Miami design check out their site for some of the sample work and a special thanks goes out to all the companies that made this years bash a blast.
11/1 Congratulations to Antron Browm
For the second time Antron Brown has dominated the competition and won the top Fuel championship. Brown was not able to make it to the finals in the Las Vegas Toyota nationals, but he had enough points over the season to maintain his leadership position. Brown’s closest competition, Doug Kalitta, was taken out in the second round of eliminations.
Brown has 38 top fuel victories and 54 overall career victories. Hats of to him and his team for their impressive performance this season.
10/15 Special thanks to Orlando Dragway
We made an appearance to the WhoopAzz test and tune night. The event was incredibly well organized for a local test and tune night. They always split the track cars and street cars in an effort to try and keep the track cleaner for the faster cars which is greatly appreciated. There is nothing worse than loosing control in a high horsepower car. In all there were close to 150 cars that were participating in the drag event including a wicked 2004 turbo mustang mach 1. This car featured a 4.75 mod motor with a an 83mm turbo. Look out for this guy on the streets as his car is insanely fast.
10/5 Antron Brown takes the win at Keystone Nationals
This man is on fire with perfection in the first three countdown. His top fuel dragster was blazing quick and dialed in to perfection. The race car finished the night with a best run of 3.71 at 328.5MPH beating out long time teammate Tony Schumacher. This win now pushes brown to a 12-0 wich is tied with Robert Hights record set in 2009. ”You don’t go into the Countdown believing you’re going to win the first three races,” Brown said. ”That’s what you hope to do. ”
Also at the event Jack Beckaman beat out Chad Head in the Funny car division driving a 3.91 at 326.8 in his highly modified dodge Charger R/T. Beckman also broke the record for elapsed time for the third time this year with a 3.89. He now only trails the points leader Del Worsham by 16 points which he should be able to catch up if the car continues to run like this.
