Don’t you just love the diversity!!! Mike Love is an absolute crazy man when it comes to the mud pits. He is currently first in points and wins the bulk of the events he enters in Open Class competition. Mikes mud machine mounts a mucho modified motor amidst mondo mudders amassing massive monies. What!? Anyway, isn’t this thing cool!
Talk about patriotic, this Bickel built 63 Split Window Corvette is a “Best Appearing” car winner. Running in NHRA division 6’s Top Comp class, owned by Frank Tamez and sponsored by his car dealership, Auto Max USA. It sports a Shaffirof built 632, 1.76 glide and 4.11 geared fab 9. The car saw a best of 7.67@177 naturally aspirated with an 1150 HP. Just bolting on the Pro Systems carb saw a 27 HP increase on the dyno and a new best of 7.59@180 with the same conditions and 60 ft time. Frank says.. “Thanks Patrick. Your carbs flat work”.
Pro-Systems feeds the mojo to David McCoy’s Lizzard built Donavan block. The Trans Am has been running with the Super Modified pack at 7.78 – 175 mph range. Thanks goes to Competition Engineering, NOS, Rossler Transmissions, Lindy’s, and Wes Deweese for making it all go down the track straight and smooth.
Pat Budds Corvette recently won a Best Engineered car award at the IHRA Nationals. The best thing about this car is that Buddman built this whole car, engine, chassis and all in his family garage. It just goes to show the guys in their garages can run with the big dogs. But no one can do it without help. If you call these two guys help. LOL!!
Rick Moroso uses BES power to propel his absolutely stunning corvette to the top rung of the ladder at the recently run US-131 NMCA event. He scores the win light almost every time he hits the track. This performance advantage gives Rick some time on his hands. Here he is, as usual, just sitting around watching the girls go by. It’s a nice life when you’re on the top rung.
Dale Larsen uses Morris Racing engine power to get his Black Monte Carlo down the racetrack. Dale is getting his feet wet in NMCA Pro-Street competition. He’s getting some passes under his belt and when he gets a chance to hold the nitrous button down for a full pass this car is gonna be a player for sure.
Randy Paulsen has used Pro Systems carburetors on his corvette forever. The car you see here used to use a small block and a 750 double pumper for power. Now its stuffed with a sheet metal dual dominator fed behemoth on foggers. Aaaah…. the evolution of the racer. Its been a long road and we’ve had a great relationship during the evolution of this street car.
Jamie Gelting is in the Hot Street wars and uses Glidden power to propel his car down the track. Gelting is making great power and is sorting out his new ride. Look for him to be hunting down Rick Moroso in a final round at a race near you.
Bruce Lagory’s ‘Cuda is just plain evil. At over 150 mph the BES powered Lawrenceburg, IN based car is flirting in the 8 second zone. Once again he is at the top of the class. regularly qualifying in the number one position and taking the biggest trophy home at the end of the weekend. His performance at US-131 was typical. Number one qualifier, biggest trophy.
Phil Hines 1986 Mustang had about 5 mph on the field, also qualifying number one at the US 131 event. He took all the power and put it to the track. Winning the event in style. You make it look too easy Phil.
Jim Mackenzie used his horsepower advantage to put his awesome 1962 409 into the number one position. A 409 running 150 mph and teasing the 8 second zone is beyond belief. You have to get out to these NMCA shows and see this to believe it. This car sounds awesome! Jim also took home the big trophy in Pro-Nostalgia. Great work Jim!
