Dominates last three races despite bugs
Brandon Snider has been virtually unstoppable in his JMRC built 63 Vette at Montgomery Motorsports Park’s Southern Outlaw Series. He’s won the last three races in a row despite some weird bugs the team has been dealing with.
At the last race, Snider qualified #1 with a 3.82@190, laid down .902-.912 60′ times all night long and took his Vette to the winners circle for the third time in a row at the season final race!
The team recently suffered a driveshaft failure at the ADRL World Finals ending their advances early, and at the same time they discovered a fuel shutoff valve that was wanting to shut itself off going down track. That’s the kind of thing that can drive you nuts, we’re glad they finally caught it. You can bet they’ll get these issues sorted out and be even stronger when they come back out in 2013! What will this car do when the fuel is flowing all the way down track? You can bet it’s going to be quick!
Way to Go on the Three-Peat Brandon !!!!

Terry Elam broke the Turbo Record in X275 last weekend at the Holly Springs Race where he laid down a email@example.com during the 2nd round of qualifying, a new low ET for a Turbo car. Elam recently switched his car over to a Precision 88mm turbo just before the SGMP race, so that’s really impressive to go that quick on only the second time out with the new combination.
Unfortunately Terry was a little to quick in the first round on the tree and lost to Dan Schell, but you can bet you’ll see more of this car in 2013! Terry’s Mustang was built by Mike Duffy Race Cars, Trans by Hutch, an “old faithful” Neal Chance Converter and Small Block Ford power built by Panhandle Performance.
Congratulations on the New Record Terry!!!

Tulsa Raceway Park’s Biannual Throwdown in T-Town was packed with racing action October 12th weekend. Despite fighting through rain and thunderstorms, the track got their big season final shootout in the bag finally on Sunday, and Neal Chance Racing Converters customers were frequent visitors to the winners circle yet again.
Stan Smith defeated Aaron Wells in an “all NCRC” final round of Outlaw Pro Mod running a firstname.lastname@example.org vs Well’s 4.03@169. Smith ran very hard at this race running 3.80’s and .90’s through eliminations making him a very tough competitor. Brandon Pesz set low qualifier with a 3.749, then ran a 3.67@205 1st round but ran into problems in round 2 ending his racing early.
Congrat’s to Stan and crew on your race win, Wells and crew on your running up and to Brandon on those very fast passes and #1 qualifier!
We also have to give a shout out to Mike Bruns and Joad Donnelly who got their 1st 3 second pass in at the Throwdown! We all know how hard it can be to break through those barriers to the next level and their Big Block Chevy powered budget team finally did it ! Congratulations guys!!

Alton Holstead solidly defeated Gary Vance in Outlaw Doorslammer for his 1st Throwdown win. Alton ran a email@example.com over Vance’s firstname.lastname@example.org. We’re very impressed with how far Alton and his team have progressed this season, they have made significant improvements and have been well into the 3.90’s at previous races.
Josh Long, Outlaw 10.5 Winner
And last but not least, a GREAT BIG ATTABOY to Josh Long for taking home the win in Outlaw 10.5 with a 4.54 over Tim Slavens. This is Josh’s 1st win in their Roots Blown Mustang which he and his family built at home in their garage. Josh is Marty Chance’s Nephew so we’re super proud of his 1st race win!!! We also want to give a shout out to Clif and Dave Long – you guys all did great!
Records Fall @ Shakedown at E-Town

Todd Tutterow put down the fastest pass ever in Pro Mod at the Shakedown with a email@example.com MPH run which far exceeds the previous record held by Melanie Troxel of 258.71. “King Tut” was running the new Neal Chance All Billet Lockup Converter which helped him lay down a 67.5 MPH Backhalf!!.
What’s Todd say about the new Lock Up Converter? “Perfect – we’re going 270 soon!!!” He also told us that he had to peddle some on that pass, which certainly scrubbed a little off.
The Precision Turbo Duster is going to be a dominate force to reckon with and everyone can see the potential that is right around the corner. Todd had troubles in Round 2 which ended his day early, but we hear tell the scoreboards are still smoking after that record breaking pass!

Also in Pro Mod, Camp Stanley was in the house and their team made it’s first trip to the 3.50’s zone! John went 3.59@201 after switching to the NCRC All Billet Converter! They went straight from the 3.70’s to the 3.50 zone which was quite a move. Incremental’s were .927, 2.41, 3.59@201!!! There’s a good video of the pass if you want to see the latest member to the 3.50 club make his pass on YouTube. We’re looking forward to seeing how the team does in Dallas at the ADRL finals.
Congratulations Camp, John and team!

In Outlaw 10.5 Charlie Dolbin and Harold Caldwell set a new N2O record of 4.18 in competition, and backed it up with a 4.22. In the final Charlie shook the tires giving Rob Wells the advantage to take the win. TJ Kasper was also running very hard laying down another 4.08 this time at a paint blistering 201.25 MPH – Congratulations to TJ, Tom and Gil Christy Motorsports on backing up Outlaw 10.5 Record and a new MPH Class record!
We’re glad to Richard Sexton and Gil Mobley got the GTO repaired and back in action! The team isn’t quite back up to speed, but after a nasty wreck we’re sure there are a few things to work out and we’re glad they are back!

In Heavy Street Tony Presto made the long haul down from Canada and was rewarded with a co-win along with Mitch George driving Jack Boer’s Monte Carlo. Due to an early curfew at the track, the final wasn’t actually ran so the “all NCRC” final round couldn’t be ran. Presto & George split the win and took home $5000 each.
Breaks TAO Record & TOPMA Win

The Clark Brothers Racing Team has been on a winning streak here at the end of the season. Eric Clark won the Texas Auto ProMod race in Houston October 7th and set a new class record of 4.05! Then the Team repeated with their first TOPMA win on October 13th at Texas Raceway. Eric was #1 Qualifer with a 3.962@183 and defeated Tim Cruce in the final with a 4.003@183 over Cruce’s 4.267@170.
Next they worked on capturing a 3rd in a row by jumping in the rig and heading north to grab the final day of the Throwdown in T-Town which was on rain delay, but some broken bolts on the input shaft stopped them short in their winning streak. We all know how that kind of thing happens, but you guys gave it a shot and that’s what counts.
Congratulations to Eric, Scott and Team Dusty, Ken, Robert and Kevin (hope we got everyone) on the wins and new record!
