At the end of 2013, Pete Zak drove to his first national event title in Pomona, and he returned to Auto Club Raceway at Pomona to open 2019 with a second title in Super Gas. In his ’27-T Ford roadster, Zak motored to the winner’s circle with a slowing 10.73 after final-round opponent Evan Kowalski fouled by a slim four-thousandths margin. The semifinal battle between Zak and Mike Wiblishouser was easily one of the best races of the weekend regardless of class with both cars separated by just .0005-second at the finish line stripe.
