After an interesting 2018 with several trailer flat tires, a blown trailer hub, fuel problems and other hard luck, Team Pantera Racing is returning to the Silver State Classic Challenge (SSCC) with a larger and even more prepared crew.  The trailers have been checked, the cars have been prepped, and they even have enough participants to enter the SSCC Team Challenge.

Dennis "Mad Dawg" Antenucci has managed to round up a new group of Pantera enthusiasts from hitherto unknown parts of the country.  Each member will be taking a seperate and secret route to the race, all converging in Ely Neveda.   In addition, we have some returning members who will again challenge the 90 miles of open road at new speeds.  This may be the year we have a winner of the $10,000 prize purse for the Pantera driver who goes faster than Mad Dawg's 160 mph*.

It's sure to be a fun time.  Some team members will be arriving earlier in the week and making sure the TPR headquarters is set up, clean and ready to go. Stay tuned for more.

*qualifications for winning the $10,000 prize is subject to the whims of Mad Dawg

Greetings Racers,

Hope everyone's well and enjoying this awesome Springtime.  My first official duty has been learning to navigate through this website. Now that I've figured how to post whatever I like, we're in for a lot of fun (trouble) now.

This is of immediate IMPORTANCE! My first obligation is forwarding a reminder from our fearless barking leader, the Dawg (alternate wording selected for the *F word, however).  Here it is:

Even if you have reservations for SEPTEMBER you need to RE-CONFIRM.... yes you heard that right, RECONFIRM your reservation and get a confirmation # because if you are staying at Hotel Nevada they cancelled all the room reservations for some *messed-up reason at the MAY NORC, so ideally do it NOW and re-check again after NORC which is middle of May!

Thanks for listening,

Get ready, get set, GO... it's a grand racing season!!!!

Over and Out,

I am happy to announce that Laurie "Ferrari" Basile is taking the Presidents helm from Bob Radefeld who's done an impecible job as President, encourager and leader of the Central TPR division representing us at the Sandhills Open Road Challenge for more years than I can remember.  Most of you already know Laurie who is the only woman Pantera owner/driver to have ever started and completed an open road race and she has done that twice. Laurie has also published numerous articles in the POCA and Ferrari Owners Club monthly periodicals.

Laurie just wrote to confirm her draft of a new history book about Team Pantera Racing with color photographs, including information on the members and the events.  She expects it to be published shortly. With all her racing, business, community, media, photography and writing skills she will not only be an asset in her new role but will help expand and report what we are and have been doing since 1989.

Laurie can be reached through ou contact form. With Race Season in full swing please send your photographs and stories to Laurie.

Congratulations Laurie!

Also in the news, our webmaster Asa Jay has an expanded community role of late, in addition to a new promotion at work.  This keeps him extremely busy, but will still work to make the SSCC Event in September.  Even so, he still tries to put in a little time for our web site.  If you can help in any way, please send your articles to either Laurie, or Asa.

Your Dawg in Charge,

Mad Dog

Dawg's in the Northwest PDF Print E-mail

The Mad Dog has moved to the Pacific Northwest.  Now residing in a secure location near Portland Oregon, the Pantera driving race fanatic is now recruiting other Pantera owners/drivers into local open track events.  His plan is to mix it up with other Panteras and use the local events as a recruiting tool to get more interest into Open Road Racing.
The lastest decoded communique from the underground bunker follows:
Right now we have 4 Pantera's registered to run at Portland International Raceway Friday, May 3. And we have two more members (Mary Ann Antenucci and Doug Braun) planning to run their 'other' rides which should be just as much fun. 
The link below includes 31 entries to date. 
But of that number there are only 4 vintage automobiles entered and they are All DeTomaso Panteras! Think about that, as it is something we can all be proud of. That example pretty much follows every other open track or open road race event I have participated in up and down the west coast. No club ever shows up to race 3 or more vintage automobiles. It just doesn't happen EXCEPT with owner's of Pantera's.  
So if you miss the link here are those planning to run:
1.    Allen "Dick" Abraham
        1974 Pantera GTS
2.    Matthew Abraham
        1974 Pantera L
3.    Randy Grubb
        1974 Pantera L
4.    Mad Dawg
        1972 Pantera 
5.    Mary Ann Antenucci
        2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio
6.    Doug Braun
        2015 Ford Focus ST
Others I know who are working/wrenching/painting/polishing a Pantera are Lee Peterson, Ron Wade, and Dave Londry. and probably others who are flying under the radar or those I forgot....but honestly when the SoCal boyz can't get more then one Pantera to Willow Springs what you guys have done is again something pretty cool.
And registration is still OPEN so if you think you can still get your Pantera or any other ride ready we would love to have you join us for the fun on that day. I think certain members of our group may have already placed some wagers of which I know nothing about 
But its all about having some fun and enjoying some camaraderie.  And that is exactly what we are going to do.
Everyone else?
Come out and join us. 
Remember - there are two Novice groups (Beginner and Intermediate) and one advanced race group for experienced racers and one other test & tune  group for driver's with a race license. 
Send your questions or comments on the event,directly to me.
Good Times,

Mad Dawg Antenucci
Northwest Pantera's & Team Pantera Racing
