Car Owners, Lonny Meyer & Bill Meyer

Crew - Brian Meyer

Best ET = 10.826, 123.50 mph

 

This rust-free jewel was found on the internet and over the past winter was transformed into a ground-pounding Nostalgia Super Stocker. Work included removing the original drivetrain and installing the drivetrain from our 1965 Dodge Coronet. Pictures below show how the work progressed. The car made its racing debut at Indianapolis Raceway Park, posting a 10.82 ET, very similar to the times the Dodge has posted. We are looking forward to a successful and FUN season of racing in Max Wedge Shootouts!

First race of 2001 we broke a ring gear. This should solve the housing flex that created that situation.
