Marc Meadors put one into the record books at the California Hot Rod Reunion October 21st with both a win and he reset both ends of the record books for Nostalgia Pro Mod!

“It was so easy to make it fast…”

Prior to this race, Marc installed the latest in converter technology for Roots & Screw Blown cars, the NXS billet converter in to his “Pure Hell2” 68 Camaro . He went on to shatter the record with a 5.873@248.75mph blast in the first round, and that was no small feat as the team was using a rather small 451 inch TAD engine to boot!.

That “little” engine went 197 mph to the 1/8th as well, and yes that’s smoking fast. Marc went on to squeak out an even faster 249.03 in the semi-final over Joe Lepone Jr.

This was Meador’s first win at Famoso, and you can certainly bet that it won’t be his last!

Congratulations Marc and the Goodguys Racing Team!!!

Street Fighter Champion at MIR Import Vs. Domestic

RICCARDI WINS WORLD CUP

Rick Riccardi wins World Cup

Rick Riccardi continued his winning streak at the 17th Annual MIR Import Vs. Domestic World Cup Race. Hot off the heals of his win at Bowling Green last month, he qualified #3 with a 8.373@160.58. That wasn’t good enough for the team, they kept working on the details resulting in a 8.204@162 with a smoking 1.14 60′ during eliminations.

Rick dispatched his competition enroute to the final and then met James Kempf, the #1 qualifier. Rick took him out with a 8.282@161.36 over Kempf’s 9.472@161.27!

One pass in the semi finals he even laid down a 1.24 60′ on the back tires! Awesome…

Check out the video!

Congratulations Rick!!!!

Dominates last three races despite bugs

Snider Wins Montgomery

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 4.6406@155.17 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 3.882@189.87 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 4.052@182.70 over Vance’s 4.407@158.63. 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.
