I am reminding everyone that we have not mandated a time, nor do we have a time in mind, with regards to the mandated use of EFI in Pro2 - Pro4 or the Lucas OEM ProLite Engine (LOPE LS3) ProLite Engine platform. The stated rule DOES allow for the approved LOPE LS3 engine and/or EFI engine systems to compete in 2017. It DOES NOT state when these rules become mandatory. You can continue to use your current engine platform, as stated in some of the handouts that were given to the teams in prior meetings.
CORONA, California (January 21, 2017) – Cory McClenathan spent over 25 years working to become one of the best Top Fuel dragster drivers in National Hot Rod Association history. He was the first to go faster than 320 miles per hour in a quarter of a mile, the first to go down the quarter-mile track in less than 4.8 seconds, and he’s got 34 Top Fuel victories on his resume.
These days, however, his need for speed is being satisfied behind the steering wheel of the Pro Lite truck he drives in Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series regional competition. He is the only person in memory to try to move from straight-line pavement drag racing to rough-and-tumble short course off road.
