The dust is finally settling. If you were there, you know what I'm talking about... and if you weren't there, you have no doubt already heard-and/or-read about what a stellar event this year's HAMB Drag Nationals was. We YAY-HOOs knew this would be a big year for The Cup. This is the 5th year that we have awarded The YAY-HOO Cup to the quickest car driven to the event, but beyond that was the tangible tension created by the fact that our two previous champs... legends with two wins each under their respective belts... were both out of the running this year. Jeff 'FLAMEDABONE' Yocum was arriving in a rental ride, and Jason 'DASCHAEFER' Schaefer's Chicken Coupe had bottom end issues. Thus, the field on race day was truly wide open. Who was gonna be winner number five and Champ number three? The folks that decided to occupy the aforementioned wide open field were as follows, and they all rule. Thanks for being Cup Contenders! 'ORGANGRINDER' Reggie Robin 'RAVEN' Harvey Mike 'RUSSCO' Russell Jason 'JHO' Holland Cheryl 'PRINCESS CHERYL' Kaiser Bob 'BOBK' Klessig Aaron 'PRIMER31' Leeper Tom 'TOMT' Trovato Nick 'MALCOLM' Hoesing Mike 'BULLETPROOF1' Cox When all was said and done, however, the 2013 YAY-HOO Cup Champion was Mike Cox in his killer big block Henry J. Mike literally finished building this beast, dropped it off the jack, hopped in, and drove it from the south side of Tulsa to the event. The trip to the drags was the shake-down run... in a big way... and we dig that. Mike's winning pass was an impressive 10.95 @ 119... awesome. I'll let Mike fill you guys in on the details of the car, the build, and the drive from Tulsa... and I know he hinted that a full build thread might be in the works. In the meantime, the YAY-HOOs wanna say a big 'CONGRATS!' to Mike on his win!! He rules.
