The Hamstras and McCoys are Becoming Fast Friends


Washington, Mo. (November 20, 2010) - The Hatfields and the McCoys were famous for a feud, while the Hamstras and the McCoys are becoming famous for a fast race car. With less than 10 runs down the track and no test sessions under his belt, Jason Hamstra has already piloted his Andy McCoy Race Cars’ Duster to multiple 3.75-second runs at a top speed of 206 mph in the National Guard ADRL Pro Extreme series.

All signs indicate there will be no hard feelings between these families. “Andy and his dad, Stan and Scott, who works there, and his mom Linda – I’ve never dealt with such nice people before and I won’t go anywhere else,” says Jason’s father and crew chief Kevin Hamstra. “They’ve got me hooked.” It doesn’t hurt they build top-quality race cars, either.

McCoy teams up with Hamstra Racing

One of the most highly anticipated new cars of the 2010 ADRL season will be sporting a drastically different look

In March, Pro Nitrous star Thomas Myers proudly debuted a brand-new, Andy McCoy Race Cars-built ’70 Duster—the first of its kind—at the ADRL season opener in Houston. Next weekend at Rockingham Dragway, however, the classic Mopar will have a huge screw-blown Pro Extreme Hemi protruding through the hood where its scoop once stood.

Radical changes continue in the cockpit, too, as last season’s ADRL Rookie of the Year Jason Hamstra will be behind the wheel for the remainder of the 2010 schedule after crashing his Garret Race Cars built ’69 Camaro a couple of months back at Topeka. Hamstra has teamed up with Andy McCoy Race Cars to campaign their 1970 Plymouth Duster at Rockingham and for the remainder of the season.
Close, but no Wally for Scott Ray at Concord

9/20/10 - Close, but no Wally for Scott Ray at Concord - Scott Ray made it to the trophy round at the O'Reilly Auto Parts Nationals but was unable to make the call against Melanie Troxel in the finals. "It was a big disappointment but we still had a great weekend" said Scott. "We got a break in the first round when the Jegs car had problems, then Von Smith and I had a pedal contest on the hot track in the second round. We had Mike Janis in the third round and knew he would be tough so dad had it really hopped up. The car was making one of the fastest laps of the weekend when I saw some smoke and fire at about 1000 feet, but I didn't see Mike so I had to stay with it to the finish line. The engine pushed out a head gasket and burnt the head and block"
Thomas Myers starting to get a handle on Andy McCoy’s New Duster

Washington, Mo. (May 29, 2010) - His nickname may be Tom Slick but Thomas Myers is starting to get a firm grasp on the Andy McCoy Race Cars’ Duster he has been hired to drive. Myers and McCoy have teamed up with McCoy supplying the chassis and Myers the engine and drivetrain.

The veteran driver has less than 10 runs down the track in the nitrous-injected car and has already made a 4.05-second pass. He believes he can go a lot quicker after he gets some motor problems straightened out.

“Like every new car, you just have to find out what it wants,” Myers says. “It’s responding to every touch we make on it. Andy’s got the chassis working really good.”
