Uncle Joe Benson rocks at the 2010 NHRA Finals.

November 11 - 15, 2010: The last big drag meet of the year and the final round of the Full Throttle Series Countdown to the Championship — it was the Automobile Club of Southern California NHRA Finals in Pomona! There were the really fun Uncle Joe Meet & Greets with the KLOS Cool Patrol, and Unc will gave away another bitchin' Harley Davidson Street Bob. But the biggest deal of all was Randy Balough winning the Super Gas Finals in his Uncle Joe's Super Gas Corvette!
