Where we are going
We have our new engine in the car, and ran a 9.86 in Bowling Green Kentucky. We are getting our car ready to run August 31 - September 5, 2011 in Indianalpolis Indiana.
How we got where we are
We worked long days and hard hours to get our Challenger ready for the 2010 season. And as a 6.1 Hemi, we were one of the first 10 Dodge Challenger Drag Paks to hit the drag strip in an NHRA sanctioned event. We had issues with our first two engines, both 6.1 hemi's whose bottom ends were not built by us, and failed. So we then became the first Challenger Drag Pak to the track with a 5.7 Hemi completely built in our shop. This engine ran a world record time of 10.59, but was disqualified for being 3 pounds underweight.We have since redone that engine, and yet another full race 5.7 engine we will debut in Columbus.
Where we have been
We trailered the car out to the Nationals in Las Vegas, and got there too late to enter due to trailer issues. We were rained out at the Indy Divisional, but ran in Altanta, Norwalk Ohio, and back to Indy for the rain make up. We then were back at Norwalk, wnet to the Mile High Nationals in Denver, where we won teh "Best Apprearing car" award. Then back to Indianapolis for the Nationals there.
So far, we have won Best Appearing Car, We have won B/SA, A/SA, and Stock eliminator at a District event in Noble Oklahoma. We were Top Stock Qualifier in five events at a row, and the first seven of ten events
The car has a name ....It is the Mega Maniac!
Our New driver
We now have a two time world champion who is slated to drive at all NHRA events. Halfway through the 2011 season, Keith Lynch, is rated at about #25 Nationally.We have not yet competed in nearly as many races as many others hav, so we can make up a lot of room, and get Keith up to Number 1 by the end of the year.
