It's been quite the season to date...

We have spent countless hours getting to this point and we are finally ready to “take our talents to Norwalk, Ohio” for what we hope becomes a safe weekend full of great memories with our fellow NHRA competitors and family & friends who will be traveling multiple hours to cheer us on.

With the great support of our many associates and close friends in the racing industry, we are confident we have all the bugs worked out of our new 640 cubic inch engine combination and it’s time for some no hassle racing.

We had the opportunity to take a break on Sunday June 19 to display our dragster at a Father’s Day cruise at Quaker Steak and Lube (Austintown, Ohio).  The event drew large numbers for participants and families from all over the Tri-State area.  The event had solid media coverage and there were endless amounts of photos taken of our dragster by those in attendance.

This week brings us to the highlight of the season - the NHRA Summit Racing Equipment Nationals (Norwalk, Ohio) June 23-26.  We get one qualifying attempt on Thursday, two qualifying attempts on Friday (which should be the best day for anyone looking attend the event), the first two rounds of eliminations are Saturday, and the final three rounds of eliminations on Sunday.

You can follow our progress all weekend long at under the NHRA section.  Our category of competition is Top Dragster.

We will also be debuting our new K&N designed carbon fiber hood scoop at Norwalk which is set to be a proven gain to our dragster's performance and appearance (engineered to add anywhere from 3-5 MPH in the quarter mile).

We would like to thank all of our many associates who have made this season possible:
