After a little weather yesterday we are back in action today with three rounds of qualifying.

“It’s nothing a little duct tape couldn’t fix!” That was the unofficial comment from an unnamed person on the ATF Speed drag racing team. Sean Ashe went for a wild ride one week earlier at an outlaw race and scuffed up the car. The team fixed it, finished runner-up in Outlaw 275, and collected a suitcase full of money in a grudge race after eliminations. A quick run back to the ATF Speed headquarters in Fort Lauderdale, FL was required where Jason Gatlin and his team pulled the car a part in order to inspect all suspension, engine, and drivetrain components. All looked good and they rebuilt and hit the road north to Bowling Green, KY for the NMRA World Finals. We don’t know if a 6.99 is possible in these conditions but if the temperature drops earlier today, it could happen.


Bart-man! Earlier this year perennial Mustang racer Bart Toebner showed up with a turbocharged Modular 5.4L powerplant for Street Outlaw. He built a new coupe to be a versatile racecar designed for multiple categories. After some teething issues with the turbo, he went back to a combination he knows all too well—a Vortech supercharged Edelbrock Renegade combo. He only had to build a new exhaust system, add the aforementioned Vortech blower, and swap in a new set of custom Bullet camshafts for the .520-inch lift limits. An easy test pass yesterday, complete with too much fuel and a stutter at high rpm,netted his new Renegade combination an 8.80 but at a scorching 164 mph. Will he go 170 mph this weekend?


Tremec True Street racer Chris Gish has been trying all season long to be the first racer with a seven-second three-pass average in the class. Twice previously he’s run a seven-second pass in test and tune, and just this morning, he ran a third, carding a 7.864 at 181 miles per hour in the test and tune session. The real question now is, will he be able to do it three times back-to-back in today’s True Street competition.

New. World. Record. The 5.0 Shootout has brought out the baddest Coyote-powered 2011-2014 Mustangs and sitting on top of the heap is Justin Burcham of JPC Racing. He brought the shop's test mule, a single turbocharged combination with a Precision 76mm turbo on board and just the second time out with a freshly installed Powerglide transmission, Burcham lit up the boards with a new world record run for a Coyote street car with an 8.16 at 166 mph! The 3,450 pound street car dropped a stellar 1.19 sixty-foot on Mickey Thompson 275/60-15 Pro Drag Radials.

isnt that depending on the track? ill ask them when they arent running around providing you coverage.



BTW, since weather isnt going to be good at allllll tommorow, they are calling 1st round of eliminations to the lanes now and are running till either the last pair goes down for the finals or rain comes. Either or. This is what ive been hearing. Should be a good night for racing if the weather stays away.

I was pulling for him. that 7sec test pass looked promising for T/S.




And I spoke too soon. Had Street Outlaw come to the lanes and as soon as they were paired up it rained hard for about 15mins. Good news is according to radar, that small cell is passed, and everything else is to the north now. There is no curfew here so they plan on drying and running this tonight to finals. That is the plan as of right now.

Don't think they are gonna get very far in eliminations tonight. Rain probably only an hour or so away. Jason Meador won True Street today. Haven't heard what he averaged. Know he went 8.32 yesterday.

That test pass was smooth and worry free pass. No spin worries or anything..... Just didn't have luck on our side today. Of course Chris hasn't had the best luck this year seems like when it mattered most. Always next year as that 7 sec average is still available for the taking :)
