Super Street Nova.

From the GT section of Super Stock. Any engine ever made for a car may be used as long as it's from the same manufacturer. SS/GT has become the modern day hot rod.

Yes, that's a Porsche. No, I really doubt it has anything other than American HP under the hood. Running in Super Gas.

Then he probably tangled with the Lang brothers. I think mom Lang was racing then, too. They still run a wagon in stock.

There were a whole lot of Oregon cars here for the Division 6 part of this race. Lots of winners, too. Oregon is one of my favorite places to visit for camping and travel.

Part three. Dragsters and Top fuel Harleys

Duane Shields in the Peak Oil top Alcohol Dragster.

Chris Demke with the winning OSI T/AD. Alcohol is a bit misleading for this class of competition. The injected cars like the Peak machine are allowed to run nitro while the supercharged cars must run alcohol. If you watch these cars run on TV, you see the crew spray stuff in the blower hats of the supercharged cars. That's some sort of antifreeze as the methanol gets so cold that it will freeze the fuel system.

Tommy Grimes does his burn to the line in Top Fuel Harley. He was the winner with a run of 6.19 at 242 mph. One of the quickest runs by a bike ever.
