Bruce Hemminger once again sat out the fist couple races of the NMRA season and set out to make up for lost time, and points, the rest of the way. In 2010, he wasn't able to close the gap, and Tim Matherly took home the Nitto ring. For 2011, Bruce was able to make up the difference, and it didn't hurt that Tim Matherly wasn't his usual consistent self all year. Tim was going back and forth between his two cars all year, but Bruce stuck with his familiar '86 coupe, and with consistent low 9-second passes and top qualifiers along the way, he once again took the Real Street championship. With Real Street also going away, Bruce's next move is up in the air. He also crashed his tried-and-true '86 at MIR's Import versus Domestic race at the end of the year. However, you can bet the car will be ready for 2012 wherever he chooses to race.
