Clifton Park, NY – Like most winters, it has been a very busy off season for the Russell Motorsports crew. The team is very proud to announce that a couple of new partners have joined the team for 2017.
We are extremely proud and thankful to say that Cen-Pe-Co Lubricants and NGK Spark Plugs have come on board for 2017 as official product sponsors for both the 360 CI Sprint Car and the Iron Outlaw Nostalgia Funny Car. We look forward to representing both companies at tracks across the Northeast this summer!
2017 Brings Changes for the Iron Outlaw!
In 2017, Russell Motorsports and the Iron Outlaw will graduate to the Supercharged Nostalgia Funny Car Class. After a couple of partial seasons in the injected category, the team felt as though they had accomplished their goal of getting their feet wet and learning how to run the car.
The Iron Outlaw will be available for match race bookings as early as this spring. The first official event on the schedule for 2017 is the 10th Anniversary of the Nostalgia Funny Car Nationals. More to come on that event in the coming days. Click read more to see a few pictures from the event!
Iron Outlaw a part of DMC Wild Weekend in Mahwah NJ
The Iron Outlaw was invited to be a part of the Dead Man's Curve Wild Weekend at the Mahwah Sheraton over Labor Day Weekend! The "Thunder Alley" display, a fixture at this event for many years, featured around a dozen nostalgia race cars this year. Fans got to get up close and personal with front engine top fuel dragsters, gassers, and several beautiful 1970's funny cars. Guests were treated to a night time "cackle fest" on Saturday night with all of the nostalgia cars firing up at once. Russell Motorsports extends thanks to Jeff Bornstein from DMC and the rest of the crew for having us at this great event.

In head to head action, Iron Outlaw went 1-1 against the Temporary Insanity team after a pair of red light starts in round 1. The action in round 2 did not disappoint. The side by side burnouts and dry hops was a trip back in time to 1970's funny car glory!
