We’ve got to give a shout out to Mustang Mike Modeste, he ripped off a blazing fast pass at MIR November 11th when he was there testing. Mike went firstname.lastname@example.org making him the 2nd fastest ProCharger car on 275’s, right on the heals of David Pearson’s 4.1698.

Interestingly, the 1/4 mile clocks were on, take a look at the back half it made not even on a full pass – email@example.com. We’re not sure exactly where he lifted, but it would have been interesting to see what it would have ran out the back door too!
Way to go Mike!!

Richard Sexton broke the 3 second barrier last weekend at Maryland International Raceway when he laid down the first 3.99 pass in Outlaw 10.5 History (Cecil Country Rules). Richard ran a 1.05, 2.72, firstname.lastname@example.org, then backed it up later with a 4.001 to prove it was no fluke. Team Mobley was also the #1 qualifier setting the MIR Track record in the process with a 6.08@238!
Unfortunately the team hurt the engine and weren’t able to continue eliminations, but you can bet that was a good day with a history making pass!
Big Congratulations Richard and the Mobley Motorsports Team!!

Mean Dean Marinis got the win in the X275 Vs. Hot Rod class at the Haltech World Cup Finals November 19th. Normally a 1/8th mile car that runs X275 class, Marinis had to run it out the back at this race. With the Nitrous shutting off early and running out of gear he still ran a 7.15@171 MPH which qualified him in the #2 spot. In the final he spun a bit, but still beat Tony Alm and was able to collect the $5,000 check in the winners circle!
Congratulations Dean and the Marinis Motorsports Team!!!
