Thank you fans for giving us another great season!
We started this season coming off the high from the season ending licensing runs of Chuck Exton. Since then we blasted the 427 down Island Dragways great track for multiple test/fun weekends, Island's Anniversary show and Dover Drags @ Lebanon Valley.
We finished the season yet again only changing only piston rings, spark plugs and fluids. Everything else (yes rod bearings, stock Melling oil pump and the old iron 427) has remained the same and survived more 6 second abuse from Chuck's right foo
The stock Melling oil pump once again has supplied the Dump Truck BBC 427 with over 12 hard 6 second runs keeping all parts lubed. After four years we still have yet to replace the bearings! When you have the best engine builder putting together a nitro team you get a solid program like we have.
Even though the end of the season came with an unexpected wall ride, it was filled with a ton of great memories. There was a busy off season getting parts assessed, money lined up and major help from our sponsors and chassis shop. We are doing final assembly of parts and a test run to get ready to take on the 2019 season!
As always, let us know if you would like us to attend a car show, race, kids/pets birthday party, graduation, business party or other event.
