When all was said and done, Mike Nordahl of Rancho Cucamonga, California, and his ’64 Nova were proclaimed King of the RASR True Street Challenge, and we mean that quite literally. Nordahl and his ’box silenced any naysayers, putting in an active day at Friday’s test and tune, handily completed 11 laps on the California Speedway oval, and made the required three back-to-back quarter-mile passes look easy, averaging 10.258 seconds per run. As if that wasn’t enough, Nordahl was also runner-up in the Nitto Tire West Coast Shootout. Plan on seeing a feature on this overachiever in an upcoming issue of CHP.
