Tim Lynch to Drive Automatic Pro Mod


el-general-lynchmob

The El General racing GTO is in the stages of upgrading to a turbocharged Pro Line Racing 481X, but that is not the only big news coming from this team. We are pleased to announce that they will also be getting a new driver and crew chief. The "Lynchmob" (Tim Lynch and Steve Petty) will be handing the driving and tuning responsibilities of the GTO, which is being set up to compete in the Automatic Pro Mod class.

Tim and Steve have set the standard for speed and consistency in Outlaw 10.5 and they will look to do the same in any class they venture into. They will continue their normal Outlaw 10.5 schedule in their turbo Corvette.  Either way, we can't wait to see how this will pan out!

Melanie Troxel Wins at Bristol


melanie-bristol

The 11th annual Ford NHRA Thunder Valley Nationals in Bristol, Tennessee, proved to be a challenging race with troubling weather delays and difficult track conditions. Despite the weather, Melanie Troxel and the R2B2 Racing crew put on a clinic of speed and consistency in the RoadRage.com '53 Pro Mod Corvette .

Melanie came to this event fresh off of a record setting outing in Englishtown, New Jersey where she set the current ET and MPH records. Hungry for a win, Troxel began her weekend as the #2 qualifier with a 5.96@252mph!

During eliminations, she faced four different blower cars and showed each of them what her Pro Line Racing 481X turbo car was capable of. Round 1, Melanie was faced against Mike Knowles in the "Blown Money" car. She ran a 6.00@221mph to his 6.05@235mph. She then moved on to round 2 with Mike Janis. Janis' 6.38@179 wasn't enough to take down "The Silver Bullet" as she went 5.99@251mph! The third round of eliminations held a surprise for Melanie as she lined up against her teammate, Leah Pruett LeDuc, who drives Troxel's old car. She went 5.97@252mph to take out LeDuc and move on to the finals.

The fourth and final round matched Melanie with Danny Rowe. Danny red-lit and Melanie took home the Wally!

Congrats to Melanie and the whole R2B2 Racing crew. Good luck at Norwalk this weekend!

Ultimate Outlaws Shootout at Milan


kevin-fiscus-jason-enos-header
Last weekend we were reminded that Nate and Adam Pritchett sure know how to put on a race. The Ultimate Outlaws Shootout series continued its success in Milan, MI at Milan Dragway.

At the last Ultimate Outlaws race in Piedmont, Jason Enos and Kevin Fiscus both qualified #1 and lost in eliminations. They arrived at this race with the mindset to WIN!

Drag Radial record holder, Kevin Fiscus, made his intentions clear by taking the #1 qualifier position with a 4.51@175mph! He started eliminations with a 4.58@175mph and improved every run. He went 4.57@174 and 4.52@162 before making it to the finals. In the last round he faced the winner of the Piedmont race, Steve Jackson. Knowing this would be a tough race, Fiscus saved his best pass for last. He went 4.44@177mph for the win!


Jason Enos and his crew set their sights on a much needed Outlaw 10.5 victory. He also qualified #1 with an impressive 4.38@182mph! He was able to string together several consistent passes which made his path to the finals look easy. His runs included; 4.34@183, 4.35@183, 4.36@182, and a 4.32@184 to squeak by Scotty G in the finals with a .01 margin of victory!

What a weekend for these racers and their crews. We can't wait to see what is next for them as they continue to dominate with speed and consistency!

Melanie Troxel's Turbo Debut


melanie-5772

The NHRA Supernationals at Old Bridge Township Raceway Park in Englishtown, New Jersey, offered outstanding racing conditions and the most competitive Pro Mod field we've seen all year. The R2B2 racing team was in full effect and put up some of the most impressive numbers ever!

In her first outing as the driver of "The Silver Bullet" (ProCareRX '53 Corvette powered by a Pro Line Racing 481X and Precision turbos), Melanie Troxel set out to shock the world. During qualifying, Melanie's 1st run was a 5.808 @ 257.33, which broke her teammate, Raymond Commisso's, record which stood at 5.81! She backed it up in her 2nd qualifying run with a 5.800 @ 258.71! In her final qualifying pass, Steve Petty made some adjustments and the results were tremendous. She went 5.772 @ 258.37mph, once again stamping her name into the history books!

Unfortunately, Melanie's record setting weekend was cut short due to a holeshot loss to Dennis Radford in the first round. On an extremely positive note, Melanie achieved a world record and backed it up twice in her first race driving a turbo car. We are overjoyed with her performance and can't wait to see what she and the rest of the R2B2 Racing crew will accomplish in the future!

Tim Lynch's Turbo Corvette Street Car


lynch street_header

Our last few posts have showcased what some of our racers drive on the street. This post features Pro Line Racing's own, Tim Lynch and his 2007 ZO6 Corvette! His street car is almost as stunning as the Lynchmob Outlaw 10.5 Corvette. Lynch sent his car to Vengeance Racing in Cumming, GA to be fabricated for a twin turbo setup. Meanwhile, his engine was being built at Pro Line Racing!

This engine was designed for a high powered turbo street car. An RHS block with All Pro heads and a Lunati crank will hold up to everything the twin Precision 62mm turbos can throw at it!

Once the Vette was put back together, it was dyno time! Lynch went back to Vengeance Racing to put the car on the dyno to see what kind of power he was making. The results spoke for themselves... 1343rwhp and 1224rwtq! Here's the video!

Meanwhile, at Piedmont Dragway in Greensboro, NC, there was another Outlaw race going on. This year's first Ultimate Outlaw Shootout proved to be as exciting as we all thought.

In X275 action, Jeff Kyle brought his small block turbo Mustang, looking to continue his dominance in the class. He took yet another #1 qualifier spot with a 5.04@143mph. He made it to the second round of eliminations where he was knocked out of competition in a very close race.

Kevin Fiscus raced in the Outlaw Drag Radial class and was hungry to take home another win. He started off with an impressive 4.57@177mph to secure his place as the #1 qualifier. He made it to the semis, but his night ended earlier than he had hoped.

Jason Enos represented Pro Line in Outlaw 10.5. Enos, driving his immaculate PLR 670 powered 1967 Mustang, continued to build on his already successful year. He also took the #1 qualifier with a 4.31@185mph. Jason made it all the way to the finals where he laid down a 4.32@184mph, but he lost on a holeshot.

Congrats to the racers and their teams for a 1st place finish, three #1 qualifiers, and showing that they are the fastest cars on the track.

Street Machine Nationals in Australia


The NHRA Summer Nationals wasn't the only race we were excited about last weekend. The Street Machine Nationals took place on May 14th in Sydney, Australia. One of our Australian dealers, Dandy Engines, and his customers, put on a drag racing clinic for the crowd.

Pro Street Blown

Domenic Luppino had another bittersweet outing in his 449ci SBF Mustang. He has struggled with transmission issues for the last 4 races. On a very positive note, Dom and his crew fixed the transmission and managed to go 7.05@203mph, resetting the Pro Street record and continuing his dominance over the class. The tranny broke again during the first round of eliminations and ended their evening early. Once they get this issue fixed, watch out Australia!

Jeremy Callaghan, another Dandy and Pro Line customer, has recently made tons of progress in his Profab built Torana which is powered by a 427ci LSX with twin 82mm turbos. A consistent string of 7.70 passes breezed him through eliminations and won him the race!

Jeremy Callaghan

Modified Street Blown

Joe Gauci, driver and chassis builder of Profab, yet again showed the MSB class how it's done! Frank Marchese, from Dandy Engines said, "That guy is unbelievable!" His 370ci Ford Cotina with twin small frame Precision 70mm turbos is like a bracket car out there. He made his way to the finals with 7.30's and low 7.40's, which set up one of the nicest drive by victories we've seen in a while! The other driver had him by a car-length and Joe managed to pass him at the 1000 foot mark! Not to mention, he went 200.5 mph in the process, a new career high!

Joe Gauci

We are always happy to receive updates from our customers for home and abroad. Congrats and thanks to the racers and their crews.
