Several of my friends and I are interested in motor
racing, so I thought I'd make a racing page. There are a half
dozen guys involved and we all have different kinds of racing
experience. I raced top fuel drag motorcycles for a couple of
years back in Ohio when I was a kid, Doug (the crew chief) built
and raced off-road trucks in Arizona for a few years, Jimmy races
funny cars and dragsters, and Eldon (the car owner) has experience
racing dirt track AMA Superbikes.
Right now, we are racing Eldon's Early Modified IMCA
car around the Northwest, mainly at Evergreen Speedway in Monroe,
Washington. The car is an old coupe racing body on a homemade
frame with a 450+ horsepower Chevy V-8, TCI racing tranny, and
quick-change rear end. It runs on Goodyear Eagle racing slicks
and burns 110 octane Trick racing fuel.
We are also beginning some testing on Jimmy's NHRA
ProStock dragster. Its a 1973 Plymouth Barracuda with a full tube
frame and a custom narrowed nine inch rear end. Its currently
running a stock (internally) 318 Mopar engine, but Jimmy plans
on installing a big block 440 Mopar engine someday.
I'll try to keep up notes on specific races and post links
to them here.
