Jason Michalak and Rick Thorton put on quite a show at the RTRA race at Northstar Dragway September 12th in the Pro Drag Radial Class.
Thorton chose this event to join the 3 second club when he was lined up against hard charging Justin “Red” Martin. Thorton went 1.088 to the 60′, 2.7324 to the 330′ and clicked off a email@example.com!!!! To top it off, he and tuner Grant McCrary did it with a small block to boot! That run was the 1st official 3 second run for any small block on a M/T 315 radial!!
Thorton drew Jason Michalak, another rare member of the 3 second club in the “All NCRC” final. Thorton, all pumped up after his three second run, got a bit antsy on the tree and lit that ugly red while Michalak thundered down track with a firstname.lastname@example.org.
Congratulations to Jason Michalak and the Bad9er Team on the win, and to Rick Thorton, Grant McCrary and the Fast Forward Innovations Team on the R/U plus new World Record for a Small Block on 315’s!!!
We also want to give a shout out to Taylor Lastor who was also competing in Pro Drag Radial, he recorded a new PB with his NCRC Lockup Converter running a 4.0408 to take the #1 qualifying position.
