Uncle Joe Benson at work & play at the 2007 NHRA Auto Club Finals.

November 1 - 4, 2007: Under beautiful skies, the Automobile Club of Southern California NHRA Finals in Pomona — the last big drag meet of the year — featured jamming Uncle Joe Meet & Greet sessions Saturday and Sunday mornings. 2004 NHRA Division 7 Super Gas Champ Randy Balough raced the Uncle Joe's Racing Super Gas Corvette the Final Round of the race, finishing the season in the National Top 10 and #4 in the West Coast Division 7! On top of that, Unc gave away another Harley Davidson Sunday afternoon — a rockin' time for all!
