Drag racing

Drag racing is our favorite sport! We race NHRA stock and super stock as well as nostalgia racing. Our 1968 Plymouth GTX has been on Pinks All Out in 2009 and 2010 making the field of 16 both times. We also won the NHRA Hot Rod reunion in 2007 and 2008 with this car. The GTX is powered by a 500 inch Mopar wedge engine and a 727 transmission. The best ¼ mile time is 10.06 @ 133 mph.

Our newest car is a 2010 Dodge Drag Pak Challenger. Chrysler made 50 of these drag only cars in 2010 and our car is #18. The car was picked up at Roush Racing as a body in white with a 6.1 Hemi. These cars are package cars meaning they have to be built by the owners. BRC Racecraft built our chassis and rollcage as well as the Dana rear axle. Cope Racing Transmissions built the trick 727 and ATI provided the convertor. Jones Engineering machined the block and balanced the rotating assembly. The car was then painted at the Auto Clinic in Washington, IN. Special thanks to Washington Chrysler for their help ordering the car and providing parts.

Update!  We won our first Wally in April of 2012 at the Lucas Oil Division race in Indianapolis!

After 2 years of racing in stock we decided to run Super stock with our Drag Pak in 2013. Normally running in SS/JA we switched to GT/FA for the U.S.Nationals and won our class for our second Wally. We switched back to SS/JA and won the October combo race in Bowling Green, KY.

2016. Running in NHRA's new FSS/K class the Drag Pak Challenger ran a 9.550 @ 140mph during the class finals at the Sports Nationals in Bowling Green, KY! Special thanks to One Way Technologies, FAST, BRC Racecraft and Alan White!

At the Hot Rod Reunion in Bowling Green, KY we were #2 qualifier with the GTX running a 10.004 on our 10.00 index. After winning round one with a .001 reaction time our day ended in round two with a breakout run of 9.96.

Next race will be in Columbus, OH at the Divsion 3 points race runing the Drag Pak.
