Pedersen wins 9th National Title at Buena Park "Nats"

Congratulations to Paul "BEUF" Pedersen the 2012 USRA Pro Group 7 National Champion!

Although Petr Krcil of the Czech Republic was the top pro qualifier among the 30 entries with a lap of 1.434 seconds, Beuf ran a virtually flawless 40 minute main to take the win.

This is BEUF's 4th Pro G7 Victory in a row and 9th overall Nats Pro G7 Victory with 1229 Laps! The race was held on the 155' Blue King track at Buena Park Raceway, Buena Park, CA on August 11th 2012.

BEUF dedicated this race & the win to the loving memory of his late Mom, Veta Darling Pedersen.

A bit worn out after an intense week of preparation and racing, the national champion thanked his wife Sherri and his daughters for their support.

Beuf's race and concours winning car was painted by Gil Rivera in Beuf's usual patriotic scheme.

Thanks to Bill Skinner and Stupidfast Racing for their sponsorship of the Pro G7 race. Stupidfast Thunder Rubber was the overwhelming choice of the Pro G7 entries.
