We have been issued Gator tags so I will be making my first trip over there, with Island Hemi's permission of course. RMRE now has a red team car to go with SECRETARIAT and it will be in the stacker. Somebody's parade getting rained on!! Throw in Lil Joe's car lot, D4 looking good. Lloyd would make it better. If Cake shows, we may have a dozen. MATS is same weekend and that's our usual trip but no Quake to calm out there.

My block is in New Jersey, My pistons are in Michigan, and I am working on making a different intake fit & installing a new switch panel. If everything comes together as it should, we plan on leaving for florida on 3/7 or 8. JR

9 eavy hitters will go at it for class eliminations next week at the Gatornationals. Class eliminations (Tim Hebert Memorial Chootout)at the Jegs Sportnationals in Bowling Green Kentucky in May will be awesome. Look for 15 plus cars there. Of Course the Hemi Challenge at the U S Nationals will have 20 plus. The Dutch Classic in October is always big and exciting with great conditions for fast times. A couple of new players will show up this year so some cars that haven't been out in a long time will reappear with new owners and drivers.

I'll hold off the names on the two new guys for now. Both of the cars have raced before with well know drivers and plan on racing at BG. One well known car will not be back, but the overall number should be about the same. Newcomers Berry & Warburton will be at BG for sure. It would be nice if Erik Jones could get Eric Bell's hemi done so he can move into the class. Maybe someone could talk Gary Moore into putting his Hemi back into the frame rails of his Cuda

Heard threw the local race grapevine in South Carolina there is a super stock car hiding in someone's shop being built. They say they have lots of mopars but it was not confirmed to be a super stock car. They said they saw a car being unloaded out of a trailer at night time and the scoop said hemi on it. The guy said they are pretty low key or "secret" and they would not let him come past the fence that was around the shop and ran him off. Shop has no names on it and there is a huge toterhome and trailer on the side of the shop. No one can seem to find out who or what's in there. White and black are the colors on the car that was in the trailer. Didn't know if anyone knew what was going on down here. Thanks

Yep, There is one in South Carolina. It is not a new car, but recently had the chassis updated at a well know chassis shop. I'm not sure you got the colors correct though. If it is one and the same it should be at Bowling Green for the "Chootout".

Just depends on how much you are buying vs how you are building?

Competitive motors are $40000-$60000 and then theirs the maintenance of it all which gets expensive as well. Dropped valves are common place since titanium is illegal. Again, thats if your running a shootout motor. You could building something far more conservative if you cared more about winning the event vs. winning class shootouts.

Looking at A/H cars, they appear to need ballast to get to the limit. They look light.
is that the case?

ANY properly constructed race car is built as light as possible so the extra weight (ballast) needed can be placed where it is most advantageous. The folks who build high end Super Stock cars are especially good at it.

Mopar is back again to sponsor the Hemi Shootout at the US Nationals at Indy. I talked to Dale Aldo at Joliet last week and they are working on the new poster for the racers. Mopar is hoping for a big turnout of Hemi cars. Get your cars ready, it should be a great show!

As of now it looks like there will be three first time Hemi Challenge cars and drivers at Indy next month. With the way Wayne Ramose ran yesterday maybe he will make the treck from California.

Well we have 17 today and I know of 8 more that should go so this looks to be a good turnout. Wayne would be make 26. So I would get a bye in 2nd round. !!!!

FYI In an attempt for the Islanders to keep up with the Krazy Kajuns they have bought a bad azz hot rod. The only time I ever had a win against that car was when it rolled the beams and went red. Still out performed me in ET. New sheriff in town and lives on an island. LOL

I looked at the Indy schedule and it doesn't show times for the Hemi challenge. I heard they changed the schedule times.
Does anyone have the new schedule?

Having the pleasure of meeting Bucky and Travis at the races a couple of times... it was heartbreaking to see Bucky damage that beautiful car a 2nd time.

Was bummed I had to miss attending this years shootout, but glad I didn't see that in person.

Please fill me in as to why these SS/AH cars haven't been reclassified??? Top dog in the shootout is 93 in the SS field? 15 shootout-SS/AH cars FAILED to qualify for the US Nationals.

Lol...reclassified to what?? I'd bet the none of them care as the shootout is why they are there.

You don't build a shootout car to worry about what is essentially a bracket race.

A bracket race? Really? Last time I checked, which has been about 50 something times now, the U.S. Nationals is about the farthest thing you could get from a bracket race. Do you really think a guy with a $100,000 drag car wants to pay all that money for entry fees and travel and on and on to NOT qualify? More than half the cars in the field didn't qualify for the race! Do you think that's fair to the SS/AH guys? NHRA needs to re-think what it takes to make these cars run that fast. The need to soften the index where the slower SS/AH cars can qualify for the biggest drag race of all time.

Tell your Dad thank you as well.

New business. NHRA D4 is having a national open on Nov 18 & 19. Record runs, grade point and class eliminations. Let's call it the WHO DAT CHOOTOUT for now so mark your schedule. So far the purse is already $2500 so let's get them crankshafts and valves back in and plan on coming down. Sea level in November, are you kidding me. My junk is in Arlington Monday for upgrades.

Super Stock eliminator is exactly a bracket race, unless you come up against a car in the same class, then it's heads up.

Results for the second round of the Hemi Shootout at Maple Grove Raceway :

Wendell Howes .313 reaction, 11.568 seconds, 77.72 mph - WIN
Bucky Hess - disqualified

Jimmy Daniels .074, 8.288, 160.54 - WIN
Gary Wolkwitz -.060, 8.356, 156.84 - red light start

Steve Comella ..039, 8.442, 145.89 - WIN
Bye Run

Although this is an unofficial explanation, I was told that the disqualification for Bucky Hess had to do with his staging.
Apparently he decided that he was staged crooked after he had entered the pre-stage beam and then backed up. As the explanation continued, it seems that you cannot back out of a pre-stage beam without the direction of the starter. Only the starter can authorize a racer backing out of a pre-stage beam.

I hope this explanation is accurate and correct.

2017 Tim Hebert/Big Joe Teuton Hemi "Chootout" at the Jegs Sportsnatinals.

Last year was a great race won by Steve Kent over Doug Fazzolare. Once again this year Southland Dodge, Mopar Performance, NHRA, Beech Bend Raceway (BBR) and Division Four (D4) Good Guys are pleased to announce the annual Tim Hebert/Big Joe Hemi “Chootout” to be contested during the Jegs Sports Nationals Memorial Day weekend May 26– 28, 2017 in Bowling Green, Ky. Tim Hebert was a long time NHRA D4 racer who passed away suddenly at age 53 on June 2, 2013 after participating in the NHRA Englishtown National Event. His orange and white 1968 Barracuda has been seen at NHRA and Hemi Shootout events throughout the United States for decades and will be participating in the “Chootout” with his son Rory at the wheel.

Never seen a brace like that. I do carry a spare steering box because I have seen them break. Good idea! Thanks, Dyno

my name is Bud Cope Jr, I purchased an older Jim Pancake Barracuda, trying to put a 440 stroker motor in it and did not realize that I would need a pan with access for steering, it has a motor plate, does anyone have a used one that I can purchase, I know I can have one built but time is running short, Clinton Cranston thought he had one but it was for the Indy block. phone number at home 724-785-7391. Thanks. Bud

So what is the difference in a Indy block? I thought they all used the same oil pan as the Mopar big block and hemi engines. From the info given, do you need a oil pan that has the tube through the pan for the drag link to go through? If so, that might be car specific as engine placement determines that.

So if that is the John Tedder car it probably is not up to the lasted AH standards. Is he going to update the car or just keeping it a AA car as it was in the past? I would love to see a picture of the car!!!

I caught the final on All Access. Hated seeing the one car spin that bad.
