that.
