It's been a while since Bangin' Bob Hanlon has seen an NMRA victory ceremony. To his credit, it's not like he's been sitting around doing nothing-the man's been busy. He's had his mitts inside the transmission of every other NMRA stick car, and quite frankly, the Hot Street class is probably one of the toughest classes in which to maintain a competitive edge. Bangin' Bob took advantage of Ben Mens' huge wheelie in Round 1; then took a holeshot victory to get past Robbie Blankenship and into the final round against Mad Max Gross. Max is known for instant reaction times, but the Tree would hit back at Max with a redlight start, giving Bob the victory.
