As many of you know, I’ve been racing my two past seasons on my stock 6.1L Hemi engine. Of course it’s supercharged by Magnuson, but it’s a completely stock motor, and it’s still running after 58,000 miles and 500 drag strip passes! So we thought it was time to give her a break. I’m very proud to announce that this year I will be racing with a new 6.4L Hemi engine built by my new marketing partner, Arrington Performance & shopHEMI.com! If you don’t know Arrington, basically all you need to know is that they are the BEST performance Mopar engine builder and performance parts company. They have the best facility (FIVE engine dynos!), do the most R&D, are the best engine builders and technicians with the most Hemi expertise, and they build the best, most reliable and fastest motors on the planet. And through shopHEMI.com they seel everything they develop in addition to every performance part your late model Hemi wants or needs!
We’ll be covering the build of the motor in the magazine this year in great detail, as well as what makes Arrington so great. But this means that we’ll be making our way out of Sportsman and into the Pro class, because the Magnum will be running faster this year! I won’t say how much yet, because the numbers are still just calculations. But I will tell you that I’m very excited to unleash the new 6.4L supercharged beast when I get it!
To kick off the season, I’ll be going to the PSCA Record Breaker Nationals February 8-10 at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. It’s the first Pacific Street Car Association race of the season, and I can’t wait to get started. And this Of course, I’ll be singing the national anthem on Sunday morning just before eliminations start, so even if you don’t race, come out to see the awesome racing and hear me sing! And as extra bonus, The West Coast Outlaw Pro Mod Association and the Pacific Street Car Association have formed a partnership for three events over the course of the 2013 season. The Record Breaker Nationals are the first race with the new fastest class being WCOPMA, so you get to see the wild and wicked fast Pro Mods race!
We won’t have the new motor ready just yet, but I’ll keep you updated on when the install is happening so you can see the debut of the new awesome motor! See you at the races!
