Guam - The Press Conference for the 2011 Smokin' Wheels Racing Weekend took place at the Outrigger Hotel Lobby. Some of this year's competitors were present answering questions from fans and media personnel. Guam's JQ Quichocho, Shane Vizenor and Leo Kuether were on hand talking about their upcoming Tuff Rig Challenge.

Also in attendance was Henry Simpson, talking about the new Asphalt Track catered to Guam's Drag Racers, Drifters and Stock Car enthusiasts. He said, "It's a quarter-mile track and we actually designed it first, to be a dirt track but it was so difficult to keep our red clay in there that we decided to go to the asphalt track. We surfaced it with the reconstituted asphalt and redone. It really didn't work out real well for us so this year we resurfaced it with fresh asphalt.

"We have a group of guys that include some of Tommy's drifters and a group of guys starting with mini stocks. We really expect this kind of racing to build up. When we did it over at the old track in Apra Heights at the Jose and Herminia Calvo Property for 30 years we had lots and lots of stock car racing and the guys that were involved in it are all anxious to come back and build cars and get ready and do some more stock car racing."
