2017 Season Banquet


The Southwest Superchargers 2017 Season Awards Banquet was Saturday night, January 27, and we had a full house of 60 attend for dinner and awards. Dinner was excellent, service was great, and the company for the social hour was fantastic. If you didn't show, you missed a great event.

With the 2018 season shaping up nicely (8-10 races this year, our busiest in several years), it's time to start sending in your SWSC annual membership dues. No change, still $200. Send to Sue or Don, call or e-mail for snail mail addresses.

If you were lucky enough to draw for one of the door prizes from Corrosion Specialties (air tank, compressor, drill bit sets, fuel jugs, etc.), please send a message to Jonathan Parrish @ 432-638-5832, or 432-561-5988 and let him know you appreciate his participation in our racing program. Over the years Corrosion Specialties has donated over $7500 to our banquet door prize system. Thanks, Jonathan!

ATI Jet, Lyle Byrums executive jet contract service, donated a $100 special door prize. Thanks to Lyle for all he does for the SWSC. Also, Good Vibrations/Drag Parts sent us their annual box of handy items for door prizes. They have also stepped up again for 2018 and funded their Quick Light Bonus program for best r.t. of elims at all races . And today we received word Mears Mazda/Volvo Andy Mears will continue his funding a bonus for each winner and runner-up. Our Thanks to Andy and Mears Mazda.

So, watch the website for updates in the 2018 schedule. We are still awaiting word from Roswell, and Prairie Hill Raceway/Axtell, Tx, has said they may have us back late in the season.

It's gonna be a banner year! Looking back at all the SWSC history I can find, this looks like about our 20th season as an organization. I know I said that last year, but I'm close! We raced as Supercharged Gambler for a couple years before we were known as Southwest Superchargers. I've got photos dated 1998 of cars with blowers that didn't have before that date, so...

Let's go racing!

See you there!
