Chris' GTO ran at 3530 back in the day. My car is at the same HP as back then. We were running 3280 or 3250, can't remember. We are now at 3300, and the GTO has lost 230 #, as I read it. That...

I ran against Chris Brannon's GTO for several seasons. It seems to me, since it had a 5.7 L engine (maybe wrong) that he ran several hundred pounds more than the FP cars. His car was FAST. I beat...

Due to multiple reasons, too boring with which to burden you, I will be missing the Runoffs. I did not race last season, at all, for the first time since 1975 - because, well everyone knows the...

I have always had a problem with DOT classes running with cars on true racing slicks. Like Danny mentioned, we do almost everything different, to end up with almost identical lap times.

It is really pretty rare for an AS car to blow an engine in FP trim. When we had iron cranks, it seemed like every other Ford blew up at least once during Runoffs week. For me, I haven't blown an...

I second Andy's post. I have two FP Chevy engines. Both produce right around 450 hp. and good torque. They will rev to 8,000, but I limit them to 7,500 at the Runoffs, and less than that all...
