1970 Duster
Edelbrock headed 408
6.143@110.85 mph
9.73@135.05 mph shifting at 6700 RPM
422 Indy headed small block

Last I saw the air was like 1700 ft today. Not sub sea level but really good for drag week air.

Billy won his class, pretty sure Dale got a podium finish in the Gremlin and Brian finished in the Barnyard Viper. I think MoparBilly is pleased.

Steve Morris and Tom Baily get it done.......The talent and the abilities of that guy is unreal. Wow! Developed his own billet engine, built it, raced it, and shattered all the records....incredible.

I wonder if its true the rumor he is working on a billet water Hemi next.

Brad Bower and his rider Brett Miller went on to win Super Street Small Block Naturally Aspirated. They made two runs on Friday, one was a 9.09. Congratulations on a job very well done. Photos from Brad's Facebook post.

The 4 week drag week build.
Car was basically a shell 4 weeks before drag week.
We finished putting it together at VMP first drive was about 7 pm that night.
Brad Bowers and I put about 8 miles on it that night and made its first pass after the rain cleared.

Then we set out to drive 1000miles in the heat on drag week.

You just don’t understand drag week until you “do it”

Our buddy tory Shellhamer did a bunch of fab work on the car in one week. (Headers in 2 days 😳)

We went on to win the class (SS SB NA)
The racing Gods rewarded our hard work with not much problems for the Craziness that is DRAGWEEK 😀👍🏻

The engine was built in 2011 for engine masters challenge.

410” we gave up 20” per the rules for small block.
Has over 150 dyno pulls and 100s of passes in my car.
Has had the cam and intake changed over the years.
But engine has not been apart from 2011.

I put a new set of valve springs on for the drag week deal.

Put a street oil pan on and pump in the pan for the drive.

We had no over drive and 28” tall tire with 4.30 gear engine was run 3500-4000 rpm all week on the 1000 + mile drive.
Super happy with the engine only thing done to engine all week was an oil change and cut/check filter.

We where shifting at 8700 rpm at the track 😉

I need a few good days of sleep to think about doing this again 😀

If it hadn't been raining buckets Friday in Michigan, I'd have been on the road going to the Pure Stock Drags. You guys would have had to fend for yourselves. As it was, I wasted most of my day (week?) watching the live feed myself. Even when I had to go out, (for lunch, mainly) I ran the feed back so I could see what I missed. Glad to have done it. Now, where do I go to get paid. biggrin

It's better to keep your mouth shut and give the impression that you're stupid than to open it and remove all doubt.
