Mike Fortney's Chevelle put on a show.







Dailed a 8.90, Mike left with a .042 R/T, carried the wheels to the 200 foot mark, 
ran a 8.97 on a 8.90 and won the round. What a ride!! The 406 inch small block is all throttle, no bottle, through the mufflers on street tires.  
Just like always, Todd the photographer caught all the action. Nice job Todd.


The Rev rose to the occasion in the $1000 to win race going 4 rounds.

Jim Suggart visited from North Carolina in his `56 Ford powered by a 357 inch Dan Elliott engine. He ran a best of 10.23 at 131.66 MPH with a 5 speed!! What a good looking ride. BTW: Jim works in the NASCAR shop of Richard Childress as a transmission specialist.
