Brad Harris ran some real impressive numbers at the Shakedown at E-Town this year during qualifying in Outlaw 10.5. He ran a 4.22@189, and later a 4.26@188 which are certainly in the hunt, but what most don’t realize is he did it with a smallish 540 ci powerplant boosted by twin 90mm Turbos!

Brad faced fellow NCRC customer Mo Hall in the 1st round, but didn’t get a chance to repeat his quicker passes and fell off the mark a bit sending Mo on to the next round. Hey you can’t win em’ all and the team certainly had some Et’s to be proud of after this race.

Typically many of the Outlaw 10.5 cars that are running a number that quick are powered with a 632, or bigger engine, which makes Brad’s very quick ET’s even more special. We know Brad’s got a few more things to try when the weather warms up again, so look for some even quicker ET’s from this team in 2013.

Congratulations Brad on the new PB!
