Uncle Joe Benson at work & play at the 2005 NHRA Auto Club Finals.
November 5 - 6, 2005: The Automobile Club of Southern California NHRA Finals in Pomona was the last big drag race of the year. NHRA Division 7 Super Gas Champ Randy Balough once again raced the Uncle Joe's Racing Super Gas Corvette through four rounds of competition, boding well for next season. J.B. made his traditional appearance on the track P.A. system as the first NHRA Uncle Joe's Meet & Greets with the KLOS Cool Patrol in years stretched past three hours both Saturday and Sunday. That's rock & roll!

Throughout Saturday morning the crowds continued to pick up.
Sunday morning and we're right where we belong —
in the middle of the whole show!
When not working with Unc, Jim Sleeper helped out some
old friends on the Armoured Coatings A/Fuel Dragster team.
