Ron Green is debuting a new car as well this weekend. The twin turbo charged 2000 Firebird was built at Sheppard Race Cars with an engine by Billy Albert Racing Engines out of Virginia. Hank Hill is on hand tuning the chassis while the power is being managed by none other than Brad Brand who is also driving the car today. Ron did some easy runs during yesterdays testing.



Jimmy Bradshaw is here from Orlando debuting his blown 526 Hemi Dart which we had written about previously http://www.dragzine.com/race-coverage/pro-streetpro-mod/following-devastating-setback-bradshaw-on-verge-of-pro-modified-debut/ here at Dragzine.
