Last weekend at that Capital Raceway Pro Mod Wars, Marinis put down a 5.780@246.89 to reset the ET record for the Northeast Outlaw Pro Mod Association and broke the Capital Track Record as well.

Incrementals on the record breaking pass were –

This is likely one of the fastest and quickest passes ever with a Turbo 400! Dave at ProFormance builds one heck of a unit!!!
