After a nuclear meltdown early this season that made the guys from Chernobyl jealous, it was time to retire “Frank” the engine I’ve been running in the Nova since 2007. Frank served me well but he was seriously out of date compared to what the other guys in X275 are running. You just can’t run with the new stuff with 11 year old parts, specifically heads that is. Since I melted #2 & #8 chambers down in our old original Sniper Heads, it was time to step up our game finally.
Chris and I had a minimal number of changes to the car over the winter, so we were able to get out for the first race of the season in our area at the Midwest Promod Series X275 Race at Texas Motorplex. It was a mad thrash getting ready for that race, not so much on the race car, but getting some repairs done on the Motorhome before the race. Very much last minute, we got all loaded up and was able to leave by 10pm and drove all night to get to the track by 5 am. Luckily we didn’t wake up Gaylen Smith when we rolled in beside him in the pits at 5!
