David Pearson new Personal Best 4.11 pass

David Pearson laid down a new Personal Best and beat his own record on the 275 tire over the weekend during testing at Mooresville. He went 4.11@174.28 on 275 Drag Radials, beating his own previous record of 4.1698 from October last year. We’re pretty sure that pass is a new “unofficial” World Record, and you can bet there’s more where that came from next time he’s racing in competition.

It’s clear their team has made some great progress over the winter, new incrementals are 1.0114 60′, 2.7092 to the 330 at RVW weight – that little Mustang is knocking on the door for sub 1 second 60′ this year.

David’s Mustang is powered by a F3 ProCharged Small Block Ford by Bullet Racing Engines in a Teddy Houser built chassis. He uses the NCRC Bolt Together BB2 Converter in this bad little Hot Rod.

Congratulations to the Ass Clown Motorsports Team – David & Tracy (Ms. Little Evil) Pearson and Mustang Mike on a new record breaking pass for 275’s!!!

Thanks Curtis Reese Jr for great Video!

Jason Michalak put his brand new blown drag radial Corvette into the winners circle at the inaugural Radial Tire Racing Association race at Northstar Dragway. Not only did the Bad9er team win, they consistently laid down 4.0X passes throughout eliminations making him one tough Ombre to beat. Not bad for the second race out on the new car and combination!

Team Bad9er’s best pass in the Vette was during Round #3 with a 4.0020@191.65 – ooohhh so close to breaking into the threes. The Vette proved more than what Teammate Kyle Huettel could handle in the final round where Jason defeated him 4.0112@191.25 to a 5.50@85.94 very off pace pass by Kyle.

Congratulations Jason & Dream Team Members Billy Stocklin and Frankie Taylor on your big win, and to Kyle on the R/U!!!

Travis Thomason struck gold at Northstar running the Limited 275 class. Travis, AKA “Quaz” ran the table, he qualified #1 with a 4.8753@142.9, then backed that up with a 4.8792 in the 1st round which should make him the offical RTRA Limited 275 record holder.

In the final Travis defeated Bill Gibbs when he chopped the tree down on him and laid down a quick 4.9253 over Gibbs 5.134@136.70

We also want to congratulate Rick Thornton / Fast Forward Innovations & Team G-Mac who ran a very stout 4.05@190 at this race.

Big congratulations to Stevie “Fast” Jackson and “The Shadow” owned by Phil Shuler on their Radial Vs. The World Win at Lights Out 6 February 22nd. The Shadow, Shuler’s Grudge car, was recently switched over to a blower and with the help of a handful of very sharp racers, it was running hard right off the trailer. Jackson ran a 4.026@191.29 in the final round over a broken Chris Daniel which also set Low ET for the race.

Congratulations to Steve, Phil, the Tutterows, and the rest of the Team on big win!

We also want to give a shout out to Jason Michalak who brought out his brand new blown Vette to Lights Out 6, he was definitely buzzing the tower the new car!! Jason was #1 Qualifier and was going rounds like a bracket car in the 4.0’s but broke a crankshaft in the process ending their progress too early. No doubt Jason and his all star team of Billy Stocklin and Frankie Taylor will be back again making RVW competition that much harder. Way to go guys!

We hated to see local racer Dewayne Mill’s accident in RVW, thankfully he was not injured! You can bet he’ll be back, faster and strong than ever…
