The car is a '68 Chevy II, 327-275 h.p. that runs in G/SA class. The NHRA index for G/SA is 12.00. If the track is above 1,500 ft, the index is adjusted from that.
This is at Pierre, S.D. this season. Index there is 12.15. The car went 11.155 (-.995 under the index). The 11.14 on the side window indicates the dial in for that round:
A couple from Rock Falls, Wisconsin. Went a best of 11.126 on the 12.00 G/SA index (-.874 under):
At Thunder Valley in Marion, S.D. last weekend. The index there is 12.30, as it's an IHRA track but has no altitude factor. Index is 12.30, qualified # 2 on Saturday with an 11.1305 (-1.1695 under):
On Sunday, was the #3 qualifier at 11.1260 (-1.1740 under):
At Earlville, Iowa (Tri State Dragway) this season, the car went into the 10's for the first time. On the 12.0 NHRA index there (no altitude correction) it went 10.95, 10.94 and two 10.96's. Getting into the 10's and running a full one second under on a non-altitude ajusted track has been my goal since I started this project in late 2013.
Matt Steen (lt) and Jason Verke (rt) of Victory Engines in Marshall, Mn. These two are extremely talented machining artists that are constantly looking for improvements. I'd be nowhere without their help!
My good friend Bob Sherwood also figures into this. His private dyno facility is a big part of my program. His expertise in data acquisition and analysis has been invaluable.
If you require further confirmation, Speed-Talk forum member 'vortecpro' can also attest to the car's credentials. I'm also on the B.O.D. of Midwest Class Racers, an organization that promotes Stock/Super Stock races in South Dakota, Minnesota, Iowa, Nebraska and Wisconsin. As well, the car has been extensively documented on Classracer.com under the 'Build' section. Following this link will get you there:
