What another fantastic weekend at the WannaGOFAST ½ mile event in Dallas, TX for the VR family! This event has always been our most exciting race for all of our customers due to the fast speeds and excellent track conditions that we are able to experience at Hensley Field, and this weekend did not disappoint. Although we did battle some cold temperatures and a significant head wind on Sunday, our racers still drove their cars to some insanely fast speeds throughout the weekend, and we were proud to be alongside them as they set new personal bests and enjoyed the performance of their machines! In the end, we took eleven customer’s vehicles nearly 1,000 miles away and came back home with very minimal issues and zero major failures which is a huge win for any performance shop!

Before we get into performance results, we’d like to send out a VERY special thank you to Jason Siebels of Professional EFI Systems Inc. and Bryan Neelen of Late Model Engines for taking the time of their extremely busy schedule to come out and support Vengeance Racing at this event. Jason flew in Friday night from Phoenix and spent both days assisting Jey with calibrations on all of our ProEFI and ProSpeed ACM managed vehicles so that we could not only have the cars performing at their peak level, but also ensure that safety and fail-safe parameters were in place to keep the cars running as long as possible. Bryan from LME made the drive in from Houston on Saturday as well and spent the day going over engine combinations and setups with all of our racers, as well as offered guidance and support with ensuring that Eddie Blackwell’s new configuration in his N/A C5 Z06 performed at top level through the weekend. A HUGE thank you goes out to these guys for truly showing us what customer support is from our vendors.

To kick off the highlights from the weekend, Ned Dunphy absolutely killed it in his 2014 Viper this weekend driving the car to a new personal best of 216.8mph while still shifting gears with the stock TR6060 transmission and TRIPLE disc clutch! By the end of the weekend the clutch was getting a bit tired at nearly 1,900rwhp, but we have a few new drivetrain tricks coming for this car by the end of the year thanks to the crew at RPM Transmissions and Pro-Torque torque converters ;) Stay tuned for a big upgrade coming soon on this VR Viper!

Another huge weekend was had by Eddie Blackwell with his N/A C5 Z06. We will have a more detailed recap on the recent changes made by Late Model Engines to Eddie’s powerplant before this event, but in the end Eddie reset his own LS N/A record in the ½ mile with a best speed of 199.7mph! This is insanely fast, and truly amazing as the engine was installed and tuned by our shop foreman Jey Clegg in less than one week from the time it went into the trailer for the event! We cannot say enough about the dedication from LME as well as our supporting staff here to get this car to the track and let it make a total of 10 passes, none less than 196mph, and SIX passes at 199mph! We can’t wait to crack the 200mph barrier with this car and beyond very soon.

Chuck Greer C6 Z06 had an awesome weekend as well that was unfortunately cut a hair short on its last and fastest pass by a broken supercharger belt, but he was still able to pilot “Old Blue” to a best of 187mph. This vehicle has some more serious tricks up its sleeve coming for 2019 and we can’t wait to see Chuck put the 18X mph arena in his rear view next year.

There were many other accolades and accomplishments from all of our customers through the weekend and we could go on for quite a while with how well everyone performed throughout the event. A huge congratulations goes out to Derek Downing , Gina McKinley , Tommy Diffee , Corey Davis , and Ron Wise for all setting new personal bests as well! We’ll be gearing up through the holiday season to come out swinging at the #WannaGOFAST South Florida ½ mile event coming in mid-January, and look forward to seeing you all there!

ENJOY!
