Itís been a long time coming for the Aussie from Mississippi. Joey Bridge struggled with consistency earlier this season, and after the midseason rules adjustments, he had a little bit more work to do. He showed up at Joliet with an 85mm turbo atop his Modular engine, but is here in Atco with an 88mm strapped in the nose of the car. He was rewarded with 8.02 passes in both the second and third rounds of qualifying, re-setting the Drag Radial record for the year, and coming oh-so-close to the coveted 7-second zone. Heíll be tough to beat tomorrow.
After racing at Fun Ford Weekend last weekend, Conrad Scarry had a camshaft problem that sidelined him for the entire week trying to make the necessary repairs. When he got here to Atco, the heads were still not even installed on the engine. He headed out to see Rich Maitre at RAM Racing Heads at the direction of fellow Pro Outlaw 10.5 racer Jerry Morgano. Maitre fixed the heads up, and Scarry and the Scarry Crew got the car back together after a long, late night. Not only did they get the car fixed, but they also joined Dan Millen in the fastest side-by-side Pro Outlaw 10.5 pass in NMRA history. Scarry is currently qualified second with a 6.802 at 217.18 MPH.
Last night Dan Millen reset the record in Turbonetics Pro Outlaw 10.5, with a 6.84 at only 200 miles per hour. Today, in the second round of qualifying, Millen didnít back up the record, but reset it with a 6.78-second blast at over 212 miles per hour, showing the potential that Fridayís trap speed hinted at.
After a hellish ride up to New Jersey from South Carolina that included three simultaneous blowouts on the same side of the rig, Chris Tuten finally got his wounded trailer onto the premises and unloaded his Super Street Outlaw car. With this event just Tutenís second race in the class, heís well ahead of the typical learning curve for a venture of this sort. The car is definitely making the power, as evidenced by Tutenís hellacious 187.26 MPH trap speed. The curve of making the 28x10.5 tire work, however, is something he hasnít masteredÖyet. Another couple of races, and we have the feeling that Mr. Tuten will be turning a whole lot of heads.
