The Fiscus/Klugger Racing team has been on quite a roll this season. With Josh Klugger's 1st win in the bag and a handful of record breaking passes, this team is harder to be than ever!
They showed up to Outlaw Drag Radial event called Midnight Madness, held on Friday, May 25th at MIR. Kevin Fiscus resumed driving duties of the PLR 632ci BBF powered Mustang. Fiscus started the day nicely with a 4.43@176mph to take the #2 qualifying spot behind Maryland native, Ricky Fox.
Fiscus defeated Rich Bruder with a 4.40@175mph and Brad Edwards with a 4.40@177mph! In the final round Fiscus had to face Ricky Fox. Fox left the line first with a .033 advantage, but his 4.45@169mph was not enough as Fiscus drove by with an impressive 4.35@178mph!
We'd like to congratulate Kevin, Josh and the whole Fiscus/Klugger Racing team on another big victory this year!
Josh Klugger's Victory at Bradenton
The Fiscus/Klugger Racing team Mustang has already begun making a buzz in the Outlaw Drag Radial ranks this year. With a slew of record breaking low 4.30 runs and an amazing 4.27 at Holly Springs, this team knows that the target is on their backs this year. Last weekend at Bradenton Motorsports Park, Josh Klugger took the wheel as his teammate and fellow driver, Kevin Fiscus, took on tuning duties.
Klugger started it off right by taking the #1 qualifier spot with a 4.60@180mph! During the semifinals, Klugger set a new personal best and the track record for Outlaw Drag Radial and Limited Street trim with a 4.45@183mph! The final round of eliminations lined him up with Scott Husted and his 93 Mustang. Husted's 4.61@170mph was no match for Klugger's 448@183mph!
What a weekend for Klugger and the whole Fiscus/Klugger Racing team. Performances like this are what make this team so hard to beat. Congrats and best wishes as the season moves on!
Fiscus Breaks into the 4.20's in ODR Trim
Kevin Fiscus, of Fiscus/Klugger Racing, has made history once again. He has become the first racer to go 4.20's in Outlaw Drag Radial trim! During a Friday test and tune session at Holly Springs, Fiscus blasted off an impressive 4.27@187mph! This run earned them the record for the quickest legal Outlaw Drag Radial car and Stock Suspension car in the world!
This performance raises the question, Will we see drag radials in the 4.1X's? Either way, congrats to Kevin, Josh, and the rest of the Fiscus/Klugger Racing team!

John Kolivas, driver of Jere Etheridge's twin-turbo PLR 632ci BBF powered Mustang, put on a driving clinic for the Mississippi crowd! Kolivas started the weekend with a 4.43@175mph, qualifying him #3 behind Kenny Hubbard and Kevin Fiscus.
Kolivas strung together a handful of consistent 4.50 second runs to make it to the finals, where he would matchup against Stevie "Fast" Jackson, in one of the greatest final rounds we've seen in long time! Kolivas ran a 4.529 to Jackson's 4.523, It looked like they crossed the beams at the same time but Kolivas' .016 light gave him the edge over Jackson's .034 reaction time. Kolivas took the win with a .012 margin of victory.

The Q80 Outlaw 10.5 Mustang Goes 238MPH!
One of our customers in Kuwait, Duaij AL-Sabah, owns one of the baddest Outlaw 10.5 cars in the world! It is a Skinny Kid built 2004 Mustang powered by the PLR 670 and twin Precision 94mm turbos. With that car and the services of Pro Line Racing's tuner, Steve Petty, they were ready to dominate the competition in the season finale of the BNDR at Bahrain International Circuit!
Among many impressive passes, the Q80 Racing Team was able to make Outlaw 10.5 history. They went email@example.com, which stands as the new Outlaw 10.5 1/4 mile speed record! On the next pass, they set a new personal best E.T. with a 6.29@215mph even thought he had to lift near the end of the run.
It seems safe to say that the Q80 Racing Team is happy with this performance and we can't wait to see them in action again. Congrats to Duaij, Turky, Mohammed and the rest of the Q80 Team!

El General & Jeff Kyle Win at SCSN!
The Street Car Super Nationals is by far biggest outlaw drag race on the west coast, but some people consider it the biggest race of the year, period. It takes place every year at the Strip in Las Vegas, Nevada, which makes it a difficult race for the east coast racer, because it is such a long drive.
Two teams running Pro Line Racing engines were present. One of the PSCA's newest Wild Street stars, Jeff Kyle, and the winners of the Shakedown at E'Town Pro Mod Blown class, the El General Racing team.
Kyle recently moved from his home in the Carolinas to California, and he has smoothly transitioned into the west coast drag racing scene! He has enjoyed a great deal of success in the short time he has been there. Kyle entered the Wild Street class with his small block, turbocharged 2000 Mustang!
Kyle started his dominance by qualifying #1 with a 7.61@189mph! On his way to the finals, he managed to set the low E.T. (7.59) and high MPH (189mph) for the event. In the final round of eliminations, Kyle faced Jeff Young and his '85 Camaro. Kyle took him on the tree, got ahead early, and never looked back as he went firstname.lastname@example.org to Young's 9.13!
The El General Racing team made the long haul from Florida to Vegas with one objective, a $20,000 purse and even more bragging rights. The El General GTO entered the Pro Street class and is powered by the PLR 481X and twin Precision turbochargers.
With a 55 car field, the Pro Street class was filled with heavy hitters from organizations like: NHRA, ADRL, PSCA and many others from all over the US and Canada. During qualifying, El General made a great pass to go 5.95@254mph to take the #3 spot. This was a great sign for crew chief and tuner Steve Petty, because he knows how consistent this car is, once he figures the track out!
The GTO sailed through eliminations running mid 5.90's! They faced the #1 qualifier, Mike Maggio, in the final round. Maggio left the line with a small advantage, but by the 330ft mark, the GTO was blasting ahead as Maggio spun the tires! El General won with a 6.00@232mph!
We feel privileged to congratulate both teams for their hard work and dedication. You will remember victories like these forever!
