Steven Castanada: 1971 Mazda R100

The 1971 Mazda R100 has been in Steven Castanada's family for over 20 years. "First, it was a street race car," mentions Castanada, "but now I've turned it to a full tube chassis drag car." Castanada and his family builds the R100 because they love the rotary engine. Additionally, they want to prove people wrong, "the rotary (engine) could be reliable!" Castanada's father inspires him to build the R100 and to keep it as a family-owned build and project.
